After graduating from college, Marsha Low left home to spend eighteen years as an

Ananda Marga yogic nun, living in countries throughout the Middle and Far East,

Australasia, and Eastern Europe. After undergoing training with the organization,

she taught meditation and yoga, opened schools, and performed social work and

relief projects.

Often skirting the law to further her organization's mission and raise money for it,

she came face to face with-among other things-gun-toting border guards in

Cyprus, the Russian KGB, and misunderstanding and rejection as a female spiritual

teacher in the Middle East. In India, she faced harassment from government officials

intent upon hunting down foreign members of her blacklisted organization.

In The Orange Robe: My Eighteen Years as a Yogic Nun, the author also relates

incidents from her family life growing up, her dreams, and the issues that she had to

deal with upon returning to ordinary life. From her first encounter with the group to

her eventual disillusionment with it and the reconciliation with her family,The

Orange Robe chronicles the dangers, triumphs, misadventures, and heartaches she

experienced on her journey. It also provides a unique window into the behavior and

psychology of Ananda Marga and its founder, Shrii Shrii Anandamurti.
