Meher Baba traveled to the West thirteen times, and six times to the United States. In Love Personified, the photographic account of Meher Baba’s life, one can see a profound record of how he made everyone who hosted him feel at home in his presence as he traveled, sowing seeds of love in hearts throughout the world. In 1952, 1956, and again during his last visit to the United States, in 1958, he and his mandali stayed at the Meher Spiritual Center in Myrtle Beach. He called this his home in the West, and said, “I never leave.” It was during his visit in 1952 that he had the first of two severe automobile accidents, the other one four years later in India. He explained that these two accidents, one shattering the left side of his body, the other the right side, were a modern-day equivalent of Christ’s crucifixion, and that this gross exchange in his own body would result in the East and West finally being united and "benefit to the whole world."
