Share Article

Teacher of India’s bhakti yoga tradition, Radhanath Swami, to tour the U.S.

The Hare Krishna movement, which began in the United States as a fringe culture in the tumultuous ’60s, turns fifty this year. Acclaimed spiritual leader and teacher Radhanath Swami has been one of the leaders at the helm of the movement for the past twenty years and has been lauded by institutions around the world, including Harvard, MIT, the London School of Economics, Apple, IBM, and Starbucks, to name a few. The Swami, who spends half the year traveling and speaking, is in the U.S. from May to August to release his new book, The Journey Within: Exploring the Path of Bhakti, the highly anticipated follow-up to his best-selling memoir, The Journey Home.

In The Journey Within, Radhanath Swami once again inspires readers with intimate personal stories from his decades of experience and illustrates the basic tenets of bhakti yoga (the yoga of devotion). Illuminating references to Western religions and ideologies make this ancient philosophy more accessible than ever.

A Publishers Weekly review acclaims, “Radhanath’s teaching here is highly accessible and a delight to read; newcomers will feel welcome to bhakti and intrigued by his conviction and compassion.”

The Journey Within invites readers from all backgrounds to delve into their hearts and discover the simple truths that unite us all.

Radhanath Swami spends much of the year in Mumbai leading humanitarian services projects, such as eye clinics, free-care hospitals, eco-villages, and food programs that feed 1.2 million school children in India each day. The rest of the year, he speaks around the world with global leaders who call upon him to provide fresh insights on shifting our consciousness to solve world problems. Academic and activist Dr. Cornel West, comedian and activist Russell Brand, and scholars around the globe support and share the universal message of his teachings.

Radhanath Swami is known worldwide as a compassionate and authentic teacher who walks his talk and teaches “happiness and fulfillment are not found in wealth, but rather in service and compassion.” His U.S. tour includes events with spiritual, corporate, and private groups, with media coverage in each city in addition to radio and podcast interviews and national print and online media coverage.
