Mother Kaulini made her joyous return to her beloved Gita Nagari this week.  We are so grateful for the amazing example of complete surrender to the order of the Spiritual Master that her life has shown. From 1974 to the present, she has served Guru,  Sri Sri Radha Damodar, Gita Nagari, and the devotees with complete dedication and love.  Many of her friends and well wishers have come to celebrate her life as she continues to teach us with her final transition to the Spiritual World.  We give thanks for such great personalities as Mother Kaulini who live the life we would aspire to live.  Please This email address is being protected from spambots.
