Join us for the spiritual commemoration of the full moon birth anniversary of HH Swami Hariharananda Paramahansa, the monastic master of HH Swami Vidyadhishananda. Listen to words of wisdom and sublime chanting by HH Swami Vidyadhishananda and receive blessings on this auspicious occasion.
Listen to a special presentation to learn about the mysterious descension of Swami Hariharananda – how he was the avatāra of Twastā – one of the twelve forms of Sun God. Be transported to Swami Hariharananda Baba’s years in Puri’s Karar ashram where he would become a spiritual giant. Learn how Tryambaknath (Mahavatar Babaji) conferred blessings to him and how this was largely responsible for his realization. See rare video footage from his teaching years and learn about his wisdom teachings.
Paramahansa Hariharananda was born on an auspicious combination of a full moon on a Monday, during the early morning. His birth date of 27th May 1907 is on Vaiśākha purnimā also popularly known as Buddha purnimā, as the great Gautama Buddha was born on this same Vedic soli-lunar calendar day. Swami Hariharananda’s birthstar of Anuradha naxatra (a lunar asterism) accorded him a sweet endearing voice with a feminine quality, typical of males born under this star. Incidentally, he closed his life also during Anuradha naxatra but this time on a new moon evening.
