A READING from: "In The Company of The Holy Mother"
(available at all Vedanta Centres)
Jayrambati, 18 September, 1913:
Mother had written to someone, "There is no happiness while living in this body. The world is full of sorrow. Happiness is only an empty word. Only those who have received the grace of the Master can recognize him as God and that is their real joy."
A disciple who had renounced the world, visited Mother at Jayrambati and then went on to Hrishikesh. Just a few days later he wrote to Mother, "Mother, you told me that in time I would see the Master, but why have I not done so?"
Mother listened to the letter and said to me, "Go, write to him that just because he has gone to Hrishikesh, the Master will not be waiting for him there. He has become a monk, what should he do now but call upon God? He will appear when he wishes."
