Let the total number of guests be x.

Number of bowls of dhal = $$\frac{x}{2}$$

Number of bowls of rice = $$\frac{x}{3}$$

Number of bowls of meat = $$\frac{x}{4}$$

Therefore, $$\frac{x}{2} + \frac{x}{3} + \frac{x}{4} = 65$$ $$\Rightarrow \frac{6x + 4x + 3x}{12} = 65$$ $$\Rightarrow \frac{13x}{12} = 65$$ $$\Rightarrow 13x = 65 * 12$$ $$\Rightarrow 13x = 65 * 12$$ $$\Rightarrow 13x = 780$$ $$\Rightarrow x = 780/13 = 60$$

Therefore, the total number of guests present at the party was 60.
