The State of Uttar-Pradesh India -- North is home to Uttarkashi and South East the little town Chitrakoot exile and haven to Avatar Shri Ram.

Chitrakoot was the home for Yogiraj Chitranand Jansi -- Guru of Gagangiri Maharaj.

Many SHAKTI worshippers are found in this area but so was one of India’s greatest jewel Swami Brahmananda Sarasvati.

Not only was Swamiji very good - looking, He was highly educated on Vedanta and the science of Yoga. Swamiji was nominated for Shankaracharya of Jyotirmaypitam Himalayas on the way to Badrinath.A seat that was vacant for three hundred years.

Swamiji through out His life lived on germinated gram seeds with a bit of salt.

Swamiji was and exponent on Sri Vidya,followed only by accomplished Sanskrit scholar of India. It is a path that joins Raja Yoga,Kundalin Yoga,Bhakti Yoga and Advaita Vedanta. There are very few scholars that understand these spiritual poems. Sri Vidya is probably practiced by seven to twelve Masters.

In this science Sri Vidya the body is seen as the temple the inner resident Atman as God. A human being is like a miniature universe, and by understanding this, one can comprehend the macrocosm.

Swami Brahmananda is one of the rare Siddha who had the knowledge of Sri Vidya.His authoritative knowledge on the Upanishads and Shankara’s commentary was superb. Swamiji was bestowed a unique ability to tutor attractively the combination of Bhakti and Advaita system.

Swamiji had a Sri Yantra made out of rubies and explained how to worship it. It is interesting to note how great sages channel their spiritual mental and physical resources to the ultimate goal.

Swamij's life's works has a profound impact on my journey of spiritual adventure !!!!.
