Paramahamsa Vishwananda’s enlightenment and his early years

Paramahamsa Vishwananda, is the founder of the International Spiritual Organisation, Bhakti Marga. He was born on the 13th of June 1978 in Mauritius, an island off the coast of Africa. His parents belonged to the Bharadwaj-gotra, a noteworthy brahmana family lineage that dates back thousands of years. 

It was clear from very early on in Paramahamsa Vishwananda’s life that he is not an ordinary person. His biggest love was always God and his complete dedication and love to serve people caused changes in those around Him. His message of love and devotion has inspired people from all walks of life. His mission continues to grow rapidly and flourish all around the world. 

His guru, Mahavatar Babaji first appeared to him at the hospital when he was recovering from eating poisonous berries. This was when Mahavatar Babaji revealed who he truly was which was a Divine light  brighter than the sun. He went on to witness Mahavatar Babaji several times as time passed. 

He began to embrace his mission as a spiritual teacher after he experienced a state of samadhi at age 14 (complete absorption in the Divine). His vibrant personality and unmistakable realisation of the Divine began to attract more and more people seeking his blessings and advice. Despite his mother’s dismay, visitors lined up at home wanting to meet with ‘The Young Saint.’ He visited Europe for the first time. Very quickly, spiritual seekers started to gather to see him. At this point of time, the Divine Mother appeared to him and asked him to settle in Europe. His first ashram was established in the tiny village of Steffenshof, Germany when a handful of followers decided they all wanted to live together. 

On his 27th birthday, he officially launched his public Bhakti Marga Mission. Bhakti Marga means ‘Path of devotion.’ Through Bhakti Marga, his message and teachings could be spread around the world.

Guruji’s teachings are steeped in the essence of Bhakti, the truth of Bhagavad Gita and the yogic path of Atma Kriya Yoga. He venerates the saints of all traditions, is a respected  Vaishnava Acharya and brings the experience of God to everyone he meets. He shows us a unified message of love and a true path of Sanatana Dharma to the world projecting out the deep, venerable culture outside India’s borders.
