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

Jayrambati, 12 June, 1913:
Mother: "My mother had a vision on another occasion. They were celebrating KAli pujA in our village; but Naba Mukherji did not collect our quota of rice, out of spite. My mother had husked it and set it ready. But he would not collect it from our house. My mother cried all night, 'I made this rice for KAli, and they would not take it! Who will have it now? No one can eat of rice prepared for KAli.'
"At night she saw the goddess JagaddhaAtri, red in colour sitting by the doorway, her feet crossed...She woke my mother by patting her body and said, 'Why do you weep? I shall take KAli's rice. What have you to fear?'
"My mother said, 'Who are you?' JagaddhaAtri answered, 'I am the mother of the world, I shall accept your pujA in the form of JagaddhAtri.'
"Next day my mother said to me, 'Tell me, Sarada, which goddess is red in colour and sits with feet crossed? I shall worship JagaddhAtri.' It became a sort of craze with her. She must worship JagaddhAtri. She sent for thirteen maunds (half a ton) of paddy. It rained all the time, there was not a single day of respite. My mother cried, 'How can I worship you, Mother? I cannot even dry the paddy.'
"In the end, JagaddhAtri gave her sunshine. It rained everywhere; but where she spread out the paddy to dry, the sun shone. They burnt the wood and dried the image before it and painted it.....So the pujA was celebrated, the whole countryside was invited. The rice from that paddy paid for everything."
