Life & Spiritual Journey :
Swamini Godaavari grew up in the northern part of Romania. Spirituality was present and important for her since childhood, along with a strong inner call for India and its spiritual masters.
She left Romania to live and study in France at the age of 18. After travelling to India regularly during sixteen years, doing tapas & yatras (personal spiritual practice & pilgrimages) and following different paths with several gurus, she met Swami Vishwananda in June 2014.
Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda is her 9th Guru which is a number of completion. He is her Satguru. In a disciple’s life & spiritual process, the Satguru is the final guru who leads a disciple to realization. One can have many gurus to learn things but we have only one Satguru. When we meet The Satguru, there is no other place to go but to be with your guru and have “one single pointed devotion”.
Swamini Godaavari has equally been deeply touched by Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda’s goal of opening the hearts of men and bringing humanity from mind to Heart.
She joined her Guruji’s mission as a Swamini to live a life for others and spread the Message of Unconditional Love & Sanatana Dharma spiritual teachings around the world.
