Amartithi, Jai Baba dear Baba Lovers, with heavy hearts, we have to announce that there will be no Educational Gathering to celebrate Beloved Baba’s 52nd Amartithi on 31st January 2021.
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.
