Maharshi Maheshananda (Dr. Michael Mamas)
Maharshi Maheshananda is the spiritual leader and visionary of Mount Soma. Maharshi is a Master who brings out ancient Vedic Knowledge, the Knowledge at the base of all religions, in modern terms. He is also the protector of the Knowledge, making sure Knowledge is brought out in its purity.
Maharshi was an honors student in physics and mathematics at Ohio State University prior to obtaining a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine and a Masters in Business Administration. For nearly a decade, Maharshi lived a monastic life, studying with great saints and spiritual teachers from India and around the world. From the wisdom and knowledge he gained, Maharshi derived a profound and practical approach to personal growth and health, one that transcends both traditional and alternative methods.
Maharshi is the only person from the West to ever be awarded the title Adhyatm Vidhya Visharad (mastery of the highest Knowledge of the soul) from Bhagavan Yagnyavalkya Ved Tatavagyan Yogashram, the Sanskrit College at the University of Gujarat, which was given to him in 2007.
Maharshi is one of the rare individuals of our time who exemplifies true universal wisdom and has the ability and willingness to relate this subtle knowledge to the world.
Maharshi’s blog posts, online videos and articles are mere tools, stepping-stones to a deeper knowledge. Please take the time to explore the subtle distinctions and ponder the deep-rooted meaning of this material. You may also be interested in books written by Maharshi.
