On the ground floor of the Mother House, the mother-house in the Lower Circular Road in Calcutta, there is the simple and unadorned chapel where since September 13, 1997, after the solemn state funeral, the mortal remains of Mother Teresa. Inside, however, time seems to stop every time, crystallized into a kind of rarefied bubble the tomb chapel houses a poor and bare, a block of white concrete which has been placed on the personal Bible of Mother Teresa and a statue of Mary with a wreath at the neck, next to a marble tombstone engraved with the above, in English, a verse from the Gospel of John: "Love one another as I have loved you" (15:12).

Radha Ashtami, or Radhashtami, Radha's birthday is celebrated on the eighth day of the Shukla Paksha, during the waxing moon in the month of Bhadrapad August or September. In Brihad Gautamiya Tantra, Radharani is described as the direct counterpart of Lord Krishna, the primeval power of the Lord. The love of Radha Krishna is the symbol of the union of two souls, infinite and unconditional. Radha is the haladini shakti of Krishna.
