"Jaya Mehta’s dance was so incredibly filled with emotions and feelings for Lord Jagannath and Shri Krishna. Both spiritualist and so called non-spiritualists could all experience her transfer from this world to the spiritual world, experienced within her mind meditation. Jaya Mehta’s dance and especially facial expressions made us feel lucky to have a small place which enabled us to be close enough to see and experience the exchanges between her and Krishna that were being mirrored on her face. "

"...what is going for Jaya Mehta is the intensity with which she writes. There is an irrepressibility about her poems. They are not words; they are a symphony of emotions that demand to be expressed."
