“We [at Path to Anandam] go to homeless shelters [here in California]. We go to interfaith groups. We are building neighborhood friendships with the mosques, gurdwara [and] churches. We celebrate various holidays together — Diwali, Christmas, etcetera.”
She glowed as she described one particular project in detail: they collected funds to buy sleeping bags to distribute to the homeless for Thanksgiving. “These kind of activities are very memorable for us,” she added.
But her passion doesn’t stop with the needy in California. Satya goes on to describe their partnership with Divine Shakti
, which provides holistically for the well-being of of women, their children, and orphaned and abandoned children in her home country. Together they design and implement programs to support women and children to be socially and financially self-sustaining. “We offer education, inspiration, spiritual and cultural development, holistic health care and shelter for those in need,” she added with a sense of pride.
“We are proud to be part of the organization Akshaya Patra
, that serves freshly prepared school meals every day to 1.39 million children in India to fight hunger, promote education, and eradicate poverty,” Satya beamed.
Her personal mission is to live in love and peace, and to propagate blissful living by helping others — especially destitute women and children — become more self-dependent and self-reliant.
As Satya saw these women and children living in situations that seem insurmountable, she felt a need to teach people how to find comfort in spiritual ways. She is fervent in her belief that each person can find “inner peace” regardless of their hardships. She now works tirelessly, teaching others the skills she learned from her personal faith practice of Bhagavad Gita. The Bhagavad Gita is an ancient Indian text that became an important work of Hindu tradition in terms of both literature and philosophy.
Her compassionate spirit has led her to touch thousands of lives through her books and speaking engagements. Satya has published many spiritual articles and 15 bestselling books. But even with her hectic schedule, she makes time to spend with the women and children she has championed for many years.
