Ma Jaya dedicated “Bones and Ash” to her first chela Billy who succumbed to leukemia after more than a decade of fighting. Like any mother who lost her child, Ma Jaya grieved. Billy had always urged Ma Jaya to write and in her grief she began a series of notebooks whose words inspired “Bones and Ash.” “Bones and Ash” is a spiritual journey, comfort for all who struggle with pain from any source. While Billy (also known as Dr. Thomas Byrom) was alive, he and Ma Jaya spoke daily. After his passing, Ma Jaya continued these conversations, writing some 89 journals in all. One of the great beauties of living with Ma Jaya has always been the wealth she shares with her students. In the few pieces included in “Bones and Ash” you get a taste of the ocean of wisdom her students are emerged in daily. You share her wisdom. Your heart will be touched by the boundless love. No matter how you come to this book, you will leave it a different person, someone who has seen a naked heart. Like any moment spent in Ma Jaya’s company, the topics covered are diverse. She speaks of Christ and then the ways your ego seeks to trap you. She writes of the sacred Ganges River and then about living in the moment, and goes on to describe the joy of service. You are certain to be rewarded by the time spent reading the poems in “Bones and Ash.” –
