(available at all Vedanta Centres)

About this time, Holy Mother had a significant vision which convinced her beyond a shadow of a doubt that the purpose of Sri Ramakrishna's advent was to show humanity the way to liberation and that she had a significant part to play in this divine dispensation.

Under the loving care of the Master's disciples she dwelt for a time in rented houses. At last, through the untiring efforts of Swami Saradananda, a permanent house was built for her in Calcutta, which she occupied in 1909 and where for the most part she lived until she breathed her last.

Soon after his return from America, Swami Vivekananda had established the Belur Math on the bank of the GangA near Calcutta. It had become the permanent headquarters of the Ramakrishna Order. Holy Mother visited the Math and said with great joy, "After such a length of time the children have at last found a shelter. Now I feel that the Master has bestowed a visible blessing upon them."

Seven years earlier in 1890, Holy Mother had visited Bodh Gaya, where in the local monastery she saw the monks living in comfort. At that time the young monastic disciples of Sri Ramakrishna were wandering about, living on alms. The contrast was a vivid one. A fervent prayer went forth from Holy Mother's heart. She felt the need of an organization to spread Sri Ramakrishna's message.
