Subbalakshmi's dream

(Photo of Mother's Nirvana Room taken by author, free to copy/use)

I could not get a darshan on the 'Nirvana day' because of the long queue. Bhagavan however graciously appeared in a dream and said:
Amma, how long should I bear the body? Death is natural to it.
It is like a leaf on which the food has been eaten. It has to be thrown away.

-- Subbalakshmi Krishnamurthi in UY, p125
