Welcome to the website
of the Phiroz Mehta Trust

Our charity promotes the study and practise of the world’s great religions and the art of religious living, which is truly Human Living.

We do not aim to make converts, or to list things in which to believe.

Our founder, Phiroz Mehta, always insisted that he be regarded not as a guru or leader of any movement, but essentially as a fellow student. He regarded every person as being unique, discovering truth through his or her own way of life.

Start exploring what it means to be truly human:

I was active in the PM Group for 10 years in the 70's and would be interested to contact anyone who remembers me from that time.

A very good expression of yin and yang, the sec's of dimetional thinking toward spritual awareness, and great enlightenment. Thank you.

Hari Krshna! Lord you sound so beautiful! May the supreme lotus blossoms of Brahma keep you in peace and heavenly harmony!

Beyond the Begging. We must agree that the roots to everything must have been nothing. The question often asked, how can something come from nothing? We cannot imagine the answer, as the forces involved are so humongous it is impossible to measure as we are part of. Everything has gravity and they are swirling around, compressing and expanding one another. Where these forces collide is where we came from.

THE BIG NOTHING WANTS TO SEE WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE SOMETHING.

We are the worlds best natural selection, with only a few species that can decide the gender of their offspring, guaranteeing survival. New life forms called "ARKIA" breathing iron and surviving lengthy periods in hostile environments. The search for dark matter and the earth’s rotation is slowing down every year.
Which planet will be first?
Seeking the Absolute.

Excellent - Your "founder" is "remarkable" . I listened / recorded his "thoughts" about the 'Yoga - the Heart of Religion'.

Edward T. Rivas

Thoughts create and design many webs, it is easy to get caught like a fly :).

Gross Gott! My name is David and I listen to here in Deutschland(Germany) over the internet. I listen to in the office while I work. Thank you for alles!

David

I have searched without success in the United States to find a book outlet to purchase Phiroz Mehta's books and publications. If there is such a source, please email me at your earliest convenience. Namaste.

Shalom rav... YHWH bless you as I was sitting at my PC and it was Sabbath I wanted music to lift me up, so I turned on WM.com and went down the list. I clicked on and found you! To my awe I have been searching for Kabbalah teaching to futher my walk to the kingdom here and after. At first I was going to turn you off as you spoke that X-mas was KO DESH... As you well know it has its place in pagen worship of the Sun... Nimrod But as you see I didn't, and I fell to the floor to thank YHWH for allowing my spirit to continue to grow in power. I am but one who has heard His calling out of the place called flesh, to find a deeper walk with Him ,YAhshweh… And I have been using Yahushua for the past thirty years, and I know His name as I am known of him. He is a priest high above all others. His teachings are my foot steps. TO -DA- RABAH ...Batayah.

Wonderful to see that others are saying it is possible to transcend the world of things, and still live in it. In God's Peace.

This is the first time for me to enter the world of religion, which gives me a refreshing feeling driving the old self from the dirty not mentioned at this moment. Thanks.

The religion is undoubtedly a spiritual comfort to us all, especially when we are in trouble. Once a friend of mine showed me a Bible which had been given to him by an American tourist in China. I was fascinated by the sacred words, the taste quite different from what I had learned for so many years at school or on my own. I skillfully expressed my desire that I was eager to have a look. My friend on the other hand did not mind letting me enjoy the pleasure. However,one day my uncle happened to see me for a casual visit, at the end before he began to say good-bye, my little child presented the huge book to my uncle, intended to show off the strangest book that he had ever had. My uncle was always a prudent person who seldom accepted anything from others,but this time he became another man when he immediately took up the book and recognized its value, showing great joy with the book carerully wrapped and to my surprise he never mentioned the book again in my presence in fear that I might ask him to return it. How I regretted losing my treasure. Would you please send me one in the near future?

Christian Cherry

Thank you for fate would have me find this page during a trial period in my life. I have been religious for 55 years. I never chose my own religion. Your site will make an importance impact on my life. Thanks so much.

The love of christ can be found all across the world. God = Love and He yearns to give us understanding and wisdom.

Jeremiah

I found this website 6 months ago and now it has become an evening ritual. Since I do not a participate in organized religion I consider this to be my healthy daily dose of enlightenment. It is great to be able to read and/or listen to these teachings. I recommend it to everyone.

Brittan Holley

Very insightful and honest. Your site is a blessing for which I thank you.

Eri

Lets talk about Hinduism, the religion which has been the divine power for all religions and which has passed a straight message to all people of all religions and all feel they were Hindus at a time. Lets join hands and go to the true light which lies inside you, deep in your heart. Bring it out and feel the Hinduism inside you and say hey ram and welcome to my world.

Atul Arora

Jesus Christ - the way the truth and the life; no one comes to the father but by me.

Religion and Mythology and Symbolics at its best, expressed through the organism Phiroz Metha. Im very grateful for this website. I listen with joy!

