Saradasundari Devi (1819-1907) – Mother of Keshab Chandra Sen, daughter of Gaurhari Das of Garifa village. Married to Pyarimohan Sen at 10, widowed at 29, with four daughters and three sons, Keshab being the second. Had met the Master at her Colootola (presently 122C, Chittaranjan Avenue) and Lily Cottage residences, at Dakshineswar and also at Cossipore. Treated the Master to jalebi (a syrupy sweet) at the conclusion of kirtan sessions during a Brahmo festival at Lily Cottage. During the Master’s visit to the ailing Keshab at Lily Cottage on 28.11.1883, she had prayed to him to cure him. In response, the Master advised her to pray to the Divine Mother who would remove her troubles (The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, p. 323). Did not even bless Keshab’s eldest son, saying “It is not given to me to bless anyone”, while gently stroking his body (Ibid., p. 324). Sometime after Keshab’s demise she visited him at Dakshineswar with her daughters and others. Also visited him on 15.6.1884 (Ibid., p. 457). The Master sang and danced to entertain the grief-stricken family (Ibid., p. 461). Another day she visited him and the young boys of her family chanted the name of Hari while she went around them clapping her hands (Ibid., p. 581). The Master was pleased to see her devotion to God and find her grief controlled. She prayed to him to visit her house and the Master, accompanied by Baburam and a few devotees, visited the house of Nabin Sen and listened to kirtans. She also visited the Master at Cossipore on 13.2.1886 with Keshab’s widow and sons (Antyalila, 2.146).
