Happy Birthday Meher Baba!
The nice people at Meher Baba Film Archive International in England are letting us preview the restored film footage of Beloved Baba's Entombment. "The Entombment Film" (aka "The Great Darshan") of Meher Baba's laying to rest between January 31st and February 7th 1969. MBF (or MEFA) was started by Delia de Leon and Pete Townshend at Meher Baba Oceanic in London. It is the most complete archive of film of Meher Baba in the world. Their website is www.meherbabafilm.com where you can learn lots more about the preservation and restoration of the original film of Baba. The present curator of the archive, Richard O'Casey, was uniquely given personal permission by Mehera and Mani to show The Entombment Film to people who have a sympathy with or understanding of Meher Baba. Richard told us, "All the 16mm Kodachrome footage taken at the Entombment has been very sucessfully restored. This ten minute film is a shortened version of the material to capture the poi nuance and magnificence of this great event 42 years ago, and also to showcase the new restoration.

Creation: The Abbreviated Version
A Film by Rich Mauro
Inspired by Meher Baba's book, God Speaks, this humorous short depicts the Universe's origination from Primordial Nothingness and one drop soul’s evolution – mineral, worm...animal to human being - then its spiritual advancement to Universal Nothingness, finally reaching the state of God-Realization.
The film shows that everyone, even Boston Red Sox or New York Yankees fans can achieve this sublime state.

"Tavern Talk", as this electronic publication has been entitled, serves as a kind of informal worldwide "family letter" carrying announcements, news and stories from the mandali, reports on special events such as Amartithi and Birthday programmes, moments and episodes and fragrances from the life of Meherabad and Meherazad, and other miscellaneous accounts.
The phrase "Tavern Talk" is an illusion to the divine "Tavern of Love" celebrated in the ghazals of Hafiz and other Sufi poets. To subscribe, send an email to <Listserv@ambppct.com> , and in the body of the communication type: subscribe tavern-talk.
Nectar for the Children
In 1968 Baba told Bhau to write a children's book including stories He had given him. And then he forgot. In 2002, Bhau was reminded of Baba's wish and has therefore written Nectar for the Children, including stories such as The Mischievous Chicken, The Two Kings, The Seven Fishes and more, totaling 18 stories in all. Nad Wolinska has enlived each story with beautifully painted color illustrations. Following each story is an explanation of it's moral and spiritual meaning.
