"Faith is a gift of God and by faith, we are all made fully human and fully alive.
Jesus has said: 'Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.' (Matthew 17:20).
Jesus also said: 'For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.' (John 4:24).
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 Jn. 4:8).
Mother Teresa gave us a simple path:
“Silence is Prayer
Prayer is Faith
Faith is Love
Love is Service
The Fruit of Service is Peace”
And Tagore has added:
'I slept and dreamt that life was a joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was a joy.'
You have touched upon the basic essence of human life – faith and love. That is why your book has the power of transformation with your personal and inspiring content. Many people who have read your book have got back to me with great appreciation. Continue to spread faith and love. It brings joy to all."

"I have enjoyed reading your book ....it’s an act of love. You have brought out that greatness of a soul isn’t measured by wordy acquisitions but can lie within a simple housewife. It is heartening that such miracles happen in today’s age. I would believe that you desire that more people are benefitted by God’s grace and want to aid them in bringing the presence of Khatu Shyamji.
It’s a worthy tribute to Maa. "

" I was delighted to have your book: Faith & True Love: Journey to Inner Peace, depicting your love and affection towards your Maa and I must extend my kudos, felicitation, and congratulations to you for bringing up such a nice and heartfelt lovable tribute to the divine lady.
Your opening remarks convincingly dedicated to Maa, 'When I close my eyes and think of Maa, I visualize an ocean filled with calmness, soft waves of love gently washing away the harshness of life and a rainbow emerging with rays of truth, peace and hope' are wonderful. I am deeply impressed particularly with your concluding sentiments given in each of the episodes, e.g.
'…I thought she was GOD. I mean only God knows everything about everybody. That's how my journey with Maa began: 'Bol Shyam Baba ki Jai! Bol Khatu Naresh ki Jai' (Salutations to Shyam Baba!)... Faith has the power to move mountains'
'If someone plants thorns in your life, you make sure to sow flowers for them. Your goodness will always remain with you and so will your plantation of flowers' - MAA
'Do not worry, be happy, with time everything will be fine' - MAA
To sum up, it can conclusively be asserted that none can dare and afford to resemble a mother, and perhaps that's why Hasidic recites 'God could not be everywhere at once, so he gave each child a mother.' For me this book was an emotional and spiritual journey, I am looking forward to sharing its learnings with my family and near and dear ones.
I once again convey heartiest congratulations to you for creating such a heart- touching piece of writing.
With profound regards,
