This was the best means for her. But it would not benefit you if you imitate her. You may jhuleal an life you have enough religious merit to your credit contemplate I am the Existence Knowledge Bliss Absolute I am he Supreme Brahman I am the supreme Bliss I am instructing in the form of disciples Aha wonderful what a joy These are all different forms of mine.
