Thoughts from Sri Daya Mata
Sri Daya Mata was a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda and the former president of the Self Realization Fellowship. I had the great fortune to meet her on a several of occasion and feel the uplifting power of her divine presence. She dedicated her life to loving and serving God and Guru. When we read the words of a realized being, something happens. There is power in their words to awaken our hearts. The following is taken from her book, Enter the Quiet Heart, on page 3.
What tremendous love, what soothing peace, what intoxicating joy are waiting for you in the calm depths of your being! That is where the Divine is to be found.
When we call to God from the quiet center of the heart—with simple, sincere yearning to know Him and feel His love — unfailingly we draw His response. That sweet presence of the Divine Beloved becomes our supreme Reality. It brings complete fulfillment. It transforms our lives.
