How a Master Works
By Murshida Ivy O. Duce
From 1947 until her passing in 1981, Ivy Duce was the Murshida (leader) of a Sufi lineage in the West which Meher Baba recreated under his guidance as Sufism Reoriented. Murshida Duce was a central figure in many phases of Meher Baba’s work, not only as a disciple of the Master but also as the only spiritual teacher directly appointed by Meher Baba. In this monumental “teaching book,” she combines these two roles, using the story of her own life with Meher Baba to illustrate the methods of an authentic spiritual master. This theme is elaborated with supplemental material culled by Murshida Duce from a wide range of spiritual sources.
