Y.D.S. Chicago is guided by H.D.H. Hariprasad Swamiji. The goals of our organization are multi-faceted, all leading towards universal peace and harmony that P.P. Swamiji envisions.
His vision of spirituality is expressed in His message of ‘Atmiyata’, which is a form of spiritual harmony that transcends the emotions of stubbornness, envy and ego. With His inspiration, guidance, and blessings, millions of individuals today walk the path of spirituality to attain ultimate spiritual salvation.
H.D.H. Hariprasad Swamiji’s life slogan, “Yuvako maru sarvasva chhe” – Youth is my life, signifies the special place He has for Youth in His heart. He always emphasizes the extraordinary potential present in a youth: “Yuvan dhare tevo thai shake” – A youth has the potential to become what he chooses to become. Through His selfless love, compassionate care and divine blessings, He has given the modern youth a new meaning and direction in life, with a special emphasis on keeping the right company and achieving excellence in all aspects of life.
This website is created to give you a small glimpse into Swamiji’s life’s work and to spread his message of harmony. This site is also the means by which we can provide information about regular sabha’s as well as special events to those living in the greater Chicagoland area.
