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.
