Hello Linus ! What is this place, it looks good. where can we read more about Avatar Meher Baba ? all the best john
When is this year's Urban Sahavas? And is there a schedule of events? I heard the Darshan reunion event is on the 4th, which is a Thursday and that seemed unusual.
A biography is being written about Baba's great friend John Starr Cooke (1920 - 1976). Cooke assisted generously with the purchase of Meher Mount back in the 1940s, and remained close to the Avatar of the Age until the end. Curiously, at Baba's funeral, Cooke's signature tune "Begin the Beguine" was played seven times. This biography will reveal much previously unknown information about a host of people and events, and will certainly contain new information on Meher Baba. Please consider contributing to the crowdfunding campaign to help bring the project to fruition!
Is the Center Open Every Day?
