Radha Ma




In response to various requests for information about Radha Ma, it has been reported that she has now succumbed in a Chennai Hospital from burns after being rushed there from Tiruvannamalai, after what is reported in the local Tamil papers, to have been an attempt at self-immolation.






One hopes that her devotees and followers find solace in thoughts of Arunachala and receive relief from the shock they must be experiencing from the unexpected and tragic death of their Guru.

Yes, why? It is so sad. Can someone who went for the ceremonies, please write about it. It will give me some closure.

It is no game, as far as her body was brought back yesterday and she was interred into her Samadhi last night amidst a beautiful and long ceremony. Radha Ma Ki Jai!

I am surprised that there is not more information about what actually happened. I only found out about this a few days ago and was, of course, both shocked and saddened. Why did Radha Ma do this to herself? This is what I would like to know. I met her around 5 years ago and we really clicked. I had a private interview with her and appreciated her sweetness and blissful shakti. What happened? Is there any possibility of foul play being covered up? This just makes zero sense to me.

Dear Friend:

As you spent time previously with Radha Ma, and have a loving connection with her, I can understand how upsetting it must be to learn about what happened.

However there has been absolutely NO QUESTION of foul play. She did in fact take her own life by self immolation.

I also met Radha Ma on a number of occasions and always enjoyed the time I spent with her. She was touched by Grace.

From what I understand, in the case of spiritual Grace, it can go up and it also can go down. In this regard, perhaps towards the end of her life she was experiencing some difficulties with her mental condition.

All we can do is to remember with love and gratitude the sweetness and shakti she shared so generously with the many people that met and spent time with her.
