Swami Arupananda:

Because I was eager to participate in the Master's birthday celebrations at the Belur Math, it had been arranged that that I should leave the day before ShivarAtri. I had already told mother about this. When I went to pay my respects to her after the midday meal, prior to my departure, she said to me, "Shashi will go with you." Shashi being a woman I became thoughtful.

Thereupon Mother said, "Why, she is our own Shashi. She lived with me at Dakshineswar." Then she said to Shashi, "Let him stay in our own room at Kamarpukur. Ask Ramlal's aunt." At the time there was no one else at the Master's house.

"Spend a couple of days at Karmarpukur on your way to Belur Math," Mother said to me. "One should see the Master's birthplace." I had no intention of going there; I had gone only to see Mother.

In my eagerness to visit Mother I had rushed out of my house without remembering to bring any extra clothes or an umbrella with me. When I recollected this after I had come a short way, I did not go back, for fear of some hindrance.
