Ms. Lucy Guest (Divya Prabha)


Divya Prabha (Lucy Guest) from the UK says that in some mysterious ways unconsciously her passion for Sanskrit came with her from her previous life. Divya runs the International Chandramauli Charitable Trust in Varanasi. Divya did her UG and Masters with Honours at Oxford University UK, in Metallurgy and the Science of Materials. After some years of working in the City in London and on Wall Street for American Investment Banks, she changed the course of her life by leaving the UK with Brahmrishi Vishvatma Bawraji Maharaj. She continued to learn under Swami Yoganand Parivrajak and came to Varanasi in 2006 to embark on Traditional Sanskrit Studies at Sampurnanand Sanskrit Vishwavidyalaya, Varanasi. She is inspired by the Ancient Indian Traditions specifically Santana Dharma which include the Vedas, Yoga philosophy and Bharatiya Sanskriti. She found that these support and show a way of leading a peaceful, conscious, truthful, knowledgeable, happy and sustainable life.
