In the beginning it might start in a small way, but with regular observance, it becomes very dear to them. They feel it is their time with God, and they spend more and more time in their pujas and prayers. He becomes dear to them. They become interested in pleasing and serving Him out of their love for Him, not for asking anything for themselves. They spend more and more time in pujas and rituals, and many others begin to derive benefit from them.

Indeed, with Her I was able to have the relationship that my greenness on the path never permitted me to have with Master during his lifetime. It was a relationship which, far from taking me from my Guru, served to deepen my relationship also with him. Just reading this was so uplifting. Its so true that what we take away from saints is directly proportionate to the devotion, love and openness of our hearts.

Anandamayi means "bliss-permeated mother", a name given by her disciples in the s to describe her habitual state of divine bliss. During her life, she attracted thousands of followers who saw her not only as a teacher and guru, but as a manifestation of God, or Devi. Mooji loves Sri Anandamayi Ma and made this painting in honour of her.
