Devi Vanamali Mataji

Devi Vanamali Mataji

(From Vanamali ashram’s web site

Sri Matha Devi Vanamali and Brahmachari Mohan are two devotes of Lord Vanamali who have been the chosen instruments of the Lord in starting and running the Ashram. They seek to inculcate the ancient Vedic way of life. Sincere seekers who hope to improve their physical, mental and spiritual health  through meditation, yogasanas, talks on the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and devotional chanting and puja are welcome to contact the Ashram. The course of instruction offered by Vanamali Ashram is designed to follow the ancient rules of harmonious living as expounded by Lord Krishna to Arjuna in the
Srimad Bhagavad Gita.

In their early years of service Sri Mata Vanamali and Br. Mohan offered classes at one of the prisons for habituals in the town of Thrissure in Kerala and were abel to rehabilitate many of the inmates. Classes were also conducted at a Cancer Institute with great benefit. In recent years, when prompted by Lord Vanamali, Sri Mata Vanamali travels throughout the world offering courses in the blessed way of life of the Sanatana Dharama and sharing the wisdom of 
The Srimad Bhagavad Gita.”

In my opinion, her book “The Play of God” is a must read for every genuine spiritual seeker. She brings out the majesty of Krishna lila and his attributes in a lucid manner. This is one of the books along with “Autobiography of a yogi” that has left a deep impression on me. I tend to go back to this book and read again it and again and find myself inspired. I have also recently purchased “Sri Devi Lila” and looking forward to reading it up.  As someone said, “It is impossible not to love her books”. As her name suggests, she indeed personifies the garland on our Lord, spreading out his fragrance and sweetness.

    I had the good fortune to stay at the Vanamali ashram for about 2 months. It was a beautiful eperience.At that time I also had the good fortune to proof-read a portion of Mataji’s book on Lord Krishna. Brings back fond memories!

  2. Indeed you have been blessed. I desire to have her darshan someday. Her books are such a waft of fresh air.
    If you have’nt already checked out Mohan’s world at, I’d highly recommend it. Sri Mohan often visits Vanamali ashram and has a spiritual podcast where he interviews several prominent spiritual personalities.
    Also worth reading is about Sri Sunil Baba at and
