jai sri ramakrishna!!! Aren't we all premature babies??? Don't get me wrong, I too find inspiration, unconditional love and solace within the compassionate words of MA regardless of what form she speaks through. Some books closest to my heart, Mata Meera's "Answers," "The Black Goddess of the Dakineshwar Temple," as well as works by Sri Yukteswar . . . Understanding that Ma provides us with the proper meal, often I find myself tossing the book aside to plead with MA directly. For me, the books are the bright colored stains in which i gladly soak . . . Jai ma!!! Who can really understand her ways??? Thanks for listening. I love being here!!

As Anthony suggests each one has his own needs. I need these books and all the strength and support while on this path. As Sri Ramakrishna says... doesn't the Mother know and provide the meals according to the needs of the child?
Maybe I am the premature baby who still needs these books. Whatever I am, I can confidently say I am a son of the Mother... and when I say this where is the need for anything else? ... I have cast my burden on Her.
Brandon: Welcome to the courtyard... on second thoughts who am I to welcome a child when he comes to be with his own Mother? So let me say, I am glad to see you over here. I would like to remind all of us here that what we overhear here is what Mother wants us to listen to ... She is the Real Listener in the courtyard. All the children are just lucky to hear their brothers and sisters communicate with their own Mother.
If you love being here, can you imagine how happy the Mother is to see Her own child here?? THINK
Mother is not only here but always with each one of her children. Did she not remind her son once "My child whenever you are in trouble just tell yourself you have a Mother"
