A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"

Udbodhan, 11 February, 1913
One of the monks at the Math had sent a young boy to Mother for initiation. Mother listened to all the details concerning him and then said, "You have your own hereditary Vaishnava gurus, take your initiation from them." Whatever may be the reason, Mother did not inititae him...
On her return from Varanasi, Mother stayed for a very short while in Calcutta and then left for Jayrambati. She arrived at the Koalpara Math on 25th February. She was given the room adjoining the shrine. I took out a tiny banyan seed and said to her, "Look, Mother, it is even smaller than the seeds of the red herb. From this will spring a giant tree! How strange!"
"Indeed it will," Mother replied. "see what a tiny seed is the name of God. From it in time come deep trances, devotion, love and such spiritual consummation."
