A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
Udbodhan (Prayer Room), 2 May, 1912, 7 am:
"People have grown clever these days," Mother continued, "they have his pictures! This Master MahAshaaya now, he is not an ordinary man! He has taken down whatever the Master uttered..."
"Master MahAshaya said this about the KathAmrita", I said, "that it would take ten or twelve volumes to publish everything. But will he have time to do it?"
"Yes, he is getting old," Mother said, "he might die before he finishes the book."
"Did you tell me at Jayrambati about the Master's coming among the white people or some such thing?" I asked.
"No, I only said that many devotees of him will come from anong the white people." she replied. "Do you notice, for instance, how many Christians are coming now? The Master said he would come again, after a hunderd years. For these hundred years he would remain in the hearts of those who loved him...
"I told him I could not come again. Lakshmi said she would not come again, not even if she were chopped into shreds like tobacco leaves! The Master laughed and said, 'How can you help coming? Our roots are twined together, like the kolmi plant; pull at a stem and the whole clump will come forward.'"
