Product description


Martin Goodman, the author of this book, is a former devotee of Mother Meera whose life was profoundly affected by his time with this Indian mystic. This is his journey of awakening. He describes his teacher with respectful admiration and tells the story of her early life in India and the path that has brought her to Germany. For some people she has become a deity, the personification of the feminine divine. From his experiences Martin has come to question the idea that she might be infallible, but reveals clearly the power and compassion of one of the greatest living mystics of our time.

From the Author

Looking back....
As 1999 passes and the furore that surrounded the publication of this book fades away, how do I look back on it all?

I'm glad I don't have to go through the process of distilling so much phenomenal experience once again, but pleased with the way the book came out. I learned a tremendous amount in my own passage through devotion, and am pleased to have heard from so many people who the book has helped. Devotion to a human goddess figure takes westerners way beyond the norms of their lives, and I do reckon this book gives a helping hand to anyone who connects with such a devotional path in any way. I reckon it's a gentle and beautiful book, and am happy with that. It offers a tremendous amount of new information but never tries to answer all the questions it poses .... everyone is entitled to their own level of mystery, and not all mysteries need to be unravelled. If you choose to read this book, thanks for the attention you will be giving to it. It's much appreciated.
