A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
3 September, 1918:
"The Master spoke of nothing but God," Mother continued. "He would say to me, 'Look how worthless is the human body. Here today, gone tomorrow, and so many sorrows and troubles through life....God alone is the Eternal Truth, one's good lies in calling upon Him. The body is the source of complications.'
"The other day, Bilash (Swami Vishweshwarananda) came and said, 'We have to be so careful, Mother; we have to be always on guard, in case some evil arises even in the mind.' You understand they are like white cloth, whereas worldly people are like black cloth, on which even ink-spots do not show, but a single spot on white material catches the eye. To be in the body is a source of evil...That's why the Master used to say, 'Be careful, you who have given up the world.'...
"The Master advised people to have self-control after they had two or three children."
