the Master's Photograph......

Disciple: Mother, that photograph of Sri Ramakrishna which you have is a very good one... Is it a good likeness of him?

Sri Sarada Devi: Yes, that picture is very, very good.....I kept it with the pictures of other gods and goddesses and worshipped it. At that time I lived on the ground floor of the nahabat. One day the Master (Sri Ramakrishna) came there and seeing the picture said, 'What is all this?' Then I saw him take the bel leaves and flowers kept there for worship and offer them to the photograph. He himself worshipped that picture.
