Sadvi Mathanandamayi

It became a spectacular incident in Shree Samsthanam when a woman became a vestal because of the divine’s purpose. Sharika (maiden name) was attracted towards the path of spirituality due to the influence of her family’s heritage. Being a Law Graduate, she was well-known for her musical talent in state level. It was purely the divine’s purpose that she chose to become an integral part of a devotional sect due to the influence exuded by the spiritual activities of Shree Gurudevadatta Samsthanam. This love for spirituality inspired her to lead a life of spiritual success.

It is the Holy Seer’s firm stance that there should be no gender bias regarding the path of devotion. If it is permissible for a man to become one with God through asceticism of life as well as self-discovery, then a woman should not be deprived of such bliss who, through self-inspiration and firm yearning, can achieve that. Accordingly, on 18-11-1997, at the Datta Sannidhi of Ganagapura, the Holy Seer ordained spiritual life to Sharika and named her as Shree Mathanandamayi. Sadhvi Mathanandamayi has become an avadhut vestal of the devotional sect.


The divine power, success, achievements, sacrifice, courage, spirituality, social thinking and humble service of his holiness have contributed a lot to the success of the Shree Samsthanam.
