Filmmaker Neha Lohia and Woman Spiritual leader Sadhvi ji took New York from Hollywood to the Himalayas in one evening
Filmmaker Neha Lohia and Woman Spiritual leader Sadhvi Ji came together in a heart-warming and soul-nourishing event that took New York from Hollywood to the Himalayas in one evening. Neha’s goal is to promote Eastern culture, women in spiritual leadership positions, and empower humanity by creating films, content, and opportunities that explore deeper truths and bridge the gap between east and west, body mind, and soul. Sadhvi Ji left her comfortable life to help people find their paths to inner fulfillment when she found her own.
The event was a packed house and attended by Indian and American dignitaries, actors, doctors, media professionals, authors, and business tycoons of NYC. The guests were deeply moved and unanimously encouraged Neha. They mentioned that this work is needed now more than ever and that they are in complete support of her vision.
Neha is determined to promote women in spiritual leadership and Eastern culture through her films and work. When asked why she is so committed to this, Neha said, “Show me one spiritual scripture ever written by a woman. When were we as women ever allowed to have a voice, a say, and be given the chance to share the wisdom that is trusted only in us as women, as creators? Pain, suffering, each rejection and denial is a portal, for me these are truths of life, stories of resilience of human spirit, and I wish to create through them. My work is connecting with people’s hearts as I am able to relate to their hurt, pain, and suffering at that very base level of my own. It is time we recognize that everything is created by Shakti, by her power in this world, and we need to give her the share of stage, validation, and recognition that she deserves. This is my dharma path to say the stories of this Shakti in very many forms and showcase her through all my works.”
Neha’s work is a reflection of her deep understanding of the human condition and her desire to empower people to find their own paths to fulfillment. Her films explore the themes of resilience, strength, and inner transformation, and she believes that the stories of women in spiritual leadership can be a powerful force for change in the world.
Sadhvi Ji and Neha are women from opposite parts of the world, with different Janmabhoomi (birth land) and are now serving on different karma Bhoomi (work land) merging all boundaries and sharing the gifts of India and Eastern spirituality as women leaders in their own ways and work. Together, they are determined to create and offer the world many more things in the days to come.
New York’s incredible talent came together to support Neha, including the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, the Indian Consulate in New York, several dignitaries like Tirlok Malik the filmmaker, Prashant Goyal, founder of heritage India fashions, Shiv Khemka of tGELF, queens world film festival, chip away productions, apple productions, and a devoted team including media professionals like Kai MKenna, art director Nabha, influencer Christine Mendes, screenwriter Henry Negrete, producer Boby Lohat, chef Dhara Shah, animator Coumba Seye, musician Indro, and photographer Rob Klein. TV Asia, ITV, Parikh media, QPTV, and many press and media organizations also joined in full capacity.
The event was an opportunity to learn tools to unleash creativity and inner strength using Eastern ways of the heart. Sadhvi Ji shared her wisdom and experience with the audience, helping them to connect with their own inner power and find their paths to fulfillment.
