Mira Sai

Born and raised in New Delhi, India, educated in the very best Catholic convent schools, a Philosophy major from Lady Sri Ram College, Delhi, Mira Sai’s vacation to New York at the age of 22 turned unexpectedly into a permanent move. She became the CEO of her own large scale wholesale business in New York City, USA, at the young age of 23 years, manufacturing and importing her own label of designer clothing from India for major U.S. retail stores. She later moved to California and practiced as a very successful Financial Advisor, designing financial portfolios, receiving numerous awards every year.

During these years, Mira Sai, known as Arti Gupta, served on the Board of Trustees at the Fremont Temple of California for four years. She also served as Vice-President of the Nargis Dutt Cancer Foundation, organizing fundraisers with her team and sending medical equipment for cancer patients to hospitals in India. Well-known and highly respected in the Bay area and very often invited as Guest of Honor at public Indian functions, Ms. Sai was periodically in the news in the local Indian newspaper and TV channel.

But as fate would have it, an almost fatal near-death car accident in 1994, took her on the “Other Side”. Here in the embrace of Pure Consciousness, where there is no duality, she witnessed, and at the same time, experienced, the dissolution and merging of her Spirit in that Divine Consciousness, simultaneously, witnessing and experiencing a “transmutation” bringing about a complete metamorphosis, a rebirth of her Spirit Being - as the phoenix rising from the ashes.

Upon her return, Mira Sai’s life journey took a 360 degree turn towards a divinely inspired spiritual life. In essence, living in the world but not of it… Her Oneness with Supreme Consciousness on the ‘other side” had made the impermanence of the “Life” movie very clear.

She walked away from her previous social, wealthy lifestyle to the only abode of peace she knew. The ashram of Sri Sai Baba, her spiritual master in Puttaparthi, India. Here she lived for five years in austere living conditions, delving deeper into her bliss-filled self with the grace of Sai Baba on her. At this time, her spiritual master confirmed the fact that she was not the previous Arti Gupta and conferred on her the name Mira Sai.

Returning to California in 2001, Mira Sai went on to do a short Course in Child Developmental Psychopathology at Stanford University, California and completed World Religion studies at World University, Ojai, California. She was duly ordained as an ecumenical spiritual minister, conferring on her the title “Reverend”. At this time, she also practiced as a very successful Realtor in N. California.

In 2007, she founded a Non-profit Charitable Org in California, the Sai Humanitarian Institute of Learning & Healing, now known as Sai Global Foundation and opened a multi-faith sanctuary temple in San Jose, Ca. Filled with divine healing vibrations, it became known as the ‘kalpavriksham’ (wish-fulfilling tree), fulfilling the prayers of the hundreds who came there.

A mystic, living in meditative divine consciousness, Mira Sai has been graced to take many sacred journeys into the Himalayas, meeting many highly evolved ascetics. She has climbed twice, the highly sacred Mt. Kailash at 20,000ft. in heavy snow, almost losing her life and bathed in almost a dozen freezing holy rivers. Meditating in powerful caves in the Himalayas, like Maharishi Ved Vyasa cave, Maharishi Vasishta cave, Adi Shankaracharya’s Samadhi (tomb), and many Buddhist monasteries including a monastery-cave in Thailand, where she has meditated beside a 1000-year-old mummified body of a monk and experienced oneness with him. Many rare, divine experiences on earth have strengthened her knowings from the “other side”.

A philanthropist at heart, living to Help Ever Hurt Never and Love All Serve All, she has built a world-class professional recording studio for the furtherance of the spiritual teachings of Sai Baba. She has also been blessed to install an RO Industrial Drinking Water plant which delivers almost 12,000 liters of RO water per day for poor villagers who were in dire need of drinking water.

She has personally narrated and produced two professional Audio versions of Sai Baba’s books on ‘Vidya Vahini’ and ‘Geetha Vahini’ and an audio CD of devotional songs called Sai Ananda. She also paints and writes. Mira Sai has published her first book, “Enstasy – Standing Inside Oneself” which contains revelations of the Truths received by her while she was on the ‘other side’ and her experiential meditations upon her return, written in the form of Mystical Poetry. Enstasy is also available as an eBook and a CD album with professionally choreographed music as a background to the soothing narration. She is currently working on her autobiography - a miraculous adventure of life where many will find themselves traveling a similar path.

Her non-profit organization Sai Global Foundation is also in the process of establishing a sanctuary which will assist in empowering people into discovering their innate divinity leading to a more joyous and peaceful way of life.

In the last 40 odd years, with the grace of her spiritual master Sai Baba, Mira Sai Ma as she is fondly called, had gained a wealth of experience in many varied areas as Arti, before her death accident. These experiences were replete with many trials and tribulations, highs and lows, gains and losses, along with fame, fortune and wealth, which brought forth monumental courage and hidden strengths. But after her rebirth from death… the depth of that metamorphosis brought her to the realization of our Spirit as being eternal and life being just a play of personal experience, a temporary vacation where we come with a “return ticket” to Home. This knowing of the Truth of her own reality and the reality of all of Existence - of all of us: she sums up in one word. LOVE.

“You Are the Power, You Are the Truth, You Are the Love, You Are… ALL that you Seek!”
