Julie Anderson, a former Playboy centerfold model, was an intimate companion of Adi Da Samraj from 1976 until 1992. During that time she was known as Kanya Samarpana Remembrance (also Swami Dama Kalottara Devi, and a number of other names). Her article, “The Real Practice of Guru-Devotion,” was published in the Free Daist Magazine in 1992.
Following up on her previous two interviews in which she shared details of life in the household of Adi Da Samraj, she describes her experiences surrounding the death of her mother, the near-death and then death of her guru, Adi Da, and other major life changes that could be thought of as ego deaths.
