MEET PARAMAHAMSA VISHWANANDA
RECEIVE A PERSONAL BLESSING FROM A LIVING SAINT
Both days include the life-changing experience to be in the presence of a Satguru, Premavatar (incarnation of Divine Love) and fully-realized Kriya Yoga Master: Paramahamsa Vishwananda. On Day 2, you will have the rare, not to be missed, opportunity to receive a personal blessing called Darshan.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE BLESSING?
During the moment of Darshan, Paramahamsa Vishwananda will look into your eyes, removing obstacles that keep your soul from realizing its true purpose, and lifting the veil between us and the Divine.
WHAT DO PEOPLE EXPERIENCE?
People come away from Darshan with Paramahamsa Vishwananda feeling a profound, heart-opening awakening of unconditional love and acceptance such as they have never felt before. Many receive healing from specific ailments, peace and calm of mind, and a feeling of being connected to the core essence of oneself — the soul.
Meeting a God-Realized Master has the potential to be the most unique, impactful experience you have ever had in your life.

“For my first blessing, I had to travel 4,000 miles to meet Paramahamsa Vishwananda. But in that moment when He looked into my eyes, it felt like time stopped. I entered into this space that was not possible to achieve on my own. You can do whatever practice or meditation…but it doesn’t take you there. In that moment, my heart was beating, but it felt so peaceful. It felt like home.
