I have met Amma only once. She had left such an affectionate and motherly impact on me like no one else. I admired her for her optimism and willingness to adapt new adventures that life bestowed upon her. She will live in our hearts forever.

Amma’s courageous nature coupled with her smile and friendly nature shall live in our thoughts and inspire us for a long time to come. We were fortunate to have enjoyed her acquaintance since the 60s when she arrived in Ottawa.
Our condolences to the family. She of course has achieved Moksha - is now free and Living with Him.
Hari Aum Tat Sat.
