Swami Sarvapriyananda is a Hindu monk and a follower of Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda’s ordinance. He is an Advaita Vedanta follower. He is serving as head of the Vedanta Society of New York. He has spoken in great detail on topics like the Purpose of life and Who am I. In my experience, he is one of the most simple speakers to understand any topic he speaks about.

“You are never alone. You are eternally connected with everyone.”

Swami Sarvapriyananda

According to the Advaita perspective, there is no logical answer on the Meaning of life for those who live in material life (Maya) will never satisfy with any answer provided to them. Further, he adds it is not a mystery to solve it’s an appearance to be experienced. It is like asking the cause for casualty, it’s the illusion. It will never end until you Meditate and walk on a Spiritual path.


“Your greatest awakening comes, when you are aware about your infinite nature.”

Swami Sarvapriyananda
About: The enlightened one, they don’t bother about the question on the meaning of life or any other question, because they see life as it is. An Enlightened being has answers, they don’t have questions.
About: Swamiji speaks on Ashtavakra Gita – that is the ultimate truth, the highest form of reality and beyond that there is nothing. It can be dangerous if you don’t have any background in Spirituality.

“There is neither creation nor destruction, neither destiny nor free will, neither path nor achievement. This is the final truth.”

Swami Sarvapriyananda
About: Swamiji explains how one can withdraw our senses by following certain practices. It’s everything with the mind, we have to control our mind in a way where he tranquilizes, and we don’t get attracted to any senses.

“Feel nothing, know nothing, do nothing, have nothing, give up all to God, and say utterly, ‘Thy will be done.’ We only dream this bondage. Wake up and let it go.”

Swami Sarvapriyananda on his latest podcast has spoken about the nature of self, this includes the answers one must have about him or herself, the knowledge of self is the premise on which the question of the meaning of life stands.

“I, the One, illumine this body and also reveal this universe. Therefore, mine is all this universe or indeed nothing is mine.” Inspired by this verse from the Ashtavakra Gita, Swami Sarvapriyananda speaks on the nature of the Self.
