As the strangers begin to leave the heart, it becomes cleaner and purer. Then God peeks into it, and His all-loving glance wipes out all worries. And the glimpse of God that one experiences leaves no scope for any doubts about His sweet will that manifests through “good” and “bad” times.

Meher Baba

Dear Meher Center Family and Friends,

Our first annual Spring Cleaning Sahavas is planned for Friday, March 10 through Sunday, March 12, 2023. This is meant to be a time when Baba’s lovers of all ages can come together and serve the Beloved at His home in the West.

The focus of the event will be cleaning projects and outdoor work on the grounds for the coming year, all in the spirit of sahavas—the give and take between lover and Beloved.

A few details:

  • The Spring Cleaning Sahavas will take place March 10-12. Participation in the sahavas is only for those with reservations to stay on Center that weekend.
  • We encourage participants to arrive March 9, as the first activity is Friday afternoon, March 10. Your reservation can also include days before and after those dates.
  • Please fill out and submit the registration form and also contact the Gateway as soon as possible to make a reservation at 843-272-5777 or [email protected].
  • Meher Center will be closed Friday through Sunday to all other visitors so that this work can take place.
  • Participants from the Myrtle Beach community are certainly welcome, as long as they are registered and are staying on Center for the Sahavas.
  • All ages are welcome!
  • There will be three communal meals: Friday dinner, Saturday dinner, and Sunday lunch. Other meals will be on your own.
  • Come prepared to work, which will be physical for the most part—cleaning projects and outdoor work on the grounds.

I want to close with an excerpt from an interview with Kitty, which appears in the video, I Am The One Reality. In the interview she talks about the purpose of the Center as she had come to experience it through the years.

“Baba wanted to have a place where we could all come together and share.  Baba’s greatest lesson, I think, is that we must share with each other. He wanted a Center where Easterners and Westerners from all over the world could come and live the way of life which He wanted—which was sharing with one another the feeling of Oneness amongst each other. You can talk about God in the Center as easily as you can talk about your profession, or car, or your family life. It is a topic that all people are interested in. It is the goal of life: to find God as your real self.”

If you would like to participate in this gathering, we look forward to hearing from you soon!

In Baba’s love and service,

Buz Connor
