Lord Hanuman is praised as one who posseses the qualities such as Intelligence, Strength, Fame, Courage, Fearlessness, Health, Determination and excellent speech. Most importantly, Hanuman ji is the personification of the service to the Lord. In Sundara Kanda, we will learn about several of Lord Hanuman's glories through examples.
We are pleased to announce a series of 5 discourses on Sundara Kandam by Pujya Swami Shantananda ji. This event is free and open to all.
Mesmerized by Pujya Gurudev, Swami Shantananda in sixties, then Br. Raghavan, went to serve the Master for almost two years as his traveling secretary. After completing his Vedanta course in Mumbai, Swamiji traveled to Taiwan where he successfully managed his own business while teaching Vedanta part-time. Since 1992, when he was given Sannyas by Pujya Gurudev, Swamiji has dedicated his life to the full time teaching of Vedanta in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York area.
While in Taiwan Swamiji was instrumental in building Chinmaya Mission in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Later in the US, Swamiji led the creation of Chinmaya Kedar in Langhorn PA, and then Chinmaya Vrindavan in Cranbury NJ. He has over years traveled all across the North America doing Gnana Yagna on Upanishads and the Bhagwad Geeta. In 2001, Swamiji undertook and completed 50 Geeta Gnana Yagnas all around the world as his personal tribute to Param Pujya Gurudev, during that Golden Jubilee year.Swamiji is also the President of Chinmaya Mission West which in turn oversees the activities of over 48 Mission centers in the US and Canada.
