of each month
In addition to being an author, I am a licensed transpersonal psychologist and an ordained yogic minister, or Acharya. I teach traditional yogic meditation, philosophy and the ancient wisdom teachings of yoga. I also am an ERYT 500 yoga teacher and a yogic therapist.
I began my spiritual journey in 1969 when I took diiksha, or initiation into yogic meditation practices. From those practices unfolded profound experiences of divine presence and love, manifesting through the inner Guru. Those deep and transforming experiences over the years have formed a body of inner knowledge and teachings that have inspired me to attempt to share with others as best I am able, the incredible love and guidance that I have found awaits in the heart of yoga.
From the depths of these beautiful experiences of Divine presence and the inner guidance I receive from my Guru, I have begun to teach and have authored a number of books on spiritual life, the latest being on yogic practices for living in the world. It explores the first two limbs of Asthanga Yoga, Yama and Niyama, giving an in depth view of how to transform attitudes, beliefs and actions to build a life that brings happiness and is in harmony with spirit. This book gives practical teachings that enable students to bring their yoga off of the mat and into their lives.
Currently I spend my time giving Satsanga’s or ‘Baba talks’, teaching the ancient wisdom of yoga, publishing books of the inner teachings I receive, and giving retreats and seminars through Ananda Guru Kula, a non-profit organization that I founded. I am a psychologist in private practice and reside with my family in our ashram community in the northern San Francisco Bay Area.
How These Writings Came to Be
Maetreyii Ma has been a student of Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, affectionately known as Baba, since 1969, at which time she took diiksha and began to do meditation practices. In 1970 she began to have profound mystical experiences of the Divine and experience the inner presence of her Guru. Baba's inner presence brought deep experience of the endless love and compassion of the Divine, perfect beauty and wisdom, and the unconditional love and overflowing grace of the Satguru.
He began to teach her yogic wisdom on the inner planes. After some months of this inner experience of Guru's teachings, he guided her to come to India to be near to him in his physical form.
She lived for close to one year sitting at the feet of Guru, receiving his teachings twice a day in Darshan and also continuing to receive them internally in her meditations from the inner form of Guru. At that time she experienced the oneness of the inner and the outer Guru, the magnificent unity of all life embodied in the Guru and his endless knowledge and love beyond time and space. She experienced many miracles in Baba's physical presence. He seemed to know her every thought. The inner experience of guru and the outer experience were one flow of endless compassion, unconditional love, and great wisdom.
She continued to receive the inner love, care and guidance of Guru for many years, teaching her yogic knowledge and guiding her in her spiritual life. Then in 1990, just prior to the physical departure of Guru, again a series of mystical experiences began to unfold. During this time the inner manifestation of Baba showed her he would be soon leaving from the physical world. When a few months later he left his physical body he then guided her that she was to begin to share with others the teachings and guidance that had thus far been given all those years only for her, through this inner form.
It is through the grace of our spiritual master Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, or Ba'ba', as he is affectionately called, that a flow of inner teachings has emerged for Maetreyii Ma, which get expressed in intuitively received, or channeled, talks. These talks have been transcribed and the teaching's contained in this web site are samples of a large collection of these writings, which cover many topics. Although our guru, Baba, is no longer in physical form, his spiritual presence continues and is the source of inspiration for the intuitive talks given through Maetreyii Ma. These teachings are freely offered as a service.
The intuitively recieved 'Baba talks' have been transcribed and compiled in service to all people and our beloved Guru Deva. We find these teaching's deeply inspiring and make them available at Satsangas, retreats and programs, in private sessions, books, on this web site, and in some CD's and DVD's.
