Meher Today – 13th January
13 January 1923
On Saturday, 13 January, the Master described to the mandali a dream he had had the previous night:
I was traveling with the mandali by train. From the opposite direction, a long funeral procession was coming. On inquiry, I learned that this was Babajan’s funeral. At Poona, I got down from the train and went to Char Bawdi. There I saw Babajan lying down, surrounded by a large crowd, wailing and shouting that she had died. I passed my hand over Babajan’s face, and she rose!
I told her that people thought she was dead and gone, and her only reply was, “Yes, that’s right — I really am dead!”
