What is the mission of Beloved Archives?
The sole mission of Beloved Archives is to carefully restore and preserve all material associated with the life, work and teachings of Avatar Meher Baba and, more importantly, to make all this material accessible to seekers worldwide. Beloved Archives is a 501(c)3 non-profit, tax-exempt foundation registered in the United States. Although many of the artifacts associated with Meher Baba's life and work, were originally given to the Nalavala family by Meher Baba and his close disciples for their personal collection, the items are now housed in Beloved Archives in Hamilton, New Jersey.
The ascent to the hill at Meherabad is not too cumbersome. Large mounds of small hillocks seem to spread out in waves, and underfoot the trail is a slew of sharp-edged rocks. For miles around there is ethereal silence ...
For 50 years Glow International has served as a beacon for Meher Baba's Universal Message of divine love, truth and spiritual unity. With the tangible support of our readers worldwide, we have created in the pages of Glow International a record for posterity of the Avatar's ministry on earth. We have shared his message of divine love and continue to share his message of love, hope, and unity amongst mankind. Glow International is a universal journal. It is for all seekers everywhere. It is non-dogmatic and non-sectarian. It is read by those who call themselves "Baba lovers" and by those who do not call themselves "Baba lovers" - and are simply "seekers".But all our readers are committed to personal spiritual transformation. Glow International features contemporary issues as dictated by incidents in our daily lives oftentimes governed by the words of Meher Baba in his Discourses - words that transform consciousness, words that awaken. Meher Baba attaches a powerful spiritual energy to his words. And it is these words that we feature in the pages of Glow International. Glow International is published each quarter from contributions made to Beloved Archives.

JUNE 22, 2017, Hamilton, New Jersey: On June 22, 2017, Beloved Archives launched a new Meher Baba Web portal (belovedarchives.org), with a strong focus on the life, work and teachings of Avatar Meher Baba. Created by the Bangalore-based Webtrax Team, Prajwal Dharan, Niti Gupta and Harsh Mehta, the portal opens with a rotating series of photographs of Meher Baba and highlights the core mission of Beloved Archives.
Featuring 100 photographs from the Image Collection of Beloved Archives, Meher Baba's Life and Work as detailed in Naosherwan Anzar’s book THE BELOVED, is the central theme of the portal.
In a wide-ranging interview with Margaret Magnus, Anzar shares his vision for Beloved Archives. "The sole mission of Beloved Archives," underscores Anzar, " is to carefully restore and preserve all material associated with the life, work and teachings of Avatar Meher Baba and, more importantly, to make all this material accessible to seekers worldwide."
With an emphasis on preservation, Anzar mentions, "With limited funds, Beloved Archives has taken the necessary first step in preservation by scanning most of the documents and photographs. Beloved Archives now needs to rehouse over a 100,000 documents. We will continue with this massive restoration and preservation project as funds become available through tax-deductible donations."
For the first time a selection of 30 rare artifacts from Beloved Archives have been posted on the portal. Each month, Beloved Archives will post on the portal, letters, cables, diaries, photographs and a lot more. Please check (belovedarchives.org) each month for material from the archives as well as News from Baba centers and from Baba lovers from all over the world. The Beloved Archives Portal will also post select issues from 50 years of GLOW INTERNATIONAL for those who wish to check out our older issues.
EASY TO SUBSCRIBE AND PURCHASE BOOKS. Seekers can now go to the BOOK ROOM, subscribe to GLOW INTERNATIONAL and purchase books, CDs and DVDs through PayPal or other credit cards or pay by check. A brand new innovative feature has been added to each book image: place your cursor over each book and read the blurb. GLOW INTERNATIONAL publishes each quarter new material on Meher Baba's universal ministry. The journal devoted to Meher Baba, is now in its 51st year of continuous publication.
VOLUNTEERS. Beloved Archives in Hamilton, New Jersey, is open to seekers everywhere. Our goal is to create a warm and welcoming space where we can develop an atmosphere to nurture real spiritual values. At this time we need volunteers to help us re-house documents and input the scanned material in a powerful database, MeherMaster. This is a great opportunity to be of service to the Beloved. Please write to us if you wish to volunteer for a short or long period.
INNER CONNECTION TO GOD. Beloved Archives, an hour away from New York City, is located on a wooded plot of land, accessible by land and rail. While we invite seekers to work with us on archival projects, we also conduct regular meetings, meditation sessions and intensives on aspects of Meher Baba's universal ministry. Our programs are designed to awaken a deep and abiding connection to God. Functioning under Meher Baba's mandate, Beloved Archives is designed for seekers to commune with the Divine in a secular, dogma-free setting. "Do not search for God outside of you," once Meher Baba said, "God can only be found within you, for His only abode is the heart."

Dear Glow International Reader,
Thank you for your support and your subscriptions. Without Beloved Meher Baba's grace and your tangible support, we could not have done it.
Glow International is a not-for-profit publication underwritten by readers like you.
Glow International is still the most widely read spiritual journal devoted to Meher Baba. The journal's design, artwork and layout has been praised by professionals. The content of the magazine has transformed the lives of many. Gratifying? Yes. But it's your support that provides the most gratifying affirmation of all.
To this day, Glow International remains the only magazine that was launched in 1966 under Meher Baba's direct guidance and has maintained its high standard worthy of the Beloved. Without your active participation we could not uphold the caliber of excellence that you have come to expect from us.
