Shree Maa is a being of exceptional spiritual attainment, and this book offers a glimpse into Her world.
Shree Maa was born into one of the most extraordinary families in India, which included both extremely wealthy businessmen and highly advanced yogis.
From her earliest years her only desire was to meditate, merging her own being into God. After several years, she began to roam throughout India in temples, forests, fields and homes, conducting pujas and archana to the Divine Mother, reading from the Chandi Path.
Born and educated in America, Swami Satyananda Saraswati worked for several major corporations in managerial positions before traveling to India in the mid 1960s.
At a time when journeying throughout Middle Asia was arduous at best, he traveled an unbeaten path into India’s interior and remained there for fifteen years, walking across the length and breadth of the Himalayas.
Swamiji returned to the United States with Shree Maa and since then has been working to share the teachings of Sanatana Dharma.
This is an introduction to some of the many great individuals who contributed to our knowledge, understanding, and experience.
These are historical figures who we came to know in the course of our spiritual search, either personally, through direct contact, spiritually, through metaphysical contact, or through their own writings, or histories about these people.
Our creed is that there is One All-Pervading, Infinite Divinity, which resides in every being of Creation, and is especially manifest in the hearts of all humanity. This Divinity inspires within seekers sincerity, joy, love and wisdom, and the highest respect for all that lives. All bodies are temples for the Holy Spirit, and the highest ideal of man is to honor God through loving service to all created beings, and attentive devotion in the pursuit of self-realization.
At Devi Mandir, our primary form of worship is to the Divine Mother, but ultimately, we worship all of creation. Everyday we perform the Cosmic Puja which includes the worship of all the Gods and Goddesses. Swami Satyananda has written numerous books that span the worship of every major deity of Sanatan Dharma.
