May 2014 Inspirational Person of the Month

 Mehera Kleiner


In honor of Mother’s Day, the inspirational person for the month of May is Margaret’s friend, Mehera Kleiner, whom Margaret first met in India during the annual Amartithi Celebration when Mehera was eleven years old.

In 1991, Margaret had the privilege and honor in being Mehera’s counselor at the very first Youth Sahavas in Myrtle Beach. Since then, Mehera has graced Margaret’s presence by staying with her in her Redwood cabin in Lagunitas, California. During the 1990‘s, Mehera had the opportunity to study art in Greece. Originally from Southern California, Mehera and her family (husband Gary and daughter Pia) previously lived in India before relocating to the Ashville, North Carolina area.

Mehera is an inspiration in every possible way – as an Artist, a compassionate mother, and a friend. Mehera is always quick to share her laughter and bright spirit as well as her gratitude for everything. She is loving and kind to everyone who have been blessed to have made her acquaintance and a true friend for life.
