Swami ji then became a disciple of the successor to his guru, Shankaracharya
Shantanand Saraswati (1913-1997).

Bjarne Hansen captured Dandi Swami Narayananand on video and kindly shared the clip via YouTube:-
recalls: "My wife Vibeke and I spent Newyear's day of 2007 with
in Rishikesh - puja, meditation, spiritual jokes and laughter .... That
was when the short video of him was shot. Now, his English was not good
but anyhow, we were able to communicate. Dandiswami insisted I knew
someone named Eva
in Denmark, and I had to reply to him; 'No.... there are so many Evas
in Denmark, no chance,....' But he insisted and gave me a telephone
Now when we returned from India I made the call and found I knew Eva, indeed she had been my neighbour for a short while in 1982, in Sweden, .. & I had not talked to her for decades.
It's a small world and Rishikesh is magic, thanks to Souls like Dandiswami, since thousands of years ...."
"Dandiswami was very fond of Eva Bergmann as she helped him in small ways such as buying warm clothes etc."
