A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
A few months later (in 1909) we were doing relief work among the flood-stricken people of Ghatal. I took a three days' leave and went to see Mother at Jayrambati during the JagaddhAtri pujA....As soon as Ashu Maharaj saw us, he said, "I am glad you have come, because Mother was feeling sad that none of the disciples were here."
We went in and bowed at Mother's feet.
"Where have you been," she asked.
"Sit down and have some prasAdha," she said. When we sat down for the meal, she had us served with large helpings of fish.....
We left the next morning.
When the relief work was over, I left for Jayrambati again on the 16th of December, 1909....I arrived a little before dusk. When Mother observed my appearance, she asked, "I suppose you haven't eaten anything all day?" "No", I said.
"But why not? There are shops at Ramjivanpur."
