At one stage, through some connection of Shri Mataji’s, we were going to have a public meeting in Cambridge in 1976, the first one. It was in an old people’s home. To get there we all went in Shri Mataji’s big official car and there wasn’t much space. I had nearly cut the top of my finger off and She held it nearly all the way there. When we got to Cambridge, Mother had to really labour to get any attention out of these people — it was very stony ground.
