" Bogus Ma Ki Jai" ("Victory to the false Mother")



Found the following anecdote as recounted in the booklet "Sidelights on The Mother" by M.P.Pandit :


A sadhak who was behaving erratically asked a young boy to shout
" Bogus Ma Ki Jai" ("Victory to the false Mother")

Someone reported this to Mother and suggested that the sadhak might be sent away. Mother heard everything and remarked that it had proved good with some who were sent away. But one could not be sure that it would be so with all. Besides, she asked why he was to be sent away.

"He speaks against you and that upsets us."

Mother: Those who get upset by these things are worse.

She refused to take action against him. Not only that, but later when he was declared a patient of T.B. and the doctor was against receiving him back from the sanatorium, Mother insisted on making proper arrangements for his care. And he lived on as a sound sadhak for years after medical opinion had written him off.
