His Divinity Swami Prakashanand Saraswati (Shree Swamiji) was born in a
respectable brahman family in 1929 in Ayodhya. He took the order of
sanyas in 1950. Seeing his renunciation, determination and deep
devotional feelings for God, in 1952, he was offered to become the
Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Jyotirmath but his heart was drawn towards the
love of Radha Krishn so he did not accept the proposal.
Later on he came to Braj and spent almost 20 years in isolated and
secluded (leela) places of Braj, mostly in Barsana, in loving
remembrance of Shree Raseshwari Radha Rani and Krishn. With the will of
Shree Radha, he started teaching the path of
raganuga bhakti (divine-love-consciousness) since 1972.
He is the founder of the “International Society of
Divine Love” and “Barsana Dham” in the USA, and the “International Society
of Divine Love” and “Rangeeli Mahal Pratishthan” in India. He has written
eleven books on the practical (devotional) aspects of God realization.
It was the descension of Shree Radha's Grace that
only in a year’s time such an extensive Divine work, “The True
History and the Religion of India,” was produced by Shree Swamiji which
contacts all the important aspects of Sanatan Dharm (Hinduism) with
logical, scriptural, scientific, philosophical and historical evidences.
In fact, it was an imperative need of the present age to have such a
concise encyclopedia of authentic Hinduism in order to protect and to
present the original truth of our Divine scriptures (the Vedas, Upnishads,
Gita and the Bhagwatam etc.) in the world.
