Meher Mount is a 170 acre, semi-wilderness area near Ojai, California. At 2,600 feet above the Pacific Ocean it has a magnificent 360 degree view, including the nearby peak of the Topa Topa mountain range, the Channel Islands, Los Padres National Forest, and the Ojai Valley. After Meher Baba asked His lovers in the West to find a spot for a center two hours from a major city, Jean Adriel along with Agnes Baron and several other followers discovered the property and purchased it in 1946.
Meher Mount is now a non-profit corporation dedicated to Avatar Meher Baba and open to everyone as a universal spiritual center. It is a place of beauty and refuge. And it is a place for work, meditation, and losing oneself in service. Most of all, it's a place where the Avatar of the Age walked, and it carries a special feeling and significance because of His presence.

During His visit in 1956, Meher Baba gestured toward the outdoors and said to all those with Him: "Now, go out and see the view and try to love Baba through nature. This is all due to My love. This whole creation, this nature, all the beauty you see, all came out of Me."
