Here, the relationship between nature, spirituality and the arts was a part of everyday life. Amrita's greatest teachers and inspiration was her late grandfather, a great Yogi and Shaivite priest in India, the last surviving temple Yogini of East India, Sashimani Mahari, her great Aunt saint and Yogini Ma Anandamayee and her Dance Gurus : her mother and Guru Chittaranjan Acharya.
