Meher Baba in Zurich 1934

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.
