100th Birth Anniversary of SRI SRI Daya Mata

From 2014 New Year's Message From Sri Sri Mrinalini Mata, sanghamata and president of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India/Self-Realization Fellowship:

“This year marks the hundredth birth anniversary of our beloved Sri Sri Daya Mata on January 31st. Her divine life has touched us all, and though her soul is free in the blissful realms of light and joy beyond this world, the love and care she showered on Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual family in both East and West is with us still. Gurudeva’s words, ‘Only love can take my place,’ found full expression in her and will always resonate in our consciousness through her beautiful example.”
