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

Jayrambati, 14th July, 1913:
"One day at Udbodhan Golap-didi cleaned the lavatories," Nalini started, "then changed her clothes and immediately sat down to peel fruit for the Master's offerings. I said, 'What are you about, Golap-didi! Go and take a dip in the GangA.' Golap-didi said, 'Go yourself, if you want!'
"Golap's mind is pure and noble," Mother said. "That is why she has no obsession about what is pure and what is not. This will be her last incarnation. You will have to be bron again in a different body,
before you have a mind like hers...This mind becomes pure after long practice. Purity can never be had without piety.
What happens whn one finds God? Does one grow two horns?
No indeed, but the mind becomes pure. And illumination dawns on a pure mind."
"How do they find God, who calmly depend upon God and do nothing for themselves," I asked.
"As for those who depend upon God and have faith in Him, well, that itself is their sAdhanA." Mother explained. "Naren once said, 'Why should we fear even if we are born a hundred thousand times?' He was quite right, why should a man who has knowledge be afraid of being born? They never sin. It is those who have no knowledge who should be afraid. They get entangled, they are engrossed in sin. They suffer for thousands of births, and in the end their sorrows make them seek God."....
