There is simply no way to write about such a special human being in just a few paragraphs. After meeting (Shri Amritji) for the first time, a channel had been opened in my heart and a warm flow of energy kept passing through it. It has been more than 35 years now, but it is always there. The simple touch of Amritji's hand permanently opened my heart chakra.
