Swami Aseshananda lived and taught in America for some forty years; he was Sri Sarada Devi’s last living monastic disciple up until his passing in 1996. He imbibed both the transcendent viewpoint of Advaita Vedanta and the practical teachings of Christianity in his life, combining them into a transformative message for the Western culture and the world at large — which he gave out untiringly and unstintingly for the many years of his blessed lifetime. His presence conferred galvanizing inspiration; his words from the podium conveyed powerful vibrations; his daily puja up through his ninetieth year transmitted countless blessings. His divine utterances and selfless actions during a life of complete commitment are still vibrating in the hearts and minds of the devotees. We offer here a selection of lectures the Swami delivered during his time at the Vedanta Society of Portland.
