Meherazad

More info ..

About fifteen miles from Meherabad lies “Meherazad,” the locality that became Meher Baba’s home in later years. Ostensibly for better water access, Meher Baba moved with His close men and women disciples to Meherazad in the 1940s, and, apart from the three years of the New Life, He made this place his home until He dropped His body in 1969.

Meherazad

Meherazad now consists of Meher Baba’s main residence building and simple structures that have provided accommodations for His men and women disciples. Within the Meherazad compound also stands the Meher Free Dispensary, a medical clinic for the benefit of nearby villagers, and archival storage for books, recordings, films and various items and materials associated with Meher Baba’s life. Within a few hundred yards lies Seclusion Hill, where Meher Baba periodically worked in seclusion and where pilgrims today can enjoy the atmosphere of this unique place connected with Baba’s Work.

Buses leave Meherabad Pilgrim Center three times a week to take visitors to Meherazad, where they can mingle with the remaining “Mandali,” or close disciples, hear talks or see films or music programs, and simply enjoy exploring the many remarkable aspects of Meherazad. Meher Baba’s room is open for visits and darshan, as is “Mandali Hall,” where He met with His disciples for work; and visitors can likewise explore the “Blue Bus,” “the New Life Caravan,” and “Mehera’s Garden” between the residence and Mandali Hall. Meherazad is currently open for such pilgrim visits on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, from 11:00am-12:30pm. (Meherazad remains the home of the few older disciples who have lived there since their life with Baba there, and so its visiting hours, unlike Meherabad, are relatively limited.)
