A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
22 July, 1918:
I said, "I have read in the Gurudas Barman's book that later they built a thatched house for you and one night the Master was held up there because it was raining and he could not return to his own room."
Mother replied, "What do you mean by thatched house? It was an ordinary thatched shed. Sharat's (LilA-Prasanga) book describes it correctly. Master Mahashaya's book (KathAmrita) too is a fine one, and gives the Master's sayings word for word. Such sweet words! I hear there is enough material for four or five more parts. But he is getting old now, will he be able to do it?
"He has made a good deal of money from the sale of his books and I am told he has put it all aside. He donated nearly a thousand rupees for my house in Jayrambati, four hundred for the house and four hundred for other expenses, and he sends me ten rupees every month. Sometimes he sends me even more, as much as twenty rupees or twenty-five, when I am here (in Calcutta). When he was employed at the school he used to give me two rupees."
