Journey with God

Meher Baba first declared His Avatarhood during a tour through Andhra Pradesh in 1954. In this video, we see footage of that tour: the thousands of people who came to be in Baba’s presence, and the loving personal contact He managed to make with individuals amidst the crowd. We also hear from Baba’s Mandali who were on the trip about what it was like to travel with Baba through the region and watch Him pour out His love.

The Lord of Love

The Lord of Love is a beautiful compilation of four short films of Meher Baba. It shows our Beloved in Dehradun, India in 1954; Baba’s first journey to Australia in 1956; His 64th Birthday celebration in Meherabad in 1958; and delightful times in Poona—including spending time at Guruprasad and enjoying the nature walks and gardens—in 1961. A lovely soundtrack adds a flavor of devotion to His intimate presence.

Meher Baba’s Call

Edited by Chris Riger from the original 35 mm footage, this film features the 1954 men’s savahas at Meherabad, India, which came to be know as the “Three Incredible Weeks.” Narrated by Darwin Shaw, an early American devotee of Meher Baba and an attendee at the event, the film succeeds beautifully in conveying the spirit of the savahas.
