This is the Kamali Coat which Meher Baba wore during the early part of his ministry.

Meher Baba stated that the coat should never leave India. It is currently on display at the Archives at Upper Meherabad, India.

 

 

Late 1921 

 

 Upasni's disciple Yeshwant Rao gave Meher Baba a long black woollen coat called a 'kam(a)li'Meher Baba wore this coat for many years, continually mending it with different cloth patches to cover the wear subjected to it. ( see images above of the coat )

Mid-March 1924

 

The train later left Karachi for Hyderabad ( Sind ), then changed trains for Jaipur and onto Lucknow. Here, Baba went to the bazaar looking for sandals, but was disappointed with what was being offered. Baba was still wearing the woollen Kamli coat that Yeshwant Rao had given him and the sandals that Kanhoba Rao made back in India prior to travelling.

Masaji did all the cooking for the group including the teas.
