Satyavati was fourteen years old. One day she was busy with house hold
work and had worn a beautiful dress. At that time an old beggar lady came
there and told, "Oh my daughter give me some food to eat in the name of
God". Satyavati brought the food from kitchen and gave her. The beggar
said, "My daughter, God bless you. You are very kind hearted. Please give
me your this coloured shirt for my daughter. I like this very much."
Satyavati thought for a moment and went inside. After some time she came
out with her shirt and gave it to the beggar lady. The old lady blessed
her and set out happy. When the beggar had gone, Satyavati thought, "That
was my favourite shirt, I shouldn't have given it to the beggar".
At the same time an inner voice said to her, "Satyavati, why are you
felling like this? You are a religious person. Do not have attachment with
colours. Your life is natural white. You will show the path of welfare to
the world". She at once took an oath never to wear colored clothes in
future. From that day onwards she wore only white clothes.
