Sheriar Foundation is an independent, non-profit, tax-exempt foundation formed in 1989. The purpose of Sheriar Foundation is to broaden awareness and deepen the appreciation of the spiritual values exemplified in the life and writings of Meher Baba. It is dedicated to exploring dynamic ways of bringing the restorative power of divine love more fully into people’s lives.

In addition to supporting the bookstore, Sheriar Books, Sheriar Foundation has published more than twenty books by and about Meher Baba, including Discourses, Infinite Intelligence, and The Everything and The Nothing.

Sheriar Foundation has also been instrumental in making rare footage of Meher Baba available to the public. This includes Paramount and MovieTone footage of Baba shot in 1932, and Beyond Words, rare footage of Baba taken in 1967.

Sheriar Foundation’s archival program is primarily focused on the preservation of audio recordings, video, and film.

How do I purchase or redeem a gift certificate?

Gift certificates may be purchased online or at Sheriar Books in Myrtle Beach. If you purchase a gift certificate online, you have the option of having a paper certificate sent by post or an electronic certificate emailed to the gift receiver. Either way, gift certificates offer a place to write a personalized message and come with a validation number. This number is needed to redeem the gift certificate.

To redeem a gift certificate online, shop around as usual, adding items to your shopping cart. When you go to check out, there will be a field to fill in the validation number. Enter the validation number in this field. Otherwise come into our store or send in your gift certificate along with your order.

If the value of your gift certificate is higher than the item(s) you wish to purchase, you can either establish credit with us to be used for a later purchase or have the remaining value returned to you by check. If the value of your gift certificate is less than what you wish to purchase, simply pay the difference.

Purchasing a gift certificate is just like purchasing any other item we carry. Our return policy applies to the gift certificate (if not yet redeemed), as well as to any items purchased with a gift certificate.

What if I lose my gift certificate?

We keep a record of all gift certificates sold and redeemed. Just Contact Us and we'll be happy to help you redeem it, even if you lost the certificate and do not know the validation code.
