A delightful and high-quality photographic book with a large text section by the renowned photographer and writer Richard Lannoy. Drawing extensively on Anandamayi Ma’s own words and advice to followers, the author reveals a personality at once both breathtakingly simple and an enigma of fathomless complexity.
The author writes: “Preferably, the face of the holy, even in a photograph, should be depicted like an icon, transubstantiated. Whereas…. I would portray the highest attainable state of grace not as a quasi-divine being but as someone who is nothing special.”
