From the Back Cover: "Sri Karunamayi is a modern Indian miracle, a human who lives divinely, a woman whose words and actions embody the blessing power of the Mother of the Universe. This enlightening book introduces one of hte great saints of our time, and transports us into the living presence of limitless spirit." --Linda Johnsen, Author, "Daughters of the Goddess: The Women Saints of India" From this Book: "On one Sankranti, varieties of food had been made to offer to God. Meanwhile, Sri Vijayeswari Devi [Sri Karunamayi] realized that a few poor harijans who had come had eaten no food for the past two days. Therefore, she carried the food which was in a big vessel, ready for worship, and distributed it among those people. Then she addressed her grandmother and said, 'Grandma, today you have done a very good thing. This is how the food so nicely prepared by you has been accepted by the Lord.'"
