Scheme of Universal Ashram

 

This unique institution, to be established in the near future by Shri Meher Baba, will consist of the following six departments:

 

THE SPIRITUAL ACADEMY

 

This academy will prepare men and women who will authoritatively ask the world to be selfless and God-loving. They will use intellectual understanding as their medium for secular, social and international harmony.

 

THE HOUSE OF ADVANCED SOULS

 

This section will prepare real mystics of the practical type. These mystics will inspire others to live a life in which there will be complete detachment side by side with intense creative action. They will also help others to feel divinity in every phase of life.

 

THE ABODE OF THE SAINTS

 

This section will consist of saints who will bestow true knowledge on souls who are ignorant. They will teach through the medium of experience that the only real existence is God, and that all else is illusion.

 

THE MAD (MAST) INSTITUTE

 

This department will be devoted to the care of such God-intoxicated souls as have lost their balance while crossing the inner planes. These souls will be given further spiritual push or brought back to normality according to the requirements of the Universal Plan behind the working of the Universal Ashram.

 

THE SOLITARY QUARTERS FOR MEDITATION

 

Provision will be made for those who will most benefit through meditation with suitable quarters and such instructions as are necessary in particular cases.

 

THE RESTING PLACE FOR THE AFFLICTED

 

This section will devote attention to the removal of suffering and ailment in all its forms. It is meant to be the training ground for a group of selfless workers who will learn how to render real and effective service. The experience gathered through this department will be capable of universal application.

 

All these six departments will be under the direct supervision of Shri Meher Baba.
