"‘Saiyam’ means the ability to analyse each and every moment and consistently work towards improving yourself. "

Our present nature, behaviour and actions are a reflection of our past. And so, a soul who has practiced deep sadhana since several births, stands out distinctively from other individuals of the same age. Mumukshu Shri Ria didi was blessed with Param Gurudev’s sanidhya at the very young age of just five years. In an age where children like to play with friends, she would love doing vihar (travelling on foot) with Param Gurudev.
As a child, she was a very active student of Look N Learn Jain Gyan Dham, which played a pivotal role in nurturing her young mind with Prabhu’s values. Sometimes she would practice the dashmu vrat (tenth vow) and go for gochri (seeking alms) to many houses. Sometimes, she would dress up as a mahasatiji and participate in various programmes. Only time knew that it was moulding her destiny which would finally lead her onto the path of saiyam one day.
Ria didi’s parents are core Gurubhakts who tirelessly offer seva in several missions initiated by Param Gurudev. And following their footsteps, Ria didi became a Sambodhi Satsang teacher at the young age of just twelve years. An excellent speaker who has the art of conveying Prabhu’s message in a simple and heart touching manner, Ria didi also became the youngest shasan prabhavak to conduct Paryushan Mahaparva lectures in USA at the age of fifteen years. She has mastered several languages including English, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, German, Sanskrit and Prakrit. Throughout COVID-19, Ria didi has regularly conducted Online Sambodhi Satsang for kids and youngsters from various regions including USA, UK, Dubai, Singapore, Uganda and India.
Apart from spiritual knowledge, Ria didi also has versatile talents. She holds a certificate in Graphics Designing. She has pursued a creative writing programme under IIM Bangalore’s ‘My Captain Course’, and is skilled at writing novels, stories, poems and script writing. Ria didi has anchored several events in Param Gurudev’s sanidhya and has been a regular participant and sevak in several shibirs conducted by Param Gurudev.

Even though Ria didi was aware of the truth from a very young age, she had a desire to fully experience that truth before taking the final step. And so, she indulged in all her hobbies and took an experience of everything. At the end of each experience, she listened to her inner voice that craved for permanent happiness. Only when she truly felt that the happiness I find in myself cannot be found anywhere else, did she take the final decision of adopting the path of saiyam.
