Donald Mahler on Meher Baba
Donald Mahler gives his account of his contact with Meher Baba. Donald was one of a small group of dancers who had the rare privilege of performing for Meher Baba in the Barn at Meher Spiritual Center in 1956. According to Lord Meher...
"For the most part during his stay at the [Meher Spiritual] Center [Myrtle Beach], it was five of the dancers who had the privilege of carrying Baba's lift-chair: Jean Cebrun, Joe Fabian, Peter Saul, Donald Mahler and Tex Hightower. When Baba was about to sit in the car, one tried to help him out of the chair. Baba would always manage to throw the man off balance whenever he tried to help Baba, and Baba would also tweak the person's ear. That day, the women also took a turn in carrying their Beloved around the Center."
