Quintessence guru Swami Ambikananda – promoter of Sathya Sai Baba

Click here to go to my account of Swami Ambikananda from Mauritius, who I knew well in the 1970s as a member of his Quintessence ashram. . It exemplifies the quandaries involved in following almost any Indian guru. Though Ambikananda taught many of the same precepts that Shirdi Baba, Sathya Sai Baba and their forerunner Ramakrishna Paramahamsa did, he never tried to build up a large following or a money cult, nor was he guilty of the abuse of his follower’s faith or persons through illegal acts.
