Silence Day Special Announcement

Much love to all! Please forward this information to anyone who might be interested…

With only a month to go before Silence Day, planning is already in full swing! Here are all the ways to participate ~

Registration Form: https://forms.gle/pSreeVnymHoGKk567 The deadline to send in a video is June 20, 2021. The pre-recorded program will be played as one of our offerings for the Baba Zoom Silence Day Sahavas!

2. Silence Day Personalized Quote

Jeff Wolverton has a collection of 650 excellent Baba quotes that I have decorated with original artwork (designed for you to color, if so moved!) Everyone listed in the Community Directory will get one randomly selected quote via email.

This meeting will be recorded and re-played as part of our Silence Day Sahavas! For login info, please see babazoom.net and click on “events.”

4. Silence Day Sahavas

Last year this event was very powerful and well received. We will still be able to communicate via chat within Zoom… so we can enjoy each other’s company, without breaking our silence, as we watch Baba-related videos together. As with all Baba Zoom events, come and go freely!

9am Arti prayers recited silently following a recording
9.15am Pre-recorded videos all day, including a Baba movie, the Meheram7 program and the Quote Sharing Meeting (all details will be posted on the calendar)

News update

Jai Meher Baba!

*Between the years of 2001-2004, I was videotaping the speakers at Meher Baba House and the Northeast Gathering. I have had some help digitizing all the tapes – yippee! Some 60+ videos are coming online over the course of the next week or so (raw unedited footage). To see them all, visit babazoom.net, and click on Baba-tube, and then click on the very first link. Some amazing treasures and memories…

*For those interested in the progress of the Emergency Fund for India, our funds are helping real people in Arangaon, Meherabad, Pune, Dehra Dun, Ajmer and Mumbai! Pretty amazing how Baba works. Please consider chipping in a little more even if you have already donated! Here is the link to the GoFundMe: gf.me/u/zrhpsy 

*Last Tuesday June 1, the Zoom login passcode was updated. This information is always posted under “meeting info” found on the events page of babazoom.net.

*And, like last year, we will have a Silence Day Sahavas all day on July 10! More details on the calendar. Look forward to a pre-Silence Day personalized quote in your email box, which we will share with each other and Jeff Wolverton in a Zoom meeting on July 9!
*You must be on our email list to receive a personalized quote*

Much love and many prayers to everyone around the world, 

In His warm embrace,
Angela

An update on the GoFundMe for Coronavirus relief in India

May 6, 2021

Jai Meher Baba!
Here is the link to the fundraiser: gf.me/u/zrhpsy

The outpouring of love and support for those who are suffering from COVID in India is overwhelming and awesome! So much has happened in the mere 10 days since the fundraiser was opened. Many thanks to all who have participated in this project. We will keep the funding open for some time, since the pandemic is still spreading.

I continually update the fundraiser description as things change, and also post updates about successes experienced by each team. (click on updates, and then click on “see older updates” in order to see all the progress being made). At the moment, there are three teams headed up by Baba lovers, working in Meherabad area and in Mumbai. I am currently researching others in other big cities so that we can personally support those who are directly helping others.

The Meherabad-based team called Meheram7 (the ones heavily involved in editing and uploading the unbelievable 30-hour virtual Amartithi program) have been throwing themselves into helping where they can. So far, although Government healthcare is free, the facilities are overwhelmed. Many are managing on their own, or the patients who can bear the charges pay directly for medical help. Many families have been affected by loss of work or the sudden loss of their wage earner and need help with the basic necessities of life – food, sanitizer, and some help finding available government and charitable resources. 

Meher Oxygen Service is the second team we have been able to support. Headed up by a dynamic team of Mumbai-based Baba lover professionals, they have already received 50 oxygen cylinders and have organized volunteers who stand ready to deliver them to people’s homes as needed.

A third team is headed up by Meher Roshani Foundation, a charitable organization created by a powerhouse Baba lover. This foundation has been giving substantial aid to an economically-challenged community in Mumbai for the past year. This team is ramping up their Coronavirus-specific help thanks to our support! The latest addition to their services is a round-the-clock live Coronavirus Hotline that will provide up-to-date resources for those experiencing a medical emergency.

All three teams are headed by personally-known Baba lovers who have shown the greatest integrity in all their dealings.

Any assistance we can offer will be a great help. This fund is not supporting any specific medical facility, organization nor charity. It is focused on helping known Baba lovers who are helping their communities.

May we all find the bliss that is only possible through surrendering to His Will. Avatar Meher Baba ki Jai! x 7!  

With warm love and prayers,
Angela
