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

In the course of a letter, Swami Premamanda wrote of the 


Holy Mothers' humanity, "Our Mother, an empress among queens, 


has become of her own accord a beggar and does all the menial 


work with her own hands. She is putting up with hardship to 


teach house-holders how to perform their duties."





In another letter: "Who indeed has understood Holy Mother? In her there is not the slightest manifestation of power. The Master displayed the power of enlightenment. But in Holy Mother even that is absent. Indeed what a great power she is! We send to her the poison that we cannot swallow. She welcomes all. Such unlimited power!





"Such compassion! Even the Master could not act thus, not to speak of us. He used to pick and choose his disciples. And what do we see in the Mother? She gives shelter to all. She swallows all this poison and digests it too."





One day a disciple asked her, "Well Mother, do you always remember your real nature?" "How could that be?" she replied. "How then, could I perform all these duties? But even in the midst of my activities, whenever I wish, I can understand by the slightest effort that all this is the mere play of MahAmAyA."
