Mother Meera Born in Chandepalle a small village in Nalgonda district of Andhra Pradesh, India, she had her first samādhi, a state of complete spiritual absorption, at the age of six, which lasted for a whole day.[2] When she was 12 her uncle Bulgur Venkat Reddy met her for the first time, and immediately recognised in her the girl of his visions. He became convinced that she is the Divine Mother and started to take care of her, allowing her to unfold her inner experiences. Her parents Antamma and Veera Reddy live in Madanapalle, Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh[3]

In 1974, Reddy brought Mother Meera to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Puducherry, India, of which he was a member.[4] There she first met Westerners and started to give Darshan.

Previously, in the early 1990s, she gave Darshan in a house in the town of Thalheim, some 5 km northwest of Hadamar in Germany. She also visits the United States on a regular basis (see links below).

Sathya Sai Baba Sathya Sai Baba (born as Sathya Narayana Raju; 23 November 1926 - 24 April 2011) was an Indian guru, and philanthropist. He claimed to be the reincarnation of Sai Baba of Shirdi. Sai Baba's materialisations of vibhuti (holy ash) and other small objects such as rings, necklaces, and watches, along with reports of miraculous healings, resurrections, clairvoyance, bilocation, and alleged omnipotence and omniscience, were a source of both fame and controversy.
