She has traveled widely in India Western Europe and the United Kingdom.

Her inherited spiritual associations, her personal contacts with great religious mystics thinkers and writers of East and West and coming under the potent influence of the Great Guru Maha Yogar Swamigal of Columbuturai but for whose benediction this book could not have been written- these enabled her to pursue relentlessly the search into the mystic fountains of the Saiva Siddhanta Seera. In this task she was guided by well known philosophers and scholars like Professor K. Subramaniam Pillai, Professor K. Swaminathan, Professor T. P. Meenakshisundaram.

Saint Manivacagar's Tiruvacagam tugs at our heart strings long after we close The Testimony of Love for so indelible is her expression of the saint's immortal conquest of the Beloved the Lord of Thillai. Like wise it bodies forth in matchless fervour, the eternal quest of Man.
