The soul of the magnificent Dadi Janki has left her body at 104 years of age. She departed on March 27 at 2 am in Mt Abu, India. She leaves behind hundreds of thousands who felt she was their true friend. Anyone who had been in a room with her would have experienced her booming voice of authority ringing out with 3 “om shantis”.
For over 80 years she asked audiences on all continents to consider 3 questions: “Who am I?” “Who do I belong to?” and “What is the task of this time?” You are a soul. You belong to God. And this is the time of world transformation.
She was a tireless server. From her early days in what is now Pakistan to a few months before her passing, she gave every moment to service, outpacing those who were decades younger. She spoke to princes, prime ministers and those leading ordinary lives as if they were her brothers and sisters, urging them to make their lives worthwhile.
She was a spiritual giant, who kept a lamp of hope lit for humanity. She showed us how to live with love and ultimately how to die with dignity.
