Sri Sarada Devi
The Holy Mother
Worshipped during her lifetime as a manifestation of Divine Motherhood,
Sri Sarada Devi's throne was the earthen floor. Her adornments were the
white sari with a thin red border and two simple gold bracelets. In place
of bow, trident and other divine weapons, Mother carried a broom and basket.
To take darshan of Mother was to help her with the daily chores of cleaning
and preparing food for offering. Her principal concern was that her children
have enough to eat. All who came were her children. Mother's benediction
was an outstretched hand of welcome which bade one always to come again.
