From the first minutes of seeing Shri Swami Vishwananda she felt such a strong connection and love towards him that it changed her life completely. Though her children were still young, she answered her Gurudev’s call and very soon took the vows of brahmacharini devoting her life solely to God. At the age of 45 the new stage of traveling and spreading the message of unconditional love started for her.
Her only goal is that Gurudev’s will and love might always flow through her. That is how her presence and guidance helps people to transform themselves and feel their divinity. She says, what is lacking nowadays in humanity is honesty towards ourselves and that is what stopping people from changing and from loving God naturally. This honesty is only possible, when one does not judge oneself or anybody else.
SWAMI VISHWA RANGA RAMANUJA
He was initiated by Sri Ranga Narayana Jeeyar Swami of the Ramanuja Mutt in Sri Rangam in 2012. After meeting Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda, intuitively he knew inside that this is where he belongs. He has travelled extensively teaching and spreading the divine word of the Bhagavad Gita, Shreemad Bhagavatam Bhagavatam and kirtan.
Swami Vishwa Ranga Ramanuja has been residing between Chidambaram and Vrindavan ashram for 3 years. He now resides in Shree Giridhar Dham Ashram in Vrindavan and is spreading Guruji’s mission in India.
In 2012 she left her social job in nature conservancy organization and fully devoted herself to Guruji and Bhakti Marga. In November 2014 she moved to Vrindavan together with Swamini Vishwamohini to start the first Bhakti Marga Ashram here. She was initiated as Rishika on 3rd April 2020.
“The only real measure if you are advancing on the spiritual path is how you change. People who know me for many years report a drastic change in my behavior, reactions and way of thinking into a much more accepting and loving way. The inner measure is stability of joy and satisfaction with life, independently from what circumstances you are in. Many times I wanted to run away from Vrindavan and from the duties I was given, because I thought that the cause of my struggles is outside of myself, it is in the conditions that I am put in. And I am forever grateful to Guruji for taking me through difficult times and breaking the wrong concepts in my mind, because that made me free from so many things. It also made it possible for me to love sincerely, and this is the greatest Gift Guruji is ready to give to everyone – unconditional divine Love inside of our own Selves.”
At the age of 12, Guruji was introduced into his life in 2005, and he had the first physical meeting with Guruji in 2010 in Kenya. From the beginning he knew in his heart that this was the path meant for him and after completing his studies, he received the blessing of serving God for the rest of his life in 2015 as a brahmachari. He then moved to Paramahamsa Vishwananda’s Ashram in Vrindavan in April 2018 and was later initiated as the first Rishi in India on 3rd April 2020.
“My life with Guruji and to be given the opportunity to serve Him has been the biggest blessing I could ever have in any life. He gives a direct experience of Gods love and His willingness to take you back to where you belong by any means possible, especially when you live in Vrindavan you can see this. He said to me once, ‘If you can live in Vrindavan, you can live anywhere in the world, it’s a place of tests’. Here you can experience God first hand, because He is everywhere, and you’re constantly reminded of Him, which again is the Guru’s grace that He allows us to experience this. There is nothing greater than the Guru.”
