Jai Jai Meher, and keep your powder dry.))
I am a Boomer-vintage longtime Buddhist and follower of Meher Baba. I first recieved Meher Baba’s blessing at His Last Darshan in Poona in 1969. I first contacted the Buddhadharma centuries ago in Central Asia and China, and spent many lives in Chinese Buddhist monasteries atoning for crimes committed when I rode with Genghis Kahn.
I was ‘way into Chinese culture and Chinese Buddhism when Meher Baba shifted me to a life in America for His work. In America I spent many decades trying, and ultimately failing, to connect with Buddhism in its Asian forms, Online I was initially a proponent of American Buddhism, which bombed out as well. Meher Baba appeared to me in a dream and forbade me to return to the Chinese Fo Guang Shan sect, just when I was really getting hot for Taiwanese women in the general case.
So I obeyed my Master, and my mind then shifted back to Him and his Indian community. Since 2010 I visited Meher Baba’s sacred sites and Community in India four times, and was deeply engaged by His last living Mandali Bhau Kalchuri, who was a veiled Mahasiddha. Bhau became to me what Naropa was to Marpa the Translator; on his deathbed he gave me a massive all-purpose lineage transmission, which was the answer to all my failed searches for a Buddhadharma that works for me and other westerners in this life.
Hence this online Dharmakshetra in which I propound a new Buddhist lineage from Meher Baba as Maitreya Buddha, Bhau Kalchuri as Root Guru, and myself as 2nd Patriarch.
Even before Bhau’s transmission, I was a Bodhisattva and Tantric adept by previous attainment in Asia. I believe that Bhau and I had been Siddhas together in south India before I got involved in Buddhism in Central Asia and China. While I was doing that, Bhau went straight to God and wound up in the Avatar’s Circle in this life.
Namo Maitreya Meher,
