SAMADHI DARSHAN DURING AMARTITHI
Jai Baba,
According to the present arrangement for Darshan at the Tomb Shrine
(Samadhi) of Avatar Meher Baba at Amartithi, pilgrims are allowed to enter the
Samadhi, quickly bow down, and exit the Samadhi. In this arrangement not more
than 600 pilgrims can take Darshan in one hour and a maximum of 15,000 pilgrims
can take Darshan in one day. As many more pilgrims wish to take Darshan during
the Amartithi days, it is obvious that thousands of pilgrims do not get a chance to
fulfill their wish to have Beloved Baba’s Darshan on this sacred occasion.
Because of this, the Trustees of Avatar Meher Baba P.P.C. Trust have
decided that during Amartithi, from 6 am on 30th January until 12 noon on 1st
February 2018, a wooden railing will be placed in front of the sacred marble.
Instead of bowing down, pilgrims may enter the Samadhi and take Darshan by
reaching over the railing and touching the marble. On an experimental basis, this
arrangement was tried during the Silence Day gathering and it was found that more
than double the number of pilgrims could have the opportunity of Darshan during
that time.
Therefore, at Amartithi from 6 am on 30th January until 12 noon on 1st
February, 2018, Darshan inside the Samadhi will be as per the above system.
We are sure all Pilgrims will cooperate.
PLEASE NOTE: Darshan tokens will be issued in the usual way,
HOWEVER, because of this new system, the token numbers will change much
faster this year. Pilgrims should be extra alert to avoid losing their turn.
Please communicate this important change to members of your centres during your
meetings.
In His Love,
Shridhar Kelkar
Chairman
Avatar Meher Baba Trust
