During one of the visits of Shri Mataji to Calcutta in 1980s, my father requested Her to invite all the Sahaja Yogis from the West for dinner at our house after the public program. At the end of the program, Shri Mataji invited all the Sahaja Yogis, Indian as well as Western to our home which created a logistics issue. Whereas there were about twenty or so Western Yogis, there were about hundred Sahaja Yogis in total.
I could see that my mother was a bit worried for there wasn’t enough time to increase the quantity of food. She instructed the family cook to quickly make some potatoes and I noticed my mother praying, “Shri Mataji please enter the kitchen as Annapurna and take care of the dinner.”
Each of the hundred Sahaja Yogis ate well and the food turned out to be just sufficient. Interestingly, there was “Sarson Ka Saag” – an Indian vegetable dish that was left over. We ate this for three days afterwards and still there was plenty left over. So, my mother went to Shri Mataji and narrated the incident. Shri Mataji replied that as Annapurna, She had to make sure that this vegetable was plenty for all. She instructed my mother to throw the remainder away because that’s the only way to get rid of that “Sarson Ka Saag”.
