Maria Wirth is a German and came to India on a stop over (that’s at least what she thought) on her way to Australia after finishing her psychology studies at Hamburg University. She visited the Ardha Kumbha Mela in Haridwar in April 1980 where she met Sri Anandamayi Ma and Devaraha Baba, two renowned saints. With their blessing she continued to live in India and never went to Australia…
She dived into India’s spiritual tradition, sharing her insights with German readers through articles and books.
For long, she was convinced that every Indian knows and treasures his great heritage. However, when in recent years, she noticed that there seemed to be a concerted effort to prevent even Indians (and the world) from knowing how valuable this ancient Indian heritage is, she started to point out the unique value of Indian tradition also in English language. As these articles are not likely to be published in mainstream magazines, she shares them on this blog.

  2. Wonder that was India. I have read Ancient India and always considered it was the most modern society ever lived so intelligently and peacefully. Today I read your article and found a first person who shared my views so closely. I have circulated your article with my comments and video to my whole company 9 I will forward that mail to you too). In addition I will like to state that still the real `Hindu’ in any `Indian’ is not dead ; sure it is dormant. And it depends upon our leadership as you have shown in your article can wake it up and bring back the real Hindus (without the present Hindus with dogmas). Let us meet some time.

    Feel very much indebted to what all Maria writes. So true and so bold. We Hindus spend our lifetime here, but never express these matters as Maria who is here just for 35 years.

    One word to you, ThankYou. I’m sure there has to be some connection with your last birth and India/Hindu. Thank you for sharing correct details with the world.
