A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
Udbodhan (Mother's Room), 24 April, 1912:
I had a headache. When I went upstairs at four in the afternoon, I told the Mother about my headache and she said, "Perhaps it is due to the heat." And she went and fetched ghee and camphor on a leaf, which she kneaded together and rubbed on my forehead with her own hand. ...A little later my headache was gone....
A Polish lady had come to India to study Vedanta. At Calcutta she had heard about Mother and came to visit her. She had some conversation with Mother and declared that the teachings of the Bahai community resembled the Master's in that they too sought to unite all religions. The lady herself appeared to be a member of that community.
After she had left, I asked Mother, "Well, how did you find her?"
"Quite nice," Mother replied.
"They come from far off," I said. ..."Poland and Udbodhan office are far apart, you can have no idea, Mother, how far apart!"
Mother said, "The Master declared in an ecstatic mood, 'I shall be worshipped in every home in future. There is no telling of the number of devotees I shall have.' Nivedita once said, 'Mother, we are Bengalis too. It was our karma that made us have our birth there. But you see, we too shall become Bengalis - true to the core..' - This is their last birth."
