Avatar Meher Baba was born Merwan (Meherwan) Sheriar Irani into a Zoroastrian (Parsi) family in Pune, India, in 1894. During his teens and twenties, Merwan associated with and was proclaimed Avatar (‘descent of God into human form’) by five spiritual Masters from long-established Maharastran lineages within the Chistiyyah and Qalandari Sufi, and Hindu Datta avadhutas traditions. These figures: Hazrat Babajan (? 1790-1931), Sai Baba of Shirdi (1836-1918), Upasni Maharaj (1870-1941), Narayan Maharaj (1885-1945) and Tajuddin Baba (1861-1925) command pan-Indian followings.

Our guest for this year’s Spring Sahavas at Avatar’s Abode is Pratap Ahir.
Pratap met Meher Baba when he was just 14 and quite innocent. This was at Mahabaleshwar on October 16th 1950 – the first Anniversary of the beginning of Baba’s New Life, a very important day in Baba’s Avataric mission – when, for just four hours Baba stepped back into His Old Life. Soon after this, at their third meeting, for which Baba had specifically called Pratap to Him at Mahabaleshwar, Baba spelled out, “You are very lucky. Because of your very old connection with me, now you have come to me at such a young age.”
