Under the aegis of the Avatar Meher Baba Bombay Centre, our Trustee-Treasurer, Jimmy F. Khan, has been organizing pilgrimages to Meherabad and Meherazad over the years.
Several hundreds – old and new – have had the opportunity of visiting the One place of pilgrimage which is slowly becoming “The Place of World Pilgrimage” as foretold by Beloved Baba.
In this month – March, two pilgrimage-trips were organized and attached are the photographs.
Jimmy owes the smooth functioning of such arrangements and programmes to several volunteers.
To quote from his letter to the Trustees, in parts:
Quote: ” The last two pilgrimages 7-9 and 11-13 were very successful with more than 100 coming over. These trips would not have been possible had it not been a few god’s good souls who made it possible and quite a load off my chest.
I st trip:
Godrej Mehta for his over all help.
Percy Siganporia for collecting the cash and making the payments.
Bhiku Sethna also for his help.
Bomi Bomanji for collecting the cash and paying at the desks.
Bomi sat in the hot non con driver’s cabin from Mumbai to Meherabad and that too sideways n no complaints.
Sharukh Mandroina for changing the bus 3 times without any complaint.
Yohan Noble for taking the tours.
Homyar and Mahafreed for taking the group snaps.
Two unsung heroes who contributed Rs. 3 k each for those who could not afford.
Zubin for giving us Mercedes for travel.
In His love, Jimmy” Unquote.
And of course there is our Trustee, Sam Patell, who could not make it for this month’s trip, but who is ever willing to offer a helping hand.
The attached photographs are by the Dad-Daughter team: Homyar and Mahafreen – Homz Prints. Homyar has been extremely helpful to our Centre in terms of Beloved Baba’s photosgraphs / photo frames and videos of various functions.
In Baba’s love,
