Tulsi Bose’s House

Ananda Sangha Kolkata is happy to announce the possibility for people to visit the house of Tulsi Bose on pilgrimage while in Kolkata. Master often visited Tulsi’s home and meditated there. Although Tulsi Bose is no longer in his body, his daughter Hassi Mukherjee resides in the house.
This extract is taken from the book Shaped by Saints written by Devi Mukherjee.

” … when Master returned to India in 1935, he stayed with Tulsi and Martan Ma in their home. He also blessed the child in Martan’s womb, saying, ” This child will be a girl, and will be very devoted.” He gave Martan an apple ” for the baby,” whose name was Hassi, which means, ” Laughter.” Indeed, Hassi has always been blessed with a happy disposition.”
(Devi is the husband of Hassi Mukherjee.  Martan Ma and Tulsi Bose were Hassi’s parents.)
