(available at all Vedanta Centres)
A few days later Mother, Jogin-Ma, and the others were resting after evening prayers. Mother was dozing off when she said, "So Purna is dead, Jogen?" Jogin-Ma was astonished. "Who told you so, Mother?" she asked. "I was asleep and thought I heard someone say so," said Mother.
Jogin-Ma then said, "Yes, he died in the evening. They did not inform you." That evening Mother spoke only of Purna Babu and grieved for him.
When the Master was ill at Dakshineswar, Mother had cared for him. Later the disciples brought him over to Calcutta for treatment. At this time one day Golap-Ma had casually remarked to Jogin-Ma, "I think the Master is displeased with Mother, and so he has gone away to Calcutta."
When Mother heard this from Jogin-Ma, she took a carriage to Calcutta and going to the Master wept and said, "Is it true that you came away here because you are displeased with me?"
The Master said, "Who said so?"
The Master was angry. "What! She dares to say such things and make you weep? Does she not know who you are? Where is she? Let her come." Then Mother grew calm again and retruned to Dakshineswar. Later when Golap-Ma came near the Master, he rebuked her severely, "What did you say to make her weep! Don't you know who she is? Go immediately and beg for forgiveness."
Golap-Ma immediately walked all the way to Dakshineswar and wept before Mother, "The Master is angry with me. I did not realize what I was saying."
Mother said nothing but laughed and patted her three times on the back crying, "O Golap! O Golap! O Golap!" and Golap-Ma was immediately conforted. She herself told me this story....
