Rano Gayley was an artist, and one of Meher Baba’s early Western disciples who became a resident Meherazad Mandali until her death in 1986. Here she talks about the intimate times at the ashram, and Baba’s instructions to those living there; time spent in Myrtle Beach; and details of Baba’s 1952 automobile accident.

In this informal recording, Darwin Shaw, who was instrumental in the development of the Center, and his two daughters Leatrice and Renae, identify places that played a special role during Meher Baba’s visits in 1952, 1956 and 1958. They intersperse stories of their time with the Master as they show us the many spots around the Center where He gathered His lovers, and even the trees He rested under.

In 1933, Elizabeth Patterson filmed Meher Baba in India and Italy using a hand cranked 35mm movie camera. These short clips, painstakingly restored by the Meher Baba Film Archive International, are the only film record of that time.

This lovely video was created in celebration of what would have been Mehera’s 100th birthday in 2007. The clips of Mehera, and pictures of her with Meher Baba over 45 years with Him, are a testament to the divine beauty of Mehera’s unsurpassed love for her Beloved, and His love for her.

A note by Kacy Cook, from Meherazad:
It was quite important to Beloved Baba’s Mehera that during each Indian summer, March-May, a few flowers from her garden be offered to Baba in His room in preparation for morning and evening Arti. Sometimes due to the summer heat it was only a few marigolds or perhaps blossoms from a summer-blooming tree that made up the offering.
But this year during March and April the flowers in Baba and Mehera’s garden (and now too from the afforested areas) were in unusual and beautiful abundance and inspired some wonderful summer floral arrangements and offerings in Baba’s Room. They seemed to be an exceptional antidote to the pandemic and surely would have made dearest Mehera smile!
Supported by Karl Moeller’s enchanting music, here are photos from March and April 2020 to bring you into Beloved Baba’s Room and share in His beautiful Presence.
Beloved Avatar Meher Baba ki Jai!
