Her spiritual name given by the acharyas of the Sivananda School is “Prema”. It means “Divine Love”. She feels this is an important reminder of the goal in life. No matter cultures, ages, gender, social conditions… “LOVE” is all there is. Divine Love is unconditional Love, one gives without any expectation to receive anything in return. If we all give and help other beings, the whole world will change.
Her main purpose in life is to serve as an instrument to pass on the Yoga Teachings she has received.
