Intro


The Technicolor-bright temple was remarkable – a complex geometric maze of interlocked circles and triangles, towering high amid the deep green hills of rural eastern India.

But possibly even more remarkable than the temple itself was the man who had coaxed it into existence.

Four decades ago, a powerful vision of the Goddess led Dr. N. Prahlada Sastry – until then a man of science and a religious skeptic – to walk away from his prestigious position as a nuclear physicist at the heart of India's military defense complex.

Intro


The Technicolor-bright temple was remarkable – a complex geometric maze of interlocked circles and triangles, towering high amid the deep green hills of rural eastern India.

But possibly even more remarkable than the temple itself was the man who had coaxed it into existence.

Four decades ago, a powerful vision of the Goddess led Dr. N. Prahlada Sastry – until then a man of science and a religious skeptic – to walk away from his prestigious position as a nuclear physicist at the heart of India's military defense complex. 

 

Retreating into the remote eastern jungle, he discovered the remains of a long-forgotten Mother Goddess shrine – and embarked on a lifelong journey to revive and expand it.

Taking the initiatory name Sri Amritananda Natha Saraswati, he eventually attracted tens of thousands of followers from across India and around the world. His message:

Don't put me on a pedestal. I am not extraordinary.
What I am, so are you – you only have to realize it.
What I saw, so can you – you can meet and interact with the divine yourself.
I will show you how, if you want to learn...

They called him "Guruji" – Respected Teacher.

And they called his temple complex "Devipuram" – Abode of the Goddess.


Amritananda's journey took him from the sprawling metropolises of South Asia to the developing world of south-central Africa; from an unlikely Hindu Goddess temple thriving in rural upstate New York to a mass Tantric prayer chant at the summit of New Hampshire’s Mount Washington.

Along the way, he encountered a mind-blowing array of saints and gurus, including an ancient yogi believed by many (among them late Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi) to be more than 400 years old; and a renowned Himalayan master who had once conducted atomic research at Michigan State following an incredible wartime escape from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia.

Amritananda's teachings reveal and illuminate the deepest secrets of Sri Vidya upasana – literally, "The Path of Auspicious Wisdom."

The oldest surviving school of authentic Hindu Tantra, Sri Vidya was inaccessible for centuries to all but the most privileged few.

Thanks to the work of Sri Amritananda Natha Saraswati, it is now available to all who wish to learn.

About Guruji


I don’t accept any claims of me being a realized soul.

To me, material and spiritual are all the same.

There is only one realized soul.

That is God.

And you are it.
