from hollywood to holy woods, sadhvi bhagawati saraswati TEDx talk


For most people, a good education, financial prosperity, and a happy marriage are the keys to a successful life, but Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati had all of that and left to become a nun in the Himalayas. In this astonishing, inspiring, and funny talk, Sadhvi shares the story of growing up in Hollywood, and graduating from Stanford before having a spiritual awakening on the Ganges River while on a backpacking trip to India.  She provides the powerful insights and simple lessons that have transformed her life from pieces to peace.

She has lived in Rishikesh, India for the past 20 years and is a renowned spiritual leader, speaker, writer and social activist.  She is the President of Divine Shakti Foundation, Secretary-General of the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance and Director of the annual International Yoga Festival at Parmarth Niketan, Rishikesh, India.
