HIS IS THE GREATEST MISSION
When the Ancient One comes, he awakens a section of humanity toward divine love, but afterward that race of people establishes a prison of religion in his name. That race practices jealousy and hatred instead of brotherhood and love; thus one finds several religions existing in the world at the end of any cycle. Meher Baba, being the last Avatar of this cycle, has to bring all the religions, sects, cults and isms together, and he accomplishes this by breaking down each of the religious orthodoxies.
Meher Baba is the greatest of the Avatars of this cycle, because he is for all races of humanity. His universal work is the culmination of all the work of all previous Avatars. Meher Baba observed silence in this age, yet he gave more words, messages, discourses and books of Truth to the world than any previous Avatar has ever done before. Meher Baba lived most of his life in seclusion, yet he traveled more than any previous Avatar has ever done before. Meher Baba gave his physical contact to many thousands of people in the world, more than any previous Avatar. No past Avatar has contacted so many races of mankind. He contacted the masts and revealed more about God-intoxication than any previous Avatar. Therefore, his work will benefit the world more than any of the previous Avatars.
Meher Baba's universal work will sum up all his previous Avataric advents and will culminate during this Avataric period. The people of each religion of the world will recognize him as the same Ancient One, who appeared in the form of Zarathustra, Ram, Krishna, Buddha, Jesus and Mohammed.
Meher Baba has brought to a culminating point all the universal work completed in past Avataric periods of this cycle. He has done more work in this cycle, hence his manifestation will be the greatest in this cycle of cycles. Meher Baba is the last Avatar of this cycle and he has worked for each and every human being to bring them to a deeper, inner level of consciousness thus they can intuitively experience oneness with God. The culminating point of his universal work will be when mankind feels its oneness with God. This culminating point will mark his greatest manifestation on earth.
The whole of humanity will feel oneness in the love of God. Jealousy, hatred, greed, selfishness, pride, lust and anger will be wiped out significantly through the force of his love released during his manifestation. Only when this love is experienced will humanity be freed from its own prisons of religion to feel and enjoy oneness in the love of God.
