About the Teacher:
SWAMINI RADHIKANANDA (Chinmaya Mission St. Augustine) has been teaching the Bhagavad Gita and other Indian scriptures since 1989. An urgent spiritual search in her early 20’s culminated in meeting her spiritual teacher, H. H. Swami Chinmayananda, in 1978, followed by years of intense study of Vedanta (Non-Dual Teachings of the Hindu scriptures) both in the U.S. and India. Swamini Radhikananda presently lives and teaches at the beautiful 18 acre Chinmaya Mission center just outside of St. Augustine (Elkton). She also enjoys devotional singing and chanting and has recorded several CD’s of spiritual music for children and adults. In February, 2015, she received the blessing of Sannyas initiation (the renounced order) and her new name from H. H. Swami Tejomayananda, Swami Chinmayananda’s successor. She considers it her greatest joy and privilege to share the inspiration and life-transforming teachings of the scriptures to other spiritual seekers and students of Yoga!
