Part 1 of 2 Behram and Jal Irani at Pumpkin House, Pune, India.
Behram tells personal stories of his brother, Baba and gives a tour of Pumpkin House.
Jal starts speaking around 31:20 into this recording
(Date unknown, probably early to mid 70's)
From Win Coats collection but it sounds like it was part of an Irwin and Ed Luck interview recording, hence some odd breaks (probably as they moved cameras or changed film reels).
Late 1970's - Adi K Irani gives a talk at the Meher Center.
Adi K Irani was one of the earliest followers of Meher Baba and did most of the interpreting of Baba on their very first trip to Myrtle Beach. Adi made several trips to America in the 1970's. Recorded in Myrtle Beach. Introduced by an older woman who gave a brief recount of Adi and Baba's first trip to Myrtle Beach. Adi begins by reciting and translating a prayer to Meher Baba and then talks on many subjects including Baba's practical ways. Many anecdotes and a question and answer session at the end.

(From Keith and Brad Gunn)
Different kinds of advice, the truth, and seeking Masters.
1980 Mandali Hall
Meher Lahar audio series #3 of 9
Eruch Jessawala in Mandali Hall answering questions about advisors, mundane and spiritual; as well as self-effacement and the Truth. The goal is more than just some experiences here and there. Baba said that reality must be continuously experienced.
Filis's occult experiences prior to meeting Baba
1982 Portland Oregon Sahavas, Part 2
The story continues with Norina Matchabelli, part of the jet set of Europe. "Professor so and so must meet Baba."
Baba gives the professor love by flinging His alphabet board into the corner of
the room, and tears roll down the professor's cheeks.
At East-West gathering the women heard Indian musicians sing a song that is
traditionally sung when a bride leaves the home of her family to live with her
husband. The women present all started crying, because they realized that they
would not see Baba again. This was the last glimpse of Baba for every westerner
except for the people who went to the tree at the end of the East West
[From the Ursula Reinhart collection]
Starts with Filis' story of coming to Baba. She sees Baba at a Ramakrishna
event, and Ramakrishna appears to her and tells her that Baba is her master.
Makes the point that Baba arrived in the US in 1952 with 12 disciples, six women
and six men. (From the 1982 Portland gathering, recorded by Ursula Reinhardt)
