“Who is it that loves and who that suffers?
He alone stages a play with Himself.
The individual suffers because he perceives duality.
Find the One everywhere and in everything
and there will be an end to pain and suffering.”
– Sri Anandaymoy Ma
Ananda Moy Ma is an example of a great female spiritual Master. She grew up in a very modest environment and had herself no visible spiritual Master. She seemed to know everything from within.
She traveled her whole life from one place to another. She did not have any material wealth or even a fixed place to stay. She spent her life for her disciples and helped, wherever she could.
Ananda Moy Ma did not write anything herself, but many of her talks have been recorded by her disciples. She also did not found any organisation, but through her silent influence many ashrams were founded in her name.
She never really revealed who she was, but she convinced by her personality and great charisma.
