One day I was hanging out in Vrindavan Ashram with Maharajji's son-in-law Jagdish. I said, "It must have been amazing having Maharajji as your father-in-law.” He held up his open hand and said, "I saw Maharajji only once and that was for only ten minutes." He then narrated this story to me.
In India, after the parents have arranged a marriage, there is a ceremony where the bribe and groom meet for the first time. The ceremony is the presenting of the goddess Lakshmi to Lord Vishnu. The families were waiting for Maharajji before this rite, at a house in Agra. Maharajji arrived in a car, entered the house, presented Girija to Jagdish, and then left in the car 10 minutes after arriving. That was the extent of his time with Maharajji.
