To the editors:

This is a short response to Bonnie McGrath’s article on Gurumayi Chidvilasananda in the July 3rd issue of the Reader. Gurumayi opens each and every one of her talks as follows: “With great respect and love I welcome you all with all my heart . . . ”

If a person comes to see Gurumayi Chidvilasananda with only a portion of that same openness and sincerity an article such as Bonnie McGrath’s would not exist.
