Tributes from Around the World

Hari Om

Her name shall be remembered for all time to come, whenever achievements of the movement are mentioned in the future. She was full of encouragement and wisdom to yoga aspirants and sannyasins of the ashram. I myself, during my visits to the ashram, never lost an opportunity to have her darshan and I always found her full of wit and humour whenever she narrated her immensely popular stories and events of the past.

Hari Om

I would like to offer a few words to that great lady I met many times in Munger. She represents for me the greatness of a disciple who could discover the genius in a young monk who was to become a Paramahamsa. Through her faithful devotion she also deserved to be the mother of another Paramahamsa, yet she was kind and modest, as if she was an ordinary person. Every time I met her I treasured her presence as a real saint.

Hari Om

Swamis and others at Rocklyn who had the blessings of Ammaji's grace and presence send our heartfelt condolences to you. Swami Dharmashakti was truly a great example and perfect role model of a female sannyasin, devotee, spiritual mother and guiding light for all generations – her presence will be greatly missed.

Blessings of peace, joy and inspiration.
