Swami Mukundanand is that rarest of scholars who not only has distinguished material degrees- from world renowned IIT and IIM – and profound spiritual knowledge from the foremost Spiritual Master, Jagadguru Shri Kripalu ji Maharaj, but also the purity and devotion that stem out of his love and surrender to Shri Radha Krishna.
Swami Mukundanand finished his B.Tech. from the world-renowned Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. He then completed his MBA from the equally distinguished Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta. After that he worked for some time with one of India’s topmost industrial house.
However, material education did not quench his thirst for knowing the Absolute Truth. The longing for God was so strong that he renounced his career and began travelling throughout India as a sanyasi.
Ultimately his search took him to the lotus feet of his Spiritual Master, Jagadguru Shri Kripaluji Maharaj. He was overawed by the unfathomable scriptural knowledge and ocean of Divine love that he saw manifest in his Gurudev.
Under the guidance of Jagadguru Shri Kripalu ji Maharaj, he practiced intense sadhana while residing at the ashram. He also extensively studied the Vedic scriptures, and the Indian and Western systems of philosophy. On completion of his studies, his Guru entrusted him with the key task of propagating the ancient knowledge about the Eternal Truth, the world over. Ever since, he became Maharaj ji’s disciple and a preacher, Swami ji has been travelling far and wide, awakening hundreds of thousands of Seekers. Using perfect logic, and a simple-yet-scientific approach, Swami ji offers new ways of understanding and applying the knowledge of the Scriptures (from the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavatam, Puranas, Bhagavad Geeta, and other Eastern and Western scriptures) in our daily lives.
The hallmark of his speech is the ease with which he dispels various myths and misnomers associated with the various paths of God-realization and the ability to penetrate even the toughest minds and convince them with his depth and scriptural veracity. Another special feature about his lectures is that he establishes every spiritual truth through scriptural quotations, irrefutable logic and humorous real-life illustrations. His wisdom filled anecdotes, humorous stories and clarity has the audience both enthralled and entertained for the entire duration of his lecture! Swami Mukundanand has been delivering religious discourses for the last twenty four years, as a preacher of the Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat. Along with Swami Prem Yogi, Swami Mukundanand is the co-founder of the Jagadguru Kripalu Yog trust.
In India, Swami ji attracts huge audiences. His simple, scientific and interesting presentation of the philosophy is so powerful that it has changed the lives of thousands of people. He often tours outside India as well. He has inspired thousands of people in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong, where his visit is always anxiously awaited. Swami ji visits to the USA evoke a tremendous response in every city that he visits. His lectures cover the teachings of the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavatam, Puranas, Bhagavad Geeta, Ramayan, and other Eastern and Western philosophies, revealing the simple and straightforward way of God-realization which can be practised by anyone.
Swami ji’s warmth and humility touch all those who have the fortune to have his association. In fact, his very presence radiates Grace and Bliss. Those who have heard Swami Mukundananda will know that it is indeed a rare treat for spiritual seekers in Singapore to be able to hear him and have his association.
