Ellen: I'd heard of Meher Baba about thirty years ago, and I got busy with my life, put it on the back burner, and just started reading about Him again recently.
Question: And did you all see the ads in the papers?
All three: Yeah!
Teresa: The funny thing is, I didn't know anything
about Him, and I didn't know you knew anything about Him, Ellen.
But I'd been reading the ads, because I get the Chronicle every day.
I've just been reading everything in the ads, for as long as they've
been in there. And thinking, "Oh, gosh, do I want to go up there
by myself, do I want to drive up?"
Ellen: Yeah, that's great, that worked out well!
Question: (pointing to Brad) And how'd you manage to get here?
Brad: (pointing to Ellen) I'm with her.
Ellen: Yeah, I forced him to come along (everyone laughs)!
Teresa: He's our driver--our protector.
Question: Did the film speak to you and did you feel Baba?
Teresa: Yeah, it was great! It was fascinating. Really interesting. I used to do a lot of spiritual studies when I was in college, and I just totally missed this one. I mean, one thing I was thinking about was "How did I miss this?" I was into everything, reading everything, about Yogananda and what was going on in the East and West, and I missed this whole thing. So I'm fascinated. I'll probably read the book when you're done with it, Ellenmaybe before you're done with it! (laughter)
Ellen: Yeah, maybe, I'll have to start it all over again, I think I pulled my bookmark out. I need to start this one over again.
Question: Which book?
Ellen: God Speaks. I got part way through and went out and bought Listen, Humanity.
