What is Maa or Mataji?
Maa, or Mataji, is a revered title used to show affection and respect towards an older woman, or a spiritual leader or teacher. It can also be used to refer to the concept of the Divine Mother, or the supreme goddess. In some yogic and meditative traditions, Mataji is also used to refer to the divine energy that resides within all beings. This usage is based on the belief that we are all connected to the Divine Mother and thus have access to her power and wisdom.
“Mataji” can also be used to refer to the goddesses Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Durga. Mata is also a Hindi word meaning “land”, “country” or “nation”. Hence “Mataji” can also refer to the Motherland or India. No matter how you use the word, it carries with it a deep sense of love, reverence, and gratitude
