Divine Satsang

Sadhviji 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, and teaches meditation to seekers from every corner of the globe. Her talks blend the knowledge and logic of the West with the insights, spirituality and wisdom of the East.



Sadhviji has published several books in which she addresses a range of questions, from how we live our daily lives, the meaning of spirituality, the connections between science and spirituality, the philosophy of yoga and the Indian tradition, the effects of spirituality on our physical and emotional well-being, her Guru H.H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, and so much more.

New Book by Sadhviji!

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.

Agreeing to travel—because she loved the food—Sadhvi never imagined she would meet her guru and, as a result, find a way home to herself.

Now one of the preeminent female spiritual teachers in the world, Sadhvi 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—expansive love, perfection, and an embodiment of the Divine.

Engage in 50 acts of compassion and kindness throughout the year

On Pujya Sadhviji’s 50th birthday, a year-long online campaign has been launched to honour her teachings and her divine example by encouraging everyone to engage in at least 50 acts of compassion and kindness throughout the year, hopefully becoming inspired for many more thereafter! These acts of compassion can be anything including: planting a tree, feeding the hungry, providing the gift of education or medical care to those who can’t afford it, becoming a vegetarian (or vegan!) or any action of love and service.

Share a picture or post about that act with the hashtag #50ActsofCompassion​​ and we’ll like/share/retweet your post, getting even more visibility and inspiring others to share their love of the Creator by serving the Creation!
