About Premananda

Finding no fulfilment in career and relationship in England, and driven by a deep question, John David (formerly Premananda) began his spiritual journey. This began in Japan, and continued for many years in India with Osho, until he eventually arrived at the doorstep of his final master, Papaji, himself a disciple of the renowned Master, Ramana Maharshi. Here, twenty years of spiritual searching ended when the Self revealed itself and he saw that this was his true nature.

John David has been a spiritual teacher for 20 years, or in his words 'a messenger' of his Master, Papaji. The message that comes through John David is to be quiet, to become still, and to discover that we are the very happiness and love that we are seeking.

He is also an artist, author and filmmaker living in Open Sky House, an International Spiritual and Arts community that formed around him in Germany in 2004. The Community is open for anybody who has come to a point in their life where inner freedom or awakening is the first priority. Anyone is welcome to visit the community for a satsang evening or as a guest or helper.

It is here that John David works closely with the residents and holds regular retreats as well as broadcasting live SatsangTV via the Internet three evenings a week. You can engage in dialogue with him by entering into the meeting live using Skype. During the week you can ask questions by email which he will then answer in the next meeting. On his website there is also a comprehensive archive of 300 Meetings since 2009, in seven different languages.

In 2013, another Open Sky community with the same priority of awakening was founded near Kiev, Ukraine.
