Amrut Mahotsav Souvenir

"A great son (sun) of India Adhyatma-Jyoti Sri Swami Adhyatmananda Saraswati an "adarsh" yati & Saint of holy matrubhoomi Bharatvarsha."

these are the words of HIS Master H. H. Sri Swami ChidanandaJi Maharaj.

"What can I share about my life journey at this age of 75?  What is my message? 

"My Life is My Message."........."Don't be afraid of adversities, they make you strong". 

Just as the deep-rooted tree stands tall in spite of the calamities in the form of severe storms, tornadoes, hail storms, or torrential rain, I have faced many adversities, ups & downs, impediments, agony, along the journey of 50 years of my monastic life and came out strong. Life has given me exuberance, joy, bubbling energy. Awakening of inner SELF lead me to spread the Glories of the DIVINE. Look at Nature, there is Fall & Spring, there is Sunrise & Sunset, there is Ebb & Flow. It is the Law of Nature. Ups & down is a part of Life. Don't be afraid of adversities, they make you strong. In all situations, be rooted in the Absolute Truth, Abide in the SELF, sing HIS Glories, Surrender at the holy feet of your Guru. Stick to the path guided by your Guru. Chant the Guru Mantra with unwavering faith. Hold on to Hari-Nama, the Lord's name is the solution for all the trials and tribulations of Life. Intensify your faith only on one thought " I am Thine, Thou art Mine, Thy will be done".  “O God, I am Thine, Thy wish is mine as I have none”.  Guru's Grace is unfailing; it is ever ready to help you. I have experienced in my life, you can too. The secret of my joy in life (of 75 years) is unbroken Guru Smarana, faith in my GURU, abiding at the Holy feet of my GURU. Ever-flowing Grace & Blessings of my Guru is the supreme joy of my Life." -  (This is from message delivered  by Brahmleen H. H. Sri Swami Adhyatmananda Maharaj on  the occasion of  His 75  Birthday Celebrations on  May 3, 2020)

"WILL Power Wins ALL Powers".  Be cheerful. Be peaceful. Be Blissful. Enjoy your present moments and be with your family, eat together, pray together. Pray fervently, sincerely, and wholeheartedly. Prayer elevates the mind. It fills the mind with purity. Have perfect faith in the Lord's name. His name is your sole support and refuge. Call HIM by any name Ishwar, Allah, Jehovah, Ahura Mazda, Zande vats, Waheguru, Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Rama, Krishna, Durga, Kali, Ganesh, or Shirdi Saibaba or any other. In case you are initiated into Guru Mantra, do Japa of Guru Mantra with faith and sincerity."

“Each activity of Yogi should bring him near to the eternal unfailing beauty of the Soul. This is a real sense and high value of Yoga. Yoga is like a vast sky which can envelop everyone, those who want peace & harmony”.

"Yoga is eternal life in the soul or spirit. It transforms a man into divinity. It brings a message of hope to the forlorn, joy to the depressed, strength to the weak, and knowledge to the ignorant. Yoga way of Life brings happiness of sound mind in a sound body. Yogic living implies discriminative living. Yoga is equanimity, equipoise, or equilibrium. It is the secret master-key to open the realms of eternal bliss and deep abiding peace".

"Key to Bliss" - Denting of I (ego), Surrendering to the Lord and Selfless Service; are the true ways to achieve Bliss, lasting peace and real happiness"

-  Brahmleen H. H. Sri Swami Adhyatmananda 

How simple, How sublime, How Divine are these Messages! How precious are these messages now when Pujya Swamiji is no longer with us in the Physical form! He is free from the bondage of the body and liberated now and has merged in the Infinite. He is with us in the Spirit.

Pujya Swamiji carried a spark of love, light & joy. He kindled and inspired people, whoever came in contact with Him. His Life and each breath were 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 Sri. Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj, “Serve, Love, Meditate & Realize” and guidelines of daily Sadhana through Gurudev’s "Twenty Spiritual Instructions". Devotees welcomed Him in the East & the West and all over the Globe for his simplicity, sincerity, and love for teaching Yoga way of life.........People asked Pujya Swamiji the secret of His ever Vibrant, Radiant & Joyful nature? "Abide In The SELF", He said………." In all condition I am Bliss, Bliss, Bliss Absolute"……Adopt, Adjust & Accommodate" ……And each breath of His, was in the remembrance of GOD and in the service to Humanity, service to known & unknown. Revered Swamiji was a living example of the teachings of his Gurudev Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj. He was a Yogi, Vedantin, and Devotee all in one. Swamiji’s discourses were wisdom outpourings coming from decades of personal experience of leading the spiritual life.

Personally, our core sentiments of love and gratitude for Pujya Swamiji Maharaj are beyond what words can express. With the grace of Divine, we got the opportunity to host His Holiness Sri Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj on His first visit to the USA in 1995 and thereafter for the past twenty-five years we were fortunate to receive His Satsang and blessings in abundance, until He breathed the last, even from the hospital bed HE sent a video clip on May 3, 2021, expressing HIS love and blessings. HE brought us a life-size photo of Gurudev Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj and established HIS living presence and we sit at HIS holy FEET right here in our home.........Being with Him in close proximity during coordinating the Adhyatma Tours to the West (USA, UK & Canada) all these years, you observe how immeasurable devotion Sri Swamiji had for his Gurudev! You observe that Guru Smarana is unbroken, whether He is thinking, talking or delivering discourses. then, you start seeing God Gurudev’s presence in your life at each step of the way, at every moment and you realize that He is the“Kartaharta”Naham Karta  Haruhi Karta then, little i melts away and inner joy springs forth from within, you are peaceful, you are under His protection & everything is wonderful! It is all Guru's Grace!

