The play of Devotion

The first building of the Madras Monastery cracked in several places within a couple of years of its construction. When it rained, water would come down through the fissures in the roof. At such times Swami Ramakrishnananda would go into the shrine to see whether water was leaking through the ceiling.

One night it began to drip inside the shrine too, right on Sri Ramakrishna's picture. Swami Ramakrishnanda stood there holding an umbrella till the night passed and the rain stopped. He did not remove the picture to a safer side because that would wake his Master from sleep at an untimely hour, which would be wrong."
