(Appointed Swami for South Africa, Mauritius, Kenya, Angola, Uganda, Tanzania, Ghana & Indian Ocean Islands)
Swami Vishwaparanthapananda was initiated by his Satguru, Premavatar Sri Swami Vishwananda in 2008 into the Bhakti Marga Order. Throughout his travels around the world, he is constantly sharing love, support and understanding to all he meets, about the nature of the mind, emotions and unconditional love.
He has experienced and understood the power and importance of unconditional love through the example and Grace of His Satguru, Premavatar Sri Swami Vishwananda. Through his unique, jovial yet profound manner, Swami Vishwaparanthapananda shares this deep wisdom with all who wish to grow the awareness of joy, love and peace within themselves. Swami is based in South Africa and spends most of his time at the Shri Maha Jwala Narasimha Centre in Johannesburg.
“When I first met him, he did not acknowledge me in any way that I thought he should acknowledge me. But I felt him and I knew I wanted to be close to him. I watched him and thought, “What is this human being, Is this even a human being?” And since that day my whole life hasn’t been the same. With each day he gives the Grace for me to see more and more that only LOVE is REAL. He has shown me through his infinite patience that the heart of the master beats in the chest of each one who is drawn to the same. I have seen in his eyes that Love is fearless, that Love is unbounded, and I have seen in his actions that perfection and imperfection both have Love as their mother and as their end.“- Swami Vishwaparanthapananda
