Please accept my humble obeisance. All glories to your service, Swamiji. I would like to express my deep appreciation for the opportunity you so kindly gave me at Parmarth Niketan Ashram and for your valuable time sharing on such a personal level, your wonderful discourses and illuminating kirtanas. Parmarth Niketan Ashram under your divine guidance is a true spiritual haven, lying on the holy banks of Mother Ganga in the lap of the lush Himalayas. It is no surprise that pilgrims are drawn here from all over the world. The awe-inspiring beauty of the ashram, the clear flowing Ganga, the majestic mountains, and the lush green forests will embrace and rejuvenate the entire being. I felt that the prayers and meditation done at the ashram offers comfort, inspiration and upliftment of the body, mind and spirit while also building a deeper connection with the Divine. During my peaceful stay in the ashram I was deeply inspired by your sympathetic words, selfless thoughts and kind actions. I still remember your compassionate words which resonates that religion is only unity. I admire your deeds to bring peaceful co-existence and to build a better world we live in. Your determination in life to selflessly dedication to the welfare of all, inspires numerous people all over the world and giving them positive energy. Your compassionate message to the world about the protection of the environment and to respect and live in harmony with Mother Nature are significantly encouraging. Please accept by sincere gratitude for your warm generosity and looking forward to meet you again in the near future. Om Namah Shivaya."
"Only a few seers like Pujya Swamiji can turn scars into shining stars. Thank you!"
"Thank you so much Swamiji. Your words and blessings are changing my mind and life too. Jai Maa Gange!"
"Commendable efforts and steps [are being] taken by Pujya Swamiji and Imam Ilyasiji. My humble regards to both of [them.]"
"Writing about my experience at Parmarth Niketan is like asking a mute person to describe the taste of ambrosia that he’s found after years and years of searching, finding, seeking… He would know the taste but he wouldn’t know how to express, he would probably just dance in elation to convey what he’s found… Parmarth Niketan is truly a heavenly abode in every sense… I’m sure there are various blogs, vlogs, travelogues that are available to describe its beautiful ambiance, its greenery, the peaceful vibrations, the hospitality, etc… but it's only those who’ve come and stayed here who can actually describe the true wealth of love, care, and spirituality that they have experienced at this beautiful place. The splendid Ganga Aarti touched me so deeply, Pujya Swamiji’s Darshan where Swamiji in utmost humility blesses us abundantly with so much love, and Pujya Sadhviji’s Satsang that clears every ounce of doubt that anyone may have, about the path towards the Divine (as she always says… at all levels – spiritual, scientific and experiential levels). If I may say so in my broken voice, Pujya Swamiji and Pujya Sadhviji are real embodiments of love and devotion. This experience has moved me so deeply & it is reflected in every aspect of my life…Waiting to be at the banks of Holy Mother Ganga & lotus feet of the Saints again…"
[The highpoint of our visit was] Swamiji's guidance, his words, his silence, his light.
We are speechless and my only suggestion is to keep inspiring people like you did us.
[On the Ganga Aarti]: As a family we were transported to a new realm of devotion and its translation to improving society.
[On the highpoint of their stay at Parmarth]: Our interaction with Swamiji, our discovery of his knowledge, service oriented spirituality and dedication towards Maa Ganga's purity. His approach to Swachhata is in itself a purifying experience for those meeting him.
The ambience, prayerful spirituality, the orientation towards society's needs, and Guruji's blessings together make it a blessed Ashram. Meeting Swamiji has elevated my life purposefully.
The daily aarti was magical. The yagna was profound. Meeting our beloved Muniji was beyond bliss!
I wish to express my sincere gratitude for giving us an opportunity to attend the 'Maha Aarti' and the powerful spiritual retreat tour on the banks of the Holy River Ganga and a beautiful tour at your marvelous private grounds and garden during our recent visit to Rishikesh. We feel honored to participate in the Divine Ganga Aarti at your magnificent Ashram and the religious hymns recited in praise of the Ganges have surely touched our soul. We are also thankful for including a special hymn for shalom in Hebrew and your warm word of commitment to the relations between India and Israel. We would also like to convey our heartfelt thanks to all your entire team for the excellent coordination and warm hospitality.
[The highpoint of our stay at Parmarth was] Aarti with Swamiji's soulful, devotional voice.
Excellent, peace, it is divine. Darshan of Swamiji always gives inspiration to live life with peace.
My heartiest congratulations to Swamiji and His team to take lead for Swachh India. He is very inspirational for us.
When you came to Boulder this past July, I randomly ended up at your talk at Raj Yoga…For the first time ever, listening to your words, it felt as though I was listening to myself. But better, I felt like I had so much to learn (relearn) from you! I resonated so deeply that it brought tears to my eyes.
I am grateful for all of your tireless efforts to make this world a better place. I feel very privileged to have received this special book that shares your remarkable journey from which we are all the grateful beneficiaries.
All gratitude to you for your marvelous service to God and man, most especially your spiritual leadership and your active concern for healing the environment and serving the poor and downtrodden.
I wanted to thank you for such an incredible weekend at your ashram. To be honest I was a bit skeptical at first when my parents told me I would be spending a week at an ashram in India with little internet connectivity, but my time spent at the ashram was extremely meaningful and surpassed any and all expectations I had!...I feel like something inside me has changed. Listening to your wise words and advice really helped me put things into perspective...I am so grateful to you for making my family and me feel like we were at home and taking so much time out of your busy schedule to meet with us and bless us.
I am very touched and impressed with all your quotes and values. I am very grateful always.
I met you in Monroeville, PA over 30 years ago...I was asked to sit with him and assist in helping him pronounce the English words to the ceremony beforehand. At 20, I was a young silly American and did not realize with whom I sat. However, that day has never left me…His presence of peace I can still sense…
Darshan of Guruji Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji - his voice and presence is very inspiring and divine.
