appreciations of Radhanath Swami

  • “Brother Swami is strong. I have a great love and respect for him.”
    Cornel West, American philosopher, academic, social activist, author and public intellectual
  • “He’s a beautiful fellow. He’s got the answer. I’m a spiritual gent and increasingly that’s the level I want to vibrate on, were it not for my crazed lust for sex and glamour.”
    Russell Brand, English comedian, actor, radio host, author, and activist
  • “I respect my friend, Shri Radhanath Swamiji who pursued his spiritual journey experiencing unity in diversity which is a part and parcel of Indian culture, met various spiritual heads in his journey and gained knowledge of Adhyaatma Vidya progressively and then culminating his journey from the seeker to the state of the seer.”
    B.K.S. Iyengar, preeminent teacher of Yoga and author of  “Light on Yoga,” “Light on Pranayama,” “Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali”
  • “I have interacted with Sri Radhanath since so many years. His simplicity, soft dealings, sober nature, great devotion to Sri Krishna and his initiation in preaching of devotional service has made me feel special pride in him. I pray and hope that people may get great inspiration in their life from such a spiritual practitioner.”
    Sri Pejawar Swami, (Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji), the current Swami, or pontiff, of the Pejavara Matha,  of Udupi, founded by Sri Madhvacharya, the 13th century pioneer of the Bhakti Movement and chief proponent of the Dwaita Vedanta Philosophy

After 7 months in India, Radhanath Swami returns to the Bhakti Center.  Join us on two Tuesday nights in May to hear from an expert story-teller of the timeless wisdom of the Bhakti tradition.

Radhanath Swami is a Vaishnava sanyassin (a monk in a Krishna-bhakti lineage) and teacher of the devotional path of Bhakti-yoga. He is author of The Journey Home, a memoir of his search for spiritual truth, and the New York Times Bestseller The Journey Within – Exploring the Path of Bhakti. His teachings draw from the sacred texts of India such as The Bhagavad-gitaSrimad Bhagavatam, and Ramayana, and aim to reveal the practical application of the sacred traditions, while focusing on the shared essence which unites apparently disparate religious or spiritual paths.
