    Dear Sisters and Brothers in Beloved Avatar Meher Baba,

    The Fifty-Fourth Amartithi of Beloved Avatar Meher Baba falls on Tuesday, 31st January 2023. The observance of the Fifty-Fourth Amartithi(Anniversary of Avatar Meher Baba’s Darshan) will be for two days, i.e.,from 12 noon on 30th January to 12 noon on 1st February 2023. The main function, as usual, will be on 31stJanuary 2023.

    ALL ARE HEARTILY WELCOME TO ATTEND AVATAR MEHER BABA’S FIFTY-FOURTH AMARTITHI FUNCTION AT MEHERABAD, ARANGAON,AHMEDNAGAR (M.S.)

    During Amartithi, from 6 a.m. on 30th January until 12 noon on 1st February 2023, a wooden railing will be placed in front of the sacred marble at Baba’s Samadhi. Instead of bowing down, pilgrims may enter the Samadhi and take Darshan by reaching over the railing and touching the marble.

    OBSERVANCE OF SILENCE

    Observing Silence from 12 noon to 12:15 p.m. on 31st January at Beloved Avatar Meher Baba’s Samadhi is the most significant event during Amartithi. It has been observed thatsome pilgrims, who may be new to Beloved Baba, are not aware of this and instead visit different places at Meherabad during this time. It is, therefore important that all Centers impress upon Baba lovers the importance of the Silence period so that they will be in attendance at the Samadhi during the observance of Silence.

    OTHER

    1) Meherabad Management requests all the pilgrims to use water very sparingly. Hot water for bathing will be provided from11:00 p.m. 30th January to 7:00 a.m. 31st January.

    4) During Amartithi, despite police and security arrangements, some thefts do occur. Therefore, pilgrims are cautioned to be very careful
    with their valuables, especially their purses, pouches, gold ornaments, mobiles, cameras and other items carried by hand.
    5) For their safety, pilgrims are asked to wear their Entry Tokens at all times and volunteers are deputed to inquire of anyone seen without a token.

    8) We do not know what the Corona situation will be in 3 months’ time. Keep in mind that the pandemic is not finished.
