Swami Nikhilanand, affectionately known as Bhaiya Ji (respected brother), is a disciple of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj and a spiritual leader at JKP Radha Madhav Dham. JKP Radha Madhav Dham is a nonprofit, religious, educational, and charitable organization whose aim is to reveal the eternal knowledge of the Upnishads (Vedas), the Gita and the Bhagwatam, etc. and to impart the practical process of divine upliftment called ‘raganuga bhakti’ or ‘divine love consciousness.’

Swami Nikhilanand lives at the Radha Madhav Dham ashram, a beautiful temple and ashram on 200 acres near Austin, Texas. Born in Canada, he worked for many years as a professional wilderness guide in the remote regions of British Columbia. He took his first solo trip into the wilderness at the age of 16. At the age of 17, he left for New Zealand and Australia, where he toured on mountain bike for a year. Underlying his spirit of adventure was a deep spiritual longing. His life-long search led him to India, where he met Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj, our beloved Shree Maharajji.

Under the guidance of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, he studied Sanskrit scriptures, meditation and devotional music, and found the inner fulfillment he had been seeking.

He was given the renounced order of sanyas, and with the blessings of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj, he leads chanting meditation and offers talks and workshops throughout North America. He effortlessly bridges the gap between East and West and gives us practical insight into how to improve our everyday life, inspiring us to awaken our inner spiritual potential.
