Some people live their Life for a Cause. And Chitra Sukhu is one such Lady. She has committed her Life in diligent Service to enhance the Lives of so many Others. Her Cause is, “To Enrich, Empower, and Enlighten (E3) through Yoga, Ayurveda, Vedanta, and Meditation.” Her Purpose is, “To raise the Consciousness of the World, so that All may live Happier, Healthier Lives together as a Whole.” PRomoting OM is an extension of this cause; promoting others who have something positive and uplifting to offer will help raise the consciousness of the world.
Chitra was born in Guyana to a Family of Indian ancestry. Although raised mostly in the United States, She also grew up in the many Sivananda Ashrams scattered around the world. Chitra’s parents, Yogi Hari and Leela Mata, joined the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Organization when She was three years old. And since the tender age of three, Chitra has practiced Yoga and Meditation daily. Such immersion in this Classical Culture, Discipline, and Celebration of Life has given Her a rather rare orientation for someone in the Western World. Reflecting Inner Wisdom She says, “Even though I come from the Sivananda lineage and respect all Teachers, I don’t claim any Guru. My Guru has been Life – and through Life I have learned My greatest Lessons.”
