Visiting the Saints of India With Sri Daya Mata






Visiting the Saints of India With Sri Daya Mata takes the reader on an unforgettable spiritual pilgrimage. Recounted by Sri Mrinalini Mata—one of Paramahansa Yogananda’s foremost disciples and president and spiritual head of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India/Self-Realization Fellowship from 2011 until her passing in August 2017—the book chronicles many of her profound experiences during a prolonged trip to India in the early 1960s.

Mrinalini Mata provides fascinating insights into two of India’s most revered saints of the twentieth century, Sri Anandamoyi Ma and Sri Sitaramdas Omkarnath. Sri Daya Mata—SRF/YSS’s former president whom she accompanied on this trip—also emerges as a highly advanced disciple who manifested deep states of divine communion.

The fascinating narrative is complemented by dozens of vivid and soul-stirring photographs (many taken by Sri Ananda Mata, sister of Sri Daya Mata) and several taken by Mrinalini Mata herself.

About the Author
Sri Sri Mrinalini Mata
Sri Sri Mrinalini Mata, one of those personally trained and chosen by Paramahansa Yogananda to carry on the mission of his society after his passing, has been president and spiritual head of Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India since 2011. Born in Kansas in 1931, she met the Guru in 1945, at the Self-Realization Fellowship Temple in San Diego. Just a few months later, with her parents’ permission, she entered Sri Yogananda’s ashram in Encinitas, California, as a nun of the Self-Realization Order. Through daily association during the years that followed (up until the time of the Guru’s passing in 1952), Paramahansaji personally trained her to prepare his writings and talks for publication after his passing. She has made six extended trips to India to serve the Guru’s work there, and served as vice-president of SRF from 1966 until 2011. She is also editor-in-chief of SRF publications.
