“When you come for darshan and when I look at your soul at that moment, what I see is your Self, your True Self. And what I see is the beauty of what you hold inside of you. That’s what I want you to see and that’s what I want you to realize for yourself.”

Paramahamsa Vishwananda


Darshan means ‘divine sight’: the experience of seeing, and being seen by, the Divine. Receiving darshan in-person from a fully-Realised Master who lives in constant union with the Divine is a rare and very special treasure not to be missed.

Paramahamsa Vishwananda’s Darshan blessing is a showering of Divine Love, opening the heart to receive, awaken, and realize this Love within.
