Jasper writing - photo reverse.
Jaspers' valediction for Mataji, scribbled on the reverse of her black and white photo.
"Mataji (Mata Dharma Dasi.)
"All her sadhu life in burning gound,
Kali incarnate. Varanasi! Yogi!
Stark naked, covered in ashes. Toyboy teenage
Romany in Virginia water. Drank anyone
under the table. Healing power.
Died 10th August 1974. Aged 55. "I'm leaving all soon".
"Climbed out of a high window night before her
wedding to join the sadhus.
A daughter dumped on her mother.
"Stand up to your men. Don't take shit from your men.
No fucking bullshit. You think your women are just
something to fuck and make meals for you." A lot of men couldn't take her even sadhus.
