Deathless Day

Today is Amartithi or Deathless Day, the anniversary of the death in 1969 of Meher Baba, the self-proclaimed Avatar of this Age. I remember hearing about his death at the time. His followers observe this day by keeping a 15-minute silence beginning at noon in memory of his death at 12:15 p.m. and by flying his flag:

Video of the celebrations can be viewed here, with live coverage available during actual events.

Meher Baba said:
"The colors in the flag signify man's rise from the grossest of impressions of lust and anger – symbolized by red – to the culmination in the highest state of spirituality and oneness with God – symbolized by sky blue."
"Red should be at the bottom of the flag and sky blue at the top. Arrangement of the other five colors is your decision."
