Swami Paramatmanandaji blessed us with his presence in April 2023 for insightful discourses.

Program Schedule: April 20th-April 25th, 2023

Many of you may have listened to Swamiji in the previous years. He had struck an excellent chord with the audience here, and we requested him to visit us every year. Fortunately, he made time for an extended visit this year. Swamiji has become an important figure in spiritual India. Being a direct disciple of Pujya Swami Dayanandaji, he has organized an ashram in Rajkot for teaching both householders and brahmacharis. His excellent grasp of the subject matter, and speaking style, learned from his great master, made him a favorite with Swami Dayananda. So much so, that when the historic Dharma Acharya Sabha was established, he was asked to be the General secretary. So effective was he that upon Pujya Swamiji’s mahasamadhi, Swami Paramatmananda was appointed by all the mathadipatis – that included the Shankaracharyas – to become the Convener and the General Secretary of the Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha. This is a great honor!  I hope you have a chance to learn from this spiritual master.

Swami Paramatmananda is a scholar of Advaita Vedanta, as well as an excellent communicator. As such, he reminds audiences of the unique teaching style of his guru, Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati. The depth of his knowledge of Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and Brahma Sutras is very ably brought out by him in a manner that connects him to both  householders and sannyasis. His command of English and Sanskrit, plus an empathy for the students is wrapped in humor and practical examples. A rare teacher indeed!
