Sri Chinmoy about his meeting with Mother Teresa Rome, 1 October 1994

“We were sitting at a very small table. My hands were folded over my heart. After a few seconds, Mother reached out and pulled my left hand towards her. Then she started pressing my fingers, one by one, from the tip of the finger to the wrist.

“When she finished with my left hand, she took my right hand from my heart and did the same thing…

“One moment Mother was acting like a mother, the next moment like an elder sister and the third like a younger sister. It was like a brother and sister having a family gathering. No other world figure has shown me this kind of affection!”
