51. Ba, the mother of all
Ba always looked after the ashramites like her own children, attending to their needs and working along with them. Sometimes there would be a meeting or some guest would have arrived at the time of the kitchen work. The inmates would be eager to attend it or hear him. So Ba would say to those working in the kitchen, "All of you can go gladly. For, I know how eager you all are to go. I shall finish all that is to be done here. So do go."
