One day at Church Lane, Maharaj was in a happy mood, and only my mother, my wife, and I were sitting by his takhat. In that atmosphere my mother asked him, “Baba, show me God.” At once Baba said, “You will see. You will see. You will see.”
My mother remained ill for a long time and suffered a lot. When her end came, we observed many wonderful changes in her. All her suffering disappeared, and a great tranquility was seen on her face. An attractive radiance engulfed her.
While she was in this blissful state, I went to the prayer room and fetched the picture of Ram durbar (Lord Ram’s court) that she worshiped daily and placed it before her eyes. No sooner did she set eyes on it than she transcended herself. Her eyes were fixed on that picture, and looking at it without blinking, she passed away.
My mother’s joyful face and the lustre in her eyes gave us the impression that she saw God personified in that picture. All of us forgot the grief of parting, and overwhelmed by emotion, we chanted the name of Ram. This event took place after Maharaj’s Mahasamadhi.
