♦ Description : “Comments from Arnaud Desjardins _ Fourth cover- “The path proposed by Swami Prajnanpad consists in hearing with an open heart and an open mind often unexpected, confusing affirmations, even shocking at first sight, to think about it, with all the resources of our intelligence and to see, apart from we and ourselves, whether what we observe confirms or the truth of these words. What we are intimately convinced of, not because a teacher told us so, but because he has shown it to us, naturally transforms our perception of everyday reality and changes the way we respond to it. – Arnaud Desjardins.
“Swami Prajnanpad is a Hindu guru. He was born under the name of Yogeshvar Chattopadhyaya in a poor Brahmin family. After the death of his parents, when he is about fifteen years old, he is taken care of by his older brother. He studied physics at the University of Calcutta from 1912 to 1918. In 1921 he met his master Niralamba Swami (1877-1930) and in 1925 he became samnyasin, a renunciant. In September 1930, upon the death of his master, he moved to Channa Ashram as successor and took the name of Swami Prajnanpad.
He discovered the writings of Freud in 1925 at the library of the University of Benares where he teaches. Familiar with traditional Eastern texts, he has integrated data from sources as different as the Indian tradition, Western physics and psychoanalysis. He refers to his spiritual teaching as Adhyatma yoga.
He is known in France for having been the spiritual master of Arnaud Desjardins (1925-2011) and Daniel Roumanoff (1936). He made two trips to France, one in 1966 to Bourg La Reine with Arnaud and Denise Desjardins, another in 1973 in Normandy invited by Daniel and Colette Roumanoff.”
