Before I came to Adi Da in my early twenties I visited Irina Tweedie many afternoons in her living room in Willesden Green, London. The first day I went she asked me in front of the others present, ‘why have you come to see me?’ I answered ‘Because I am suffering’. She went into an ecstasy and said ‘what a glorious state to be in’.
Another time she said ‘if you come to see me more often I will infect you with my bliss.’
She was an incredible beautiful, radiant loving being who poured love on me. She lived and breathed God. When Adi Da’s Dawn Horse Testament came out I gave her a copy. She read it during the night, all night for three night’s running. By this time I had accepted Adi Da as my spiritual master. ‘He is a Great Master’ she said to me.
I miss her deeply.
