• The Pure Sounds of a Pure Heart

    Born in Italy, Swami Nirvanananda Saraswati travels the globe carrying only his guitar, harmonium and a daypack.  Swamiji’s sweet songs of devotion open the heart and rouse the soul.  Recorded live at Kali Mandir, this CD captures the energy and spontaneity of traditional call/response kirtan—a beautiful and passionate offering to the Divine.

  • Sri Sarada Devi and Her Divine Play is a massive undertaking by Swami Chetanananda, who spent seven years bringing together careful research based on many biographies in English and Bengali, eye-witness accounts and reminiscences. Lovingly refered to as the "Holy Mother", Sri Sarada Devi took up Sri Ramakrishna's mission after he left his body, initiating thousands of disciples. Until a ripe old age, the Holy Mother navigated a sea of difficult situations without ever forgetting her divine nature. We look to her for wisdom, compassion and affection.
