Subject:  Bhau-Less Chat Sunday, 30th January, Amartithi Eve

Date:  Friday, 27th January 2011

Information on Amartithi webcasts on their timings, as well as local times for the 15 minutes of silence at noon on 31st January are at the bottom of this announcement.


Beloved Avatar Meher Baba Ki Jai!

Bhau continues to recuperate and his medical team continues to insist that he take absolute rest and not deal with emails or phone calls, especially during the tamasher of Amartithi.  Therefore, Bhau will be unable to participate in Sunday's chat.

Your loving cards and photographs are being delivered to his team and are being read and shown to him as he continues to recuperate and time permits.

Last week, although Bhau did not appear, several dear ones from all over the world logged onto the chatroom during the usual Sunday morning times, resulting in various loving exchanges and sweet remembrances of Bhau and Baba.

Some lovely excerpts from last week's Bhau-less Chat:

Linj - Good morning. I woke thinking of dear Bhau, and all the love he shares with the world, and all the love everyone is pouring out to him.  It reminded me that Love alone is real.

Isabelle Queen of England - Dear Bhau and Baba family.  I hope Bhau is better each amd every day, making progress in his recovery. We send our love from England .  God, our dog, sends lots of licks for Bhau xx

Maharajah of Kashmir - The musings of a chatter:  "O Compassionate Meher Baba, you have made Bhau to be Yours and left him to help us come closer and closer to You in every way.  O dearest Bhauji, here on this chat, you bring your chatters closer to the Lord's Heart, where names, faces, thoughts, concerns are forgotten in the remembrance of the Beloved Avatar Meher Baba, Beloved, God in Human Form.  How can it be said? 'The mind knows the things that change, while the heart embraces the Ancient One."  In the Divine chat, Silence speaks to Silence - and in your weekly chats, you are preparing us for the Eternal Chat between Beloved Meher Baba and Beloved Meher Baba!  Jai Ho Jai Ho Jai Ho Beloved Avatar Meher Baba Ki Jai!

Mother Namo - Dear Bhauji, your shining presence is no less active these days, and I can feel that your Baba Lion is still very powerful!  I pray that you feel as comfortable as possible with the cloth of your body, wrapped in Beloved Baba's Love and Care and in the precious loving care of your Mothers, Queens, Father and Team.  I'm sending you much HeartNet loving Jai Hos and Salutations! Beloved  Avatar Meher Baba Ki Jai! Lovingly, with Beloved Baba's Love, Mother Namo"

Michele in Scotland - Beloved Baba's Great love to you, Bhauji.  I know Baba will be there, sitting with you.  His love to your care team.  Jai Beloved Meher Baba to all on the chat.

Habib #1 - Jai Baba, dear Bhauji. We love you and hope Beloved Baba embraces you in His Infinite Love and comforts you in these difficult times.  How can we ever thank you for your service to Him, which has been a Universal Service to all, and also for us who have had this most wonderful opportunity in His Love.  So Jai Ho to you, dearest Bhauji. Jai Ho! Jai Ho! Jai Ho!  Avatar Meher Baba Ki Jai! And thank you Team for all that you do for Bhauji and all that you do to help bring Baba's Love to us.  Jai Ho! Jai Ho! Jai Ho!
