“He made meaning of a senseless life”

Tex Hightower and Donald Mahler were dance students under Margaret Craske, one of Meher Baba’s close Western women disciples. Their lifelong association with Baba began when Tex met Baba at Meher Center in 1952 in the Lagoon Cabin after a harrowing airplane journey with several other dancers. Donald first met Baba in 1956 at the Delmonico Hotel in NYC. They were most fortunate to be among the prominent carriers of Baba’s lift chair on the Center in 1958. In this laugh-fest of a video, the fellow dancers share profound gems from their contact with Baba, and what they learned about discipleship by observing Margaret Craske’s enormous capacity to love.
