Teachings[edit | edit source]
Swami Paramanand's message is simple:Know Thyself. Swami Paramanand tells us that we are the Ocean, but that momentarily we have forgotten who we are and think that we are an individual wave instead. We are in the process of remembering our true essence. It is through understanding and experiencing ourselves that we can reunite with our true soul consciousness and remember who we are and why we have come here. It is then that we may be the playful wave that knows it is the Ocean, and retain a deep peace within the Oneness.
