Swami Ambikananda


In his life as much as in his teachings, the Mauritian saint and visionary Swami Ambikananda (1934-97) exemplified the spiritual path of love and devotion to God, and showed his devotees how this could be attained.

His practical mysticism bound together the Hindu way of Sri Ramakrishna, the Bengali saint and avatar, with the Western way of Lord Jesus Christ, in a unique synthesis that he called Shiva-Christ Consciousness.
