"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other." - Mother Teresa.

In this article, we will have a glimpse of Numerology involved in Mother Teresa's name and her date of birth. We will also understand how numbers played important role in all of her life events. We will consider the Vedic Numerology System and Pythagoras Numerology System along with Nameology to understand Mother Teresa's life events.

Mother Teresa was born on 26th August 1910 at Macedonia. When we add her date of birth, we get the following numbers:

Her total birth date = 26-8-1910 = 2+6+8+1+9+1+0 = 27 = 2+7 = 9.
Only date = 26 = 2+6 = 8.

If we add entire date of birth, we get 9. This is called birth compound number or destiny number. If we add only the date, then we get 8 which is called birth single number.

Generally, the combination of numbers 9 and 8 indicates irritation, anger and criminal tendencies. This is the case with normal human beings. But in case of Mother Teresa, these numbers should be applied to positive qualities. The number 9 indicates universal love and a humanitarian. Number 8 represents service and hardwork. So, service to humanity to achieve universal love is indicated in her birth numbers.

Her original name was Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. When we represent each letter of this name by numerical digits and find their sum, we will get 17 = 8 in Indian Vedic Numerology System. The same name gives us 88 = 7 in Pythagoras System. The number 8 in Vedic Numerology indicates patience, discipline and service. This is the path chosen by her. Number 7 represents investigative and spiritual mind. Her spiritual interests made her to join an abbey at Ireland at the age of 18. From that moment onwards, her name was changed to Teresa. Affectionately, people started calling her Mother Teresa.

Since she is more popular by the name Mother Teresa, we should judge her life events by this name only. The name Mother Teresa gives 47 in Indian System and 57 in Pythagoras System. Both these numbers are not good. The number 47 = 2 represents health disorders. This number ruins the married life. This was an indication that Mother Teresa could never marry.

The number 57 = 3 is better. It indicates philosophical mind. This number does not help people at mundane level. For example, this number will not give riches and money. It is called inner illumination number which awakes a person towards the purpose of life. This is exactly what happened in the life of Mother Teresa at the age of 36. She received the 'call within call', an inner voice from God directing her to devote her entire life in serving the poor and abandoned people of the society.

The name numbers of Mother Teresa = 2 and 3.
Her birth single and destiny numbers = 8 and 9.

If we take important events in the life of Mother Teresa, we can understand how the numbers 2, 3, 8 and 9 recurred in her life. According to Numerology, these numbers represent the year number when an event takes place. For example, she started her first home for dying people during the year 1952. If we add all the digits in this year, we get 8. Thus the number 8 is showing its influence in this event. Also, her actual age number will influence the events. For example, at the age of 18, she chose to become a nun and got the new name Teresa. If we add the digits in 18, we get 9. Thus 9 is exerting its affect on her in this event.
