Sarada Devi


Picture was taken in early 1898.

Sarada Devi said this about the above photograph:
‘Yes, this is a good picture. But before it was taken I was a little stouter. Then Yogen fell ill. Worrying about him day and night, I lost some weight. I was happy when he felt better, but very unhappy when he was worse. Often I wept for him. At first I refused to be photographed. But Sara pressed me and said: ‘I shall take the picture to America and worship it.’ In the end I had to agree.’ read more
