An Interview with Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati, Ph.D Secretary-General, Global Interfaith WASH Alliance

Sadhvi describes her awakening and reveals her story. Before she had gone to India, she did nothing on any conscious or spiritual level. Sadhvi agreed to go to India because she was a strict vegetarian. When Sadhvi arrived in India, she experienced unexpected awakeness, truth, and divinity. The academic brain fought with Sadhvi’s oneness. We need to learn how to appreciate and enjoy the experience of our duality. When we feel true serenity, we relieve ourselves of stress and freely live in the present moment. Then, Sadhvi explains the importance of vision when it comes to conscious leadership. Not just financially where the business is going, but where are you really going? Later, Sadhvi explains how to find out which truth is the right truth, why there may be a problem with your meditation, and Sadhvi reveals our greatest gift.

In this episode:

  • [01:15] Meet Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswatiji – she reveals her story of grace.
  • [08:30] How academics affected Sadhvi’s cohesive wholeness. Sadhvi’s thinking mind didn’t give up easily.
  • [25:00] Stress will interrupt our serenity and keep us from being peaceful. Thoughts of not enough will disrupt our presence.
  • [32:15] What’s the point of a fast speed that has no direction? Sadhvi describes the importance of conscious leadership. A conscious leader knows where they are going.
  • [43:50] Sadhvi tells a story about a king and a holy man. We are all used as tools – this is the core of how Sadhvi lives and leads.
  • [48:40] How to figure out which truth is the right truth. The right truth will feel better. For example, being in love feels better than being in hate.
  • [60:00] There is a problem in your meditation if you are not serving well. Sadhvi talks about the programs she runs.

Key Takeaways:

  • Appreciate the creation – we have five senses to experience the creation.
  • Serenity comes when there is nothing you have to do.
  • Learn how to become a vehicle for the divine to flow through without the ego.
  • A conscious leader needs to know where they are going.
  • Our purpose is to get out of the way of what we think we are. We need actually to experience who we are and what we know.
