Holy Mother's character, as revealed in this book, shows a rare blending of humanity and dignity. A divine simplicity pervades her dealings with her relatives, neighbours, disciples, and even with Sri Ramakrishna whom she regarded as God Incarnate.





Saradamani Devi, called Sarada for short, and later known and revered in India and abroad as Holy Mother, was born on December 22, 1853, in the little village of Jayrambati in the district of Bankura in West Bengal.





Her parents, Ramachandra, Mukhopadhyaya and Shyamasundari, were orthodox brahmins devoted to the traditional relgiious and social customs.

Shyamasundari was a hard-working woman. Innocent of the crooked ways of the world.
