FOUNDER OF BHAKTI MARGA
Path of Bhakti
Paramahamsa Vishwananda is the founder of the international organisation known as ‘Bhakti Marga’, which means the ‘path of devotion’.
Paramahamsa Vishwananda personifies many facets of mastery which, both individually and collectively, set Him apart as a living expression of bhakti. All of Bhakti Marga’s efforts and offerings are dedicated to supporting His mission of awakening bhakti in everyone to live a life of devotion to God.
Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda is a Vaishnava acharya in a spiritual lineage that lovingly worships Sriman Narayana and Divine Mother through bhakti. As an acharya, He promotes Sanatana-dharma, the eternal path of loving God.
In the same time-honoured and respected tradition of the acharyas before Him, He has written commentaries on important scriptures.
Kriya Yoga Master
Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda was born a kriya-yoga Master with full awareness and mastery of all kriya-yoga techniques. Through His grace, and the grace of His guru, Mahavatar Babaji, the world is blessed with Atma Kriya Yoga.
Atma Kriya Yoga techniques cultivate bhakti, which allows you to experience and enjoy a uniquely personal relationship with the Divine.
Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda is a living satguru who is in constant union with the Divine. He didn’t achieve this state through study or labour; He was born God-realised.
The transcendent nature of the satguru’s being is not easy for the mind to understand, however. It is a mystery to be revealed and realised through the ability to live His teachings on a daily basis.
Paramahamsa Vishwananda lives bhakti with each and every breath He takes. Every action is done with the awareness and love of God. This is living bhakti.
Bhakti is not a religion; it is a way of living and a way of loving the Divine. Bhakti is not bound by dogma; it is a personal relationship that gives you the freedom to worship God in whatever form of Love you like: as a friend, a servant, a parent, or a lover.
INSPIRATION TO MANY
Many people from around the world, from all cultures and walks of life, testify to the divine acts and selfless love of Paramahamsa Vishwananda.
Such experiences are wonderful and are just the beginning. The greatest miracle is the transformation people go through, realising true love and bliss in their life. Experience it for yourself.
Nature of the Guru
Paramahamsa Vishwananda is a guru and spiritual master, but what does this mean? What are the divine qualities and how do we recognize them? In this lecture, Swami Revati will explain the meaning of ‘Paramahamsa’ and provide insight into the nature of the guru.
Paramahamsa Vishwananda’s teachings have been divided into four arms: knowledge, devotional arts, yoga & meditation and rituals. Although each arm has its own independent practices, they all work together as a holistic system, carefully designed to bring the seeker closer to God, and support one on a path of bhakti.
HIS LIFE STORY
From the very beginning, it was clear that Paramahamsa Vishwananda was not an ordinary child. Instead of playing childhood games, He spent His time praying, visiting temples and acting out religious rituals, while always living in the presence of God.
In truth, He has always been a living example of bhakti-marga, the path of devotion.
Who is Paramahamsa Vishwananda?
Paramahamsa Vishwananda was born in Mauritius in 1978. Since the day He was born, He was different. He didn't become God-realised, He was born God-realised.
After sharing (until then) unknown Divine knowledge in His first satsang in 1994, people started considering Him their Satguru and masses started gathering around Him.
Founder of Bhakti Marga
In 2005, Paramahamsa Vishwananda officially established a spiritual organisation called Bhakti Marga (path of devotion) and started spreading His mission internationally.
Kriya Yoga Master
After choosing kriya-yoga techniques best suited for today's times with His guru, Mahavatar Babaji, Paramahamsa Viswhananda introduced Atma Kriya Yoga in 2007.
Initiated as a Vaishnava acharya in 2008, Paramahamsa Vishwananda set a clear identity and path for His devotees through loving and serving Sriman Narayana.
