A Devotee:

24 December, 1915:

I took my family to see Mother at the 'Udbodhan'. My wife carried some sweets with her. The revered Golap-Ma was about to put them aside in order to offer them to the Master some other time, but Mother stopped her saying, "No, no, give my daughter-in-law's offerings to the Master just now, it will do her good."

Next morning my wife saw Mother again and on returning home in the evening, said to me, "Mother was so good to me today! Enough to give me happiness to last all my life. At nine or ten in the morning Mother sent for three-pice worth of puffed rice and fried peas and sat on the floor putting a few into her mouth from time to time, and giving me a handful at times saying, 'Eat, my daughter'.

"I have eaten many good things in my life but never enjoyed anything as much as that puffed rice with Mother today. At noon she asked me to rub her feet and put her bed clothes out in the sun. These little services that she accepted from me have made me feel blessed! I talked to her, too, this way: I asked, 'Mother, may I give cooked rice offerings to the Master?' She replied, 'Yes, my dear, do so. He loved vegetable dishes with bitter things.' 'Can I give him fish?' I asked. 'Yes, give him fish, offer them with the set prayers', she said, and then asked me, 'Does my son take fish?' 'Yes, he does,' I answered. 'Of course, he must take fish, and plenty of it,' Mother said."
