Spreading the message of Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj and to live by it, is the constant preoccupation of  Pujya Sri. Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj. His Life and each breath have been dedicated to spreading the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Vedanta through simple and practical teachings of Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj and Gurumaharaj Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj. Wherever he went, he talked about the simple message of Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj- “Serve, Love, Meditate & Realize” and guidelines of daily Sadhana through Gurudev’s “Twenty Spiritual Instructions”. Devotees welcomed him here in the WEST  for his simplicity, sincerity, and down to earth simple living, a Yoga way of Living, in the true sense. Pujya Swamiji carries a spark of love, light & joy. He kindles and inspires people, whoever comes in contact with HIM. 

It was always a joy for the devotees here in the West (USA, Canada & UK) to receive Pujya Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj's Satsang and blessings all these years. In fact, their love brought Sri Swamiji amongst their midst Year after Year for the past 25 years. The Organizing Committee of Adhyatma Tour worked together in the spirit of Karma Yoga and coordinated Swamiji's Satsang programs at various centers for the benefit of many, and that is how Adhyatma Tours unfolded beautifully, as per the WILL of God Gurudev..............They felt blessed to get the opportunity to be a tiny part (not even) in the whole of Swamiji's Mission of service to Mankind.

Sri Swamiji's satsangs got organized all across the USA (East to West & North to South), Canada & UK. Over the period of time, Swamiji visited so many places that it is impossible to keep account of name a few big centers Chicago, Detroit (Michigan), Toledo (Ohio), Bloomington (Indiana), New York, New Jersey & vicinity area, Virginia, Anoopam Mission (Pennsylvania), Washington DC,  Charlotte (NC), Atlanta (GA), Tampa (Florida), Houston (Texas), Las Cruces (New Mexico),  Corps Christi (Texas), Los Angeles (California), San Jose (California), Tuscan-Phoenix (Arizona), Milwaukee, Madison (WI), Fairfield (Iowa), Calgary (Canada), Winnipeg (Canada), Toronto (Canada), London ( UK), Bristol (UK), Surry (UK).

HIS Divine Satsang and Yoga teaching has brought joy, peace & bliss to countless spiritual aspirants and yoga enthusiasts in the West, India & over the Globe. Pujya Swamiji's day typically started early with morning yoga sessions, home satsangs, home visits, bhiksha to honor devotees' wishes, evening satsangs, special requests, press interviews, visit to sick ones, prayer for the depressed, and more till late at night most of the days. His Mission is service to humanity, service to known and unknown. Countless devotees of the Lord took benefits of His holy Presence at various centers. Pujya Swamiji's wisdom teaching has inspired sincere spiritual seekers to seek within, study the scripture, do Japa regularly, and concentrate on their personal Sadhana in their upward, forward, and Godward journey in the path of GOD realization. His prayers healed the sick ones and brought solace. Swamiji's simple analogy...........of a bucket full of dirty water, get automatically cleanse if, you start pouring in the clean water. In the same manner, by pouring in the pure thoughts, Godly thoughts, virtuous & ethical living will automatically achieve the Antahkarana Suddhi and that would lead to INWARD & UPWARD Journey to merge with the ever effulgent SELF. How potent & useful to practice in daily Living!  

People asked Pujya Swamiji the secret of His ever Vibrant, Radiant & Joyful nature? "Abide In The SELF", He says………." In all conditions, I am Bliss, Bliss, Bliss Absolute"……Adopt, Adjust & Accommodate" ……And each breath of His is in the remembrance of GOD and in the service of His Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj & Guru Bhagavan Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj. Their ever-flowing Grace is the force behind everything.....Guru Smarna is unbroken in Swamiji's being. Yes, that is what we observed being with HIM in proximity during HIS Adhyatma Tours.

From Devotees Group in the WEST ...........

Here we bring you just the glimpses of the core feelings of love & gratitude expressed by devotees, organizers, hosts, yoga attendees, the press reporters, sick and ailing and more... in so many different words. It is overwhelming and what could be the better time than now to share them with all while we are celebrating Pujya Swamiji's Amrut Mahotsav!

"With the Grace of Divine, we got the opportunity to host Pujya Swamiji on His first visit to the USA and thereafter for the past twenty-five years we are fortunate to receive HIS Satsang and Blessings in abundance. The peculiar joy that we experience in HIS presence is inexplicable and difficult to describe. The mere presence of His lifts us to a different plane of spirituality and enlightenment that lingers on. We feel being bathed in love and purity. We are touched by His radiating divinity and the multifaceted magnetic personality. How could you describe Infinite with finite Words! We feel that Unmanifest has found an able instrument in Him to manifest His Grace & Divinity."..........."Being with Him in close proximity during coordinating the Adhyatma Tours all these years, you observe how immeasurable devotion Pujya Swamiji has for His Gurudev! At every moment, whether He is thinking, talking, delivering discourses, eating, you observe that Guru Smarana is unbroken. HE is breathing and living for Gurudev...........Then, you start seeing GURU's presence in your life at each step of the way and HE assumes different forms for you then little i melts away and sevak Bhav emerges out from within. It is such a wonderful experience ! It is all Guru's Grace. Jai Sivananda! Jai Chidananda! Jai Adhyatmananda!" - Minal & Bharat Naik
