"I tell you one thing. If you want peace of mind, do not find fault with others. Rather learn to see your own faults. Learn to make the whole world your own. No one is a stranger, my child; this whole world is your own." ~ Sarada Devi
29 December 1853 – 21 July 1920 Was the spiritual-wife and spiritual nineteenth-century Hindu mystic and saint. Sarada Devi is also reverentially addressed as the Holy Mother (Sri Sri Maa ) by the followers of the Sri Ramakrishna monastic order.
Sri Sarada Devi or Sri Sri Maa is one of the notable woman saints and mystics of the nineteenth century. She paved the way for the future generation of women to take up monasticity as the means and end of life. In fact the Sri Sarada Math and Ramakrishna Sarada Mission situated at Dakshineshwar is based on the ideals and life of Sri Sri Maa. Sri Sarada Devi played an important role in the growth of the Ramakrishna Movement.
Sri Sarada Devi was born in Joyrambati. At the age of five she was betrothed to Sri Ramakrishna, whom she joined at Dakshineswar Kali temple when she was in her late teens. According to her biographers, both lived lives of unbroken continence, showing the ideals of a householder and of the monastic ways of life.
After Sri Ramakrishna's death, Maa Sarada Devi stayed most of the time either at Joyrambati or at the Udbodhan office, Calcutta. The disciples of Sri Ramakrishna regarded her as their own mother, and after their guru's death looked to her for advice and encouragement. The followers of the Ramakrishna movement and a large section of devotees across the world worship Sri Sri Maa Sarada Devi as an incarnationof the Adi Parashakti or the Divine Mother.
Sister Nivedita - born Margaret Elizabeth Noble (1867-1911) was an Irish teacher, author, social activist, school founder and disciple of Swami Vivekananda. She spent her childhood and early youth in Ireland. From her father, a college professor, she learned the ideal of service to mankind as the true service to God. She worked as a school teacher and later also opened a school.
Authors Note: Sri Ramakrishna gradually led Sarada Devi in the spiritual path and when he died at an early age, she became the chalice where Sri Ramakrishna had transferred his wisdom. He also did a transmission of knowledge to Swami Vivekandanda. Sri Ramakrishna was a truly extraodinary master of many spiritualpaths - much in the tradition of Sri Ananda Mayi Ma.
