Meher Baba at Brookgreen Gardens and the Delmonico Hotel

The first part of this offering is an informal recording by Mike Loftus of Meher Baba’s visit to Brookgreen Gardens. We hear highlights of the afternoon, including the joyful crowd moving through the gardens as Baba notes sculptural pieces; Baba stopping under a tree to describe a memory of Buddha’s enlightenment; and Tex Hightower giving Baba sandals he made. Later, the recording switches to a press conference at the Delmonico Hotel in New York. Baba covers topics including His silence, the Avatar, and God’s presence in everyone. At the end of the recording, Baba leaves the room and Adi K. Irani continues to answer questions.
