Thanks to Robert and Joyce Rawson, Sashini, Daniel & Jyoti  became caretakers of Divine Nature Sanctuary on April 1st, 2015. Inspired by the unconditional love and universal wisdom of Sri Sakthi Amma, we are dedicating this land to uplifting and transforming collective consciousness through devotion to the Divine in all its forms and formlessness. We do this by recognizing and embodying the eternal wisdom of the Vedas, Bhakti Yoga practices and more, so each of us can experience more peace, love and joy in life.

Sri Shakti Amma

Through our time spent with Amma, we learn about the precious gift of life and the practice of devotion: bhakti yoga. We experience how devotion opens us up inside to an eternal stream of unconditional love. By connecting with this love in the depths of our hearts, a wish naturally arises to want to share it with the world. More about Sri Sakthi Amma please click below.
