(Letter from Mother to Satprem, on the road)
Satprem, my dear little one,
Now I can tell you that not for one hour have I left you; I have been constantly near you, hoping that your inner eyes would open and that you would see me, watching over you and enveloping you with my force and my love. It is within yourself that I want you to find the certitude, truth and joy.
Now I write you what I have wanted to tell you from the beginning: when you return to the Ashram, do not put on the orange robe1 again, return with the clothing X has given you...
And we shall leave the care of deciding about the details of the future to the Supreme Lord.
With all my love and blessings.
