In July of 1968, Meher Baba announced that he had completed his work 100% to his satisfaction. But his health was shattered, and a few months later, on 31 January 1969, he dropped his physical form to live eternally in the hearts of all who love him. In keeping with his prior instructions, his body was interred in the crypt in Meherabad Hill which had been prepared for this purpose thirty years earlier. Today, Meher Baba’s Tomb at Meherabad is a site of pilgrimage, and thousands of visitors annually travel from all over the world to pay homage to one whom they regard as the Avatar of the age.
