At Meher Mount, communications is an important part of staying connected to those who have an ongoing interest in this place visited by Avatar Meher Baba.
Thus, maintaining Meher Mount’s contact database is a crucial part of communications. This task got easier with a grant from the Salesforce.com Foundation.
Meher Baba had stood out at the point near Baba’s Tree and asked Agnes Baron if she knew where the property corner was, pointing to Meher Mount’s southeast corner.
Her response was that the corner was down that rugged canyon, but she could not specify the corner exactly. Meher Baba “looked displeased,” Agnes said.
The Meher Mount logo -- created by graphic designer Nancy Pinckert and introduced in 2008 - represents the bringing together the meeting of heaven and earth, of land and sky, and of God and man.
After the October 14, 1985, New Life Fire at Meher Mount destroyed all the buildings, new living quarters were needed for Agnes Baron, the then caretaker. As an interim solution, a trailer was brought on the property for her residence.
However, with time, pests and use, the trailer deteriorated. In September 2007, the trailer was removed before it became a safety hazard at a cost of $4,000.
