A bhakti yoga practitioner for more than 30 years, Radhanath Swami is a spiritual teacher, community builder, activist, and acclaimed author. He is the founder and director of the Radha Gopinath Ashram in Mumbai, India. Under his inspiration and guidance, the project has grown to include missionary hospitals, orphanages, eco-friendly farms, schools, temples, emergency relief programs, and a food distribution program that feeds more than 300,000 indigent children in downtown Mumbai every day. In spite of his many responsibilities, he also travels widely, teaching Eastern philosophy and spiritually throughout Europe, Asia, and America. He has been featured as a guest speaker in universities such as Harvard, MIT, Columbia and Stanford, and in corporations such as Microsoft, Intel and Oracle.
His memoir, The Journey Home (Mandala Publishing, 2008), chronicles a young man’s emergence into a deep state of personal and spiritual awareness, providing a penetrating glimpse into the heart of India’s rich mystic devotional tradition. Rooted in this tradition, Radhanath Swami’s message is as profound as it is simple: by cultivating a rich inner life of self-awareness and a genuine practice of service, we can become instruments of compassion and agents of sustainable change in the world.
