About

Swamini Brahmaprajnananda (43 Years)

Om. I am a traditional teacher of Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, Sanskrit and Vedic chanting. Formerly 

trained and having practiced as a psychologist and counsellor, I was disappointed that the Western 

psychology we studied did not attempt to ‘heal’ a person to wholeness. The solutions offered were 

limited. In discovering Vedanta, I came home to myself.  

Different people need different healing modalities and I conduct individual and group sessions as the 

case may be.

General note: 

Ancient wisdom of Bhagavad Gita and Vedanta

Biological growth takes place for human beings at least till eighteen years. What about emotional and 

intellectual growth? We have seen fifty five year old people throw child like tantrums and twenty year 

olds make mature decisions about finances, relationships and career. There is nothing involuntary or 

automatic about how this happens. Choices are involved. To have a purpose in life, a choice is involved. 

It is not going to drop down from somewhere, however spiritual. To heal from pain, a choice is involved. 

To heal from past patterns and stop them from hijacking the present, a choice is involved. To appreciate 

what is good and noble about oneself and others, a choice is involved. This choice and a need to grow in 

emotional maturity is a strong one and all who seek healing in whichever form, fulfill this need through  

that wonderful choice. We call this self growth which is a necessary condition and a pursuit for everyone 

with no exceptions, if we want to make the most of this human life.   

In addition to self growth, there is a body of knowledge revealed by Bhagavan, which now forms the 

Vedas. The Vedas are a means of knowledge telling us things we cannot figure out ourselves through our 

available means of knowledge such as perception and inference. The Vedas tell us about svarga, the 

understanding of karma and its effects – punya and paapa, the nature of Bhagavan, the different homas 

(fire ritual offerings)  and the expected results, the different types of meditation and its results etc. It is 

and will always be a GPS (global positioning system) for life. The world ‘s most ancient and still living 

civilization, Sanatana Dharma is based on the teachings that came from the Vedas and subsequent 

teachings all flawlessly preserved and handed down by unbroken lineage of guru-shishya parampara. 

For most people, healing is limited to their minds, bodies and energies. Once healed, then what?  Once 

healed, the healed person has to move in the journey of wholeness to discover the truth of who the 

person really is. Vedanta is the ultimate solution for the one who has existential angst, the one who 

wants to discover the real purpose of life, the one who has understood the universal human problem of 

suffering that underlies all the specific and topical problems, the one who still thinks of himself or 

herself as a human being.
