Baba’s Birthday Celebration Schedule

“If you are convinced of God’s existence then it rests with you to seek Him, to see Him and to realize Him. Do not search for God outside of you. God can only be found within you, for His only abode is the heart.”

 Meher Baba  

Welcome to Baba’s Birthday Gathering with Meher Center. We are so happy to celebrate with you!

Friday, February 25 

5:00 a.m: “Happy Birthday” in Baba’s Bedroom

For many years, Baba’s birthday at Meherazad began when His close ones gathered around His bed at the hour of His birth to sing Him “Happy Birthday” and say the prayers. We have continued this tradition at the Center over the decades by gathering in Baba’s room at 5 a.m. While we cannot be together physically this year, we will be together in Baba’s room virtually via Live Streaming.
