Description for Om Swami: As We Know Him

About the Author

Ismita Tandon is an award-winning poet and author. She graduated from Sophia College, Ajmer and went on to pursue an MBA degree. Ismita has published three novels, one with Penguin and two with HarperCollins. She shares her poems regularly on her Facebook page, A Lesser Known Poet. She’d thought she was done writing books as her love for poetry far exceeded her desire to write. Her stint at the Om Swami ashram led her to lead a more spiritual life, compelling her to pen down this book. When not scribbling poems, she spends time with her black lab, Benoo, who much like Ismita, loves vegetarian food and a siesta.

Swami Vidyananda Om grew up in Bangalore. After spending time at an ashram in Bangalore and in Rishikesh, he found his guru in Om Swami. Swami Vidyananda is Om Swami’s foremost disciple and was initiated in the tradition of Sri Vidya. An unusually talented singer, Swami Vidyananda is devoted to Swamiji. He lives in Sri Badrika ashram in Himachal in the service of Sri Hari. Swami Vidyananda enjoys singing for Bhagwan and loves eggless cakes.

There is absolutely no doubt that this book is a boon for the people. For the ones who are already associated with Swamiji, it helps to strengthen their faith further.
For the ones who would read about Swamiji for the first time would get to know that the stuff they were brought up with - thinking whether what is explained in the scriptures does really happen or not, whether such sages really existed or not, I guess this book has opened a wonderful door for them. Just Enter and get absorbed !!

The only flip side ? In the beginning, as Swami Vidyananda also mentions, Swamiji could devote considerable time to devotees, after "If Truth be told" was released, the devotees got 5 min each, and with subsequent book releases (Wellness Sense, Kundalani, When All is not Well) the time as of now is 2 min.
With this book, it would be a miracle if Swamiji at least finds a MINUTE for each person visiting HIM at the Ashram.
That is because HE does not turn anyone away - even of somebody is associated with HIM for 4 -5 years, Swamiji still continues to give him/her HIS time.
Gratitude to Saadhvi ji & Swami Vidyananda ji.

I would like to thank the authors and everyone involved in bringing out this book. It was an excellent read, couldn't stop reading and when I finished reading the last page, I was sad that it was over. It changed my perspective about Swamiji completely.
I read his blogs regularly, read his books, knew very well that he had darshan of Mother Divine but never knew or thought that he might be as divine as the Mother Divine herself!
This book portrays the incidents very well, it was as if things come alive as you read! I laughed at the humorous incidents, cried during emotional ones!
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more Om Swami!

A beautiful journey of two pure souls who got to Swamiji due to some good karma in their lifetime. Splendid work full of love, devotion and reverence! The honest narration of Ismita Tandon's (now Sadhvi Vrinda OM) and Swami Vidyananda OM's real life experiences with OM Swamiji leaves the reader spell bound.
A must read for everyone!!

My Sincere and heartfelt thanks to Sadhvi JI and Swami Vidyananda om for giving us this gem of book, singing the glories of our lord.

Both the parts by Sadhviji (Ishmita Tondon) and Swami Vidyananda Om Just Enchant you, you can actually see it happening in front of you.

I will cherish it, Totally Love it. It makes you laugh and well up at times. It's a roller coaster ride.

Maybe it will help you understand him a little better.

It can be clearly seen the immense compassion Swamiji has for everyone and the love he bestows on everyone.

Despite him being capable of infinite possibilities he is like a little child, child of mother divine.

You can see all his colours in here.

Go get it.

A million thanks to the authors for coming up with the book!

As Swami Vidyananda Om mentioned in the book - "I have not shared my experiences for the sceptics or those who have no affinity towards my Gurudev.......I have written this work primarily for the devotees who worship the very ground Swamiji walks on"

The book provides a fascinating insight about a great Spiritual Master. It reveals that facet of Om Swamiji which would otherwise be available as experiences in small sparks to different people at different times.
Ismita Tandon weaves a web around her experiences at the ashram and also while travelling with Om Swamiji as the editor to the books written by Him, painstakingly recounting them in a smooth flow..
A truly remarkable book which will leave the reader in awe., reflecting about the higher dimensions of the inner spiritual world. A book which is impossible to put down, once begun-a phenomenon which usually happens only with thrillers and detective novels.

The well authored book filled with plenty of anecdote is a deserving tribute to Om Swami. A wonderful work done by both Ismita and Swami Vidyananda Ji in showcasing the mahatma in Om Swami. I have read all titles of Om Swami and after reading this book I am becoming a fan follower of both the authors. Look forward to an opportunity to meet them and their beloved Om Swami some day.

Well packaged and prompt delivery by Amazon.
The book is absolutely amazing,a wonderful treat and a must read for all those of us who have known Swamiji either in person or through the blogs/ books. The section by Vidyananda Swami is filled with anecdotes of Swamiji's compassion and kindness. The incident about tomatoes is a rib tickler :)
Indeed Ismita and Vidyanand Swami are very very lucky to have met and interacted with Swami ji so closely.
All in all just go ahead and order the book without a second thought.
