Her mission is to help spread the universal teachings of Acharya Shree and the Tirthankaras worldwide and inspire others to follow the path of non-violence in order to achieve total freedom.
Nonviolence is the greatest principle to bring peace in this world because it means to be one with every living being throughout the universe. Nonviolence promotes co-existence, which is to let live and live.
When you feel oneness with all living beings, you will truly understand what it means to be in oneness with yourself. The teaching of Oneness reminds us that we are all connected, we must co-exist together peacefully, and we cannot live without the other.
Total Transformation means changing all areas of your life completely. To transform all your lower qualities into higher qualities. When you totally transform your life, you can influence and impact others in a positive way.
Inner Awakening is a sudden click and jolt within you that changes your reality from darkness to light. It is this inner awakening that begins your spiritual journey.
Self-analysis is self-awareness, which can help you grow in all aspects. Self-awareness helps you identify the areas that need improvement in your life.
Liberation is the process of shedding all karmas, blockages, illusion, ego, ignorance, pain, and suffering. Spirituality teaches you how to free your soul and achieve bliss.
