Shri Anandi Ma
Shri Anandi Ma
Later that day he asked her to describe her vision of the Divine Mother. "Did you see her as a picture, a statue, a living being?" Shri Anandi Ma answered, "Just as I see you now." Later that day, Shri Dhyanyogi said that Shri Anandi Ma was the most spiritually advanced person, for her age, he had ever met. With her parents' consent, she left home shortly after receiving Shaktipat to stay permanently with Shri Dhyanyogi. He took her under his wing and trained her to control and radiate her energies for the welfare of humanity, especially by giving Shaktipat. He said, "I have been asked by my Guru to hand over the powers of this lineage to her," and put aside all his major activities to work almost exclusively with her, day and night, for four years.
During this period Shri Anandi Ma would enter profound states of meditation for hours or days at a time. From the beginning, Shri Anandi Ma worked alongside Shri Dhyanyogi wherever he traveled, and accompanied him when he came to America in 1976. When Shri Dhyanyogi returned to India in 1980, he told Shri Anandi Ma and Dileepji to marry and continue his work together. Today, Shri Anandi Ma and Dileepji travel extensively in India, the United States and Europe, conducting meditation programs and yoga retreats. They provide spiritual guidance and Shaktipat initiation to sincere seekers.
As part of her role as Shri Dhyanyogi's spiritual heir, Shri Anandi Ma has also assumed the responsibility for continuing the humanitarian works begun during Shri Dhyanyogi's lifetime. These include operating a hospital, sponsoring eye surgery camps, and providing food for the poor. In all these works, she continues to spread the love and light of her lineage and of her beloved sadaguru, Shri Dhyanyogi Madhusudandas. Read more on Last.fm.
