19th June 1997
Our beloved and respected Gurudev named Athena Premamayee. The greatness
of her name is justified. A good number of disciples and devotees attended the condolence
meeting to preserve her memory. The meeting took place in the Samadhi temple. First we
observed silence. We chanted so many hymns. Many of us and myself sang devotional songs.
Everybody sand her praise.
Malina was speechless. When she started to glorify mother Premamayee,
she was weeping all along her speech. Malina and Nayan were greatly touched. Myself
garlanded her picture. We placed fruits and sweets as oblation.
It has been decided in the meeting that a room would be built. The name
of the room would be Premamayee Memorial. Half of the ash of her death body would be
placed in one of the corners of the room. Tombstone would be built there.
Premamayee observed that a few disciples used to go to sleep at night in
nearby disciples home at the time of Annakut festival. She did not like it. So she
told us to build one or two rooms. Rest of the ash would be immersed in the mother Ganges.
It has also been decided in the meeting that if our mother Athena or American brothers and
sisters have instruction regarding the ash of mother Premamayees pyre, it should be
followed up first. Please let us know about it. Please write me beforehand about ... any
disciple who would come at the Calcutta Airport with mothers ash. Someone or myself
would go to the Calcutta Airport to receive them.
Would it possible for you to send us a beautiful picture of mother
Premamayee or its negative? Malina gave us a small picture of Mother Athena. We placed it
on the Altar. The picture is good but the eyes are hazy because of glasses.
Mother Premamayee was the embodiment of PREM. Prem and Pranam to you and
your wife and affectionate love to your babies.
