Swami Prabuddhananda Giri
Swami Prabuddhanandaji was born in Indian state of Telengana. A seeker of truth from his young age, Swamiji quietly searched for a teacher who can guide him in the search for reality. He studied engineering and did his post graduate studies in Germany followed by research for his doctorate. Destiny has something else stored for him. His chance meeting with Paramahamsa Prajnananandaji inspired him to lead a life of meditation and service under the tutelage of Paramahamsa ji. He left his doctorate study at advanced stage and joined the monastery. In 2012, Paramahamsa ji, blessed him and ordained him in the Giri order of monk hood with a name best suitable of his attitude of inner query. Prabuddhananda means one who rejoice in realization. Swamiji rejoices in reading, analyzing, and finding the inner essence of life through observation.
