Meher Today – 3rd November
3 November 1936
Reaching Istanbul, Baba and the mandali boarded the Orient Express on the 31st at 9:45 P.M. for Paris, where they arrived on Tuesday, 3 November 1936. After a brief rest, they left Paris and arrived in London the following day, whereupon Baba and the mandali resided once again at Hygeia House.
3 November 1953
Baba arrived in Chuharpur by car on Tuesday, 3 November 1953, at about 2:30 P.M. with some of the mandali — others had gone in advance by bus. He was vociferously hailed by the gathering of almost 2,000 that had assembled.
3 November 1962
Baba was on the stage to meet his lovers in the afternoon of Saturday, 3 November 1962, long before the scheduled time of 1:30 P.M., and he began greeting lovers from Nagpur, Jabalpur, Bhopal, Hamirpur and a few other places. This continued until 3:00 P.M. Several people were still waiting. Stopping the line, Baba asked those who had not yet met him to come to the meeting tent at 7:30 A.M. the next morning, the last day of the gathering.
3 November 1962
The Chirala villagers arrived in Guruprasad at 7:30 A.M., on Saturday, 3 November 1962. Baba embraced each one on the verandah. He also allowed them to sing bhajans and perform his arti. Their singing may have been off-key, but their faith was full of love. To the children among them, Baba gave extra prasad. Several of the Westerners arrived an hour later and, watching the scene, they were impressed by these poor villagers’ deep expression of love. After each embraced Baba again, the villagers departed for their homes.
