Intriguing idea: Take Amtrak across the US! Coming to MB and leaving, we could have a Train-a-van (as opposed to caravan)! Details still very dreamy right now, but might be great fun! There’s an Amtrak station about an hour from Myrtle Beach – seems like it would be possible to get some shared transport to and from the train!

Silence Day Special Announcement

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

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

1. 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.  NOTE if you have gotten personalized quotes before, I am not using the entire mailing list this time (the entire list is too long; we run into problems). We are only sending to those actually listed in the Directory!
Sign up for the directory by July 5 to receive a quote especially “chosen” for you! https://babazoom.net/community-directory/

2. Quote Sharing Meeting with Jeff Wolverton

Friday July 9, 3pm EDT (noon PDT, 12.30am+1 India, 8pm London, 9am Hawaii)
You will have gotten your own quote via email! Please bring it to share with all of us (or bring one of your own choosing), or just come to listen. For those already keeping silence, you can also type your quote into chat and the host will read it out loud for you! Hosted by Jeff Wolverton and Cassandra Bramucci. This meeting will be recorded and re-played as part of our Silence Day Sahavas the next day. For login info, please see babazoom.net and click on “events.”

3. Meheram7’s Silence Day Program

Baba lovers from all over the world were invited to participate in Meheram7’s Beloved Avatar Meher Baba’s Silence Day Virtual Program by submitting never-before published offerings in the form of Bhajan, Song, Qawwali, Ghazal, Dance, Presentation, Poetry, or Instrumental. A portion of this program will be played as one of our offerings for the Baba Zoom Silence Day Sahavas! Almost 100 submissions have been received… it will be a feast!

4. Silence Day Sahavas

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

Below times are in EDT and approximated:

7:30 AMMeditation on the Seven Realities, led by Roshani Shenazz
9:00 AMArti (recited silently to a prerecorded video)
9.15Baba Bolero (photos of Baba)
9:30Shireen Mai – a Zoom play

We are so excited to share this annual treat with you all!

Jai Meher Baba!

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
