Which Is More Beautiful - Sunrise or Sunset?

Bill Le Page

Eruch Jessawalla, a close disciple of Avatar Meher Baba, narrates this conversation in which Meher Baba asks, "Which is more beautiful - sunrise or sunset?" The answer is an analogy regarding Meher Baba's Advent.

WHICH IS MORE BEAUTIFUL - SUNRISE OR SUNSET?

Eruch Jessawalla, a close disciple of Avatar Meher Baba, narrates this conversation in which Meher Baba asks Eruch:

"'Which is more beautiful - sunrise or sunset?'

'Sunset.'

'Correct,' replied Baba. 'And which are people more aware of sunrise or noon?'

'Sunrise.'

'Correct,' said Baba.

'It is like My Advent - with its dawning, people are aware something great is to happen.

'Yet when I am in your midst, few are aware of Me.

'But after I drop the body, then there will come the Glorification, and that will be so beautiful and stupendous that many will notice it and come flocking to me.'"
