EASWARAMMA, THE CHOSEN MOTHER by Prof. N. Kasturi
Baba tells us that before His birth He “decided who should be my mother.” What was it like to be transformed from a poor, illiterate, ordinary Indian housewife, living in fear and superstition, into the mother of the Avatar? Kasturi provides a spiritually heightening and emotionally absorbing description of Easwaramma’s journey of consciousness, piety, humor and love. Like all spiritual aspirants, she had to journey along the inner path that leads to the masater. But, in the end, she “was shaped into a genuine saint” and she merged into Sai. This is an invaluable, very moving portrait with numerous insights into Baba’s childhood and youth.
