Compared to the 25 years spent with the family, the 25 years spent with the Ashram family have been very proud for her. She said what she found is everything that was left was nothing. She is a scientist. She also looks at the environment and spirituality from a scientific point of view. But she said thats nothing but what she has now that is important and most important.
