Sri Sarada Devi, the Holy Mother (1853–1920)

Sri Sarada Devi affectionately known as Holy Mother, was at once devoted wife, spiritual companion and object of worship of Sri Ramakrishna. After the passing away of Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother became the spiritual guide of the fledgling Ramakrishna Order and countless devotees. She is revered as a symbol of universal motherhood, whose wisdom and spiritual grandeur remained hidden beneath her natural veil of modesty.
