H.T. Question 2:

a) What are their Teachings?




Everything that is in the Heart of Hindu Sanatana Dharma, Yogas, Vedanta, Writings of Sivananda, and the Outpourings of a Genius and a Man of Ultimate Truth-experience.

The teachings of the descending line of Gurus, in the lineage of Swami Omkarananda, from Lord Narayana, Dakshinamurti, Dattatreya, Vyasa, Vasishta, Gaudapada, Shankaracharya down to Sivananda and Omkarananda are already known to the world. Our Adi Guru Shankaracharya's central teachings are available to the seekers of the Truth and the public around the globe. The inspiring Teachings of our Paramaguru Sivananda are easily accessible to the people in all continents of our planet. They are also on the Internet. The entire universe of Sanatana Dharma is our field. We represent the Heart of the Vedas, Upanishads, Brahmasutras, Bhagavad Gita, Puranas, Dharma Shastras. We are Saiwaites, Vaishnawaites, Bhaktas, Yogis and, what is more, you can find the essence of the essentials of all world religions in our fundamental teachings. The Values we live by, and present to mankind, are timeless and therefore have a valuable message to people of all religions and races of all epochs. The whole mankind is our family, Sivakutumbam, and is to be served in all manner of ways. Embodying in himself the Mother of the Vedas, Aditi, Gayatri, Mahatripurasundari, Swami Omkarananda Saraswati is unique, and his teachings breathe the breath of the Truth-realisation. When he speaks, he does not think, as his words laden with light, power, wisdom flow from a Source of all-including divine Intelligence, behind and beyond the mind.

Swami Omkarananda's teachings are pregnant with hundreds of wonderful, dynamic and most practical methods for God-experience in all conditions and circumstances of daily life. They are self-formulations of the realisation of the Infinite, offered to the individuals seeking a union with the ultimate Reality, Parabrahman. There are thousands of files full of writings of Swami Omkarananda waiting to be edited and printed and published. His speeches and talks are recorded on the magnetic tape, and the tape runs into thousands of kilometres. Since three decades his two hundred publications have touched and transformed the lives of numerous seekers and aspirants. Since 1965 the Publication Department of Omkarananda Ashram Switzerland has been issuing two Magazines in the German language. Some of his works have been published in 54 languages of the world.


b) He is very active in Europe and has major Ashrams at least in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, England. We visited a small place associated with him in Bombay, run by Madhu Shastri, who has visited Hawaii and is a fan of HINDUISM TODAY.


Every Hindu around the world should feel it his prerogative to be a fan of the HINDUISM TODAY.
