Maria Wirth

Maria Wirth is a German writer. She came to India on a stopover on her way to Australia after finishing her psychology studies at Hamburg University. She visited the Ardha Kumbha Mela in Haridwar in April 1980 where she met Sri Anandamayi Ma and Devaraha Baba, two renowned saints. She dove into India’s spiritual tradition, which greatly impressed her. She continued to live in India sharing her insights with German readers through articles and books, and never made it to Australia. For the past ten years or so, she has also written in English. Her English articles (and also some Hindi and Marathi translations) are on her blog:
