• THE AVATAR IN INDIA

THE REAL MEANING OF RELIGION IS

TO KNOW GOD, TO SEE GOD, TO BE ONE WITH GOD

My understanding of an important aspect of Meher Baba's Advent is his work to bring all religions together: "Like pearls on a string". Every religion would have a little representation in design, yet no particular religion would dominate. This can be shown in elements of the structure itself and in paintings of the 7 major Avataric Advents of this cycle that could line the corridor. The first painting would be of Meher Baba then: Zoroaster, Ram, Krishna, Buddha, Jesus and Mohhamad. The five perfect masters of Meher Baba's advent would be the last paintings. Stepping into the inner courtyard after the long awaited moment, the pilgrims would see the Samadhi itself from all angles. Circling around to take darshan and perhaps, offer a flower. They would then receive prasad as they exit the building. The paintings on the wall upon entering would be these two shown above. Perhaps Abraham could be represented on the left, He was Avatar for the Abrahamic religions, though not in this current cycle.

Each Avataric Advent, followed by a new religion, can be represented by a painting on the outer wall.

Rama and Krishna
