My humble salutations in the Divine feet of Satguru,

As pre-indicated by Swami Vikraman during his discourse in Omaha last month (August 99), I am taking this opportunity to summarize and document my experiences of my meeting him for his website.  Of course, it is not possible to write everything but I will try to underscore key aspects while being brief and precise in this write-up.

I have been a disciple of Yogiraj Vethathiri Maharishi, the founder president of World Community Service Center for close to 25 years.  More recently, I have become a Kundalini Meditation Master under the personal guidance of Guruji Mahan H.H. Paranjothiyar, founder president of Universal Peace Foundation.  As a result, I have been a practitioner of Kundalini Yoga.  But prior to this practice, born a Hindu by birth, as a child, I was introduced to the worship of Lord Hanuman, the avatar of Lord Shiva, by my beloved father and thus I believe I was ordained to meet Vikraman Swami!

In meeting Swami Vikraman I was able to perceive the image of Lord Hanuman firmly etched on his forehead and listening to him no doubts remained that he is a Divine Saint and a true instrument of Almighty. He repeatedly emphasizes that "God is one." Whether one worships Almighty in "Form," Formless-Form" or as "Formless" it is the same.  His method is clearly based on "Japa" or reciting "Bhajans" (Prayers from the heart) or "Bhakti Yoga" or the "Path of devotion" which he clearly demonstrated for me is indeed a powerful tool.  I am thankful to him and Almighty for this splendid opportunity bestowed on me. I am sure by the Grace of Almighty I will continue to grow under His guidance and benedictions.

Respectfully and humbly submitted,

Dr. Manoj Sharma, Omaha, NE, USA
