A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
We reached Koalpara duly. That evening Radhu and the other women of the party started for Vishnupur. At five o'clock next morning I reached the Jagadamba Ashrama to find Mother wrapping up the picture of the Master in a piece of cloth after finishing her worship with some flowers and sweets. She deposited the picture in her box, addressing the Master at the same time thus: "Get ready now, it is time to start."
Noticing me, she went on, "So you are here. Why are you so late? The sun will be hot. Take this flower as a blessing for the start."
With this she took up a flower with which she had worshipped the Master, touching her head with it and handed it over to me. Then she took leave of all and got into the palanquin.
