Sitara is highly appreciative of Advaita Vedanta, while at the same time approving of several Western Advaita teachers. She loves Indian culture and spent many years in India. Born in 1954, she became a disciple of Osho in 1979. In 2002, she met Dolano and from then on, discovered Western-style Advaita teachings, especially those of Gangaji. After reading Back to the Truth by Dennis Waite, Sitara started to study traditional Advaita Vedanta (main influences being Swami Paramarthananda, Swami Dayananda and Swami Chinmayananda). She teaches several students on a one-to-one basis (Western-style teaching inspired by Advaita Vedanta).
