A little more about Jim: For nearly 50 years, Jim Meyer has been involved in singing and recording music dedicated to Meher Baba and has performed at numerous Baba functions worldwide.

“An Early Dispensation: Meher Baba’s Message to Humanity During the First Flowering of Meherabad in the 1920s,” presented by Ward Parks
Ward will be presenting a 3-day seminar October 12, 13 and 14, with 90-minute sessions each morning and afternoon.
After the inauguration of His silence in July of 1925, Meher Baba began giving discourses and messages as never before. Most important among these was “The Book,” a 300-page manuscript in Baba’s own handwriting that He never allowed anyone to read and whose whereabouts still remains a mystery. During the same period Baba dictated a major treatise known as Infinite Intelligence, gave scores of talks to the mandali (recently published as Tiffin Lectures), and gave talks to the Meher Ashram school boys. All of this material adds up to a major dispensation from the Avatar that has gradually been getting published over the last fifteen years. These discourses considerably expand the vision and range of Meher Baba’s message to humanity. In this three-day program we will review this body of material, as well as the history of the early Meherabad Ashram out of which it arose.
If you stay on the Center that weekend, you are welcome to attend. If you live nearby and wish to participate, please contact the Dilruba office at 843-272-8793 to reserve your space!
