Satsang with Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati
Wednesday, January 29th at 6:30pm

Sadhviji was raised in a traditional American family in Hollywood, California and graduated from Stanford University. She was completing her Ph.D. when she left America in 1996 to come and live permanently at Parmarth Niketan Ashram, on the holy banks of the Ganges river in Rishikesh, India. She has been living there, in the lap of the Himalayas, since, engaged in spiritual study, practice, and service.

She was officially initiated into the order of Sanyas (vows of renunciation) in June, 2000, by her guru His Holiness Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, marking her pledge to a life of service, renunciation, purity and devotion.

Sadhviji teaches meditation to seekers from every corner of the globe who travel to the Himalayas to learn the divine practice. She leads discourses and question-answer sessions on topics ranging from Indian spirituality to the bridge between science and spirituality to the keys of true happiness and meaning in daily life. She travels across the world giving spiritual discourses, question-answer sessions and meditation. Her talks blend the knowledge and logic of the West with the insights, spirituality and wisdom of the East.
