Library House

From 25 October 1922 till 7 February 1927 Mother lived at the Library House. Her room was on the first floor and looked northward.

 

Salon

From 7 February 1927 till 24 April 1932 Mother lived in the Meditation House. At 24 April 1932 Salon was opened and she used it as a room for her rest. Also she used a “Green Room” as boudoir. But these rooms were not her private abode and many people used to come in and go through freely enough.

“The Mother's Room”

In 1953 on a roof of the Meditation House was built a room for the Mother — “The Mother's Room”. See reminiscences on building of this room.

“The Mother's Music Room”

In 1962 on a roof of the Meditation House to the east from the Mother's Room was built “The Mother's Music Room” with balcony to east. See reminiscences on building of this room.
