A devotee asked Swamiji, “What is the essence of your spiritual teaching?” He smiled and replied, "Stilling the mind, liberating it from unnecessary thoughts and depression and being permanently happy.”

Swami Premananda was a spiritual master who dedicated his life to serving others. He was a living example of how to overcome obstacles with a positive mind and his primary concern was always for others. Swamiji’s patience and pure love were infinite. He spent many hours listening to devotees’ problems, helping them to solve them and guiding them towards a life of inner peace and happiness. His life was an inspiration to all who met him.

This satsang was recorded at Edamalaipatti Pudur in Trichy in 1988. It is a previously unpublished satsang, which was recorded as a video.

“During his or her life, a human being should always try to follow a good path. However, the people in this world don’t think about it even for a moment. Human beings forget to try and attain a higher path in this life. If people thought about this for just a moment, they could surrender themselves at the feet of the Lord and make use of this opportunity. However, when they only think about themselves then everything they do will be done for fame, name, position, status and for selfish reasons. If a person wants to get closer to the temple of God, then God’s grace will always shower on them.”



This satsang was recorded at Thiruvanaikaval Temple Hall, Edamalaipatti Pudur in Trichy in 1985. It is a previously unpublished satsang, which was recorded as a video.

“Life is impermanent. In this impermanent life we are born to find the truth. If we don’t find out the truth now then when in our lifetime are we going to find it? What else is there to come close to other than the Lord’s divine lotus feet? We should think the purpose of our life is only to come close to his divine lotus feet. In order to realize the true ideas of our religion, the divine will send us on the correct path and make us carry out correct deeds. Patience is always very necessary for us to achieve anything. When we practise patience then we can be victorious. We have very little patience. We are confused because of tension, haste and hasty ideas. Be patient.”



Our Sri Premananda Centre of Koszalin (Poland) By Dharini (Centre Coordinator) and Bhavadharini

“The Sri Premananda Centre of Koszalin is located in a yoga school run by Dharini, the Centre Coordinator. The school is situated near the city centre in the highest building in town. It is very fortunate that our Centre is in a yoga school, because many different people appear here every day – most of them are interested only in the physical aspects of yoga, but some of them seek something more, a spiritual path, and we can introduce them to Swamiji and his teachings.”

Krishna Jayanthi celebrations in the Sri Premananda Centre of Basel, Switzerland

“On 5th September devotees gathered in the Centre of Basel to attend the programmeme for Krishna’s birthday.
