From the book’s forward, by Mehera Kerawalla-Arjani:
“Dear Reader, the memoir you are reading is not just the story of Meherwan Jessawala’s life with Meher Baba, But also the story of his remarkable family…
“As you read, you will get some idea of the complete surrender to Baba’s Will that the Jessawala family’s life embodied. Their surrender was total— mind, body and soul were His, as was everything they owned. Whether Baba said 'Come and be with Me' or 'Go and live in Bangalore or Jabalpur', the family never asked why. Stories of how Baba treated Bindra House, their home in Pune, as His own abound. This was the last place Baba had them settle, ostensibly for a short period. Their longing to be with Baba in His home at Meherazad was intense, but their resignation to His Wish was absolute. Their reward for accepting living apart from Him was His pleasure at their obedience and His confidence in their attention to his needs at any time of the day or night. These stories will make you laugh and make you cry...”
Meherwan Jessawala was the last surviving member of this unique family. This book is an edited transcription of over 50 hours of videotape recorded by Ward Parks in the late 1990’s, during which Meherwan tells his story from beginning to end.
