Amartithi means “Eternal Day,” or “Eternal Date,” and is the sacred and joyful observance honouring the date of 31st January 1969, when Avatar Meher Baba dropped His body at 12:15 pm, to live eternally in the hearts of His lovers. Usually thousands come to Meherabad for two or three days to take darshan at Meher Baba’s Samadhi and observe Silence together from 12 noon until 12:15 pm on 31st January. While people are in the darshan queue, Meher Baba’s lovers and pilgrims also take part in an “educational gathering” dedicated to Avatar Meher Baba, with a joyful program of devotional music, song, dance, drama, film, prayers and arti in the amphitheatre near the Samadhi on Meherabad Hill.
Due to ongoing Covid restrictions, we regret that there will again be no live gathering at Meherabad to observe Beloved Baba’s 53rd Amartithi anniversary on 31st January 2022. Again this year, as in 2021, we will join together in His Love and Remembrance through another virtual/online Amartithi program. You will be able to view the program streamed live on 30th Jan -1st Feb. on Avatar Meher Baba Meherabad Streams YouTube Channel. You can view the 52nd Amartithi 2021 program Click Here
If you wish to participate, please send your video by 15th December latest!

Meher Baba’s Birthday: At five in the morning on 25 February, pilgrims gather at Meher Baba’s Samadhi on Meherabad Hill for prayers and song in celebration of the birth of the Ancient One. Later in the day, an original drama, complete with full cast, sets, and music is staged in the Music and Arts Centre.
Silence Day: On 10 July 1925, Meher Baba began his long silence, which he kept for the next 44 years. Every 10 July pilgrims from all over the world come to Meherabad to commemorate this occasion through a day of silence.
Dhuni: The Dhuni of Meherabad was established by Baba on November 10th, 1925. Literally meaning ‘fire’, the Dhuni continues to be lit at sunset on the 12th of every month according to instructions given by Baba in 1942. (For a detailed history of the Dhuni refer to pages 3 and 9 of ‘Historic Meherabad’ found at ‘Meherabad’ on this website).
Young Adult Sahavas: Annually, 100 young adults from all over the world between the ages of 18 and 35 gather at Meherabad to spend seven days together in the company of the Ancient One. The keynote of the “Sahavas” is the celebration of Meher Baba’s love through sharing, creative expression (such as art, music, and drama), and service at Meherabad.
