1949-52: The New Life

On 16 October 1949, Meher Baba dissociated himself from the places, possessions, and connections that he had maintained until that time and embarked on what he called a “New Life” of complete helplessness and hopelessness in total reliance of God. During the next three years he appears to have voluntarily given up his state of Perfect Master in order to embrace the role of Perfect Seeker. This phase culminated in early 1952 with what he called “Manonash” or “annihilation of the mind.”
