Sannyasa Deeksha Guru
Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati

Swamini Ramananda is a long-time disciple and student of Swami Dayananda Saraswati. After having earned a masters degree in Experimental Psychology, a Masters in Counseling and a PHD in Psychology, Swamini became a professor of Psychology in Pennsylvania teaching a variety of Psychology courses for over 25 years. However, she states that her real education began when she met and studied with Swami Dayanandaji.

Swamini moved to India in 1995 when Swami Dayananda began an intensive 3½ year residential course in Sanskrit and Vedanta at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. After having attended the 3½ year course with Pujya Swamiji, Swamini continued living and teaching in India in either Coimbatore or Rishikesh for 11 years. She has been teaching Vedanta and Sanskrit since 1998 in India and in the USA. Currently, she spends much of her time in her ashram-residence, Arsha Jnana Sthana, in Pennsylvania near East Stroudsburg and teaches Vedanta, Meditation and Sanskrit in the Stroudsburg and Saylorsburg area.
Because Swamini Ramananda lived and taught in India and USA, she is comfortable teaching both Indians as well as Westerners. Her Vedanta and Sanskrit classes are conducted weekly in the Stroudsburg area.
