A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
One day Sister Nivedita said to me, "Holy Mother is coming to our school today. You must all rejoice." Mother's carriage arrived at four in the afternoon, instead of in the morning. Radhu, Golap-Ma, and some others accompanied her. As she stepped down from the carriage Sister Nivedita prostrated herself before her and then placed seats for them.
She gave me flowers to place at Mother's feet. The girls all made offerings of flowers and Sister Nivedita introduced each one of them. Mother asked the girls to sing. They sang and recited a poem. Sweets were brought in, which received her benediction and were then distibuted among us.
Sister Nivedita took her round the rooms and showed her the girls' handiwork. Mother was delighted and praised everything.
