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

19 September, 1918:
Mother: "I have come across all sorts of people in this life. Trailokya (son of Mathurnath Biswas and grandson of Rasmani) used to give me seven rupees every month. After the Master had gone, the cashier in the office at Dakshineswar and some others contrived to stop the payment. Many relatives too thought nothing of me but an ordinary woman and sided with them.
"Naren pleaded with them not to stop the allowance; but in spite of everything, they did so. But by the Master's blessing, you see, I have never been in need of money! Dimu and the others have been forgotten; but I have never yet been in want. And why should I be? The Master used to say to me, 'Whoever thinks upon the Lord, never knows want.'
"After the Master had gone, there was some dispute about who should have his good clothes. Such things should really belong to his disciples who would take care of them. In the end the disciples themselves packed the things away in a box and left it in Balaram Babu's parlour. But who can understand the will of God! One of the servants opened the box and stole many of the things, sold them and so on. The parlour was not the proper place of such things, they should have been stored away inside the house. What remained of his personal things is now at Belur Math."
