Important Announcement

Swami Dayananda Saraswati, a renowned Saint from India will be coming to London coming October 2005 to give a series of discourses about the Eternal Truth of the Divine. At this point of time, where there is heightened tension between various communities spanning different religions, this is a great opportunity to illuminate the people about the real principle of the Divine.

We require several programme committee members and volunteers who could help us in organizing this event in London. If you are interested in participating and help us in organizing this event, please leave a comment here. Moreover, all fellow UK bloggers are welcomed to post this article in your blogs.

Swami Dayananda Saraswati was born in Tamil Nadu. He became a swami as a young man and was the assistant to Swami Chinmayananda when he took the initiative to establish Vishwa Hindu Parishad.

In 1986, Swami Dayananda Saraswati founded the Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, a Gurukula that has branches in India and the United States. Arsha Vidya Gurukulam is an institute for the traditional study of Advaita Vedanta, Yoga, Ayurveda, Jyotish, Sanskrit and other classical Hindu studies. The word Arsha means that which is from the Rishis - the great seers of ancient India. The word Vidya means knowledge. Thus, Arsha Vidya means the knowledge flowing from the Rishis. The word Gurukulam, means "family of the teacher", referring to a residential center for learning with the Teacher.

Arsha Vidya Gurukulam offers Indians and non-Indians, Hindus and non-Hindus alike an opportunity to study the profound spiritual knowledge of the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Brahma-sutras, and other classical Vedanta texts.

Swami Dayananda is currently the most revered teacher of Advaita Vedanta in the world. He also founded AIM for Seva for social work in India.

Thanks for the info. I would like to attend his discourse, though I am not sure whether I'll be around at that time.

For the time being, count me in.

Swamiji is currently visiting the US.I remember seeing a flyer about his lecture in OH.
In his early days, Swamiji had an ashram right opposite to my house in Chennai. Every evening my brother and I use to attend the HIS lectures and the bhajan's.Truly unforgettable experience.
