Mitra's Journey & Work
Mitra's journey and her gift of special sight were predicted at the age of 7 by a high priest in Iran. By age 11, Mitra had already begun to realize her life of spiritual service through her volunteer efforts. A few years later, facing the challenges of a teen immigrant, Mitra's commitment to spiritual discipline and compassion for others deepened, further paving the way for her life's work.
For the past three decades, Mitra has built her life on three pillars: Devotion to spiritual enlightenment, service, and artistry. Mitra has been a teacher and guide for thousands. She has taught many acclaimed workshops, conducted blessing ceremonies, weddings, and funerals. Mitra's first book, Miraculous Silence, has been praised by spiritual leader Michael Beckwith, as well as Jennifer Aniston, Sheryl Crow, Gisele Bundchen, Randolph Duke, and award-winning architect Hitesh Mehta.