Erik Hillebrand

Wow! Thank you so much for making the talks available over the net - they really make a difference to my day.

Please let me know if there are any contact people or study groups in Toronto Canada. Please pass on my email address to the appropriate person if so.

Peace.

Kamalam

This is wonderful to hear these talks, it's one thing to read true religious teachings, but I find hearing a voice is more intimate, and the energy of the speaker is so centering, I am a searcher of truth and awareness and this website is a welcome and refreshing discovery.

Jagran Kiran

I thank all in advance who stand and identify with expression that we have been taught from the beginning, as we are now .... With Love, As Always, In All Ways, STILL Loving You, It is STILL me-Truly Yours, Una.

Una Maria Galan "Seeker Of The Absolute Truth"

Thank you so much for your broadcasts, they have been positively inspirational. It is delightful to hear the truth.

John Stassen

It is wonderful that I found your website. My wife Nene Yang left me in January of 2004, and this last year has been the most stressful of my life. Now, thanks to this site, I believe I am back on track.

Godfrey Tanku Tachambong

I found Phiroz Mehta talking on a web radio broadcast. I'm glad that the first thing I found was this. He sounded like a real wise man and I listened with interest and form that a few of my mental dimmer switches were brightened up.

Dennis

Thank you.

David Mackie

Thank you for the web site. It is a great inspiration to my daily practice.

David Mackie

How quaint a speech it was, half the world starves, whilst the other half watches on tv, no compassion here, the suicide bomber giving his all, he has more profound existentialism than this empty talker.

Peter

Very helpful to my practice - thank you.

David Mackie

The work of the spirit continues. Thank you for making these talks available on the net.

David Mackie

These talks are brilliant! Thank you Phiroz Mehta for your insights into the dharma.

One of his best lectures I've heard so far. Well worth listening to twice, I may add.

Dr. Gary W Pearson

I am so grateful to have discovered the daily talks of Phiroz Mehta. His words are alive and open something alive in me.

Angela Peachey

There is always something with which I can to relate to in my life in these daily talks. Thank you for broadcasting them.

I liked your site.

Peter Jones

Pleased… we must eat to live, not live to eat, for the body is a rotory through which we grasp the catharsis to come into a divine light or enlightenment.

Dauid Ashi Rama

I am delighted to find this website. Over many years I have returned time and again to Phiroz Mehta's book "The Heart Of Religion" to draw upon the wisdom contained in it. It is a truly inspiring book of wonderful scope and depth.

David Mc Dowell

Excellent.

George Albert Sanguinetti

Fantastic! I love this site. Thank you.

Juan Francisco Lopez

I was looking for some knowledge to help me in most difficult times of my life. I a from India land full of scriptures and wisdom. I went on the internet looking for sites. I am fortunate that I found Mr.Mehta's web site this is almost one year ago. I have been listening to his site almost everday. I have understood fro his talks that we are all divine beings but misguided and covered by self and external world and caught up in "isms" and dogmatic ideas that my "isms " are better than yours.

K. P. Reddy

I am writing this follow up of my last email.I still listen to them almost everyday.His thoughts are very inciteful with deep meaning. You can understand the depth only if you can open the doors and windows of the preconceived and dogmatic mind. His talks are thought provoking and peace seeking for me in my quest for peace.

K. P. Reddy

Everlasting thanks to those who preserved these spiritual talks.

Kathie

São palavras de um sabio, sou muito grato pelo web site e´ a visão de um homen que realizou Deus.

Marcos Gualberto

A real spiritual and universal inspiration: Wisdom without boundaries in the light of unity.

Marcos Gualberto

Now I’m starting to understand the meaning of “life is eternal”, although physically he is not with us today, his thoughts and words still triggered something within. There is only one universal mind, these daily talks help individuals to connect and realise what we already have. Thanks for sharing the words of Wisdom.

Jean-Paul

I would like to be able to listen to a talk by specifying the actual talk number, e.g. D306, or date of talk eg. 29/4/75. Also would like to be able to scroll down a full list rather than keep clicking on next page. Basically, the search facility is cumbersome, at least for me. Thank you.

Liz David

Change moment to moment is inevitable, this website now has a new look, reflecting this movement. Pause, observe, ponder and reflect in your quiet moments, is all that is required.

Our appreciation to those that undertook this project.

'Kingfisher'

This beautiful site will change lives; it changed mine.

William Grice

At last the great work is done - I mean the completion of the recording of most if not all of Phiroz Mehta onto the computer, thus facillitating his gems of insight to a wider listening public. I personally listen to one of his talks most days time permitting; they are an inspiration. He truly was a great teacher. I know he never looked on himself as such, but it is only fitting they be kept for posterity. I never met him personally but through his books and these talks you get a glimpse into the way things really are… Thank you to all involved.
