A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
Udbodhan, 1 May, 1912 (Full Moon Day of VaishAkha):
I had gone to read Mother's letters to her in the morning.....I said, "The daughter of a disciple has written from her husband's home wishing to come here. She has sent her respects and does not wish her in-laws to know that she has written."
"Then there is no need to reply," Mother said, "I do not appreciate this hide-and-seek. At Jayrambati, Jogendra the postman used to write our letters. Many people said, 'What! The postman reads your letters!' But why not? I have nothing to hide; anybody who likes may see my letters."
Another disciple had asked when she would be going to Jayrambati. "Shall I say in the month of AgrahAyana (November-December), at the time of JaggadhAtri pujA?" I asked.
"No, no, how do you know for certain?" Mother objected, "I may be anywhere, it is all in the hands of God. We are here today, gone tomorrow."
"Why should you say so?" I protested. "It is because you are with us that so many people come and find comfort."
"True," Mother agreed.
"Then remain for our sakes," I implored.
