Sannyasa Deeksha Guru
Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati
Vedanta Course

Swami Jnanananda has been a disciple of Pujya Swamiji since 1976. He completed Swamiji’s resident Vedanta course at Piercy, California (1979-82), and subsequently founded Arsha Vidya Ontario in Toronto, Canada where he taught Vedanta from 1983-86. In 1986, Swamiji joined fellow students to help Pujya Swamiji establish Arsha Vidya Gurukulam in Saylorsburg, PA. For more than fifteen years, he has served in various capacities at the Gurukulam, and was the General Manager. He was also manager for the first six months of the establishment of the Arsha Vidya Gurukulam in Coimbatore, India. A gifted teacher with a remarkable assimilation of the essential message of Vedanta, Swamiji enjoys sharing his understanding in bi-monthly Bhagavad Gita classes at the Gurukulam. The simplicity with which he unfolds the essence of the teaching, and the depth and clarity of his own vision, make the essence of Vedanta easily accessible to the listener. A sampradayavit (one who knows the tradition), his teaching is further testimony to Pujya Swamiji’s capacity to transfer the vision of nonduality and ensure the continuation of the knowledge that frees one from samsara.
