Revered Mataji, Mata Bhagawati Devi Sharma
Born on September 1926, in a
famous priestly family, Mata Bhagwati Devi (Vandaniya Mataji), was
extraordinary in her own way and unlike other children, was not interested
in regular childhood activities such as playing, etc. Instead, she was more
interested in worshipping God. She spent most of her time in singing
devotional songs. Her favorite pastime was to make the offering of the Bilva
tree leaves at the idol of Lord Shiva, and writing "OM NAMAH SHIVAYA".
During the early stages of her education, she studied Bhagwat Gita, and
Ram Charit Manas. After her marriage to Pt. Shriram Sharma Acharya (Gurudev),
Mataji took over the responsibility of looking after visitors and guests.
She willingly donated all her personal jewelry, which she received at her
wedding, to Gurudeva's Yug Nirman Yojna (mission for creation of a new Era),
for establishment of Gayatri Tapobhoomi at Mathura. This is the place where
a grand 1008 kundiya Gayatri Mahayagna took place in 1958.
