About Mary Cook

I feel tremendous gratitude for a very blessed life, particularly in my connection with the Kriya Yoga Master’s Lineage. As a result of my friendship, love and connection with my mentor Robert Raymer, known affectionately as Baba, who was a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, I am gifted with the ability to initiate truth seekers into the sacred lineage of Kriya Yoga. Before Baba transitioned from this world to his next, he passed his mantle to me.

In 1994 Master Paramahansa Yogananda appeared standing in front of me, with Mahavatar Babaji floating in the background. In that moment a bolt of lightning came from above, struck me and awakened the kundalini shakti in my body.  A shift in consciousness took place that created an indescribable love and devotion for God. For two years after my awakening, I stayed in my home in the country alone and allowed the unfolding of what was a remarkable experience. So many gifts and abilities miraculously emerged from the depths of my being. Great Masters visited me and with their grace I was taught many things. My past was revealed to me and everything made sense to me. During this period my body would literally lift off the ground and, somewhat jokingly, I contemplated putting rocks in my pockets to keep myself from floating heavenward.

My consciousness shifted from limited body consciousness with all the goodies of an ego personality, to Soul consciousness, then to Self-Realization, God-Realization. Out of this awakening a deep and abiding awareness of pure consciousness, pure love, evolved.

You see, before my awakening I lived a very full and active life in the world. I was blessed to be able to live a quiet life in the country, and I enjoyed traveling and exploring life.

Now, as a modern day Mystic, I share the blessings I have received, and my greatest blessing is to awaken others into Higher Consciousness.
