Insights to Enlightenment, meeting ShantiMayi


A private Darshan with ShantiMayi (Rishakesh Dec 1993)

In 1993,  I was enjoying the wonders of Rishakesh.   People I met kept telling me about an enlightened American lady in Lakshman Dula.  I had earlier met a young Indian man called Abhinav, in Chilianola and again in downtown Delhi.  He again appeared and told me that he was friends with ShantiMayi.   He took me to meet her and for four weeks,  I had the pleasure of sitting with her by the Ganga, every day.

It was a joy to listen and interact with her.   I was very blessed.   Today,  many of the things that she shared with me about enlightenment and my personal journey toward enlightenment are still unfolding.

I last visited her in January 2004.   Her radiance and wisdom continues to shine.
