Sharada Devi had her first spiritual awakening when she was twenty two. It was then that she knew she was not of this world but had come from the stars.
Forever her life was changed and she began a very intense search for truth. She studied endless topics all around how to master the kundalini energy. This search initially led her down all sorts of spiritual paths because Sharada Devi is a chameleon of transformation and she will do almost anything to get a result. Finally, she settled on a path she could trust — herself. This is why Sharada Devi is an alchemical artist in every sense of the word.
Through her relentless creativity, she delivers an otherworldly blend of grace, authority and authenticity about how to be the yoga, not do the yoga. Her life is about shedding skin and growing wings. Everything she touches gets lit on fire. That is why she is a flame that cannot be put out.
Because of this she is an unusual spiritual teacher whose very existence is a rebellion against the confinement of many familiar crutches. She sometimes disappears but she never goes away because Sharada Devi lives a very different life than most people. She lives behind the scenes receiving and translating messages and impressions she receives from the astral realm – which she then weaves into her creativity or uses to transform herself and others. Just like the ouroboros snake always eating it’s tail, Sharada Devi is always changing herself and destroying the old. She has been born many times in this one life.
Sharada Devi was married to the renowned, yet provocative, nada yoga master – Bhagavan Das for twelve years. During those twelve years not only did she travel around the world with him singing to God, doing yoga workshops and retreats and teaching tantra, she also produced, sang and played percussion on: Love Songs To The Dark Lord, The Howler At Dawn and Mother Light cd’s.
Being with to Bhagavan Das exposed her to a “behind the scenes” reality that was both the best and worst thing that ever happened to her. The best because she learned about her own power and the worst because she saw the truth about everyone she had idealized. This experience however, goes with the territory of Sharada Devi’s formidable yogic life. From near death experiences and beyond she has lived a life that has put her into some very challenging situations which has enabled her to know her own authentic self authority – which has been her lesson and is now what she has to offer others — How to reside in the power of the presence of whatever the moment brings — And, how to live your truth with fearless personal sovereignty.
Sharada Devi has been blessed by many gurus. She has also been guided and given spiritual transmissions by some of the great yogic masters of our time. She is a true mystic and a poet who uses the shadow to fortify the spirit. She recycles psychic trash and creates soulful and mysterious works of art.
In the Karma Kagyu lineage, Sharada Devi was given the name Drime Khandro which means “Stainless Dakini.” Anandi Ma gave her the name Sharada Devi which means “The light of the full autumn moon.” It is also the tantric version of the name Saraswati.
Sharada Devi has had many names as she has been traveling through space and time. However, she believes that the journey doesn’t end on earth, but spirals upwards toward the stars — because only then can we know who we truly are.
