yogi, spiritual and yoga master who has devoted his life to
the path and tradition of yoga.
enlightened soul has lived his life in Gangotri, at the
source of the sacred Ganges River in the Indian Himalayas.
The inaccessible nature of this location until recently has
meant that very few yoga practitioners or people have ever
had the privilege of actually sitting with Swami-ji. (Until
the 1970s when the first dirt road appeared, Gangotri was
only accessible via a very dangerous 3-week foot path.)
Swami-ji has lived in this remote area since
1948. He spent 25 years living in a cave
beside his teacher’s very modest wood hut – with only
enough room to lie down.

Swami Sundaranand took the
brahmacharia sadu vow over 57 years ago and since then
has lived in Gangotri near the source of the sacred
Ganges River in the Himalayas.
He has spent a major part of his life engaged
in meditation. He is one of the primary students of
Swami Tapovanam Maharaj, (1889-1957) one of the great
Yogis of the early 20th century and received a special
transmission from Swami Tapovanam in January, 1957 upon
Swami Tapovanam’s passing.
Swami Sundaranand is truly an enlightened soul full of
love and light. Those who have the privilege and
blessing of sitting in his atmosphere during meditation
experience an elevation in consciousness that can only
be described as divine.

Personal Time with Swami-ji has changed many
was so pleased with the first DVD I received
through the Center for Healing Arts. I could
almost feel the light coming off of Swami-ji and
filling my room as I watched the DVD. I could
feel the serenity of the teacher and the
surroundings. This great teacher is offering
many gems from how to use the breath,
discipline, chakras, and the spiritual path in
general. I have watched the DVD many times to
let Swami-ji’s presence and wisdom really sink
in. I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn
from him without taking an expensive pilgrimage
to India. The Center is offering a wonderful
chance to experience living masters and gifted
spiritual healers without leaving your own home.
Because the teachings are on DVD, they can be
explored over time so I can learn in my own

Dear Victor, I am Swami Paramananda. I did my
mechanical engineering and my PhD at IIT Delhi.
I took to the path of Yoga in 1983 and am now
teaching Patanjali Yoga. I saw Your DVD on
Swami Sundarananda of Gangotri, Himalayas. I met
Him Last August, 2008, by divine grace. I
have seen many Yogis in my life and have enough
experiences to say something about your work.
My details are available on
www.satdharmashram.org. Your work is a
marvel and of the rarest of treasures.
Why, because, Swami ji is a truth incarnation.
He lived with the greatest master of Yoga and
Vedanda (science of self realization) Swami
Tapovan Maharaj. He is the only Swami that Lived
with Tapovan Maharaj. Hence Swami Sundaranand is
the most fortunate and a rare star of India.
Others like Swami Chinmayananda (Chinmaya
Mission) studied under Swami Tapovan but were
not staying with Him. Swami Sundarananda lived
in the Himalayas for more than 60 years.
He is the last Yogi of His caliber with so much
experience. He is dedicated to the core
to both His master and to the path of Yoga.
His authenticity is exploding in each and every
word. His enlightened being is exposed in
every action. His exemplary life is mind
boggling and a treasure to know about for any
human being who is on the path for higher
realization. He is a Yogi to the
core and ripe at the age of 82. He lives
so deep and silently in the Himalayas with so
much inner attainment. He is ever blissful and
with 100% clarity. Hence, in
bringing such a great soul to the world, your
DVD, is the rarest of the Rarest.
It is going to be a nourishing tonic to whoever
sees this. Your film expresses what his
state of being is. I really adore your
effort and you are truly blessed by the divine
to able to locate this Swami.
Scientific discoveries never serve the soul
howsoever great they are, but your discovery is
better than any scientific discovery because it
is a noble cause and serves souls directly.
My blessings to you and prayers to everyone for
their spiritual journey.”
-Swami Paramananda, Kolli
Hills, Tamil Nadu,
“Gives an excellent overview of yoga as a
spiritual practice. It’s thorough, but also a
joy to watch. This is a serious treatment of
the subject, and it’s direct from one of the
true masters of the subject. I look forward to
the other films in the series.”
- Elise Aymer, East York
love the pacing of the Swamiji DVD. It wasn’t
rushed and you could get into the feel of what
it would be like to be there. Swami-ji made
everything simple and easy to understand. He
clearly summarized the important parts of yoga
and in a way that relates to our lives. This
teaching style isn’t available in yoga classes –
he consolidated the philosophical aspect helping
me to gain a broader understanding beyond the
mere physical aspects. His happiness, essence
and peace shine through. It’s nice to realize
how simple and accessible happiness can be.
Most people think that happiness is beyond our
reach. He teaches us the things we already have
but don’t know we already possess. I feel
blessed I discovered the DVD. The teachings
have enriched my life.”
- Susan Wells, Certified Yoga
a geographer-ecologist and ardent traveler, I
find it a unique opportunity to see and hear
Swami Sundaranand in his own setting and this
sacred site near the source of the
Gangas in India. His teachings
seem intimately linked to his surroundings. I
look forward to future nature-healer connections
from the Center for Healing Arts.
- Judith Stamp, PhD
really like that the Center is giving me access
to practitioners I would not normally have the
chance to meet. Although Swami Sundaranand
lives in the Himalayas, I can learn from him
anytime by playing the DVD.”
- James Poirier – Graphic Artist –
watched this with a student of Swami-ji and our
local meditation group and loved it. What a
good-hearted and generous teacher, very
inspiring. Your filming and editing was great.
Loved the scenes by the river.”

“Dear Mr. Demko: I have received “Personal Time
with Swami-ji” and I am very satisfied and
happy. There is strength in his praying and his
words. Thank you indeed for making this
