SARADA  MA **                
                    
Your eyes are made of light and voice of song
Stones melt and mould at your beaming smile
To drink your nectar-words devotees throng
Traversing miles

‘I am mother of the righteous and the vile’
You say this weaving a love-web so strong
Children of all races and time bond, smile

Your presence in my heart I do so long
That I can make the world my own and smile
Journey through countless births to right the wrongs
Traversing miles

·         **Sarada Devi, (1853 - 1920), born Saradamani Mukhopadhyaya,[1] was the wife and spiritual counterpart of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, a nineteenth century mystic of Bengal. Sarada Devi is also reverentially addressed as the Holy Mother. Sarada Devi played an important role in the growth of the Ramakrishna Movement.
