Three regular meetings take place on the Center each week, allowing guests and community members to spend time together reading books on Baba; discussing His life and message; or sharing music, poems, and stories.

Discourse Meetings

Monday, 8 p.m., Meher Center Reading Room

Written in the 1940’s, Discourses is among Meher Baba’s primary works that shines the light of true knowledge on life’s perplexing problems. This book serves as a practical guide for the determined seeker navigating the spiritual path.

The reading of Discourses at the Center is one of the four purposes stated in the Meher Center Charter written by Meher Baba Himself. The purpose of these weekly gatherings is to examine and attempt to absorb the wisdom embedded in the words of the Avatar of the Age. Participants take turns reading aloud from the book and afterwards there is a brief discussion on the selected chapter. The Discourses provide the reader with Meher Baba’s blueprint on how to live His life of love and truth.

All are welcome to join in the reading of this spiritual classic.

Celebrating the Divine

Tuesday, 8 p.m., Meher Center Reading Room

This sharing of poetry, music and readings is an informal way of sharing God’s love and presence in our lives. While words cannot begin to describe the complex charms of being with the divine Beloved, they do have power to weave this experience magically into poetry, songs and prose.

The gathering welcomes guests to bring their own brief offerings or those of master crafters to share with the group. Rumi, Hafiz, St Theresa of Avila and Kabir always end up making it to the circles, we wonder why! Have nothing to share? You are still welcome to just listen and be inspired by the works of these greats.

Book Readings

Saturday, 2:30-3:30 p.m., Meher Center Reading Room

On Saturday afternoons, there is an opportunity to remember Baba’s close women Mandali by reading about and discussing their extraordinary lives. Readings alternate between the three-volume set of Mehera-Meher by David Fenster, about Baba’s beloved, Mehera, and the two-volume set of The Joyous Path: The Life of Meher Baba’s Sister Mani by Heather Nadel. Extra copies of each are available at the program.
