My husband and I both loved this book. After eleven years with Ammachi, we recognized our path to the Mother in these pages. Ammachi is like a vast ocean holding many treasures and Savitri Bess has surfaced with pearls. Bess brings many years of spiritual practice, knowledge of the goddess tradition and her own travels in India to nuance her subject. She also offers other examples of Divine Motherhood to enlarge our understanding of who Ammachi can be for us in our time. Charming stories, well-written. EXCELLENT choice of quotations from Ammachi herself. Two thumbs up!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is a beautiful work, drawing from both eastern and western mysticism. It is full of moving accounts of how the journey to the Divine Mother manifests personally in the lives of each seeker, while at the same time being an archetypal process that transcends individual religions and cultures. Bess draws on the wealth of her many years both as a seeker of the Divine Mother and as a disciple of Ammachi, and provides many practical suggestions for other seekers. The candor with which she discusses her own experiences and challenges on the path, make this book quite readable.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
