Here is a link to the Detailed Version



  This Listserv is dedicated to Meher Baba. It was created to provide a forum for followers of Meher Baba to share experiences, ideas, post news and events, and to discuss the life and teachings of Avatar Meher Baba. All are welcome to join. Please feel free to post questions about Meher Baba to the readership. There are three lists.

  The baba list is for announcements and the like, and any follow-up commentary on those announcements is sent to the baba-talk list.
  That way if you only want the announcements you need only subscribe to baba list. If you want the commentary and so forth, you subscribe to baba-talk list. If you want both, you subscribe to both lists.
  If you want only a single Baba quote with no other traffic whatsoever, subscribe to "quotes only" by contacting an administrator for assistance.
