All of this is presented and recounted in Creation and its Causes, a new major book edited under the auspices of the Avatar Meher Baba Trust and published by Sheriar foundation. Along with Baba’s talks to the Meher Ashram boys, the book includes six discourses that Baba gave to the mandali during this period, as well as a history of His work with the various schools—the Hazrat Babajan school, the Hazrat Babajan High school, the Meher Ashram, and the Prem Ashram—between 1925 and 1929.
As a critical edition, Creation and its Causes has been compiled and edited from an assortment of primary manuscripts, some of them in the Avatar Meher Baba Trust Archives and others housed in other archival collections around the world
Without a doubt Creation and its Causes will claim a major place in the body of Meher Baba’s literary oeuvre. Yet equally remarkable as the lectures themselves is the context in which they arose. For their audience was not comprised of seasoned disciples and mature students of Baba’s teachings, as the highly metaphysical character of these lectures might lead one to imagine. Rather, the recipients of this rarefied content were school boys, most of them in their early to middle teens.
