Swamini Vishwakarunananda Ma (i.e Swamini Karuna) is the Swamini appointed by Paramahamsa Vishwananda to manage and nurture the international development of the Bhakti Marga mission and community within the UK.
Swamini Karuna was educated in her youth at a Catholic Convent. Her studies took her to sacred sites around the world in countries such as India, Greece and Turkey. During her professional career, she has worked as a yoga teacher and manages a Holistic Clinic in Central London where orthodox and natural medicine is brought together. She is also the author of books on natural health.
Swamini karuna met Paramahamsa Vishwananda in 2000. The love she felt in her first Darshan was so strong she vowed that wherever Paramahamsa Vishwananda was in the world she would try and see him as much as possible to experience this “Love” again. Despite not looking for a Guru – she knew that Paramahamsa Vishwananda was her Guru.
In 2007, Swamini Karuna became one of the first Atma Kriya Yoga teachers. In 2011, she was initiated as one of the first ever Swamini’s in the Vaishnava tradition.
Her wish as a Swamini is that Paramahamsa’s Divine love flows through her, so as many people as possible get to experience His bliss.
