Sadguru Cyriaque Vallee is originally from France. He was a successful fashion model and used to travel the world modelling for internationally recognised brands such as Giorgio Armani and Ermenegildo Zegna. When he was introduced to spirituality by his wife (who was also a successful model), he realised that only spiritual practice can give everlasting happiness. In January 2009, they made the decision to come stay at the SSRF Research Centre and dedicate themselves to spiritual practice with their daughter, Anastasia. They moved to India with only 3 suitcases of belongings and they have been living in the SSRF Research Centre for the past 10 years. By doing spiritual practice with full dedication he made rapid spiritual progress and reached Sainthood in 2013. Cyriaque oversees all of SSRF’s activities internationally and many seekers have received invaluable guidance and support from him in their spiritual journeys.
Her Holiness Bhavana Shinde started spiritual practice in 1999 under the guidance of SSRF and His Holiness Dr Athavale. For the most part of her spiritual journey, she has also worked in the IT industry in the USA as a computer engineer with a Masters in Business Administration, while looking after her son and family. Ever since she was a child, the lives of Saints such as Tukaram and Mirabai held a special place in her heart and she yearned to be like them. In 2015 she achieved a milestone in that direction when His Holiness Dr Athavale announced that she had attained the state of Sainthood. Yet her journey to Sainthood has not been easy. She has had to overcome many hardships in her life. Her spiritual journey is a testimony to the fact that one can become a Saint despite severe destiny and distress, by doing spiritual practice as per the basic principles of Spirituality. It was only because of her intense desire to go to God that she turned each difficulty into an opportunity for spiritual growth and surrender to God. It is because of her motherly love for seekers and her personal experience, that she is able to accurately guide seekers in a way that they easily imbibe the guidance.
