Spring is Here and Annual Open House is Coming!!

See, flowers do grow in Oklahoma!! We are excitedly getting ready for the up-coming commemoration of Avatar Meher Baba's 1952 auto accident here in Prague. There will be a one day gathering here at the Heartland Center on Saturday, May 23. Our whole board of directors will be here and a formal dedication of the newly purchase Morrison House next door will take place. A tour of the hospital is planned, trips out to the site of Baba's accident and tea, cookies, music and camaraderie will ensue!

The M house will not be open for pilgrims yet as it is still an empty shell of its former grandeur. It has great "bones" though and plans are underway to re-do it. Thanks to all of those who so lovingly donated funds to help the AMBHC plan for the future. Prague property doesn't change hands very often so getting this place right next door was a real Baba-find.

What I heard, Speedy Morrison, who owned the house, was a friend and business associate of Dr. Burleson and helped finance the hospital back in the fifties. His heir, son Scott, met Baba when he was here. Scott really went out of his way to pass the house along to the Center.

For those who are coming for the Baba Memorial Day Weekend, let Miriam and I help with travel and lodging plans. NEWS: A new Bed and Bath is now available in downtown Prague just a few blocks walking distance from the Center.

Around the place, there are tiny little lupine all through the grass. They are beautiful!

See them under the big old tree out front!

The garden is getting planted in the twelve beds Michael set up and we are looking forward to sharing fresh veggies with those who come and stay.

Any stories about past visits to the Center would be appreciated (let me know if I can post them here).

Baba's Love to y'all!!

Ron & Miriam, co-caretakers, AMBHC


  1. The place looks beautiful--lupine and all. We are very sorry not to make it there on our expedited ride northward. Henry sends love, as do his parents! Thank you, Ron, for adding "rivets" to our vocabulary of the Titanic! Love, A, A, H & L

  2. Jai Baba! Ron and Miriam, I'm glad to hear of the garden in the spacious adjoining yards. Maybe eventually there will be enough to donate to a local food bank? Plant-a-Row for the Hungry is a national program (PAR, through Garden Writers Association). Just ideas.

    My heart was with you all last May 24th; part of my heart will always be there. Much love in Him,
