After Swami Rama left his body, he blessed her to enhance her Sadhana in Srividya in the South Indian tradition under the tutelage of Guru Sri Satyanandanatha of Mysore, a great Srividya adept and popularly known as Mahamahopadhyaya Dr. R. Satyanarayana.
Through her dedication to the guru and the shastra, she deepened her practice and experiences on Srividya Tantra.
Another dimension of Jyothiji's personality is that, while a professor of English, she is a Bharatanatya dancer and teacher by passion; a Choreographer spreading the roots of spirituality in dance, in the light of Yoga - Meditation - Srividya spiritual practices.
Jyothiji works tirelessly in creating an environment conducive for culturing the divine samskaras in her dance students and spiritual aspirants, according to the ancient shastras of our traditions.
