A Spiritual Center for the Awakening of the Heart
Meherana (meaning “Meher Come”) is a spiritual retreat center located on 289 acres in Mariposa County, California, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, about an hour’s drive from Yosemite National Park. The property features rolling hills, ephemeral creeks fed by hillside runoff and melting mountain snow, and woodlands of oak and pine.
Meherana is a universal center for spiritual renewal dedicated to Avatar Meher Baba and His principles of active love and service to both the Meher Baba community and all humanity. It is intended for the enhancement and strengthening of spiritual life, without supplanting professed religious convictions or beliefs. The center is to be made available for Sahavas, meetings, and retreats, both group and individual; and for the development and support of service projects. It is to be organized and implemented according to democratic principles.
