A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
Udbodhan (Prayer Room): It was morning and we were talking.
"After the Master left me," Mother said, "I was living at Karmarpukur and would sit alone and wonder what was the use of it all, I had no son or anyone. The Master appeared to me one day and said, 'Why do you worry? You want one son! I have given you so many jewels of sons, such as these! A time will come when many people will call you mother'.
"On my way to Vrindaban I saw the Master at the window of my compartment and he said to me, 'About that amulet you have with you, see that you do not lose it.'
"I had his own amulet on my arm. I used to worship it. Later I gave it to the Belur Math. They worship it there now."
"It got lost during the Master's birthday celebrations this year," I said. "They had thrown it into the river along with the flowers and bel leaves. Ram Babu's son Rishi discovered it while playing there during ebb tide and he picked it up and brought it in."
"It is his own amulet," Mother remarked. "They should take great care of it."
