Dear Meher Center Family,
Greetings in Meher Baba’s love to you and your family.
It is with a sense of sadness that we are writing to inform the Meher Baba community that Phyllis Ott, long time resident of Meher Center, passed away on September 5, 2022, at the age of 96. With Meher Baba’s permission, Phyllis and her husband Lyn, together with their children, moved onto Meher Center property in 1966.
Phyllis had the great fortune of meeting Meher Baba in 1964 and again in 1965 in India. She was a gifted and accomplished artist who lovingly painted Baba’s form throughout her life. Most notably, she and her husband Lyn created the glorious murals that adorn the original Pilgrim Center at lower Meherabad, India.
Over the decades, Phyllis hosted at her home countless pilgrims who have visited Meher Center on retreat. She was a well known and beloved figure in the Meher Baba community, and will be missed by so many. Now, she rests in the arms of her Beloved.
Meher Center will be holding the 2022 Young Adult Sahavas at the retreat from November 10-13. This Sahavas is open to young people between the ages of 18 and 43. Please call the Gateway if you are planning on attending, whether or not you plan on staying on the Center during the sahavas. Click here for more information about this event.
Also, Ward Parks will be presenting a seminar on "Creation and its Causes” at Meher Center on Oct. 21, 22, and 23.
In Baba’s love and service,
For Meher Center board and staff
