Swami Ishanananda:

We rested at Vishnupur for two days, and then we started early morning in six bullock carts. At Jaypur, eight miles away, we began cooking in a small wayside hut. When the earthen vessel in which the rice was cooked was being taken from the fire, it suddenly gave way, so that the rice and gruel fell on the floor.

We were all at our wit's end. But nothing dismayed. Mother removed the gruel carefully, and placed some of the hot rice on some sAl leaves for the Master, together with the curries, and then taking out the Master's picture from the box, said with folded hands, "Thus you have ordered it today. So please help yourself to some hot food."

We could not help laughing at what Mother was doing. At this she said, "Have I not to fit myself to *circumstances? Now, will you all sit down!"

*(Referring to an instruction of the Master to herself. A second cooking was out of the questiom - time would not allow this.)

As we sat down in a circle, Mother served food on our leaves and she too sat down at one corner for her meal; and she remarked, "The cooking is fine." Soon after finishing our meal, we restarted the carts and reached Koalpara at about 11 o'clock at night.
