Bhakti Yoga is the Path of the Cultivation of the Divine Love;
Rather than a religion it is the most ancient philosophy from India,
Open to anyone wanting to reach happiness and health,
in a simple way, through elevated thinking.
To Promote, Teach and Practice
Health & Happiness through Spirituality.
Srila Bhaktikavi Atulananda Acharya Swami, Our Guru’s mission:
To Preach the Glories of Love for God and for All Living Entities,
the True care of the World and of the Spirit.
Srila A. C. Bhaktivedenta Swami Prabhupada (1896-1977), our Parampara and our Guru’s Guru mission:
Srila Bhaktikavi Atulananda Acharya Swami’s knowledge comes from a lineage of gurus succession of disciples or “Parampara,” where the disciples also revere the guru’s guru or Parama guru, the guru of the guru of the Parama guru or Parapara guru, the guru of the Parapara guru or Parmeshti guru, and so on, reaching the roots of Hindu Vaisnavism.
Our Parapara Guru, Srila Bhaktisidhanta Saraswati Thakura Prabhupada (1874-1937) gave his disciple the order to learn English to travel to the Western world to present and teach the Vedas to the westerners, we are eternally indebted to both guru and disciple for this gift of knowledge they shared with us since 1967 when Srila Prabhupada first came to America.
Srila B.k. Atulananda Acharya Swami gave me initiation in the Holy Names in 1995, then second initiation in 2002, and renunciant Maharani or sanjas initiation in 2018. “Jay Bhakti” means “All Glories to the Devotional Love for God,” and “Devi Dasi” is female for “servant of the servant”, while Maharani is a female monk.
Bhakti Yoga as presented by Gurudeva appeared as the happy topmost encounter after a life of spiritual searching, since 8 y.o., and gave new light and depth to various practices including Meditation, Ahimsa (non-violent) food, Reiki, Bhakti Yoga, Yoga Inbound, Tarot and Natural Medicine. My College education in Art History at the University of Chile and at the University of Oregon (M.A.) lead me to a successful professional practice for twenty years, as lecturer, professor, Vatican Museums guide, Art TV researcher and TV conductor for art programs, before fully committing to my spiritual practice as healer and spiritual guide. Today I live in Ocean Beach, San Diego, where I have helped many people to heal and grow.
Currently I have a weekly satsanga program and I am fundraising to move into a bigger facility as the number of participants and their enthusiasm continues growing, calling for a full-size Bhakti Temple of Healing Arts.
