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