Growing up with Amma and the Swamis has been such a precious gift. I have lived with Amma for thirty-one years and I can say with total honesty that the purity of our lives in the ashram has always been completely sincere. Any accusations that suggest otherwise are simply untrue. Our lives with Amma have always been dedicated to spiritual principles and selfless service.
“The world has never seen a purer love than that which the Guru has for her disciples. The love a mother has for her children, nothing is sweeter in this world.”
I was there in the beginning when Gail loved Amma. And I was there when her love died away. She felt the heat and fire of burning likes and dislikes, and was not able to overcome them. The day before she left she came to me and asked if I was happy and I could honestly say, “Yes.” Because of my association with Amma I have always experienced the fragrant breeze of Divine love blessing my life.
“Living at Amma’s side over the past three decades is a greater blessing than I could have ever imagined.”
People say that you can’t comment until you’ve walked in someone else’s footsteps. I have walked on the same path as she has but my experience has been completely different. Living at Amma’s side over the past three decades is a greater blessing than I could have ever imagined.
Only Amma’s selfless love and compassion remain constant, regardless of how people feel about her. Occasionally there are people who stop loving Amma and leave the ashram. Often they return years later, wanting to come back. Maybe one day even Gail will be asking to return.
