Mahanidhi Swami’s spiritual journey began in his early years when he was raised in a Christian family. His early education included an extensive study of the Bible. However, he found Christian theology leaving many of his questions unanswered. So, in his late teenage years, he set out in pursuit of these answers by gaining knowledge and understanding of other religions and philosophies from around the world. His relentless search for knowledge also led him to study other disciplines such as theosophy, psychology, alternative medicine, spiritual teachings of the East, Astanga-yoga, and a variety of occult sciences & mysticism. Mahanidhi Swami's search for that last piece of the puzzle that encapsulated his research finally ended after his first reading of the Bhagavad-gita, Also known as 'The Song of God'. Mahanidhi Swami is a disciple of Srila Prabhupada and currently resides at Sri Radha Kunda. He has lived in Vrindavan for many years now and for some time was the caretaker of Prabhupada's rooms at the Radha Damodara temple. He is the author of many excellent books including the peachy publication 'Art of Chanting Hare Krsna'. His deep sadhana, wonder-filled lectures and well presented books are an inspiration to senior as well as junior devotees and his detailed study of Gaudiya Vaishnava siddhanta has been of meritorious benefit.
Quotes by His Holiness Mahanidhi Swami
In bhakti, we depend on Krishna's strength, not our own.
