One day Hazra said to the Master, ‘Why do you constantly long for Narendra and other youngsters? They are quite happy by themselves eating, drinking and playing. You had better fix your mind on God. Why should you be attached to them?’ At these words, the Master took his mind away from the young disciples completely and merged it in the thought of God. Instantaneously he entered into Samadhi; his beard and hair stood straight on end. Just imagine what kind of a man the Master was! His body became hard like a statue. Ramlal, who was attending on him, said repeatedly, ‘Please be your former self again.’ At last the mind came down to the normal state. It was only out of compassion for people that he kept his mind on the material plane. ...

Regarding the method of consecrating food the Mother said, “Look here, my dear, consider the Master as your very own and say, ‘Come, sit, take, eat.’ And you should think that he has come, is seated, and is eating. What need is there of Mantras and such formalities with regard to one’s own? Those things are like the courtesies and considerations one has to show when one’s friends and acquaintances come on a visit; for one’s own, no such thing is necessary. He will accept your gift whatsoever way you may offer it.” ...
