Sadhviji's #1 Best-Selling Memoir

Hollywood to the Himalayas is an enlightening memoir of a reluctant spiritual seeker who finds her true self and lifelong calling when she travels to India.

As a Stanford PhD student living in California, Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswatiji was comfortable with her life. Despite years of grappling with an eating disorder and trauma from her early childhood, she felt as if she was successfully navigating her way through early adulthood. When she agreed to travel to India—and because she loved the food—Sadhviji would have never imagined that she would be embarking on a journey of healing and awakening.

Hollywood to the Himalayas describes Sadhviji’s odyssey towards divine enlightenment and inspiration through her extraordinary connection with her guru and renewed confidence in the pleasure and joy that life can bring. Now one of the preeminent female spiritual teachers in the world, Sadhviji recounts her journey with wit, honesty, and clarity and, along the way, offers teachings to help us all step onto our own path of awakening and discover the truth of who we really are—embodiments of the Divine.
