The life blood of my country

Shri Mataji was actively involved in the freedom struggle | Sahajayoga Reviews

Shri Mataji was once with Mahatma Gandhi when it was time for a meal. The servant came in and Gandhi gave him the key of a cupboard, and Gandhi looked to see how many people were staying for lunch, and then measured out one scoop of rice for each person. Someone asked why he was doing this, because he was not short of food.

‘This is the life blood of my country, I cannot waste it,’ he said.
