"Swamiji's Peace and Paradise workshops...show you the way to your own sense of peace. Simple, beautiful and life-changing. His innate sense of peace and goodness will not fail to touch you. His simple, grounded wisdom will not fail to lift you. Truly a simple man of God who "walks the talk" - there are few spiritual leaders like him left in this world - who do not take refuge in arcane texts and rituals but who can connect deeply with the modern day human being in an idiom he understands and can empathize with. Truly, he is a guru for modern times..." — Sanjay Ray Chaudhuri: Filmmaker. Guargon, India
"Swamiji gave me a reading to reduce my stress from test anxiety. It cleared up...in 1 minute! He continued the session and helped me resolve my re-test anxiety in the next minute (literally). Then he asked me if my heart felt closed and I told him it was a big issue. He did a 'heart healing' and in another minute my heart was full and strong and I was glowing.
He said he saw some people over my right shoulder and I told him they were my departed family. Without telling Swamiji, I had come to the fair to learn about my departed family and Swamiji picked up on it. I got such confirmation from this session — a total relief and this became the best day of my life because I now have my family with me again." Mary S, Hartford, CT USA

"Changes since our last session: I have 4 new clients and have provided 14 sessions and sold multiple products...this is beyond what I had anticipated. While I have not met my financial goals over the past 1.5 years, this month to date I met half my goal. I am still receiving calls for clients for the month of March. I very much look forward to (our next meeting)" — GT, Colt's Neck, New Jersey, USA
"Update before our next session. There have been major changes - I now enjoy my work and for me it does not seem like work...the anger issue is about gone." — RN Australia
"I called Swamiji to help me find my lost keys. In his mind, Swamiji saw a chair in my living room and described the straw seat with papers on it even though he has never seen my home and never knew about the chair. He said the keys were either on the chair or next to it. I found the keys on the table next to the chair...in a bag of potato chips! Thanks Swamiji" — Bruce W CT, USA
