Introduction to Swami Akhandanandji Saraswati - Our Maharajshri!
Anantshri Swami Akahandanandji Saraswati was a great saint of the twentieth century; a well-known exponent of Shrimad Bhagvata and a scholar of Vedanta and Bhakti Shastras. He was known as "Maharajshri" to his followers and friends.
Maharajshri mentored many on the spiritual path, including the past and present generations of Grihasthas, Sanyasi Mahatmas, and Shankaracharyas. Maharajshri's discourses were loved by all - Mahatmas and Scholars from all traditions, as well as people from all walks of life. He authored over 180 books which cover Shrimad Bhagwat, Gita, Ram Charit Manas, and Upnishads of the Vedanta.
Maharajshri established many institutions, including the Anand Vrindavan, which is a well-known Ashram in Vrindavan. Swami Omkaranandji Saraswati "Mahantji" Maharaj guided the Anand Vrindavan Ashram and associated charitable trusts, from 1987 to 2008.
Today, Swami Sachchidanandaji heads the Anand Vrindavan ashram and he has recently anointed Swami Shravananandji as the newest "Mahant" to continue Maharajshri's traditions of service (Karma), devotion (Bhakti), and knowledge (Gyan).
This site provides a brief introduction to Maharajshri, along with some pictures, links, and contact information.
