Several Ghanian Africans embraced the Hindu religion under the guidance of Swami Ghananada Saraswati of Ghana in the 1980s. Swami ji, an African himself, did not find answers given by Christian preachers who were engaged in spreading Christianity among his people.
His search brought him to Rishikesh where he studied the Hindu shastras and decided to become a Sanyasi in the lineage of Swami Shivananda of the Divine Life SOciety.
Several Ghanian Hindus are second generation Hindus and were born into the faith!
Let us join our Hindu brothers in Africa in wishing Lord Ganesha a warm farewell! Lord, come early next year! Ganpati Bappa Morya!
