Terence M. Zaleski, Mayor of the City Yonkers about Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Although, I had the opportunity to meet with you only once, it was a most memorable event and my family and I were touched by your graciousness, knowledge, and love. Clearly, your experiences with Mahatma Gandhi and others makes your presence even more significant – especially to a community which mirrors all of the problems and potential of America itself.
Again, my heartfelt welcome is extended to you and your family. It is a time of great restoration, revitalization, and transformation in this city and my certainty in its future has only been heightened by the auspiciousness of your presence.
