Nice article and website. I would point out, though, that the Swami Nikhilanand depicted in the photographs is not the same Swami Nikhilanand mentioned in the article.

The Swami Nikhilanand in the picture is a modern day Hindu religious teacher, and a very prominent Swami in the USA. It would be very nice if you could include an article about him, as he has alot of followers in USA, especially in Austin, Houston, Dallas, New York, New Jersey and Virginia. You can learn more about this Swami Nikhilanand from wikipedia:

Some of his audio lectures are available at
