“Finding water in a desert”

Edith Bradbury had sensed the presence of God since childhood, but as an adult she began actively seeking Him. This search brought her by the late 1940’s to the Sufi leader Murshida Ivy Duce, who told her about Meher Baba. In this talk, Edith discusses her connection with Baba, including meeting Him for the first time in the Lagoon Cabin in 1952, when she fell tearfully into His arms.

Here, they share lesser known details about Meherabad Hill and its early residents, exhibiting their love for the pilgrimage site and their hospitable and loving nature toward the greater Baba family.

“Good Bye Baba”

Katie Irani, one of Meher Baba’s close Eastern Mandali, talks here about Baba’s announcement of the New Life. She shares her shock, and His order for Katie to go to Bombay and get a job. All who were left behind were still under Him even though He claimed that they would never see Him again. This video displays the love, obedience and surrender expected of His disciples during the New Life and after. Katie’s story ends with humor and a beautiful Huma Ghazal.

The Meher Spiritual Center and Meher Baba’s New Life

Many remain unaware of the significant connections between the Meher Spiritual Center and Meher Baba’s New Life. During the New Life, Meher Baba sold nearly everything He owned and ceased communication with His lovers who were not joining Him on His journey of “hopelessness and helplessness.” However, the Meher Center was one of two properties that remained in His name during the New Life period, and He kept up correspondence with Elizabeth Patterson and Norina Matchabelli regarding their work on the Center throughout. In this video, Jamie and Zo Newell explore these and other deep connections between Meher Spiritual Center and Meher Baba’s New Life.
