The whole concept of your guru being like a parent has its origins in things such as classical music or higher learning where you spend years and years under the care and tutelage of a master. At that point, referring to them as "Guru" or some other higher term is appropriate. And even then, you'll hear musicians refer to their "Gurujis" not their "papa" and "ma"
No one forces these people to call her Ma.......if you have proof that they are being forced then show it to us.....
...If the kids don't have a problem with it and she doesn't have a problem with it....who are we to say otherwise?
I am amazed at her ability to connect so well with the kids........shows how loving she is all these kids referring ot her as "ma"...........
