Everybody shared their unique expression of their love and gratitude for Sadhviji, sometimes with flowers, gifts, cards or sometimes just with their experience of the impact of her presence in their lives, and were joyful to receive her warm hugs and smiles.
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 and fresh snacks, pakoras and chai from the farm. Everyone joined together to plant several saplings along the premises in honor of Pujya Swamiji’s message of celebrating birthdays and festivals as green ones.

During the evening Ganga Aarti, admist beautiful sanskrit birthday song a fragrant elachi mala, for the sweet fragrance of divinity she brings to the people and the environment around her, as well as with a beautiful shawl and 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 she helps guide seekers deeper on their path to self-realization and truth. She was offered birthday songs in various languages -from Arabic to Gujarati, from Chinese to French and from Hindi to Spanish as she distributed sweets to everyone. The evening ended with a special distribution of delicious fruit cake for all the students, devotees and pilgrims.
Although the day was a divine occasion in which we honoured and cherished a life that deeply inspires, moves and touches us, we hope that you can also share with us what a gift Sadhvi Bhagawatiji and her teachings are to you and how her life and her service inspires you in your own lives.
