A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
14 August, 1918:
After a while Mother said, "This is a very bad year for the Math. My Baburam, Debabrata, and Sachin, all are gone." A few days before Debebrata Maharaj (Swami Pajnananda) passed away, Swami Brahmananda had seen a spirit at Udbodhan house. When I asked Mother about this, she cried, "Softly, they might get scared. The Master often saw such things. Once he went to Beni Pal's garden, together with Rakhal and was walking about in the garden when a spirit arrived and cried, 'Why have you come here, we are in agony. We can't stand your very breath, go away from here, go away.'
"How could they stand his holy atomsphere, his spiritual radiance! He laughed and came away without saying anything and immediately after dinner asked for a hackney carriage. He was supposed to remain there for the night and his hosts objected saying, 'Now, where can we find a hackney carriage at this time of night?'
"The Master replied, 'Yes, you will get one. They went and fetched one and he returned the same night. When I heard the sound of carriage wheels so late at night, I listened intently and heard the Master talking to Rakhal. I grew dreadfully worried wondering what I could give him, if he had not had his dinner. Other nights I always had something put away, a little hominy or something, because one never knew when he would suddenly demand food. That night I had kept nothing, as I was not expecting him."
