Ananda Tara Shan (1946-2002) is the Motherfounder of the Theosophical Fellowship and Heart Flow Worldwide. She is a Theosophical teacher and a disciple of the Lord Maitreya, the Bodisattwa of the Earth. From his heart she received the Teaching, Maitreya - theosophy, that carries the impulse for the New Age - the Age of Maitreya. His energy can be felt in the work of Ananda: through her writings, teaching, meditations, Church Services, the whole organisation together with its Churches, especially The Church of Maitreya for all faith that is built upon his Light.
"Ananda's interest in spiritual matters was present from an early age, but became consciously directed in 1973 when she became a pupil of a teacher of meditation and healing. Ananda learned much from this teacher, and apart from the instruction she received, her own inner spiritual understanding and knowledge was stimulated and began to become more conscious in her own mind (Our Master and Our Teacher, 1995).
Ananda Tara Shan accepted the opportunity she was given to work directly with the Lord Maitreya as his disciple. All through out her life her love for Lord Maitreya and the Hierarchy could be felt as well as the presence of the Masters of the Hierarchy who worked though her to give light to the Earth and humanity.
"Through the teaching given out by our teacher, Ananda Tara Shan, we can feel the Wisdom of the Ages and be uplifted into the great love poured out by her Master, the Lord Maitreya" (Our Master and Our Teacher, 1995).
