Bramlin Swami Vishudha Nanda Ji
Bramlin Swami Vishudha Ji was a Self-realized saint and philosopher, an allopathic and ayurvedic doctor, and a master in the ancient Hindu tradition of Vedanta. Swami Ji was well-educated in Sanskrit, astrology, and palmistry and was known to study scholarly books all through the night. He was a committed humanitarian who provided free medicine and treatment to the mountain people surrounding Phool Chatti Ashram. When Swami Ji died in 1977, given his high state of development, his body was set in the lotus position as his soul would be in Maha Samadhi. A small temple was constructed at the ashram to contain the body where he is daily taken care of (prayed over, fed, etc.). His soul continues to oversee and protect this ashram. On 19th June, the anniversary of his death, hundreds of disciples from all over come to Phool Chatti Ashram to honor this great Saint. There is no doubt that Bramlin Swami Vishudha Nanda Ji remains a powerful force here at Phool Chatti – clearly evident to those sensitive to the subtle energies.
Swami Dev Swarup Nanda Ji
Since 1977, Phool Chatti Ashram has been under the able care and guidance of Swami Dev Swarup Nanda Ji. His expertise in Ayurvedic medicine and Vedic astrology was gained as a disciple of the late Swami Vishudha Nanda Ji. In recent years, the current Swami Ji has modernized the living accommodations at Phool Chatti Ashram, to include electricity, phone and modern toilet systems, greatly expanded gardens, and initiated the Yoga and Meditation Program. It is the result of his excellent administration that Phool Chatti Ashram has successfully retained its traditional character while acquiring the infrastructure to provide comfort and convenience to its guests and residents.
