MEHER BABA HOUSE

weekly schedule

We have started a God Speaks reading group once again, that meets on various Sunday early afternoons at Eric Teperman’s home. Anyone interested in joining us as we slowly work our way through this Monumental Work by Meher Baba should contact Eric at 718-426-0852 or at ericteperman@yahoo.com for dates and times.

GATHER ONLY FOR BABA'S SAKE  

Eruch Jessawala

Meher Baba lovers who gather together should keep in mind that they meet in love and service of their Beloved, and that they gather not for themselves nor for the group but for Meher Baba. They should hold Baba's presence uppermost in their hearts and in their minds, and in so doing, they will very naturally conduct themselves in the right manner knowing that He is present. This is the most important thing for any group.

Once Baba's presence is held in the heart everything will be set right, because if His presence is not felt, people will do whatever they want to do. But I am sure no one really would wish to 
behave in a manner other than if He were present. Therefore it should be always as Baba would want us to behave, because 
feeling His presence, the desire would be to please Him. That should be uppermost in the minds of Baba lovers.

YOU CANNOT ESCAPE, BUT YOU CAN BECOME DETACHED

Posted: 14 Aug 2017 11:30 AM PDT

Lord Meher, 1st. ed., Bhau Kalchuri, Vol 7, p. 2314.

 I am in all – in both great and petty things. All are nothing, so why give importance to anything? I take as much enjoyment in looking after the mad, being with the mandali, ordering my agents, looking after the great Universal work, as in bringing eggs to Hedi (Mertens) and mail for you all. You cannot escape petty things, because everything except God is petty. What you can do is to be detached. Use the petty things, but know they are petty and so remain unattached to them.

For example, false teeth are for eating; they are attached in your mouth. You know they are false and you can take them out; attached and detached, you make use of them.

The dirty body, which I call the walking latrine, is used for the soul to realize itself. Can you escape from it? You cannot escape its perspiration, so what you do is wash away the sweat. But if all day you go on brooding, “Why do I perspire? I must not perspire,” it is of no use. You cannot escape, but you can become detached.

Sunday In The Park – 
         a picnic event in Central Park with the Meher Baba House community

Sunday September 17th  1:00 PM to 4:00 PM 

Sunday In The Park – a picnic event in Central Park with the Meher Baba House community. 

Meet just inside the park entrance at 103rd Street and Central Park West (B and C trains, M10 bus all stop here). 

Assemble near the pond that's just to the right as you pass through the entrance. 
We will try to secure a shady lawn space near the pond. 

IF YOU ARRIVE LATE, be aware that in the event of overcrowding near the pond, we plan to find an alternate space by going UP THE STAIRS immediately to the LEFT of the 103rd Street entrance: 

follow the left-hand fork at the top — we will seek out a shaded area within view of the public restrooms at the left side of the circular walkway (the "Great Hill").

IN CASE OF RAIN this event will be rescheduled to a new date...if the weather is in doubt, 
call Paul or Shelly at 

718-216-6647 or 718-607-8272

At the end of January, 1965, this message from Baba
(previously dictated by him on December 18th, 1964),
was sent to his lovers for his seventy-first birthday:

"Be true to the trust I repose in you
and remember me wholeheartedly.
My love and blessing to you.
"

 

 

 

 

FACT  IS !  

MEHER BABA DRAWS PERSONS [SOULS] TO HIM
WHEN THEY ARE READY FOR  Surrender TO HIM

WHEN THEY ARE READY FOR 
A PUSH TOWARD THE PATH OF TRUE SPIRITUALITY.  

THIS  is the 'trust' he is reposing in each one thus quickened!

IT IS NOT THE INDIVIDUAL WHO CHOOSES TO BE ATTRACTED TO,  
OR TO FOLLOW MEHER BABA, REGARDLESS OF THE 
CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING ONE’S LIVING.

ALTHOUGH ALL ARE ONE IN BEING AND ESSENCE, 
THERE ARE DIFFERENCES IN EXPERIENCING BY INDIVIDUALS 
AND GROUPS OF BEINGS.

FOR THOSE ON WHOM HE HAS EXERTED HIS PULL, 
IT IS TO THEIR BENEFIT IF THEY BECOME MORE INCLUSIVE 
WITH OTHER DEVOTEES,
AND USE VARIOUS ACTIVITIES OF ANY GROUP EFFORT 
ON MEHER BABA'S BEHALF TO INTENSIFY AND 'TRUE' 
THEIR OWN FOCUS AND CONNECTION WITH THE MASTER.

THUS, GROUPS SUCH AS MEHER BABA HOUSE
HAVE FORMED TO CREATE A SPECIAL, LOVING SPACE
WHEREIN MEHER BABA’S PRESENCE
CAN BE FELT.

PARTICIPATION IS THE KEYNOTE TO INCLUSIVENESS.  

Isn't THIS 'being true to the trust He has reposed in us' ?

 

 

 

 

Legally, Baba House is a non-profit religious corporation, incorporated in the state of New York, 
having a charter, by­laws, officers and a board of trustees. 
In reality, however, Baba House is the center of the sum total of individual hearts of the Baba lovers 
who genuinely care about Baba House's existence and activities.

Baba house exists, in my opinion, in order that we have a place and/or time to help us try 
to remember, love and please
Meher Baba.

As far as the goal of Baba House, I am confident that only Meher Baba is in complete control 
and our sole purpose is to have activities 
that will keep us focused on him and help us to love 
and please him to the best of our abilities.
