Sarayubala Devi:




 




3 August, 1911:




 




This morning I took a few necessary things and went to Mother for my initiation. I had found out from Gouri-Ma what I would need and had brought her along with me. When we arrived at Mother's house, we discovered her deep in prayer and worship. She opened her eyes a little later and motioned to us to sit down. When her worship was over, Gouri-Ma spoke to her about my initiation. I had already talked the matter over with Mother....A little later she said to me, "Bring your carpet and sit on my left side."




 




"Mother," I said, "I have not yet bathed in the GangA."




 




"That matters little," Mother replied. "I am sure that you have put on fresh clothes?"




 




I sat near her.. My heart beat heavily. Mother asked everyone to leave the room. Then she said to me, "Tell me what you have received in your dream."




 




"Shall I write it down or utter it?" I asked.




 




"Say it," Mother said....




 




At the itme of my initiation Mother explained the significance of the mantra I had received in my dream. She continued, "Repeat that mantra first." Then she uttered a new mantra and said, "In the end repeat this and meditate over it."




 




(to be continued....)
