Swami Sahajananda Giri

Swami Sahajananda was born in a quaint village in Odisha, India. Swamiji was blessed to have darshan of Paramahamsa Hariharanandaji while studying in college.

In 2010, with the blessings of Paramahamsa Prajnanananda ji swamiji left is worklife and joined the monastery. In 2016, Paramahamsa ji, blessed him and ordained him in the Giri order of monk hood with a name best suitable of his attitude spontaneous joy. Sahajananda means one who rejoice in the joy of Self. 


Swamiji is based in Kriya Vedanta Gurukulam, the monastery in Joliet, IL
