Who is swami Mukundananda?

Swami Mukundananda is a highly renowned spiritual teacher, who has dedicated his life for the service God and helping people with their spiritual quest. Swamiji is one of the senior disciples of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, the fifth authentic Jagadguru of this age.

An Engineer from IIT and an MBA from IIM, Swami Mukundananda embarked on his spiritual mission soon after his studies. Well versed with the Vedas, Shastras, Puranas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Geeta, Ramayan and The Bhagwatam, Swamiji has practiced and taught the Philosophy of Divine Love as elucidated by his Guru, Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj for over 22 years in many countries and extensively in India.

Swami Mukundananda is the founder of the acclaimed system of Yog known as, "Jagadguru Kripaluji Yog". Under his guidance, a unique educational program for youngsters called "Bal-Mukund" is also organised in many spiritual centers.

For the last quarter of a century, Shree Swamiji has been traveling far and wide, awakening hundreds of thousands of seekers. Carrying the flame of devotion in his heart, Swami Mukundandanda helps people embrace the path of devotion to God and gain true happiness.

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

Using perfect logic, and a simple approach, Swamiji offers new ways of understanding and applying the knowledge of the scriptures in our daily lives. The hallmark of his lectures is the ease with which he dispels various myths and misnomers associated with the various paths of God-realization.

The discourses offered by Swamiji are specially designed for those people who have unanswered questions about spirituality, and are looking for satisfactory answers. 
Some of the questions addressed in his lectures are:

  • What is the goal of life?
  • We are all searching for happiness, yet we remain discontented. Why?
  • What is the nature of God? Why is He beyond our intellect, mind and senses?
  • What is the Grace of God? How is it attained?
  • What is sharanagati or surrender to God?
  • Why do we experience lust, anger, greed, envy, illusion etc.? How can they be conquered?
  • The Vedas mention three paths to God-realization: karm, gyan and bhakti. What is the difference between them? Who is qualified for which path?
  • Do all paths of karm, gyan and bhakti lead to the same goal or different goals?
  • Is it possible to attain God even while staying in household life? What is the karm yog of the Bhagavad Gita?
  • What is Divine love and how is it different from worldly love?
  • How can one establish a personal relationship with God?
  • What is the basis for choosing one's worshipped form of God?
  • What do the scriptures say about the need for a Spiritual Master? How do we recognize a genuine Guru?
  • What is meditation? How and when should Sadhana (devotional practice) be done ?

Singing and chanting the glories of the Lord is one of the main highlights of the programs conducted by Swamiji. He chants the sweetest bhajans that inspire devotional love, and elevate the consciousness to subliminal heights.

Shree Swamiji's has a God-gifted ability to keep all kinds of audiences enthralled and entertained through wisdom filled anecdotes, humorous stories and irrefutable logic. He has inspired innumerable people, of all ages, towards the path of God Realization, the world over. Swamiji's warmth and humility touch all those who have the fortune to have his association. In fact, his very presence radiates Grace and Bliss.
