Daily Reading

A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother" 

(available at all Vedanta Centres)


Page 5

In Sri Ramakrishna's company, Saradamani's happiness knew no bounds.

"At that time," she said later, "I always felt as if a jar brimful of bliss was set in my heart. It is impossible to describe the fullness of that joy."

Sri Ramakrishna had a foreknowledge of Sarada's mission and continuously taught her about the unsubstantial nature of the world and the reality of God.

The next four years Sarada spent at Jayrambati. Naturally she missed her husband and an unexpressed anguish ate into her heart. In the meantime, a report came to the village that her husband had become insane, and the villagers began pointing at her as a madman's wife. She therefore avoided them as much as possible and tried to busy herself in her household duties.

But she appeared as tranquil, introspective, compassionate, and unselfish as ever. Now she made up her mind to come to Dakshineswar and see the situation with her own eyes. Her father agreed to accompany her. During the trip she was attacked with a high fever and thought that she would not be able to see her husband. 

But as she lay ill she was assuured in a vison by the Divine Mother Kali that the purpose of her journey would be fulfilled. After recovering somewhat, she proceeded to Dakshineswar with her father.
