From Sakina Sati

For several days now, I have been looking for the right words to express my feelings with about Annapurna's passing. I realize those elusive words must not exist after all, since I am still speechless. As one of the first generation of satsang children, Annapurna was a spiritual auntie to me. I have more memories of her loving presence than I can sort through, and each seems so perfect and beautiful as to be unrecountable. As I read through the stories here, I realize how distinct my perception is of Annapurna... one of a sweet, humble, maternal figure feeding me licorice bark, listening to music in her room, talking about daily things, making dinners of salad and tea. I will never forget her grand inner beauty or the tiniest of her details. She has definately touched and changed me for the better and I cherish the lessons I have learned from her loving nature. Annapurna, I wish I had the proper words to honor you with, but these words seem ridiculous and frail, strung together like beads on a tenuous thread, the proverbial bridge of hair over the chasm of fire, so instead I offer you my open heart to read prayers from. Om Namah Shivayah. Jai Jai Jai Kali Ma.

With boundless love,
Sakina Sati

As Annapurna's hair designer for the last 8 years, I always looked forward to our time together. She was a special being to me, and we had fun conversations running the gamut about our lives and what was important now, now and now. Knowing she is now in Pure Positive Energy is a great delight, and I will miss her presence in my salon. Blessings Annapurna,
Always, Max
