Satguru Rama Mata with Mother Teresa

If we surrender our ego to the Divine, to the satguru, to Krishna or Rama or Devi, then we are reborn as our true selves. When we shed the outer layer, then we can connect with the Divine and with others, all sentient beings. Then we feel love through the divine interconnectedness of everyone and every thing.

As Amma says, “Love is our true essence. You can only feel love by expressing it. The more you give, the more your heart is filled. Love is a never ending stream. Real love is the complete absence of any negative feelings towards anyone. Be like the honeybee who gathers only nectar wherever it goes. Seek the goodness that is found in everyone.

When love overflows and is expressed through every word & deed, we call it compassion. That is the goal of religion. Love is the only medicine that can heal the wounds of the world. If we have love and compassion in our hearts, then we will wholeheartedly serve those who suffer from lack of food, clothing and shelter. May your thoughts, words and actions arise from love. Love one another without any expectations. Then,there is no need to go anywhere in search of heaven.”

About Satyabhama Ashley-Farrand

Satyabhama met Satguru Sant Keshavadas in December 1980 at his Temple of Cosmic Religion in Washington, DC. She also met Thomas Ashley-Farrand/Namadeva Acharya (1940-2010) the same evening, and a year and a week later they were married by Satgurus Sant Keshavadas and Rama Mata. Satyabhama studied with Sant Keshavadas and Rama Mata and with Namadeva for the next 3 decades. She became a Vedic priest in her own right in the mid-1980s and worked with Namadeva Acharya in performing and teaching ancient mantra techniques and spiritual practices. In 2008 and 2009, like Namadeva Acharya, she received guru diksha to be a guru from Satguru Rama Mata, Sadguru Sant Keshavadas' widow, to whom he passed the lineage in 1997. When Namadeva Acharya discovered that his death was imminent, he told Satyabhama that he wanted her to continue their mission of teaching the dharma, and he gave her a powerful initiation to enable her to teach his workshops with his spiritual energy. Since then, she has continued to travel and teach and also to manage the Gayatri Temple in Beaverton, Oregon, with the encouragement of Satguru Rama Mata and her family. Satyabhama has a B.A. from New York University and a Law Degree from Southwestern School of Law. Dedicated to serving God through humanity, she is a certified mediator and maintained a private law practice from 1981-2007. Prior to her law practice, Satyabhama worked to further the status of women through her involvement with the National Organization for Women and the National Women's Political Caucus. In 2004, Satyabhama assumed management of Saraswati Publications, LLC and Sanatana Dharma Satsang, Inc., a 501(c)3 religious organization. She is committed to making the world a better place in which Divine Law becomes the law of life.
