Album Notes
“Swamiji is like a ever-flowing sparkling waterfall of Mother Sruti’s Sacred words” - Akasha Caitanya (yoga teacher and Vedanta student)

Swami Vagishananda is a senior disciple of Parama Pujya Shree Swami Dayananda Saraswati and has been studying and teaching Vedanta and Vedic Chanting for the past 30 years.

When Swamiji was in his teens he became fascinated with mystical poetry and non-dual philosophies. Upon being accepted to a course of study with Swami Dayananda Saraswati in 1975 at the age of 19, he left college and went to India. He graduated from a 3-year residential course in Vedanta Sanskrit and Vedic chanting. During this period he studied and practiced Sri Rudra Prasnam (the most exalted Vedic prayer) and the main Vedic Suktas, Mantras, and Upanishads in the traditional manner under Shree Swami Paramarthananda, a fellow student and master of Vedic Chanting.

He was a staff member in four subsequent 3-year courses taught by Shree Swami Dayananda in the United States and India. During these courses he taught Vedic chanting to the resident students. Serving his teacher in many and varied ways he continued studying and teaching Sanskrit and advanced Vedanta texts. In his 'purvashrama' (student stage) of life, he was known as “Brahmachari Prabhu Chaitanya”. He was initiated into Sannyaasa Renunciation, on the Banks of the Gangaa river in Rishikesh, India, on February 12, 1991.

Among Sri Swamiji’s varied teaching positions are those he has held at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, in Saylorsburg, PA. (where he also taught the Vedic Heritage program for children) and Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, Coimbatore, India. Sri Swamiji taught at the Arsha Vidya Kendra Center for Vedantic study in Bangalore, India, and the Sandeepani West Ashram, Piercy, California.

Today, Swami Vagishananda holds classes and retreats throughout the world, using the traditional methodology called Sampradaya. Swamiji unlocks the teachings of Vedanta, removing the veil of Self ignorance and error which is the fundamental cause of all human suffering.

A gift and a blessing. I feel myself lightening with each syllable. There is a centerdness in each word, in each utterance. It is like hearing clearness.


Energizing and Peaceful
This CD has such an incredible energy. The profound symbolism of Vedanta which is expounded so eloquently is truly uplifting. It touches the soul and instantly calms the mind. And unlike most meditation CDs, this one was vibrant enough to keep me from sleeping, but just as soothing- perfect for meditation! And the quality of the recording was great, too.


swamiji is an excellent teacher and a very kind and warm person. I have been studing with him, and i am missing his classes silvia-argentina


Rare recording gives real meaning and correct sanskrit pronounciation
I love this CD, and it's over an hour long! This learning-oriented recording explains the meaning of Om in a way that helped me to clearly understand its simple and profound meaning. All the chants are priceless, including the well-known Om Namah Shivaya mantra. This CD allows you to hear the meanings, then learn the mantra in call/response format. Once you get it, you can chant with the faster, melodic recording... or just listen. Swamiji's voice is beautiful and warm. All my yoga teachers had different ways of pronouncing sanskrit, but getting the true, authentic, classical pronounciations here gave me confidence in my own chanting.


Great learning cd!
You can feel the power of this Guru's chanting. His explanations are so clear and precise. I love this cd and would love to find more of his work!

The clarity of meaning and the profound depth felt in the ancient sounds comes thru so strongly, so much grace flowing in the chanting. For me this cd is essential listening, as often as possible! The 108 names of Shiva has a very grounding effect on me. Listening to the meanings and chanting along gives me and my sisters a feeling of connectedness to the universal consciousness that is in an thru all.

The devotion, knowledge and conviction with which Swami Vagishananda Saraswati speaks, has helped me in my own practice and loving devotion to the Beloved. The explanations and repetitions bring about such a deep feeling of God I had not known. Thank you for this blessing!


I liked the CD very much; nice and clear, easy to follow the chant if one so desires....service at CD Baby is exellent


A breath of fresh air
This recording is such a breath of fresh air. I love how clearly the material is unfolded. And the recording's production quality does justice to the richness of Swami Vagishananda's voice. I've listened to this scores of times, sometimes repeating a particular track until I'm comfortable chanting along. This stuff brings my focus to what's important.
