The Happiest Camel
by Rita Gordon Siglain
Jingle Baba: the Happiest Camel is a heart-warming
story about the love between a camel from the London Zoo
and the Unique Spiritual Master and World-Teacher Adi
Da Samraj. Bhagavan spent a lot of time with Jingle Baba
whenever He was residing at the
Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary. He considered Jingle
Baba a close intimate of His, and Jingle Baba exhibited
such devotion and sensitivity to Bhagavan throughout the
years that Bhagavan honored him profoundly by calling
him His “Messenger”!

Throughout history there have been many inspiring stories
about non-humans who have sought the company of great
saints and spiritual beings—for example, Ramana Maharshi's
beloved cow Lakshmi, Meher Baba's dogs, as well as the
many non-humans who flocked to St. Francis of Assisi,
the patron saint of animals. Stories about non-humans
with exceptional sensitivity to the Spirit, to what is
beyond and greater than conventional life, have appealed
to all people, no matter what culture or religion. Just
so, I'm sure that the story about the camel Jingle Baba
and Bhagavan Adi Da's Love and Compassion for all beings
will delight children and people of all ages and cultures.

SO YOU KNOW — All profit from the sale of this book

I just read your book. Tears came to my eyes. I think
it is great! Thank you for all your efforts to bring it
into being. I picture it being translated in many languages!
It is really wonderful. What a great way
to tell children about Jingle Baba, and also to honor
the other animals that Beloved had a relationship with
at Fear-No-More Zoo on the Sanctuary. So sweet.
