We are tremendously excited to annouce Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati joining OurVoices as a Spiritual Ambassador.
Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati lives in the foothills of the Himalayas, in Rishikesh, India, and is the Secretary-General of the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance, an international alliance of interfaith religious leaders working for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).
Through her work, Sadhvi has helped bridge the gap between faith and secular communities to shift values and change behaviors for a clean and sustainable future.
Raised in a traditional American family in California, she had a life-changing transformative experience on the banks of the Ganges after graduating from Stanford University, and has now lived in Rishikesh for nearly 20 years. She was officially ordained into the order of Sanyas (monastic vows) by her guru His Holiness Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswati in the year 2000, and frequently gives spiritual discourses, question-answer sessions, and counseling and coaching programs. In addition to this, she also oversees a myriad of charitable and humanitarian programs including the Divine Shakti Foundation and annual International Yoga Festival.
In order to win the the fight against climate change, we need the support of everyone, regardless of race, caste, or religious beliefs.
Sadhvi and her work over the past two decades embodies the essence of our multi-faith spirituality and unity within our diversity, and we can't wait to see what work we achieve together.
