This incident happened in the life of Swami Abhedananda: On 7 May 1915, during World War I, a British liner was destroyed by a German submarine in the Atlantic Ocean, near the Cork coast of Ireland. As many as one hundred and ninety-eight passengers died. This is the recorded reminiscence of Swami Abedhananda: In 1915, I was in London. On 6 May I went to the booking office to purchase a ticket from London to New York on the S.S.Lusitania. While I was in that office, a mysterious thing happened. I was about to buy the ticket, but immediately I heard a clear voice forbidding me to buy it. I was dumbfounded. I thought it might be a freak of my mind. I looked around but couldn’t find anybody. So again I went to the counter and the same thing happened. Then I decided to return to the apartment without buying the ticket. However, I planned to buy the ticket the following day. The next morning I saw in the newspaper in big letters “S.S.Lusitania Is No More”. I was overwhelmed. Tears rolled down my cheeks. I realised that the Master had saved my life.
