Udbodhan, Calcutta:

Sometimes Jogin-Ma had her doubts. The Master had renounced everything, but Mother appeared to be very worldly, always worrying about her nephews and nieces. Jogin-Ma could not understand her. While meditating beside the GangA one day, she seemed to see the Master standing before her. "Look," said he, "what is that floating on the river?" It was a dead new-born child with the cord wrapped around its body. The Master said, "Can the GangA be polluted? Or can anything contaminate it? Know her as such too. Have no doubts about her. She is one with me."

Jogin-Ma returned from the riverside and took the dust off the feet of Mother, saying, "Mother forgive me."

"Why, Jogen, what has happened?"

"I doubted you, Mother, but the Master has shown me the truth." Mother laughed a little and said, "What does that matter? Certainly you will have doubts. There will be questionings and faith will return again. That is how faith is established."

A woman devotee used to come to Mother at the 'Udbodhan'. Mother loved her very much. But as her reputation was not good, many monks did not like her presence near Mother. When Mother was told about this she said, "Many things float in the GangA; but is the GangA polluted by them?"
