"The personal disaster, for some years foretold by me, at last happened while crossing the American continent — causing me through facial injuries, a broken leg and broken arm, much mental and physical suffering. It was necessary that it should happen in America. God willed it so."
—Meher Baba

"The Greatest of My Sufferings"


This documentary film of Meher Baba’s vitally important mission in America begins with Baba’s early contacts with His Western disciples and culminates with the fateful automobile accident near Prague, Oklahoma. Over two years in the making, the production is a multi-textured presentation of eloquent narration, poignant quotes, vintage and contemporary still photographs, graphics, audio and video recordings, and inspired music. 

The film previewed to great acclaim at the 11th Annual Meher Baba Legacy Program 'Discovering the Avataric Treasure' recently held at Meherabad, India.

— Diana and Bill LePage

“I’m truly moved by the majesty of this documentary...
It communicates with astounding clarity, intention, 
and so much heart that it brings Baba’s presence.” 
— Lynne Berry

"Watching it was a great experience and I have discovered 
my own title for this as 'The Tears of Gratitude.'"
— Gokaran Shrivastava

“Precious inner touch came from this video. 
It’s already one of the classic films of the Avatar.” 
— Charlie Mills

“A masterpiece of spiritual history...“ 
— Naosherwan Nalavala
