This 'biography' devours its own tail, the second it hungers for a definitive definition of Uma Inder. Such a being, who is being pulverised and reconstituted, will forever elude narrow definition, a final element of wilderness which can never be long-bounded by the constraints of the purely 'rational.' And yet, such a mirror, irrational though it may seem to the conditioned mind, is as open a window into pure being as it is to the ancient traditions which forged this Work. Uma, African-born, of Indian descent, was initiated by a renegade tantric master with whom she lived for a period of seven years in the Balinese jungle and seven more in the world at large in conditions and states which transcended the bonds of consensus reality. Uma is often initially unpalatable to the Western practitioner accustomed to spiritual padding. Time around Uma tends to upset, destabilise, and otherwise rearrange one's manufactured order.
