INDIA POST CAPITAL BUREAU
WASHINGTON DC: The week-long discourses by Dr. Vishwamitter, spiritual head of Shree Ram Sharnam, International Spiritual Centre brought an awakening among the devotees, both mainstream Americans and Indian Americans alike.
Dr. Vishwamitter paid his first ever visit to the US from May 21 to 26, 1999. The discourses were held Forest Oak Middle School, Gaithersburg, Maryland.
Dr. Vishwamitter impressed the youth as it provided them an opportunity to clarify many of their doubts and apprehensions about religion. He made them realize that Hinduism is like an ocean that accomodates everything. People can worship whichever way they like.
Dr. Vishwamitter is a bachelor and achieved great professional success as a leading ocular microbiologist at the prestigious All India Medical Sciences, New Delhi. After 22 years of service at the Institute he took voluntary retirement. He renounced everything and went to Manali in the Himalayas, where he spent Six and Half years in search of God. He came into the contact with Premji, successor to Swami Satyanand. After the death of Premji, he moved to New Delhi at the request of the Shri Satyanand Ji Maharaj Dharmarth Trust accepted to be head of the Centre.
His scientific background enables him to convey spiritual truth with a scientific perspective. He doesn't consider himself a Guru, but want to be seen a servant of all.
