Suu Kyi also said that Mahatma Gandhi and Nehru were the two Indian leaders to whom she felt "closest".
Sonia Gandhi in her address described Suu Kyi's five-day visit as "something of a homecoming" and told the democracy leader that she was the "worthy inheritor" of a "noble father's legacy".
"As in the case of Mahatma Gandhi, her life is her message," Sonia said. "You have been the keeper of Mahatma Gandhi's flame in your own country... To stand alone against power, whatever the cost, even to the point of defying the pointed rifle, requires extraordinary inner strength and resolve. To do so, not in order to acquire power or high office, but to empower a whole people, is even more heroic."
Suu Kyi, who arrived on Tuesday, also met Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai. They discussed the domestic issues of Myanmar, though it was not clear whether the Rohingyas dispute came up.
Earlier, Suu Kyi paid tribute at the samadhis of Mahatma Gandhi and Nehru.
