I attended a Vedanta retreat on ‘Sadhana Pancakam’ with Ammaji in Uttarkashi in June 2015 and was extremely impressed with the way she presented the material. Ammaji taught with clarity, ease, humour, warmth and most of all, deep insight and an excellent grasp of the material. The discourses literally set my mind on fire and blew away a huge portion of avidya (ignorance and illusion) from my inner vision. What also struck me is how beautifully Ammaji combines the often intellectual teachings of Vedanta with a lot of heart and the reality of being human. Her teachings, though containing the essence of the highest, ultimate truth, are relevant to the here and now and to the experience we have on this planet.
