Postcard - "The Golden Temple, Amritsar"
(Baba Atal in the background) early 1900s

"'...at a shrine where the swords, sharp steel discs, coats of mail, and
other warlike weapons of the Sikh warrior priests are exposed to
view in charge of the akalis, I was greeted, to my surprise and joy, with
a loving smile by one of the Masters, who for the moment was
figuring among the guardians, and who gave each of us a fresh rose,
with a blessing in his eyes...." (Old Diary Leaves, Volume III, pp. 254-255, 1974 printing.)
In Olcott's own handwritten diary, the entry for October 26, 1880
reads:
"...In the afternoon we went to the Golden Temple again & found
it as lovely as before. Saw some hundreds of fakirs & gossains
more or less ill-favored. A Brother there saluted H.P.B. and me
& gave us each a rose." - Olcott's Account Of Meeting A Master At The Golden Temple In Amritsar On October 26, 1880.
