About Meher Baba

Meher Baba in Zurich 1934

Meher Baba was born in 1894 into a Zoroastrian family in Pune India.

During his teens and twenties he came into contact with five spiritual masters from Hindu and Sufi Muslim traditions. Hazrat Babajan, Sai Baba of Shirdi, Tajuddin Baba, Upasni Maharaj, and Narayan Maharaj came from long established spiritual lineages and they still today have large numbers of devotees in India and the rest of the world. Each of them came to recognize and proclaim Merwan as Avatar, meaning ‘descent of God into human form’.

When Merwan started to gather his own devotees, now generally known as ‘Baba Lovers’, they started to call him Meher Baba, meaning Compassionate Father.
