It was thirty years ago today that I first met Sri Mataji Nirmala Devi in person, and my life headed off in a completely unexpected direction. It was the culmination of my seeking for the divine that took me to many places, not only around the world, but also physically, mentally and emotionally. What I thought was the end of the road was simply the beginning of a new one that was almost the complete inverse of what had gone before.
In the subsequent years I was blessed to spend a lot of time in Her physical presence, moments that were filled with joy, laughter, knowledge and always surprises. I learned a lot about the world and about myself, and the Self. These are my most precious memories, some of which are so profound that it is impossible to express them or share them. Other moments I caught on film in India, Australia and throughout Europe. These are some of those photos of the most luminous and loving being you could ever meet.
