On July 10, 1925, Meher Baba began observing silence, and did so for the remaining 44 years of his life. His many discourses and messages were initially dictated by the use of an alphabet board, but eventually he communicated through a set of unique hand gestures that the mandali translated for him, but which many reported as understandable even if they had never seen him before. It was not uncommon for people to report being touched by him in some very profound and personal way while in his presence or even from a distance.
