Guru - Swami Nikhilanand

Swami Nikhilanand

Swami Nikhilanand, is a disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj. He was attracted to the teachings of Hinduism from a very young age.  Eventually, his deep spiritual longing led him to India, where he was most fortunate to come under the guidance of Shree Kripaluji Maharaj.  Thereafter, he extensively studied the Indian language Hindi, the Philosophy of the prime Sanskrit scriptures, (Vedas, Shastras, Gita and Bhagavatam) and practiced meditation.  In 2003 he was given Sanyas,  Now with the blessings of his Guruji, he offers lectures throughout America, teaching classes for all ages on topics such as The Bhagavad Gita, which is said to be the essence of the Vedas and The Sanatana Dharma, the true way of life. His pravachans provide clear explanations of Hindu Philosophy with inspired chanting of Sanskrit mantras, shlokas and melodious naam sankirtan.

Understanding any Hindu scripture including The Gita can be done only from a true saint. It is explained in the Gita that a person is qualified to study the Gita only when he has faith in Shri Krishna.  Also, Chapter 4, verse 34, of the Gita, explains that the knowledge of the Gita cannot be acquired without first surrendering to a realized saint.

It will be an incredible learning experience understanding the deepest aspects of Bhagavad Gita with guidance from Swami Nikilanand.  He resides at Radha Madhav Dham, the main US ashram of Jagadguru Kripalu Maharaj.
