A Personal Profile of Swami Radhamadhavananda Saraswati,

 Disciple of

HH Sri Swami Chidananda Saraswati Ji Maharaj

President Of

 The Divine Life Society


As a Sannyasin I do not wish to go into my mundane background. Suffice to say that I retired  from a successful engineering business in Canada.

My spiritual interest started with Iskcon in the early eighties when I took out a life membership of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. From thereon my life-style changed. I started spending my vacation periods visiting Iskcon temples around the globe. As a result I visited a number of Iskcon temples in Canada, America, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Hawaii, Ireland and of course India.

I was introduced to Vedanta when I happened to attend a series of four lectures on the "Introduction to Vedanta" at the McMaster University in

Hamilton, Ontario, delivered by HH Shri Swami Dayananda Saraswati of Chinmaya Mission then. Thereafter, I attended a number of spiritual camps and discourses of HH Shri Swami Chinmayananda Saraswati and others organized by Chinmaya Mission. From 1993-96 I stayed at the Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, Bombay and attended a full-time residential course on Vedanta.

 By the Grace of the Lord Almighty, in January 1997, I landed in Rishikesh, where I continued my Vedanta studies under various teachers, ever since.

On  July 20th, 1997, on the Guru-Purnima day

I was initiated into the

Holy Order of Sannyasa by

HH Pujya Shri Swami Chidananda Saraswati ji Maharaj,

President of The Divine Life Society, Rishikesh, Himalayas, India.
