Will David's Painting of Meher Baba at Meher Mount

Margaret Magnus

By Margaret Magnus

In 1996, artist Will David visited Meher Mount and was inspired to paint Avatar Meher Baba with the 6,200-foot Topa Topa Bluffs in the background.

In the foreground, Meher Baba is seated in a chair. During His 1956 visit to Meher Mount, Meher Baba met with His followers in the guesthouse (since destroyed by fire in 1985) and sat in a similar chair.

The Bluffs, to the northeast of Meher Mount, are famous for the Ojai Valley's "pink moment" when the sunset casts a pinkish hue on the mountains. 

During His 1956 visit, Meher Baba gestured toward the outdoors and said:

"Now, go out and see the view and try to love Baba through nature. This is all due to my love. This whole creation, this nature, all the beauty you see, all came out of me."
