A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
14 August, 1918:
Mother: "The temple doors were closed, it was one o'clock. He (the Master) clapped his hands repeating the names of the deities and had the door opened. I was saying to my maid, 'O Jadu's mother, what shall I do?' Somehow he heard me and realising my anxiety called out, 'Now don't worry, my dear,we have had our dinner.'
"Later on, when he told Rakhal about the ghosts (in Beni Pal's garden), he cried, 'How awful! It is just as well that you did not say anything then, otherwise my teeth would be chattering with fear! Hearing you tell the story even now, I feel afraid,'"
Mother laughed in her own way as she related the story.
"Mother, the ghosts were fools!" I said. "Instead of praying for salvation, why did they beg the Master to go away?"
"Surely they have found salvation after seeing the Master," Mother replied.
