A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
Jayrambati, 25 February, 1913
We reached Jayrambati and sat down for an evening meal. One of us cried, "Did you notice, Mother, how inconsiderate these people (the Mother's brothers) are? You were coming, but they sent no one to the riverside to meet you!"
Referring to this, Mother said to her eldest brother, "Why did you not send someone to the riverside to meet us?....You sent nobody, neither did you go yourself!"
"I did not send anybody for fear of KAli," uncle Prasanna explained. "In case he says, 'There he goes, all set to influence sister!' Do you think I do not realize what you are! I know everything but dare not do anything. God has given me that power this time. Bless me that throughout my future lives I may find you as in this life. I want nothing more."
Mother said, "What! Catch me coming into your family again! This is quite enough. RAma once prayed that he should never be born again in Kaushalya's womb! To be born in your family again!! Father was devoted to RAma and always helped others, mother had such a kind heart; that was why I was born here!"
