Swami Ishanananda:

Mother: "After his (Naren's) return from foreign lands, he said, 'By your grace, Mother, I didn't have to cross the ocean by jumping (referring to Hanuman) in this age, but went to those parts in their own ships. And there, too, I noticed the glory of the Master. What a great number of good people have heard about him from me with astonished eagerness and have accepted this idea!' "

Then she added, "They too are my children - don't you agree?"

In this connection a few more incidents come to my mind. Once during the DurgA pujA, Mother asked me to purchase some clothes for her brother's children. I brought in only the (coarse) country-made stuff. The women of the family rejected most of these and wished to have finer clothes. I became excited and exclaimed, "That will be foreign fabric. To think that one can purchase these!"

Mother was sitting at a corner and listening to everything. She said with a smile, "My boy, they (the foreigners) too are my children. I have to carry on with all. Can I afford to be partial? Bring for them the clothes just as they want."

Later on I noticed that whenever Mother had to get any foreign article for anyone, she asked somebody else to do the marketing. It was against her nature to hurt anyone's feelings.
