  • I’m so incredibly grateful for Swamiji’s words of encouragement. When I first started listening to the talks I was going through an anxious period of my life but the talks really got me through. From the very first talk I was totally hooked. I will definitely keep listening as there is always a new treasure of wisdom to discover. I would love to start the private lessons within the next two months. In the meantime I’ve just purchased the online meditation course which I’m very excited to start. I’ve have a 3 year old boy and a 17th old girl so life atm is slightly chaotic (in the best way). I’m hoping the course will help me to stay on track with my meditation.

  • I am finding the website very easy to use and I feel the steps to self understanding are very important. You will find this knowledge nowhere else being so accessible. The options from video and audio are great.
    I enjoy sitting at a peaceful place listening to Swamiji talk of the important topics taught from his master Shri Maharaj Ji . These talks have been very helpful for my day to day living. Swamiji has an amazing personality and sense of humor. I look forward to building my knowledge on this great wisdom and philosophy. These talks are so important for all of us on this earth. My lifestyle has had a great amount of stress in it. But with this wisdom and knowledge helps see things more clearly and life is becomming less stressful and more enjoyable.

  • It was a genuine privilege to host Swamiji at Yoga Synergy. For 90 minutes he spellbound more than 80 people with his depth of knowledge, sense of humour and beautiful presentation. One thing really stood out and that was his ability to speak on profound philosophical subjects in a most easy to understand manner. A wonderful evening. Thank you Swamiji.

  • In the presence of Swamiji and Carmen with their wisdom, teachings and beautiful music, have over the five day meditation series, been profound. I am much more present, the mind has been quieter-easier to be with, I feel lighter, softer, joyful and abundant.Trust God’s got it!
    Looking forward to learning with Swamiji again.

  • Dear Swamiji, I was blessed to have been present at your beautiful morning meditation at Wanderlust Festival. In that one hour, you took me on a journey of self discovery, as I started finding my true heart, my authentic soul being, and at the same time, I was gifted from you the recognition of how I want to live each and every day.. Thank you.. I honor the path that you have walked and the knowledge that you are now able to share with us all from your own life learnings. With love and deep gratitude.

  • I met Swamiji in 2000 at an evening held at the Grand Hotel in Glenelg SA. I had never heard of a Swami or Bhakti Yoga before that time.

    I was taken in by Swamiji’s humor and ability to explain the deeper lessons of life through his stories.

  • When I first met Swami Ji it was very evident that he was a man of considerable knowledge and ability. After hearing him speak, I was quickly moved to invite him to be part of Inspya yoga’s Teacher Training Course. Swami Ji has the ‘X’ factor and brings light and warmth wherever he goes.

    Lance Schuler Director, Inspya Yoga, Australia

  • Swami Govindananda is a gifted and inspiring speaker. He is a true spiritual teacher who eloquently and simply communicates great spiritual truths in a way that is accessible and enlightening to the novice and experienced student alike. He shares his words of wisdom and love with a beautiful blend of entertaining stories and profound insight.

    We feel extremely blessed to have met Swami Ji and to have hosted him at our yoga school. I look forward to his return to teach a weekend yoga philosophy course in June 2018 at our studio.

  • We had the honour and pleasure of having Swamiji Govindananda speak at our Inaugural International Ayurveda and Yoga Conference in April 2006 in Sydney, which was a landmark event and the first of its kind in Australia! He once again did us the honours by presenting at our 2nd International Conference in April 2009 at the City Recital Hall in Sydney CBD together with 11 International speakers.

    In 2006 Swamiji was a keynote speaker at our Conference and he had the whole crowd of nearly 400 participants all spell bound for 50 minutes! He also conducted a post conference workshop for which we received very positive feedbacks. He once again enthralled the audience this time in April 2009 with his dynamic presence and his knowledge. He also came to our rescue on one of the three days when one of the speakers was running late by having a chanting session with his group in the morning. He is a great singer and plays the harmonium beautifully. People were amazed hearing him sing sanksrit and hindi bhajans with excellent pronunciation as a westerner.

    His diction, his wisdom, his classic style makes him a great Orator and we were so happy that we got this opportunity to have Swamiji once again capture the audience with his pearls of wisdom on the Bhagvad Gita and the Indian philosophy of Bhakti Yoga! He is a dynamic speaker and wherever he speaks people get so entranced with what he has to deliver! It comes from his heart and soul!

    Swamiji takes you on a journey of the soul to find and experience your true reality, inner peace and happiness and ultimately, the love divine.

    We would not hesitate to recommend Swamiji for any conference, as people will benefit greatly with his wealth of spiritual knowledge and experience in connecting with their Higher selves and achieving that mental equilibrium to sooth the senses and calm the mind, which is so much needed these days, with our busy lifestyles!

    Farida Irani Director, Ayurveda Yoga Australia

  • He is a wonderful teacher and communicator – wise, humorous, accessible, clear, generous, authentic and humble. And he delivers his teachings with a knowledge and wisdom that are profound, deep and inspiring.

    He takes what some of us have been blessed to experience on the mat or in life – those peek moments where the sense of wholeness, love, quietude and peace we feel are an expression of our mind, hearts and bodies beating as one and we reside in a Space that is vast and undisturbed by time or thought – and gives us an understanding of this, our essence, our higher Self and the bigger picture of life and death.

    And he illuminates the wisdom that lies at the heart of Yoga, which is both its beginning and end, with clarity and anecdotes that are both easy to digest and inspiring, reminding us once more of what is important and true.
