A brief biography of shri shri Maiyaji Generally people are very inquisitive to know about the life story of great people along with their spiritual discourses. Most of the devotees have been fortunate to have holy glimpse (darshanas) of ‘H. H. Maiyaji’ but are unaware of her ascetical life. Like the depth of the sea cannot be measured, the unexplainable cannot be explained, the unlimited one cannot be bound in limits, similarly, the true persona of ‘Maiyaji’ cannot be limited by penning it down in few words, it’s just impossible. Actually, the truth is that a child can never ever describe its mother, unless the mother lets herself make explainable or blesses for so, nobody can deeply understand her.
‘Maiyaji’ loves to be in solitude (Ekant Priya), therefore nobody knows who SHE is? What SHE is? At what stage of equanimous She is residing? This is impossible to understand. Great people like HER deliver their message through their behaviour or life. Often when ‘Maiyaji’ used to sit with ashram’s sadhikas (devotees) to solve their spiritual questions, the sadhikas wrote down the conversations between them and ‘Maiyaji’ in their diary for their reference. Using those conversations as base, we got to know the valuable insights of ‘Maiyaji’s’ life which has been compiled in brief to satisfy the curiosity of spiritual seekers. This book focuses light on maa’s divine qualities like sacrifice, faithfulness, devotion modesty, self control, kindness, service motive, selfless deeds, being least bothered about vices and virtues coming across, simplicity, being egoless, sympathetic, etc.If by chance there remains any flaw in presenting the “Divine Swaroop” of ‘Maiyaji’ in front of the world, god may forgive us for that. May the divine grace of ‘Maiyaji’ keep flowing and showering on us.
The Depth Of Wisdom 'ज्ञान की गहराई'

Devotee: Maa! What is ‘sadhana’?
Pujya Maiyaji : By doing which, the thoughts, chitta, mind goes upwards, gets peaceful, enhances devotion for god that is called ‘sadhna’, there is one story in ‘vedonla’ that just like a bird who is surrounded by sea from all sides when gets tired by flying nonstop, it takes shelter on some boat, some way our senses in the disguise of that bird gets tired by roaming here and there the whole time, when get tired, come and take shelter in its soul. After working for the whole day, one gets tired and go within you self and get one with him, like the birds after taking rest on the boat again starts flying, same way our senses after taking some rest again room here and there
BRINGING BACK OUR ROAMING VRATTI (Senses) TO THAT ONE SUPREME BEING IS CALLED “SADHANA”
