Including never-before-seen photographs from the newly digitized Elizabeth Chapin Patterson Photo Archive, Meher Baba’s Blue Bus Tours is a meticulously researched chronicle of Baba’s travels in India with His Western and Eastern women disciples, beginning in December 1938 and ending in November 1941.
Eruch Jessawala, Baba’s long-time disciple, once said: “The women were the custodians of the Blue Bus stories.” The author beautifully weaves the women’s voices–as well as extensive excerpts from the multiple diaries kept during the tours–throughout the narrative to provide a rare, behind-the-scenes look into the adventures and challenges that occurred during the Blue Bus Tours. Discourses given by Meher Baba in real time –on the road, in a museum, crossing a river–reveal the intense close companionship and spiritual training these journeys represented.
