The Holy Mother said later, "Ah! How much I prayed to the Master! How often I cried to him! That is why you see today all these monasteries established through his grace. Immediately after his passing away, these children renounced the world and found a temporary shelter. But soon after, they began to wander about independently. 





"I felt very sad and prayed, 'O Master, you came down to earth, had fun with a few companions, and then went away in a happy mood. Was that the whole purpose of you embodiment? If so, what was the need of assuming a human body and going through all this physical suffering? I have seen many holy men in Varanasi and Vrindaban who live on alms and take shelter under trees. One sees them everywhere. 





'I cannot bear the sight of my children, who have renounced everything in your name, going from door to door for a morsel of food. I fervently pray to you that those who give up the world in your name may not lack simple food and clothing. They should live together, meditating on you and your teachings. People afflicted with the sorrows of the world will go to them for peace. 





'Isn't this the purpose of your coming? I cannot control myself when I see them drifting about helplessly'."
