Acceptance of our true nature, ShantiMayi

ShantiMayi reflects on the importance of accepting our true nature.

For the past three decades, ShantiMayi has cast seeds of actualization into thousands of receptive hearts and minds throughout the world. Her spirituality ripened in the light of a sublime affinity with her Spiritual Master, Shri Hansraj. Though her Master was Hindu and India was the ground of her ’rite of passage’, ShantiMayi is not held within any particular tradition. She eclectically draws upon the quintessence of many traditions and though this is so, she speaks from her own direct experience, relentlessly pointing us back to ourselves. She says of herself, ” I am but a reminder, perhaps … a poetic mirror”.
