A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
The year Sister Nivedita breathed her last, Sister Sudhira too fell seriously ill. Mother was so anxious about her, saying, "O Master, must Sudhira go? She has still so much to do!"
"Could you get me news of Sudhira?" she would ask some friend. "Alas, she is so ill." When the friend agreed, she would send water blessed by the Master, pomegranates, and so on, saying, "Give these to her and bring me news of her. I offer tulasi leaves to the Master on her account."
After Sister Sudhira's recovery, we went to Mother's house, she, Sister Christine, and I. As we took our seat after bowing to her, she asked Sister Sudhira, "Have you recovered, my daughter?" Sister Sudhira said that she was quite well but still careful about her health.
"I was so worried about you," Mother said. "Anyway, now you are well again, by the mercy of the Master. Now that Nivedita was gone and you were ill, I kept wondering who would run the school, if you should go too."
Then looking at Sister Christine, she continued, "Alas, the two of them were always together, now it will be so sad for her all by herself. We miss her badly, my child, you must be feeling her loss still more deeply. What a great soul! So many people now weep for her," and Mother wept too. Later, she asked Sister Christine many questions about the school.
