A rare picture of Veena Maharaj (1916-1990), one of the greatest Nadayogis and Musician Saints of modern times, who lived for most of his life in the holy pilgrimage-center of Badarinath situated high up in the Himalayas, playing his Veena and singing to Bhagavan Vishnu. He hardly ever spoke to anybody. He was a maestro of Rudra Veena (which he is holding in his hands) and some of his extremely rare musical recordings were made as part of a UNESCO project.

As for me, he is an embodiment of Love, Freedom and Grace. Wise, Friendly,Childlike,and completely Blissful, he freely opened wonderful doors, this I know.
Swamiji, you and your kirtana are ever chanting in the depth of this heart.
"Badri Narayana Narayana Narayana!"
"Jai Badri Vishal!"
