Sadhvi Bhagawatiji’s Beautiful Birthday Celebrations
Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswatiji’s blessed, blissful and beautiful birthday celebrations started like most other days, dedicated to service of God’s Divine Grace, with her active engagement in a plethora of projects and programmes flourishing and thriving under her able leadership and tenacious dedication.
Her birthday celebrations were blessed by Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji – Muniji as well as joined by Michael Miller and many of our global family from all around the world. There was a special lunch that brought together diverse groups of people from all walks of life, in the spirit of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, another core tenet that she shares and honours through her life and teachings.
In honour of her birthday, our divine sevaks and Parmarth Niketan family joined together at the Parmarth Organic Farm and School in Veerpur to wish her a green birthday with a beautiful, organic and green birthday salad, fresh from the farm. The salad was also a symbol of Sadhvi Bhagawatiji’s strong belief and principle of leading a life that is treads lightly on the planet, mindfully reducing our carbon and water footprnt, and one that is least violent to our external and internal environment. As she often shares that one of the most fundamental and pivotal ways to do so is by leading a Vegetarian lifestyle, which is also one of the strongest actions one can take to abate and prevent global warming.

During the evening Ganga Aarti, Pujya Sri Vastji joined and offered his blessings as well. Admist beautiful sanskrit birthday song a sacred Rudraksha sapling was given to her as a symbol that just as the tree gives to the world ceaselessly so too does Sadhviji’s life of service. Thereafter, she led a beautiful satsang, a time in which they help and guide seekers deeper on their path to self-realization.
There were special distribution of homemade organic cake for all devotees, pilgrims, sevaks and students.
Although the day was one of the divine occasions in which we all enjoyed honouring and cherishing a life that deeply inspires, moves and touches us, we hope that you can also share with us what a great gift Sadhvi Bhagawatiji is to you and how her life and her service inspire you in your own lives.
