Description

Mother of All is the compelling story of one of the great mystics of our time. Mother Anasuya Devi of Jillellamudi was revered by millions in southern India for her home-spun wisdom, motherly love, and extraordinary spiritual powers.

Her profound yet enigmatic teachings powerfully challenged traditional patriarchal views and rejected the common Hindu belief that the world is an illusion. Married and the mother of three children, she was a living witness to her own core teachings that the earth is sacred and that spirituality comes from embracing life in full.

Author Richard Schiffman-one of only a handful of westerners who ventured to her remote village-gives a first person account of his life-transforming experience with the Mother.

REVIEWS

Mother Anasuya Devi (1923-1985) of Jillellamudi was a beloved spiritual leader in Southern India. Here, NPR Commentator Schiffman takes us to the village of the Mother and acquaints us with her life and teachings.
-Publishers Weekly

A magnificent portrayal of a very great human, contemporary and timeless, a uniquely unusual expression of God's being in the world.
-Joseph Chilton Pearce

You can never fall from my lap.
