"Sometimes river flows very strong, sometimes it flows very small, but it makes no difference to the ocean because it is satisfied in itself with its own quantity of water. Similarly, when our heart is cleansed with spirituality, we find pleasure and ecstasy with our own selves that is so sweet, so wonderful and so satisfying, that the so-called pleasures of this world no longer have any values, no appeal at all."

My name is Nandini, let me introduce you a very brief bio about me. I have cultivated my spiritual practice in South America, Spain and Italy, as well travelling to America but primarily India since 2001. Along with my husband, we have founded Premm Shakti Spiritual Center in Varanasi, an unique realm of the Divine Mother were we offer meditations, puja ceremonies and healing treatments, as well as selling sustainable sourced fabrics, spiritual items, custom clothing and unique accessories for your wellbeing.

My spiritual journey began over two decades ago. I was studying art and design, but had feelings of restlessness questioning myself about purpose of life. Both my mother and father had a rooted sense of spirituality, at that time, that they often shared with me but it wasn’t until this time in my life, around the age of 19, that I began to connect with it.

In the mood for music one morning, I pressed play on the cassette player (yes, it was that long ago!) and to my surprise the most wonderful and unimaginable mantra that could exist began to fill up the room with mystic timelessness.

I was overcome with emotion listening to the powerful mantra, tears continued to flow and I trembled as I felt the mantra enter my consciousness. The simple words, Om Namah Shivaya, changed my life forever.

Fueled with curiosity, I secretly read my mother’s Osho book in just two days. After feeling the power of the mantra and Osho’s writings I asked my father to take me to the Temple which he always spoke of with such devotion (Bhakti yoga and Karma yoga).

My attachment was unleashed and shortly afterwards I was already materializing my first trip to India in 2001, where I joined an organized group for traveling.

It goes without saying that once my feet touched Indian soil, several days passed until I was able to stop crying because it was such an intense experience and awakening for me, where words couldn’t find meaning.

I quickly began to fully embrace the spiritual practice and lifestyle by wearing the traditional outfits and ornaments which gave me immense comfort and felt so familiar to me.

Over the last 20 years of living in India, I have had countless experiences where I studied and connected with many Masters who are genuinely devoted to the practice of Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, and Tantra Yoga.

Through their guidance interspersed through the years and spread across two continents, I have had magnificent and supernatural experiences. My practice has taken me all through India, Spain, and to an Ashram in Italy.

Together with my husband who is brahmin of our ancestral Maa Kali Temple in the mythical city of Varanasi, we have begun to develop a new and magnanimous project in our Maa Kali Temple where we offer visitors multiple opportunities for spiritual growth and guidance for the awakening of Shakti.

My Gurus

Radhanath Swami

Radhanath Swami is one of today’s most beloved and respected spiritual teachers. He spent his youth wandering through disparate countries and cultures yearning for an experience of truth; after finally meeting his spiritual teacher in India he has spent the last 50 years internalising that spiritual practice and sharing it with others. He is not only a guide, but a community builder, activist, and a New York Times Best selling author. Rooted in his study of ancient India’s mystic devotional tradition, Radhanath Swami’s message is as profound as it is simple: by cultivating a rich inner life of self-awareness and a genuine practice of service, we can become instruments of compassion and agents of sustainable change in the world.
I met my Gurudev a long time ago, back in 2001, in Bombay, India, and I knew it, at that very moment, that He was my Spiritual Father. Soon I felt His unmeasurable, unconditional, and Divine love towards me, his spiritual daughter. Without hesitation, I accepted Him at that precise moment as my Guru. After a few years and several travels to the USA and Italy, I took initiations in the sacred fire ceremony to consecrate this act of surrender and commitment.
Although my practice has changed and evolved quite a lot, always in Hinduism though, also I´ve met different teachers thorough my spiritual journey, I never cease to consider Him as my pillar and umbilical cord towards the Divine couple that melts my heart, especially in the Holy city of Shree Vrindavan Dham, Shree Shree Radha Krsna.

PARMATMA OSHI DEVI

For a start, having been educated in catholic context, in my adolescent years I read numerous Catholics Saints biographies and Occidental mystics writings, as famous Teillhard de Chardin and St John of the Cross, while I also started to read Oriental masters, saints or yogis, who confirmed my innate perceptions. Then my desire grew to be granted one direct mystic experience, and particularly the one, known in INDIA, as “Samadhi”.
While my secret wish was to meet awakened beings and actually the first spiritual master who directly asserted that I did not need any Spiritual guide, happened to be Swami Veetamohananda, from Mysore in south India, Spiritual director in Gretz Armainvilliers famous Vedantic Ashram, near Paris, a place where I used to retreat twice a year around my 40 ties and where famous french writer Romain Rolland, used to meditate and write. Swamiji immediately insisted that i was born enlightened, and that i should start to guide people with my natural awakened vision and wisdom.
The second person was Yogi Ram Prakash Sharmaji, whom I met in Northern India Khajuraho city, in December 1998. Sharmaji directly claimed that I was born guru and urged me to immediately teach and transmit.
The place I choose to keep connected with mother India, was the most ancient city of Benarès Varanasi, in Uttar Pradesh, which I recognized as my Inner City.
Yogi Sharmaji as a spiritual father if not my teacher, perfectly comforted my own nature as he insisted upon using the OBSERVER within ourselves, to develop. Yes for it is the penetrating ability to see through the appearances, that unveils the truth.
MYSTIC PATH.
Although I had a kind of scientific tendency to research from strict observation, another part of my nature underwent a mystic inclination, in alliance with Jesus presence. Brought in Catholic religion my parents kept JESUS picture in their room, baptized by John, in the Jordan river. Mesmerized by that image, about my 6 years, I decided my life would be looking for TRUTH” , which I spontaneously defined as The Source.
Born at the feet of Pyrenees mountains, during the last big war, I was lucky to grow in hilly countryside were NATURE and its teaching were so rich and beautiful. After school, my dad would send me into the fields with our 16 cows, something same as lord Krishna’s sheperd life, in his own childhood in North India. There I enjoyed meditations and one evening as I guided my herd home an inner voice said : “Now you are guiding the cows, later you will guide people”.
Indeed pastoral life under sky vault, was my first teacher and non-corrupted Initiator, for if we observe the manifested world, with sharp intelligence that speaks through the visible, we don’t need any books, neither human guru, to capture the science of the invisible.
