We were walking. Shri Mataji wanted to do shopping, so we went to Bloomingdales in Chestnut Hill in the Boston area and wandered through the store. She was particularly interested at that time in freshwater pearls and was looking at a beautiful freshwater pearl necklace where all the pearls were perfect.
Then we wandered to a different part of the store where they had home goods, cutlery and things like that and as we were there, Seiji Ozawa, then the director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and quite a famous director, passed by us. I recognized him.
‘Shri Mataji, that is the conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra,’ I said.
‘I think that one is a realised soul. He must be a realised soul — born realised,’ She said.
‘Really, Shri Mataji?’ I replied.
‘Yes, because his pupils dilated when he saw Me, when he walked past.’
