2 January 1960
On Saturday, 2 January 1960, the rising sun beheld a glorious sight. The newly-built Avatar Meher Baba Arangaon Center was decorated with buntings and with flowers, which gave off a sweet fragrance. Every house in the village left nothing undone to beautify itself, awaiting the Avatar’s arrival. Early that morning Adi brought a few visitors to Meherazad: Anil Sarkar, with his family, and Chari (both from Calcutta) and Yogi Shuddhanand Bharati. Baba arrived at Meherabad at 8:30 A.M., and after remaining there a while, he was driven to Arangaon. The tender rays of the sun welcomed the Lord of Creation, as the interspersing clouds tried to shelter him.
