MY FIRST TEACHER
My first teacher of meditation was my beloved grandmother who passed Away in 1999. She was a student of the great Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji, who gave her his ultimate blessings. She was also a student of the mystic Sant Baba Mihan Singh Ji. She taught me with so much love at a young age, and my mother lovingly taught me Gurmukhi script.
