A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
We spent a number od days at Varanasi living in a separate rented house. One evening as Sister Sudhira and I sat near Mother, she said, "Whoever has called upon the Master once, has nothing more to fear. If one calls upon him repeatedly he has compassion, and so a devoted attachment comes into being.
"This love for love's sake should be hidden from all eyes. The Gopis of BrajadhAm [Vrindaban) experienced it, they knew nothing but Krishna. Nilakantha sang, 'One must guard with care this jewel of Love,'" and Mother herself sang the song in such a sweet voice that it still rings in my ears.
At the end of the song, Mother said, "How beautiful are Nilakantha's songs. The Master loved them. When he was at Dakshineswar, Nilakantha would sometimes come to him and sing. We were so happy in those days. All sorts of people would come to him. A regular joy-fair seemed to have opened at Dakshineswar."...
