Meher Today – 10th November
10 November 1926
Baba asked the men this spiritual riddle: “How can 5 – 7 = 12?”
He explained, “The human body, which is composed of the five principal elements of nature — air, fire, earth, water, and sky — passes through the seven planes. This is the meaning of 5 – 7. When this is done, one becomes a Sadguru, who is always divided into twelve parts, which comprise his circle. Thus 5 – 7 = 12.”

Baba went on a prolonged liquid fast of coffee and milk, continuing it for almost five and a half months. The anniversary of the dhuni was celebrated that evening with the mandali and boys gathering around the dhuni as it was lit. Bhajans were performed by Bhausaheb in front of the Table, under which Baba was seated. After the ceremony was concluded, there was a steady rain for three days after a long gap without rain — true to Baba’s prediction just a few days before.