Pujya Sri Swamiji was a world-renowned Yogacharya who conducted over 800 yoga camps throughout the world and trained tens of thousands of students in Yoga, Pranayama, and Meditation. Swamiji designed Yoga Teachers' Training Course (YTTC), a comprehensive  twenty days residential program  through Sivananda Institute of  Vedanta -Yoga Academy (SIVA) for the training of Yoga teachers which is conducted twice during the year. Swamiji has conducted more than 45 YTTC which is recognized by Gujarat University and he has trained more than 1000 yoga teachers. These teachers render both preventive and curative aspects of yoga teaching for the well-being of body and mind across humanity around the world and are instrumental in spreading ancient Indian Culture and rich heritage.

 Governor of Gujarat, Om Prakash Kohli has presented HIM the title of "Glory of Gujarat" in the month of January 2017 on behalf of the Indian Council of Social welfare (ICSW) Gujarat state branch. This award is given to HIM for HIS dedication and distinguishes contribution in the field of Yoga, Meditation as well as for spreading the Religious, Cultural and Spiritual Awareness. Swamiji received the “Gujarat Ratna Gaurav Award” in 2019.  Swamiji was a great missionary on the blood donation front and affirms his faith in “Donate blood and save a life”. Swamiji was instrumental in organizing about 300 blood donation camps and he himself donated blood 117 times and was honored by the Governor of Gujarat as a centurion blood donor. His love for Tree & Ecology was great. Swamiji has planted more than 10 million saplings and plants on this planet and has rendered great service to Mother Earth for ecological balance.

Countless devotees all over India and over the globe are grieving for the Physical loss of their beloved Swamiji Maharaj. Devotees at the Ashram has lost their beloved Swamiji Maharaj, Nation has lost a spiritual leader and the world has lost Yoga Guru. He is free from the bondage of the body and liberated now and has merged in the Infinite. He is with us in the Spirit and will continue to inspire us & guide us. OM Shanti!

With peace, prayers & OM,

"I am heartbroken with the sad news of Swami Adhyatmanandaji left the body, so early. He was my close friend, my Gurubhai, my support. He was a favorite disciple of Guru Maharaj Sri  Swami Chidananda JI Maharaj..... He was a master organizer, a karmayogi &more, all in one. Whatever you say, how much you say about him is less, speech stops,....Jai Ho Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj! Jai ho Swami Chidananda JI Maharaj! Jai ho Swami Adhyatmanandji Maharaj!"  - H. H. Sri Swami Premanandaji Maharaj (Uttarkashi, Divine Life Society)


"Swami Adhyatmanandaji was favorite of (pat Sishya) Gurumaharaj Swami ChidanandaJI Maharaj.....He was like Hanuman to Lord Rama." - Revered Sri Swami Ramswarupananda (Divine Life Society, Odissa)


"Ever joyful, loving, yogi, supreme Bhakta, Jnani, Samanvay-yogi all in one. He was giving joy to one and all, who came in contact with him......Swamiji Maharaj, where are you going to go? You are here, the body came and left, your are here and now, to that Divine immortal Atman, we give Shraddhanjali. Pranams to you Swamiji Maharaj, Jai ho!

"The state of Gujarat honored him with the "Glory of Gujarat" but I would say he is the glory of Bharat-Vrash, glory of mother India, glory of Sanatan Dharma and glory of the whole world. When you glorify Swami Adhyamanandaji you glorify Swami Krishnanandji, you glorify Swami Chidanandji and you glorify Gurudev Swami Sivanandji Maharaj. As a student, I have interacted with Swamji since my student career many time I have interacted and then after also becoming a monk Swamiji has been always support to me." -  Sri Swami Brahmnisthananda 


"My heart is heavy for this loss. Swamiji was a divine light walking through the world. He served so many and with such grace, always selfless and caring. He would help anyone who asked. I attended the online Memorial. It was beautiful and a true tribute to his being.

While Swamiji may no longer be here with us in the physical form, he is certainly with us forever in our hearts and minds, our memories and through His teachings. The greatest way that we can honor him is by living the way he taught. Compassion, kindness, discipline, devotion, these are what he taught and to live in their light is to live in His.

I pray for India every day. Covid 19 has taken far too many of our loved ones."

Tribute from Param Pujya Madhavpriyadasji Swami of SVGP

Shivanand Ashram, Amdavad

Blessed Self,
Hari Om. Salutations. Om Namo Narayanaya.

The news of the Mahasamadhi of Pujya Swami Adhyatmananda ji Maharaj was received at the least expected time. This loss is not just to Shivanand Ashram, Amdavad, but also for the Sadhu Samaj at large.

Pujya Swami ji Maharaj has been a champion of Yoga and the Bharateeya Culture, not only in Amdavad but also in the entire world, where he travelled tirelessly spreading the message of healthy spiritual living. His was a very cheerful and loving presence, who would embrace everyone! At his age, he was very young at heart and inspired many.

I have got the fortune of interacting with Pujya Swami ji Maharaj and to be a recipient of his love at many occasions. He used to visit ParamDham Ashram whenever invited, and also added value to many of our programs. He also used to lovingly invite me to attend many beautiful programes at Sivananda Ashram and introduced me to many monks of various Mutts in and around Amdavad.

Prayers to the Lord and Param Gurudev Swami Shri Sivananda Maharaj that all devotees and followers get the peace and strength to bear this great loss. The best tribute to Pujya Swami ji Maharaj will be to follow the guidance he has given and continue serving Bharat and Bharateeya culture in the spirit of dedication and devotion.

With Prem and Om,
In the service of the Lord,
