Amartithi - or Eternal Day - marks the day, January 31, 1969, when Avatar Meher Baba dropped His physical form. Tens of thousands of pilgrims gather in Meherabad, India, at His Samadhi (tomb shrine) and elsewhere around the world to commemorate this event.
Mehera J. Irani was his closest woman disciple whom Meher Baba described as the purest soul in the universe. Meher Baba said she loved Him as He ought to be loved.
At the first Amartithi in 1970, approximately 1,700 of His lovers gathered on Meherabad Hill. Mehera, fighting back the tears, read out this message.
daaman - Hem of a garment. As used by Meher Baba, holding on to His daaman implies holding onto Him. Means surrendering; becoming totally dependent upon the Master.
jai (also ki jai) - Hail, victory, glory. Ki is a suffix meaning to or belonging to.
