Dr. Satya Narayana Das Babaji visits Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda

Guruji’s dear friend from Vrindavan, Dr. Satya Narayana Dasa Babaji, arrived yesterday for a short visit to Shree Peetha Nilaya on his way to a tour in Poland and Lithuania. Satya Narayana Das is a world renowned scholar on Vedic scriptures and philosophy, and co-founder and director of the Jiva institute of Vedic Studies in Vrindavan.

Director of the Jiva institute of Vedic Studies, Satya Narayana Dasa has been visiting SPN from year one (2008), and has supported Guruji’s mission in many ways. This has been especially true over the past few years in Vrindavan, where Bhakti Marga has built an ashram near his home, the Jiva Institute. http://www.jiva.org/

Guruji and Satya Narayandas visited the BM Academy Teacher Training in the afternoon, where Babaji gave a satsang to the teacher trainees about Vedanta (Hindu philosophy), and about the philosophies of the different sampradayas (spiritual lineages within Vaishnavism).

Later on, after evening prayers, Guruji and Babaji visited the temple and sang bhajans with devotees. Guruji sang bhajans for Radhe, and Babaji sang the Gopi Gita with everyone, before the temple closed for the night with an arati.

Visit to SPN in 2012:


Jai Gurudev, we wanted to remind everyone that in December there will be an amazing pilgrimage coming up with Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda in South India. Swamiji (and possibly you) will be visiting some of the most auspicious temples and pilgrimage sights for all Vaishnavas, many of which are nearly impossible to have granted access without the presence of Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda. If you are interested in going, you can learn more about the pilgrimage by clicking on this link: https://www.bhaktimarga.org/southindia2016

(Registration closes on June 31st, so it's important to reserve your spot soon)
