I am a 69 year old woman who has arthritis, osteoporosis and fibromyalgia. I have already had two hip replacements and double foot susion surgeries with metal implants. My doctors recommend spinal
fusion of the S!, L4, L5….I have been in constant pain am currently taking at least a dozen strong pain medications to no avail. After having attended one workshop with Swami Mukundananda I slept for the first time in years without medication and can move with less impairment without a cane. I’m thrilled with the improvement and look forward to more exposure to this kindly, awesome practitioner of Yoga principles, chanting and movement. Since I cannot travel by air at this time, it is a special Blessing to find such peace and healing by this kindly Swami. Thank you and thank you Saroj Primlani for driving me to the first presentation on 4/13/2013.

Swami Mukundananda is continually inspiring. I love the yoga as it takes me deep inward and prepares my body to be able to relax into a devotional stillness where I can focus deeply inward and absorb the chanting and philosophy that follows. I can’t wait to return for more.

A great opportunity to reboot our mortal system, exercise our physique & focus towards our goals. “Retreat”makes one feel utmost happy by singing, dancing, exercising & moreover, devotional.

It was through Swamiji’s lectures and association that we have come to the retreat a second time, and have also become a JKYOG life member. We consider ourselves really blessed to be a part of this occasion.

The profound knowledge and the methodical, analytical way Swamiji explains spiritual knowledge is very soothing for the soul and mind.
- Vijay Rege (Jackson Height, NY)
We first met and attended Swamiji’s lectures in Wayne, NJ and we were so impressed by the depth of his knowledge that we wanted more of it. His method of teaching is extremely genuine and comes from the bottom of his heart. I was highly inspired, and he showed us the path to connect with God to attain the ultimate happiness.

Mind-blowing, attractive and intellectual.

Great. Swamiji has a very good quality of explaining complex matters in simple terms with lots of day-to-day illustrations to drive the matter home. I truly enjoyed the lectures.

So phenomenal that I don’t know what to do. I have so much gratitude. I feel so much has been lifted off me. It is such a gift to be here. Swamiji really cares for you in such a personal way that it is astonishing. The first night when I woke up in the morning, I felt Swamiji had stretched himself to cover all of us while we were sleeping.
- Nancy (Kalyani) Carter (NYC, NY)
Swamiji’s lectures were powerful and sweet. I learned a lot from lectures. Swamiji is very simple. Swamiji devote his time to the people and answers their questions patiently.
- Khimrajie Basoleo
I am proud to have been associated with this program which turned out really well .
You are a great orator with good command of your field, the scriptures, Sanskrit Language and the other various skills required to mesmerize any audience and hold them spellbound.
- Sunil Kumar (Commissioner, Central Excise – Delhi)
The meditations and subtle-body relaxation were really a great experience. Swamiji’s lectures are very inspiring. Even without asking questions, many of them were answered. It was as if Swamiji heard my inner voice!
- Vaidehi Kannan, MD
When I first saw and heard Swamiji at the Sunnyvale Hindu Temple, I could not but help make a comparison with Swami Vivekananda. His excellent clarity of thought combined with the depth of divine knowledge of ancient Hindu scriptures is just one of aspect his multi-faceted personality. The best part of his personality is his teaching skills to bring forth clear the understanding, importance and relevance of the path of Bhakti. Swamiji gives anecdotes based on modern scientific logic, day-to-day common sense apart from explaining the rigorous analyses given in our holy scriptures. Swamiji’s impeccable sense of humor and animated personality enlivens the whole atmosphere. Swamiji made this whole experience even better by adding yoga meditation and beautiful live Bhajans. No wonder, people came in droves filling up the entire temple hall paying rapt attention to Swamiji’s speeches during the entire eight day program
- Madan Joshi, USA
We never thought it was so easy to be engaged in Bhajans and meditation for so long without any thoughts of our daily mundane activities.
Initially, we were curious to meet an IIT and IIM graduate preaching God’s message, but after listening to him we realised he was much more than a Ph.D in spiritual science!
- Hari and Swapna, CT
Swamiji’s simplicity is beyond explanation!
- Karuna Krishan Gulati, VA
Swamiji’s simple practical examples and logical explanations to implement vedic knowledge in practical life, digests easily in the human brain and goes straight to the heart. It instantly moves you from the state of knowing to the state of being. A transformation of self like I ‘ve never seen.
- Aruna Kannan, Dallas, USA
Swamiji’s one week program at the India Cultural Society Hindu Temple & Mahatma Gandhi Centre in Wayne New Jersey was a soul moving experience. I thought I would just come for the Saturday and Sunday program. During the week it would be hard for me to juggle my medical practice and be there from 6pm-9pm. I not only made it every night; I was looking forward to it all day! The whole week was really a changing life experience for me. Swamiji’s message and communication style is not only very simple to understand, but practical. I can’t wait for his visit in 2009. I will re-schedule all my patients well in advance this time.
- Dr. DN Das, USA
He has simplified my understanding of Hinduism, who is God, how to pray, how to always remember God during the day. There is a certain level of peace and tranquillity which I now have in my life; that was not there before. Next time he comes, I am going to bring all my friends and family!
- S. Shah, USA
Like God is an “Ocean of Bliss”, Swamiji is an ocean of spiritual knowledge. I learnt about the “Vedas” which is not taught in schools. Swamiji has managed to wake up the inner soul in me, and show us all the right path to attain God. I am blessed to get such an opportunity.
- Ramesh Dugyala, MA
Swamiji has deep knowledge and thorough understanding of vedic/Hindu scriptures. Swamiji is a true devotee. He brings the presence of Shree Radha Krishna amongst us. It is as if we can touch and speak to them. I feel so good just seeing his smiling face and his eyes.
- Janki Keshava, Chicago
From being a God fearing person, I am now a God loving person. I was amazed by the knowledge, simplicity, and down to earth approach of Swamiji and his Divine lectures.
- Sudharshan Devaraju, NY
Swamiji’s lectures at Shree Vishnu Temple, the IIT DVDs and YouTube lectures have brought me here. It is very inspiring to hear his lectures and they helps us understand the purpose of life.
- Srinivas Kasthoori, MD
Swamiji’s presence is always felt everywhere. His concise, clear, and logical presentations with conviction inspire everyone. He truly has influenced my life and the way of thinking.
- Amit Dharia, Dallas
How can this small mind explain about such a knowledgeable saint? I do not have the words to express or write about his qualities. Always smiling, full of energy, always listening to everyone!
- Poonam and Prem Baweja, Houston
Listening to Swamiji is like slow poison. You don’t realize its impact till you dwell upon it later and actually start implementing his advice in daily activities.
- R. Patel, USA
Swamiji’s lectures are very easy to understand, although they are very profound and filled with ancient wisdom. His examples and stories took the message straight to our heart.”
- Venkatesh Srinivasan, CT
In the spring of 2001, I attended a stimulating discourse given by Swami Mukundananda . The Swami discussed the Hindu concept of Karma Yoga, or working without attachment. The experience greatly enhanced my perception of the Hindu religion and broadly extended my cultural views.
