About the author

Sri Daya Mata (1914-2010) was one of the foremost disciples of Paramahansa Yogananda. A true "Mother of Compassion," as her name signifies, she inspired those of all faiths and from all walks of life with the wisdom and great love of God conveyed through her talks, writings, and recordings. She met Paramahansaji in 1931 when he lectured in her hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah; and entered his ashram as a renunciant shortly thereafter. During the more than twenty years that she was privileged to receive Paramahansaji’s spiritual guidance and instruction, he personally prepared her to carry on his worldwide work after his passing. As president and spiritual head of Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India for more than fifty-five years (from 1955 until her passing in 2010), she was a guiding force of inspiration, wisdom, and compassion for SRF/YSS monastics and members worldwide.
