Amrit Desai’s Wife of over 50 years, "Mataji" passes away at 69 on July 31st

“Little did this simple child of rural India realize what lay before her, a life far beyond the imagination of anyone in her humble village. She would later marry the boy chosen by her parents when she was barely five years old, thinking they would continue the tradition of family and religious devotion as generations before her. With no expectations, she accepted her new husband’s early encouragement: “Finish high school, learn English…we are going to travel the world, including by airplane.” No one in her village had ever flown in an airplane, much less traveled to America. How could this young schoolteacher who made only 116 rupees have such dreams? That prophecy and much more came to pass during their 50+ years of marriage.”

  1. I honor Mataji for her great devotion to Swami Kripalu and for her Ayurvedic cookbook. She was truly an tremendous example of karma Yoga.

  2. Mataji’s service to Swami Kripalu while he was in America was a gift to those of us who knew him and were touched by his work. She was a living saint, and a humble servant of God.

  3. MATAJI IS AND WAS ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING SOULS WHO HAS WALKED AND SERVED ON THIS PLANET EARTH..HER REVERENCE AND DEVOTION TO BAPUJI WAS A STORY TO BEHOLD…HER TRUST,COURAGE,INTEGRITY, STRENGTH, FAITH, LOVE AND LAUGHTER & TENDER SPIRIT ARE SOME OF THE GIFTS THAT I CHERISH IN MY HEART OF MEMORIES AND EXPERIENCES…MY TREASURED FRIEND…AN ANGEL AND TRULY A LIVING SAINT…My Mataji

  4. Mataji lives eternally in spirit, her light shines as bright as the stars. I thank her for teaching by example…a True guru.
    Her magical smile will forever be etched in my heart.
    Kusum

  5. Mataji served the community around her with a selfless commitment to Truth most of us only aspire to. Her love for her Guru Bapuji and her commitment to staying in the healing light of acceptance, shone through her unwavering Practice of staying in Truth, accepting everthing that arose in her field of awareness as it appeared.
    Jai Mataji, thank you for insiring me.
