What's New

ALL NEW Version of our SwamiVenkatesananda.org site is still under development, but progess slowed during the pandemic. To make things more uncertain, the passing of our webmaster has delayed our progress yet again.  Hopefully, we will have a new version of the website up in the next few months. Please check back for additional updates on our progress. And please return to view this page to listen to newly added audio talks. Thank you.   

In the meantime, we are making available for you now a number of the recordings of Swami Venkatesananda's talks and informal discussions that have not previously been available until now.  Please bookmark this page so that you can find these talks as they are added, during the summer of 2022, to the growing list of recordings below.
