Enough lovers to divide into twelve GROUPS? No wonder he wante to go into seclusion for 4 1/2 months; when the hell did he have time to MEDITATE?

Beloved Baba was to enter into seclusion for four and one half
months. He issued a circular, asking His lovers not to come to meet
Him and not to correspond with Him. The Hamirpur lovers gathered
together and considered what they should do during the four and one
half month period. They discussed it and decided that they should
meditate or repeat God's name for four and one-half months,
continuously, without a break.

They formed twelve groups, and each group had to meditate or repeat
God's name for two hours per day, and, in this way, twenty-four hours
were divided into twelve groups. This chain was to last for four and
one-half months. They also wrote a letter to Baba, saying that they
were doing this because Baba would be in seclusion.
