Sadhvi Bhagawatiji’s Blessed, Blissful and Beautiful Birthday
Sadhvi Bhagawatiji’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.
In honour of her birthday, many members of the Divine Shakti Foundation joined together to wish her a green birthday with a beautiful, organic and green birthday salad, fresh from Parmarth Niketan’s organic 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 footprint, 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.

Her birthday celebrations were blessed by Pujya Swamiji and Pujya Sri Moojiji as well as honoured by Gurmukhji, Shri Ramesh Vaishji and joined by many others from all around the world. There was a special satsang and bhajan kirtan at the Parmarth’s organic farm 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.
During the evening Ganga Aarti, all of the Parmarth Rishikumars and Parmarth family honoured her with flowers and beautiful sanskrit birthday song. Thereafter, she led with Pujya Swamiji a beautiful satsang, a time in which they help and guide seekers deeper on their path to self-realization.
With Pujya Swamiji’s blessings, she also inaugurated the two day music festival at the Parmarth Ashram, paying tribute to Respected Swami Veenaji Maharaj of Rishikesh and the many musicians that he has inspired. During the inauguration she shared deeply inspiring message about how everything is pervaded by sound and spirit and what a beautiful joy it is to host the celebrations every year here at Parmarth. She also encouraged people to connect through the divine music at the festival to the eternal infinite and beautiful sound of their own souls. Pujya Swamiji also shared about the vital and crucial need for the music of love, peace and harmony to unite all of mankind towards a world that is free from violence and needless suffering.
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.
