Om Namo Narayanaya!
I have some unpleasant news for you.
Our beloved and rev. Dr. Devki Kutty Mataji attained samadhi yesterday
evening at 7.30 pm. She suffered from a brief illness; she had a cardiac
arrest on the 3rd of August at her home in Sivananda Ashram, Rishikesh.
She was revived from it and was immediately shifted to the ICCU in the
Himalayan Institute at Dehradun. She was supported on Respirator but her
condition took a bad turn and she went into irreversible septicemia
followed by multi organ failure.
I request your kind self to pray God to rest her soul in peace.
With regards and pranams,
Dr Anil Suchak.

Om Namo Bhagavate Sivanandaya
Revered and Dear "Dr. Mataji" Sri Swami Sivananda Hridayananda Mataji
attainded the feet of Gurudev as it was her most cherrished wish till
last moment. All the time looking at Gurudev's picture with conviction
beloved Gurudev will come and take her. She was very very peaceful.
All felt that peaceful vibrations in the entire atmosphere.
The Divine Life Society The Hague Branch, Disciples and Friends would
kindly like to inform you that on Sunday, 06 August 2000, at 00.00 hours
in Shiva Kripa, H. H. Swami Sivananda Hridayananda 'Mataji' peacefully
passed into another plane of consciousness (Maha Samadhi). Mataji's life
was dedicated to giving and giving and giving as she wrote herself in one
of her letters to her dear Gurudev, Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj.
"Dearest Lord, allow me to pour my flaming devotion at thy lotus feet. I
cannot think of anything now. I am not concerned of what you think of
anything now. I am not concerned of what you think of me even, it doesn't
worry me whether I am worthy or not and it is immaterial whether I get
anything in return from thee. Just allow me to give and give and give. I
cannot curb this desire to pour out this inexhaustible devotion for thee
without any reservation. Allow me to enjoy the ecstasy of giving. Oh, this
is the most wonderful state of devotion. I have never known this before.
Here is my heart at thy feet. I offer it to thee with all its devotion,
faith, reverence and hope. Do whatever you like with it".
"Sivananda My God" by - H.H. Swami Sivananda Hridayananda 'Mataji'-
The last few years of her life in this plane of consciousness she
dedicated to preparing herself for her "journey back to the source". She
had on many occasions said to her intimate disciples that her Gurudev
would wait for her on the other side. He had himself promised her this.
Mataji was a great saint and example to those who knew her best. Her
loving simplicity opened up everybody's heart. She will always be with us
and guide us on our spiritual journeys.
