Swami Atmaswarupananda

I heartily join in the Birthday Celebrations of Swami Venkatesananda. He is very simple and social. He moves freely with all people. He has got a good personality, with a smiling face and a musical voice. He practises the precept: Adapt, Adjust and Accommodate. He can get on well at any place. He belongs to the category of high class intellects. His articles in many books, journals, magazines, etc. are very fine, precise and appropriate. He has written about great personalities, devotees and the Ashramites in a clear and befitting manner, without any reservation. He is a good critic. He is personal assistant to our Gurudev. He is a good writer and correspondent. He is a good organiser also. He is a powerful speaker. He is an expert in Asanas. He has a pure mind. His heart is very liberal. His mind is receptive of all noble things. He has a childlike Bhava. He freely mixes with people. He sings melodiously, and also dances.

He enjoys Gurudev's Grace to a great extent. To my mind he may become second Krishnananda. He is always contented with anything, just like Lord Venkateswara.

My silent prostrations to him. May the Lord bless him with long life, good health and pace.
