The following article is a series of transcripts from
tapes Bubba made on a portable recorder operated by Jerry
Sheinfeld, who was traveling with Bubba and serving him.
Bubba would occasionally sit down in a quiet place at one
Ashram or another and talk about the teacher there and his
community, often in quite critical terms, from the point of
view of understanding. He might also speak of other teachers
and broader topics-for instance, the distinction between
yogis, saints, and sages, and the function of the Siddhas –
but he always brought the discussion back to his particular
work and the role of the community of his devotees.
This selection, of transcripts includes an important
letter which Bubba sent back to the Ashram, then located in
Los Angeles, and a partial transcript of the talk he gave to
the Ashram the day after he returned.
The following is an excerpt from a
talk Bubba gave to his devotees in Los Angeles on Prasad
Day, April 8, 1973, several months before he departed on his
pilgrimage to India.
