Swami BalenduShree Bindu Sewa Sansthan Ashram
Parikrama Marg, Ram Nagar
Give a brief bio about yourself and/or your studio
Swami Balendu was born on 14th October 1971 in Vrindavan, India. He was very much blessed to grow up in an atmosphere of deep spirituality. His father has devoted all his life to spiritual pursuits, to the raising of moral standards and to spreading the message of universal Truth and spiritual knowledge. His grandfather was a famous speaker, scholar, writer, musician and poet who had been invited several times by Mahatma Gandhi to give lectures.
At the tender age of 9 Swami ji was able to give spiritual lectures and travelled in India with this work. In 1996 Swami ji founded an Ashram at Vrindavan, where poor children are provided with food, drink and education free of charge. They receive lessons in meditation, Sanskrit and Yoga from qualified and experienced teachers.
In 1997 Swami Ji entered the cave in which he spent three years and 108 days isolated from the rest of the world. In this important time of isolation he was doing his Mantra meditation for 17 hours each day in order to increase his healing power. After coming out of the cave he started to travel all over the world to help people everywhere and thousands of people could already experience his wonderful healing energy. He is travelling together with his brother Yashendu Goswami giving healing sessions, yoga workshops, chakra workshops and meditations worldwide.
In India he is supporting 100 children in an elementary school and 60 children in the Swami Balendu e.V. Kindergarten who receive food and education for free as their parents cannot afford it.
Swami Ji does not see himself as a guru or a master: “Our souls and our love is the one thing that universally makes us all the same. I dedicated my whole life and all my activities to children. They are the future of this universe. Helping children is equal to serving God. So I decided to give all my property to Shree Bindu Sewa Sansthan for this wonderful task. Every cent and every penny given to me will be a donation that creates hope for the life and future of a young girl or a young boy. I want to invite you to light a candle of love to enlighten their future and your soul.
We need to break down the barriers and must not be afraid to reach out to each other. Let your love flow freely to each other without conditions and reasons. I am not trying to sell enlightenment. I am also not concerned with increasing numbers of followers. This is not my way. I am just your friend who wants to make a close connection of love and share this wonderful energy with you. I only want to exist in this world to live in love and die in love. I open my arms to embrace those who believe in love.”
