Shri Mataji in America – farmers and crops

Mahasaraswati Puja, 14 January 1983, Dhulia India | Sahajayoga Reviews

I had the opportunity to hold some of the meetings in Tiffin, Ohio, and met many of the members of this seeking group who had spent the week with Shri Mataji in 1972. They were all elderly by the time I knew them. They all spent a week with the Goddess, and then went right on seeking, basically. They never understood much about Her, but had fond memories of the time they spent.

I remember one man who was a farmer and he told me that Shri Mataji had put Her finger in a glass of water for a moment, and had then given it to him and instructed him to put it on his crops. He told me he never understood why She had done that, and asked what I thought. I asked him if he had followed Her instructions and he said he had.

‘How were your crops that year?’ I asked. He said they were fantastic.

In 1972, Shri Mataji also spoke in San Diego at some sort of seekers’ conference.
