Dear Beloved Satsang Sisters and Brothers,
Sri Siddhi Ma, a very close devotee of Maharaj-ji and considered by many to be a great yogini and saint in Her own right, left Her body on December 28, 2017. Since Maharaj-ji left His body in 1973, she has blessed all of his ashrams with Her compassionate guiding presence. For the last 44 years She has continued Maharaj-ji’s work of comforting souls and has made sure that His ashrams and temples are immaculate seats for His powerful divine presence. We bow at the Mother’s lotus feet, thanking Her for Her many blessings, both hidden and revealed.
“One evening Baba was staying overnight at the India Hotel [which was owned by Sri Siddhi Ma and her family]. It was a dark night and raining very heavily. At midnight Baba suddenly turned to Ma and asked her, ‘If I ask you to, can you leave this household forever at this very moment?’ Without a moment’s hesitation, Ma turned to Jivanti Ma, her friend and constant companion in devotion to Maharaj-ji, and asked her to get up and leave with her before either of them got caught by attachments.”
-From “I and My Father Are One” by Rabboo Joshi
Sri Siddhi Ma – Our Divine Mother
“Since the time that Maharaj-ji left His body, He started manifesting more and more through Siddhi Ma’s transmission. She conveyed the love that Maharaj-ji is; She was an extension of that unconditional love. We in the satsang will throw off our attachments and meet Her in Her true self, the Soul. For those that felt protected by Her, that protection will continue. We all remain under Her umbrella of Grace. It was clear to me that when Maharaj-ji left His body He was ever present. And in this same way, I feel joyful for this transition of Siddhi Ma. Although, Her name means Mother of Spiritual Power, for all of us, Her spiritual family, She is simply Ma.”
