Mother of the Unseen World
The Mystery of Mother MeeraBook - 2017
Throughout history there have been rare individuals who transcend what most of us believe to be possible- enlightened beings who have access to experience and knowledge most of us do not have. The Indian-born avatar Mother Meera is such an individual. Born Kamala Reddy to an illiterate family, she was from a young age observed to be different from other children-she would sit in the forest for hours on end without moving or uttering a word and soon began attracting a following of devotees who would arrive to sit in her presence. Believed to be an embodiment of the Divine Feminine, she doesn?t preach, speak, or charge money, and is of no particular religion; instead, she gives light to those who seek her help. Known throughout the world for her abilities to undo "energetic knots" and to radically quicken the spiritual development of others, she has a center in Germany, where thousands of people visit her each month to receive her famous darshan, a silent blessing, and she has established a school in India for more than a thousand of the neediest students in the region. Writing with her approval and cooperation, Mark Matousek, a longtime follower, has crafted a deeply moving and insightful book that takes us as close as possible to this remarkable woman, and to the experience of enlightenment. Advance praise for Mother of the Unseen World " Mother of the Unseen World reads like a classic adventure novel, with one exception-much of the adventure goes on inside the reader as we follow Mark Matousek?s everyman journey from pain and doubt to discovery and awakening. I don?t know who I learned the most from-the wise and powerful Indian saint Mother Meera, or the very human, very real, and equally wise Mark Matousek. I could not put this book down." -Elizabeth Lesser, author of Broken Open and co-founder of Omega Institute "Mark Matousek brings us to the feet of Mother Meera in this transcendent, rapturous, astonishing book. He is at once an inspired teacher and the humblest of students. This is a divine book about a divine woman and one of the best books I?ve read on the need for the return of the divine feminine here and now." -Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues and In the Body of the World " Mother of the Unseen World is absolutely riveting. It?s clear and engaging-and at the same time, deeply searching and thought-provoking. Mark Matousek uses his own encounters with Mother Meera as a lens through which to examine her life, teachings, and influence in the world." -Gretchen Rubin , author of The Happiness Project
