Holy Mother By Swami Nikhilananda: 301 27-December-2016

Holy Mother By Swami Nikhilananda: 301

Chapter 13 – In the Role of Teacher : 020

A young man, a householder, said to the Mother one day: ‘Mother, I have suffered a great deal from the world. You are my guru, you are my Ishta. I do not know anything else. Truly, I have done such vile things that I am ashamed to tell you about them. I am still here only on account of your grace.’ The Mother affectionately stroked his head said: ‘To the Mother, a child is always a child.’ Deeply moved by her compassion, he said: ‘It is true, Mother. I have received so much of your kindness. But may I never feel that such kindness is easy to win.’

All these incidents bear out what the Lord said in the Bhagavad Gita: ‘Even if the most sinful man worships Me with unswerving devotion, he must be regarded as virtuous; for he has made the right effort.’
