Spiritual leader dies at 86 

Sri Mrinalini Mata, president and spiritual leader of the Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (SRF/YSS), passed away August 3 in Los Angeles. She was 86 years old.

“The inspiration of Sri Mrinalini Mata’s life will leave an enduring imprint on all who have had the good fortune to come in contact with her,” says Brother Achalananda, vice president of SRF.

Today, SRF/YSS has more than 800 temples, centers and retreats in more than 60 countries.

“The one wish in my heart, my deep prayer,” Sri Mata once said, “is to bring to you — and to leave in your hearts, minds, and souls — a deeper longing for God, and a deeper awareness of the reality of His presence, the nearness to each one of us of that Infinite Being.”
