Sarayubala Devi:




 




4 September, 1918:




 




Mother: "I was very happy at Belur too, such a peaceful place, with an atmosphere of meditation. That's why Naren had always wished to have a place there. As for the four *cottahs of land, on which this house (i.e. Udbodhan at Baghbazar, Calcutta) was built, this was a gift from Kedar Das."




 




*(2,880 square feet - actually the plot measured 2,340 square feet - Publisher)




 




Another day Mother was sitting in the north veranda, and a young man, who led an ordinary householder's life, was talking to her. He laid his head at the Mother's feet and said, "Mother, I have suffered much in the world, but you are my perceptor and my deity, I know nothing more. I have committed so many evil deeds that I dare not confess them even to you. Yet your compassion has always saved me."




 




Mother lovingly stroked his head and consoled him saying, "To a mother, a son is always a son."




 




"Yes I know, Mother", he answered, "but because I have received such compassion from you, may I never imagine that it is something easily to be obtained."
