Holy Mother took birth on 22 December 1853
Once when Shyamasundari Devi was living with her father, she had occasion to sit in the dark beside a potter’s oven under a bel tree. There suddenly issued a jingling sound from the direction of the oven, and a little girl came down from the branches of the tree. She laid her soft hands round Shyamasundari’s neck, whereupon she fell unconscious. She had no idea how long she lay there thus. On regaining consciousness she felt as though the little girl had entered her womb.
Ramachandra was then in Calcutta. One day, before he had decided to start for the city, he was engrossed in that thought. Then he fell asleep and dreamt that a little girl of golden complexion embraced him from behind by throwing her delicate arms round his neck. Ramachandra was greatly surprised and asked, “Who are you, my child?” The girl replied in the softest and sweetest of voices, “Here am I come to you.”
