Swami Sahajananda Giri

Swami Sahajananda was born in a small village in Odisha, India. He was blessed to have darshan of Paramahamsa Hariharanandaji while studying in college. The short meeting left an indelible mark on his mind which prompted him to seek for the master when he moved to USA for work and study. In 2000, he visited the Homestead, FL ashram to meet the great Guru and with his blessings learnt Kriya Yoga meditation. 


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. Sahajananda means one who rejoice in the joy of Self


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