When the fallen wood of Baba’s Tree was milled, three uniquely shaped logs were partly cut into planks, with half of each log left to be made into benches for use at Meher Mount.

On April 20-22, 2018, Harold Greene, the artisan woodworker who guided the milling process, returned to make these half logs into beautiful, organically shaped benches.

A CELEBRATION OF RENEWAL

The unveiling of the three new benches from Baba's Tree is an opportunity to celebrate Meher Mount's regeneration and renewal.

You are invited to the open house on Saturday, May 12, 2018, from Noon to 5:00 p.m. to join in this celebration. 

There will be a special arti (songs, prayers, quotes, poems).

OFFICIAL RE-OPENING OF MEHER MOUNT

The event also marks the official re-opening of Meher Mount after the December 2017 Thomas Fire. Most of the repair work is completed. Baba's Tree appears to be healing and is recovering in seclusion. And there is water and electricity.

The views are even more spectacular with the removal of the eucalyptus. The birds and other wildlife continue to call Meher Mount home. And Avatar Meher Baba's presence is always celebrated.

Meher Mount stands ready to welcome all. The open hours after the Open House are:

  • Saturday & Sunday - Noon to 5:00 p.m.
  • Or By Appointment - Call 805-640-0000 or email: info@mehermount.org
What you have to understand is that God and loving God are not child’s play. It is like drowning in an ocean of fire!
