Anandamayi Ma, the blissful Mother
In 2010 I spent time at the ashram of Anandamayi Ma in Haridwar, India.
It was after a few years of serious loss and letting go in my own life.
I attended meditations and satsang at her ashram.
Anandamayi Ma's words :
Question : Is it difficult to know which is the true path?
Answer : If you sit with all doors and windows closed, how can you see the path?
Open the door and step out, the path will become visible.
Once on the way, you will meet other wayfarers, who will advise and guide
you as to your path. Your job is the muster whatever strength you have to
get underway - thereafter help is assured.
All names are Thy name and all forms are Thy form.
Do you want deliverance from the bonds of the world? Then weeping profusely, you will have to cry out from the bottom of your heart: Deliver me, Great Mother of the World, deliver me!.... When by the flood of your tears the inner and outer have fused into one, you will find her whom you sought with such anguish, nearer than the nearest, the very breath of life, the very core of every heart....
I invite you to participate in this Art Novena for Our Lady of Lourdes, the blessed Mother.
