SWAMI AVSHESHANANDJI GRACES THE SANAATAN DHARMA MANDIR OF NEW YORK
H.H. Maha Mandaleshwar Dr. Swami Avsheshanand (MA in Hindi, Political Science, Sociology) & Ph. D), visited the Sanaatan Dharma Mandir of New York in mid-October, during his annual fund-rasier trip to the USA. SwamiJi, who hails from Vrindavan, India, manages several mandirs in different parts of India. He also manages the famous Geeta Ashram in Gandhi Marg, Vrindavan, where he is involved in great charity work for overall improvement of daily life for other swamis and the general public in those communities.
SwamiJi is an extraoridinary human being and an extremely great, living example of God existing inside of man by serving his fellow mankind selflessly, and with great love and devotion. He is very simple, yet so Godly, humble, unassuming, kind-hearted, and blessed with a wealth of spiritual knowledge that he shares with everyone on the way. SwamiJi is a true beautification of what a person becomes after spending his/her entire life living every conscious moment just for the Supreme Godhead and for service to humanity. He truly embodies the saying "Humanity is the highest of religion."
SwamiJi's calling to serve God and mankind came at the tender age of 10-years-old, when he renounced the comfort of his family and home to walk the spiritual path and to serve God. He has been doing just that since then.
SwamiJi graced the Sanaatan Dharma Mandir on three ocassions during the Nauratri observations and delivered some vibrant kathas on the true meaning of life. The devotees at the mandir were truly blessed to be in the presence of such a saintly personality. We thank him so much from the depths of our hearts for his auspicous visits and practical, yet deep moral messages. He was a true spiritual "activator" for the devotees at the mandir.
At the Geeta Ashram, SwamiJi provides accommodation and meals to visitors on a daily basis free of cost. He also manages the Geeta Kutir Tapovan in Haridwar, the Geeta Computer Centre and the Geeta Kutir Tapovan in Rudra Prayag.
Pandit Yoga Ramnarain met SwamiJi in India when he went there with his family for a six weeks teerth to some of the holy places. He is a close confidant of SwamiJi and made the wise decision to introduce SwamiJi to the devotees at Sanaatan Dharma Mandir of New York. Pandit Yoga, who is a close confidant to SwamiJi, is also a big contributor to SwamiJi's charity work in India. PanditJi said that USD$200.00 can provide meals and clothings to over 300 swamis in India. SwamiJi also provide meals and clothing for the children in the communities there.
Anyone is welcome to contribute towards SwamiJi's great charity work in India. If someone would like to sponsor the feeding and clothing of the 300 swamis in India for their birthdays, anniversaries or any special ocassions, they're free to do so. It is just one phone call or email away. The blessings of such great Puja will follow the person and their family for all eternity
