Meher Mount

Meher Mount is a 172-acre universal spiritual center dedicated to Avatar Meher Baba. Visitors come to Meher Mount in Ojai, California, for pilgrimage, for celebrating Divine Love and Oneness, for loving God through nature, and for service.

Meher Mount sits at the 2,500-foot level atop Sulphur Mountain. It overlooks the beautiful Ojai Valley on the north, the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands to the southwest, and Topa Topa Mountain in the Los Padres National Forest on the northeast. Meher Baba sanctified the property when He visited Meher Mount on August 2, 1956.

When Meher Baba and His party arrived on the mountain, He gestured and said, “I love Meher Mount very much and feel happy here.”

A Place of Pilgrimage

Followers of Meher Baba come from all over the world in honor of Him, to walk in the footsteps of the Avatar of the Age, and to feel His presence. Other visitors – who may know nothing of Meher Baba – also come on pilgrimage, sometimes for unknown reasons or because they have heard that Meher Mount is a sacred place.

Divine Love and Oneness in Avatar Meher Baba

For those who visit, there is often a connection to something larger than themselves. There is a special, sometimes indescribable feeling of joy, peace or contentment. There is a sense of feeling and celebrating Divine Love.

Loving God through Nature

During His visit, Meher Baba gestured toward the outdoors and said, “Now, go out and see the view and try to love Baba through nature. This is all due to my love. This whole creation, this nature, all the beauty you see, all came out of me.”

Service to Meher Mount

From Meher Mount’s earliest days, there have been opportunities for service by helping to support and maintain the property honor of Meher Baba. Agnes Baron, the former owner, caretaker and Meher Mount’s self-described “watchdog” struggled to keep the property for Meher Baba. She also encouraged visitors to engage in selfless service including service to Meher Mount.

Each generation continues with that responsibility to hold Meher Mount for the Avatar and to preserve Meher Mount for future generations. Meher Baba said, “This land is very old, I have been here before.” He also added, “I will come here again.”
