Robert Dreyfuss was fortunate enough to meet Meher Baba in 1965, after an arduous journey hitchhiking across the globe to meet his Beloved.

Francis was an Australian Mandali member, poet, and deep lover of Meher Baba. In this recording from Mandali Hall in 2007, Robert sits with Meherwan Jessawalla, and shares memories of moments spent with Francis.

“Everybody was drawn to Him”

Naja Rustom Irani was Baba’s cousin, and grew up on the same lane as young Merwan in Pune. At the request of Baba’s mother Shireenmai, Naja began preparing and serving food to Baba at the age of twelve or thirteen. This was the start of a lifetime of service to the Avatar. She became one of Baba’s early female Mandali members, and spent the majority of her life cooking for Him in the ashram. In this talk, Naja shares stories from Baba’s childhood in Pune, the time period after Babajan’s Kiss, and the gathering of His early Mandali and formation of Manzil-e-Meem.
