Mata Urmila Devi's life story is a beautiful tapestry woven with gently spun threads and radiant colours. Mata Urmila Devi was raised in a rich spiritual tradition. Thanks to the spiritual commitment of her parents, she had the opportunity to meet great masters of India. In 1987, a profound sense of spiritual blooming advance was essential for Mata Urmila Devi to meet His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. This was an event that was to dramatically change her life.

Under His leadership, she studied Indian philosophy with focus on the Bhagavadgita and Vedanta. That spirituality, so fundamental to her being, flowered under his guidance. While actively engaged in several social service projects through her work, she radiates the deep wisdom of ancient India combined with the rapid pace of contemporary living. This knowledge, combined with her unique voice, is a transcendental experience that you cannot miss. Since her childhood days, her father would take her to the banks of the Ganges to listen to intellectual and spiritual discourses from India's greatest spiritual saints and sages such as Swami Brahmananda Saraswati, Swami Sivananda and Anandamayi Ma among others. Generosity and compassion were her father's codes of conduct as he was inclined to charity and was an active agent of social welfare.

This generosity was a legacy that Mata Urmila Devi was to inherit. Surely, the seeds of knowledge planted over the years of her childhood continue to blossom and bear fruits. Mata Urmila Devi studied economics and music; nevertheless as a student, she excelled in arts and paintings, poetry and literary writing. Pursuing her entrepreneurial spirit, she moved to Switzerland and started her own fashion and design company managing a successful business for over 13 years. Apart from being an experienced teacher in the fields of yogic techniques, meditation and Ayurveda, she is known for incorporating her healing and meditative singing to her seminars. Today, she is one of the most experienced and beloved teachers in the Art of Living Foundation.

Mata Urmila Devi has travelled to over 40 countries - North America, Europe, Southeast Asia and Africa over 20 years, giving concerts as well as conducting courses & seminars for The Art of Living Foundation. Today, Mata Urmila Devi devotes her time to her special: "Evenings of Music, Wisdom and Meditation". The occasional concerts, lectures and seminars leave audiences thrilled with an experience of the deep silence of their own Self. She travels all over the world performing her beautiful interpretations of the ancient Vedic chants and wisdom. Read more on Last.fm.
