“ Life becomes meaningful and all activities are

purposeful only on the basis of faith in the enduring reality. 

    

 “ True knowledge is that knowledge which makes

man after self-realization or union with God assert

that his real Self is in everything and everybody. ”

 

The happiness of God-realization is self-sustained,

eternally fresh and unfailing, boundless and indescribable.

And it is for this happiness that the world has sprung into existence .

Meher Baba, born Merwan Sheriar Irani, was an Indian mystic and spiritual master who said he was theAvatar, God in human form. Merwan Sheriar Irani was born in 1894 and led a normal childhood, showing no particularly strong inclination toward spiritual matters. At the age of 19, a brief contact with the Muslim saint HazratBabajan began his seven-year process of spiritual transformation. Over the next months, he contacted four additional spiritual figures whom, along with Babajan, he called the "Five Perfect Masters". He spent seven years with one of these masters, UpasniMaharaj, before beginning his public work. The name "Meher Baba" means "compassionate father" in Persian and was given to him by his first followers.

From 10 July 1925 to the end of his life, Meher Baba maintained silence, communicating by means of an alphabet board or by unique hand gestures, With his mandali (circle of disciples), he spent long periods in seclusion, during which time he often fasted. He also travelled widely, held public gatherings and engaged in works of charity with lepers, the poor and the mentally ill.

In 1931, Meher Baba made the first of many visits to the West, where he attracted many followers. Throughout most of the 1940s, Meher Baba worked with a category of spiritual aspirant called masts, whom he said are entranced or spellbound by internal spiritual experiences. Starting in 1949, along with selected mandali, he traveled incognito about India in what he called the "New Life". Despite deteriorating health, he continued what he called his "Universal Work", which included fasting and seclusion, until his death on 31 January 1969. His samadhi (tomb-shrine) in Meherabad, India, has become a place of international pilgrimage.
