One of our dearest devotees, Prabhu Prabhu read out some beautiful paragraphs from the book “Only he could lead them”. This one stood out the most for me :
Mukunda: I was sitting alone with Swamiji in his room, and he was very grave and silent. His eyes were closed. Then, suddenly, tears began flowing from his eyes. And he said in a choked voice, “My spiritual master was no ordinary spiritual master.” Then he paused for some time, and wiping the tears from his cheeks, he said in an even more choked voice, “He saved me.” At that point I began to understand the meaning of “Spiritual Master” and dropped all consideration of ever replacing Swamiji.
There were tears in his eyes as he read them out. We had too.
