Jabalpur is the approximate center of India. Situated on the banks for river Narmada, this city was one of the seven places in the world where Meher Baba opened a Mast Ashram. Meher Baba stayed in Jabalpur for nearly six months and conducted a lot of Mast work, in and around Jabalpur. Several Masts of very high order were brought to Jabalpur from Elichpur, Amravati, Ahmednagar, Seoni and many other places. Jal Kerawala was the Extra-Asstt-Commissioner of Jabalpur during Baba's 1938-39 visit, who looked after every possible need. Baba is seen in the above photo washing his hands in Narmada river near Jabalpur.
Meher Baba contacted several Masts at Mandla, a place nearly 100 kms from Jabalpur. At Mandla, Meher Baba received a gift of a large portion of Land from one of the Land Lords, for His spiritual activities. At Mandla Meher Baba constructed Meher Kuti, which was later abandoned. This Kuti, in it's design, is exact replica of the Samadhi at Meherabad. Click here to see a photograph of this Kuti.
Jabalpur is situated on the Railway Map very well and is connected to all the four Metro's of India. One can easily travel to Jabalpur by Train. A regular Air service is also expected to start for Jabalpur shortly. However it is a overnight journey from Bhopal, Delhi, and 18 hours from Bombay. From Pune and Ahmednagar, also a direct Train Gyanganga Express is available for Jabalpur.
