My Life

This category of Swami Balendu's blog is for all those who want to get to know more about him. How has Swami Balendu changed in his life and why? He grew up to be a guru but after three years of intensive meditation in a cave left his position. Why and how did that happen?

This all you can find out by reading the entries of this category. Each Sunday a new entry is added when Swami Ji tells more of his life. Sometimes there are details of only one incident and sometimes he explains a whole timeframe in just a few words. In this way very clearly what he thinks and feels and every reader automatically puts himself in Swami Balendu's position thinking 'What would I have done?'

Life is an ever-changing process and Swami Balendu nicely describes how these changes took place for him.
