A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother" 

(available at all Vedanta Centres)


Page 28

When a householder disciple complained to Holy Mother about her seemingly inordinate attachment to her niece, she made the significant remark, "Everyone says that I am terribly attached to Radhu, but without this attachment I could not have kept my body alive after the Master's death.

"Thus it is the Master himself who has made me cling to Radhu - just to preserve ny body. When my mind becomes indifferent to her I shall leave this world."

In a unique manner Holy Mother blended in her personality the characteristics of a human being, a divinity, a spiritual perceptor, and a mother. Outwardly she appeared for the most part as a Hindu housewife. At the death of a relative she wept.

The next day she said, explaining the reason for her grief, "I live in the world. I must taste the fruit of the tree of the world." Sri Ramakrishna once said that when God becomes a man, he acts exactly like a human being; he feels hunger and thirst, and suffers from disease, grief and fear.

How this ordinary humanity concealed Holy Mother's divinity has been well expressed by Swami Premananda, one of the Master's prominent disciples.
