Mother Maya

Mother Maya (Maya Tiwari) has been praised by the Parliament of the World's Religions for her quarter-century long extraordinary work and educational services in fostering inter-faith understanding and wellness. She is scheduled to receive the prestigious Dhanvantari International Award (to occur on February 27, 2011 in Pune, India) for her pioneering work and services in Ayurveda education. Having served more than a quarter century as a Vedic Monk belonging to India's prestigious Veda Vyasa lineage, Mother Maya has made the stunning decision to renounce her monastic title and spiritual moniker-Her Holiness, Sri Swami Mayatitananda-and, as she puts it, "walk a simpler and more accessible life in service of the populations in need."

She is the founder of the Wise Earth School of Ayurveda, Mother Om Mission, and the Living Ahimsa Foundation. Mother Maya's time-tested ability to inspire and create change in human behavior and understanding is a matter of flawless record from the past 27 years of her devout work in the US and around the world.

Mother Maya's is the embodiment of the unwavering peace. With a quarter century of extensive experience in spiritual healing behind her, Mother is a spiritual pioneer who serves humanity with her award-winning work by awakening the spirit of ahimsa-harmony in every person whose life she touches. In her extraordinary service to humanity, Mother has helped to nourish, nurture, and heal thousands of individuals and families, along with hundreds of communities. She works from the trenches of the inner cities to the halls of the privileged; transcending cultural and social barriers. Mother's quarter-century long grass roots revolutionary work in spiritual healing education serve scores of at-risk communities in Guyana, India, and USA.

Indeed, Mother Maya has been tirelessly guiding, and educating humanity with her charitable holistic work & education in inner-medicine healing through hundreds of venues around the world. She has also trained thousands of volunteer instructors to help educate and serve hundreds of communities around the world. In Her work and mission through Wise Earth School and Mother OM Mission, Mother Maya pioneered the Inner Medicine® health & spirituality programs based in Ayurveda; as well as the Living Ahimsa® work that is deeply based in the principle of inner harmony that honors the sanctity of all beings, all species, nature and her sacred resources. For more than two decades, Mother Maya has been addressing large audiences in conferences and other venues that generally range from 1,000 to 20,000 participants.

As a new voice for the ancient Hindu tradition, Mother Maya's universal path to inner harmony and non-hurting brings with it a renewed sense of joy, freedom, and stability for all-reconciling the myriad conflicts in our everyday lives, and bringing about a lasting sense of harmony for all people. A world-class spiritual teacher and author of many best-selling books on health, wellness and spirituality, her simplicity and potent spirit of ahimsa touch the heart of the vast range of people across the world. Her presence transcends economic and social barriers, as well as cultural and religious boundaries.

A proven spiritual orator, Mother's Keynote Presentation at the 2009 Parliament of World Religions alongside the Dalai Lama and other great men and women of faith had a dramatic impact on the consciousness of each of its participants. She was an honored member of the Convocation of Saints from India and on the Divine Feminine Panel. During the conference she eloquently addressed the theme of global reconciliation through the lens of her Living Ahimsa work. "By cultivating personal awareness of ahimsa we can find a common language that needs no words--a communion centered in the heart of oneness. If each one of us makes a commitment to inner harmony, we will surely succeed in achieving the ultimate goal of our human destiny--that of a spiritual freedom that unites us. Ultimately, it is the work of awareness within the individual person that will change the world for the better".
