In this world of strife and anxiety, the opportunity to associate with a traveling Indian sanyasi (Monk) is a great blessing. And if that sanyasi happens to be a well read scholar, it becomes a double blessing, for we can then hear from him the esoteric knowledge of the Vedas presented in a modern context.
Swami Mukundanand finished his B.Tech. from the world-renowned Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. He then completed his MBA from the equally distinguished Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta. After that he worked for some time with one of India’s topmost industrial houses.
However, material education did not quench his thirst for knowing the Absolute Truth. The longing for God was so strong that he renounced his career and began traveling throughout India as a sanyasi. Ultimately his search took him to the lotus feet of his Spiritual Master, Jagadguru Shri Kripaluji Maharaj. He was overawed by the unfathomable scriptural knowledge and ocean of Divine love that he saw manifest in his Gurudev.
Under the guidance of Jagadguru Shri Kripaluji Maharaj, he practiced intense sadhana while residing at the ashram. He also extensively studied the Vedic scriptures, and the Indian and Western systems of philosophy. On completion of his studies, his Guru entrusted him with the key task of propagating the ancient knowledge about the Eternal Truth, the world over. Ever since he became Maharajji’s disciple and a preacher, Swamiji has been traveling far and wide, awakening hundreds of thousands of Seekers. Using perfect logic, and a simple-yet-scientific approach, Swamiji offers new ways of understanding and applying the knowledge of the Scriptures (from the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavatam, Puranas, Bhagavad Geeta, and other Eastern and Western scriptures) in our daily lives. The hallmark of his speech is the ease with which he dispels various myths and misnomers associated with the various paths of God-realization and the ability to penetrate even the toughest minds and convince them with his depth and scriptural veracity.
