“Every day of our lives is a spiritual power that is helping us”

In 1927, Meher Baba established the Meher Ashram, a full academic and spiritual academy, in Meherabad. In this interview conducted by Irwin Luck in 1971, Khodayar Namiranian—sitting alongside fellow students Esfandiar Vesali and Sheriar Mehrabanpour—shares a glimpse into the lives of the boys who attended the school, and their utter devotion to Meher Baba.

“A joyous going forward”

In this recording, Mani Irani, Meher Baba’s sister, tackles the topic of death. She shares with us how death is a joyous occasion for the departed, even if it is painful for those left behind. She helps us understand with anecdotes about Baba’s own dealings with death throughout His lifetime, and His repeated message that death is no different than changing clothes; that death is always a relief for the soul who has moved on. As Mani says, “It’s always … a joyous going forward. It’s never anything else.”

“The most outstanding person”

In this video, Louis and Vivian Agostini share glimpses of their experiences with Baba. Louis worked for Paul Brunton, the spiritual thinker who wrote The Search for Secret India. Initially, Louis was put off by Brunton’s unflattering description of Meher Baba. But when Louis read God Speaks, its “depth and simplicity” changed the course of his life. Vivian, an artist, describes her deep desire to create a likeness of Baba. She eventually created a small Baba medal trying to capture the “unforgettable grandeur of expression in His eyes.” Mani told her that Baba was very pleased with it, and that it was one of the best portraits done of Him.
