Swami Sarvadevananda talks with us about “The Purpose and Practice of Meditation.”
Swami Sarvadevananda is a senior monk of the Ramakrishna Order of India. Swami was initiated by Swami Shankarananda, the 7th President of the Order, in 1961. He joined the monastery at Belur Math and had the opportunity to come in contact with many monks who were initiated by Holy Mother (Sri Sarada Devi), Swami Brahmananda, Swami Shivananda, and other direct disciples of Ramakrishna. Swami became the head of the Ramakrishna Mission of Sikra in 1988, and in 1993, Swami Sarvadevananda was posted to the Vedanta Society of Southern California in Hollywood where he served as assistant minister until 2012. When his predecessor, Swami Swahananda, passed away in October, 2012, he became the minister and spiritual leader of the Vedanta Society of Southern California.
