Sadhvi Siddhali Shree has been studying under the guidance of enlightened master Acharya Shree Yogeesh since she was 20 years old. Upon meeting Acharya Shree, she was surprised that very few westerners knew about him and his teachings — a treasure in her eyes she felt needed to be shared to help others. Inspired by her deep devotion, she creatively began spreading his teachings online and in print including developing websites, establishing his YouTube channel and social media presence, publishing books, audio, cd courses, and dvds. At the age of 24, she took Jain diksha (initiation) in 2008 and entered his monk order, Siddha Sangh. Since then, she continues to help develop his main ashram, Siddhayatan Tirth, among other centers and causes internationally.
