‘The Life of Hafiz of Shiraz’

 

“If you would like to fill the world with beauty eternally, ask the morning breeze to lift for a moment the veil from your face.”

 

Peter Booth, a graduate of Harvard University, who was granted a scholarship by the Shah of Iran to study Farsi at the Ferdowsi University in Mashad, Iran from 1977 will offer a biography of Hafiz and read and translate couplets on selected themes, exploring the symbolism and spiritual meaning within this divine poetry so loved by Meher Baba. Peter, who was a resident of Meherabad for more than 30 years, will also share personal stories of his life with the Mandali.

 

This promises to be a rare encounter with a gifted and knowledgeable scholar who gives talks to Baba and other groups across the US.
