Sarada herself developed into an gentle and guileless girl who never quarrelled with her playmates and often acted as peacemaker in their
misunderstandings and disagreements. Meticulously she did her share of the family duties, helping her mother in the kitchen, picking cotton in the fields, feeding the cattle and looking after her younger sister and her brothers.

Now and then she accompanied her brothers to school, and in the course of time she could read the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. But she first became acquainted with the spiritual culture of India through the religious somgs of mendicants and from rural dramas depicting scenes from Hindu mythology.

At the age of five Sarada was married to Sri Ramakrishna, then twenty-three years old. The Master had been passing through a state of God-intoxication. As he was completely indifferent to food, sleep, and other physical requirements, and absorbed day and night in meditation and prayer, people took him for a madman. His relatives finally hit upon the idea of finding him a wife so as to bring his mind to the normal state.
