PRESIDENT’S ADDRESS AT THE LAUNCH OF OUR CENTRE’S WEBSITE
Today is 25th February 2013 - our Beloved Lord Avatar Meher Baba’s 119th Birth Anniversary. Today is also the completion of 51 years of our Centre’s existence in the city of Mumbai. As we enter the 52nd year, we are venturing into yet another dimension of reaching out to the masses through the use of the web in our endeavour to disseminate Beloved Baba’s message of Love, Truth and Spiritual Unity. This is attempted today with the launch of our Centre’s website: www.avatarmeherbaba.in at Baba’s Birth-time 5:00 in the morning.
Baba says, “. . . Avataric periods are like the springtide of creation. They bring a new release of power, a new awakening of consciousness, a new experience of life - not merely for a few, but for all. Qualities of energy and awareness, which had been used and enjoyed by only a few advanced souls, are made available for all humanity. Life as a whole is stepped up to a higher level of consciousness, is geared to a new rate of energy . . .” In this Advent, Avatar Meher Baba has worked ceaselessly, tirelessly and painstakingly towards infusing these qualities to help mankind break asunder its self-created barriers, boundaries and bindings, and to awaken humanity to the realization that we are all one. This may perhaps be the harbinger of what Baba referred to as the coming civilization - “The New Humanity.”
The revolutionary use of the world wide web and the internet has brought our world closer and transformed it into a ‘global village’ where every bit of information on any subject is made available at the click of a mouse, and total transparency is established such that any happening in any corner of the world can at once be made available to the world at large in real time. I believe, this technological upsurge experienced by our age, as never before in the history of mankind, is the direct result of Beloved Baba’s incessant universal spiritual work.
Our website, besides giving information on Beloved Baba’s life and work, will have specific bearing and focus on the spectrum of Baba activities at our Centre, as also in and around the suburbs of Mumbai. You are therefore encouraged to visit our site regularly to keep yourself abreast of Baba activities in your area. Presently, we are in the process of updating the contents and hope to complete it soon.
I would like to thank all those who have contributed to this mission in terms of their time, money, ideas and energy; It is hoped that our endeavour pleases Baba and helps Him in His universal spiritual work.
Avatar Meher Baba Ki Jai!
