A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
To Mother: "Does God make distinctions in the matter of grace?"
"Certainly, it is all according to one's karma. Once the bonds of karma are sundered, one finds God. That is the last time one is born.".....
"Mother," I argued, "admitted that spiritual exercise, exhaustion of past karma, and proper time - all these are needed if one would have the light of knowledge. But if God is our own, why should He not show Himself out of His grace?"
"Exactly so." Mother replied. "Not that everyone has this penetrating outlook like you; others take up religion as a matter of form. How many really want God?"
"I told you the other day," I added, "that one does not even know one's mother unless one gets love and affection."
"Quite so," Mother said. "How can love grow unless one sees Him? Here we have met - I am your mother and you are my son."
