Ramprasad Sen, the renowned tantric, devotee of Mother Kali and great poet, was once walking to the Ganga for his prayers when a stunningly beautiful woman stopped him. "Kind sir, please sing me some of your songs to the Mother," said she.
Ramprasad answered, "Mother, I am getting late for my prayer. I shall complete my daily worship and sing to you."
After he returned, Ramprasad found that the woman had left. Later, when he slept the woman came to him in his dream and told him, "I am Annapurna of Varanasi and came here to listen to your songs and you did not do what I asked you to."
Ramprasad hurried to Varanasi so he could fulfill the wish of the Goddess. On the way, he stopped and slept a while, where the Goddess appeared to Ramprasad again. "Worship me here. I am in Varanasi, and I also pervade all existence," said the Mother.
Ramprasad did what he was ordered to and returned to his home.
May Mata Annapurna who blessed the poet Ramprasad Sen bless us with intelligence, wisdom and longing for service to the lotus feet of Maa Shyama, the first cause of the universe!
