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.

Dear Meher Center Family and Friends,

The Spring Cleaning Sahavas is planned for the weekend of March 14th-17th. And reservations for that time period are now open!

This is meant to be a time when Baba’s lovers of all ages come together and serve the Beloved at His home in the West. The focus of the event will be cleaning the buildings and grounds projects, all in the spirit of sahavas: the give and take of love between lover and Beloved.

Important Information:

  • Dates: Thursday, March 14th evening until Sunday, March 17th afternoon. Participants need to be here for the whole event. Your reservation can also include days before and after those dates.
  • How to register: Please contact the Gateway (843-272-5777, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., 7 days a week) to make a reservation and register for the event as soon as possible.
  • Center guests will be only those participating in the event. The Center will be closed to others during the Sahavas: Thursday evening, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
  • If you are staying off Center and wish to participate, you still have to register for the event with the Gateway and commit to full participation.
  • There will be communal meals on Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday lunch. Other meals will be on your own.
  • Come prepared to work, which will be physical for the most part– cleaning projects in public buildings 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
