ImageSri Daya Mata, Elvis' Guiding Light, dies aged 96: Sri Daya Mata, who for more than five decades was the leader of one of the Self-Realization Fellowship, Los Angeles and an ardent advocate of the healing power of meditation, died November 30th at the group’s retreat for nuns in L.A. She was 96. From 1955 until her death, Sri Daya Mata was the society’s president and spiritual leader. She presided over an organization that now has more than 600 temples, centres and retreats in 60 countries, about half of them in the U.S.
In the mid-sixties Elvis spent time at the Self Realization Fellowship, and became a friend of Sri Daya Mata, whom he affectionately referred to as ‘Mother.' Elvis' friend Charlie Hodge said that when Elvis asked Daya Mata, "Why did God make me Elvis Presley," her response was to hand him some ancient manuscripts, saying that he might find the answer to his question within them.
In Elvis' mid-sixties period of uninspiring low-grade movies it is not surprising that he would be searching for some other deeper inspiration in his life.
Sri Daya Mata noted, "If we turn our consciousness within, in deep meditation, communing with God even a little bit every day, we begin gradually to experience that love which is our real nature. Feeling love within ourselves, it is very easy to give it to others."
