Faredoon Nawrosjee Driver, better known as Padri, (November 27, 1903 - March 13, 1982) was born in Pune, India and was one of Meher Baba's close mandali (devoted disciples). He lived with and served Meher Baba from 1922 until Meher Baba's death in 1969, beginning his stay with Baba in Baba's first ashram, Manzil-e-Meem. Later, after moving his ashram to Ahmednagar district, Meher Baba called Padri one of the four "pillars" of Meherabad. (Meherabad was Meher Baba's second ashram and is today the site of Baba's samadhi shrine). Padri, who was originally a garage mechanic,[1] later became a doctor of homeopathy treating local villagers near Meherabad.[2]

Meher Baba nicknamed Faredoon "Padri" because of his lanky, priestlike stature. Padri emphasized obedience to the master and had little patience for ostentatious sentimentality, famously quoted as saying, "Love is for the saints and the masts, not for the likes of us!"[3]

Padri's remains are buried at lower Meherabad.
