19 September, 1918:
Mother: "A girl named Haridasi arrived at Karmarpukur on her way to Navadvip and remained there. She was deeply attached to me and she had such faith! She gathered the dust from the Master's birthplace and treasured it. She would say, 'Why, this is Navadvip where the Lord GaurAnga came. What is the use of going to any other Navadvip? Such deep faith she had.
"After the Master had gone, a holy man from Orissa came and stayed at Karmarpukur. I would give him rice, pulses, and whatever else he needed and would ask him morning and evening, 'Holy Father, how are you now?'
"I had a great deal of trouble in building that one little hut for him. Every day the sky would be overcast with clouds and the rain would be on the point of pouring down. I would then fold my hands together and pray, 'Hold, Master, now! After his hut is ready, pour down as much rain as you like!'
"The villagers too helped with pieces of timber and other necessary things. Every day the rain seemed imminent. However, the hut was completed in this manner, but the holy man died in his hut only a few days later."....
