Developing a personal relationship with God

Please visit Swami Nikhilanand's facebook page to view the flyers for all his upcoming talks in Los Angeles in Sept - Nov 2012. (Click here)

This is a perfect speech for someone who is new to the spiritual teachings of Hinduism. In this two part series, Swami Nikhilanand explains the essence of Eastern philosophy with practical logic that relates to our everyday life. In part one, he discusses the ways that people blame or mistrust God, and how with proper knowledge, we can begin to trust and love God, instead of being angry with Him. This topic is continued in part 2.

This recording also includes chanting of verses from the Sanskrit scriptures of India, and the chanting of God's Divine names, called kirtan. Swami Nikhilanand also leads the group in a beautiful meditation, called devotional meditation, or bhakti.

Developing a personal Relationship with God - Part 2, by Swami Nikhilanand

Swami Nikhilanand is a disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj and a sanyasi teacher at JKP Radha Madhav Dham. JKP Radha Madhav Dham is a nonprofit, religious, educational, and charitable organization whose aim is to reveal the eternal knowledge of the Upnishads (Vedas), the Gita and the Bhagwatam, etc. and to impart the practical process of divine upliftment called ‘raganuga bhakti’ or ‘divine love consciousness.’

Swami Nikhilanand lives at the Radha Madhav Dham ashram, a beautiful temple and ashram on 200 acres near Austin, Texas. Born in Canada, he worked for many years as a professional wilderness guide in the remote regions of British Columbia. He took his first solo trip into the wilderness at the age of 16. At the age of 17, he left for New Zealand and Australia, where he toured on mountain bike for a year. Underlying his spirit of adventure was a deep spiritual longing. His life-long search led him to India, where he met Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj, our beloved Shree Maharajji.

Under the guidance of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, he studied Sanskrit scriptures, meditation and devotional music, and found the inner fulfillment he had been seeking.

He was given the renounced order of sanyas, and with the blessings of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, he leads chanting meditation and offers talks and workshops throughout North America. He effortlessly bridges the gap between East and West and gives us practical insight into how to improve our everyday life, inspiring us to awaken our inner spiritual potential.
