Shraddhaprana mataji attains mahasamadhi

My aunt left yesterday….. She will be reaching today at the crack of dawn in Manchester to be re-united with her son and daughter-in-law….. while I am left with memories of her stay with me!!! I am so going to miss her!!! and now I will be back to my “disla ga bai disla”

Another bad happening for me is that my guru, the president of the Sarada mission Shraddhaprana mataji…. attained mahasamadhi. She initiated me and hubby together into the ramkrishna-sarada mission and the spiritual way of life. This is proving to be a year of losses. Today is the bhandara our last day of paying our respects to our guru.

I wasn’t very close to her and apart from some brief meetings with her I don’t have much…… but today I regret that had I made more effort I would have been able to spend more time with her. All I have today is some brief sermons that I have heard from her. She was from the first batch of woman sanyasins initiated into the sarada mission.You will find her brief biography here.

I honestly don’t have much to write about her. Her biography says it all.

I close today with the sanskrit slok:

Om Purnamadah Purnamidam
Purnat Purnamudachyate
Purnasya Purnamadaya
Purnamevavashishyate
Om Shantih Shantih Shantihi
