Swami Mukundananda is a renowned spiritual teacher from India, and is the senior disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj. He is a unique sanyasi (in the renounced order of life),

who has a distinguished material educational background as

well. Hearing the profound secrets of the Vedas from him is a rare privilege, for he is able to explain the ancient esoteric Vedic knowledge with rigorous scientific logic, in the modern context.

 

Academic and Professional Accomplishments 

Swami Mukundananda 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 house.

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 travelling throughout India as a sanyasi.

 

At the Lotus Feet of his Spiritual Master 

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 Shree Maharajji, 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, 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 in our daily lives.

He often tours outside India as well. He has inspired thousands of people in USA, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong, where his visit is always anxiously awaited. His simple, scientific and interesting presentation of the philosophy is so powerful that it has changed the lives of thousands of people.

 

His lectures cover the teachings of the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavatam, Puranas, Bhagavad Geeta, Ramayan, and other Eastern and Western philosophies. Like the true disciple of a true master, Swamiji masterfully quotes from scriptures of different religions, to satisfy even the most discerning of knowledge seekers.

Scriptural Confusions Dispelled

 

       

 

 The ancient Hindu scriptures like the Vedas, Upanishads, Shreemad Bhagavatam, Bhagavad Gita, Ramayan, etc. are all treasure houses of Divine knowledge. They were either directly spoken by God in his various descensions on earth, or were inspired by him in the hearts of the Saints. But when these great scriptures are read individually, they appear to have many contradictions. This has led to much confusion in the minds of people.

In his lectures, Swamiji answers such questions which have always puzzled people and shows the clear, simple truth. Some of the confusions and contradictions which he addresses are:  

1.   a) God can never be seen or understood by our material senses and intellect because He is Divine.
b) God can be seen, attained and understood, even through our material senses and intellect. The God-realized Saints in the past have done so.  

 

2.   a) God is attained through His Grace, and not through our self-effort.
b) Unless we exert effort and do sadhana, we cannot attain God.  

 

3.   a) Everything happens by the will of God. Without his inspiration, not even a leaf can move.
b) We are responsible for our own actions. God is only an impartial judge of our activities.  

 

4.   a) What we get in this life is the consequence of our actions in past lives. We are all controlled by our destiny.

      b) We all have the free-will to act. We are the makers of our own destiny.
 

5.   a) This world is mithya or unreal since it is made of maya.
b) This world is satya or real, and necessary for the maintenance of the body. Without it we cannot live.  

 

6.   a) Liberation from material bondage is the ultimate goal of spirituality.
b) The desire for liberation is a selfish desire, and only when we give it up can we attain pure Divine love.  

 

7.   a) Service to man is service to God. One who performs his worldly duties sincerely, does not need to worship God.
b) Devotion to God is not the same as the performance of worldly duties. It must be separately accomplished.  

 

8.   a) Our surrender and single-minded devotion should be towards God alone.
b) Unless we surrender to a Guru, we cannot reach God.  

 

9.   a) The aim of meditation is to think of God and establish the mind in God.
b) The aim of meditation is to stop the thinking process and quiet the mind.


Bhajans & Kirtans

 

   

 

 

The most invaluable treasure attainable in the human form is Selfless Divine Love. This Divine love is the culmination of all spiritual knowledge. It is experienced not through the intellect, but through the heart. When our heart melts for our Beloved Lord, an intense longing for His Divine Vision develops. This cleanses the mirror of the mind and destroys its negativities. The consciousness is united with God in love, and the devotee experiences perfect Bliss.

 

In his programs, Swamiji chants the sweetest bhajans that inspire devotional love and transport the consciousness to subliminal heights.
