As one of the rare living Avataras, Sri Swamiji is the Pontiff of Avadhuta Datta Peetham at Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Ashram in Mysore, India. Sri Swamiji is renowned for His Healing and Meditation music and He is considered a divine guide who cultivates the ancient Vedic traditions. He was born fully realized in command of the eight Mahasiddhis (supreme powers) and is a Guru in the Dattatreya Avadhuta lineage. Sri Swamiji honors all religions and teaches that it's possible to reach God by many paths.


Who is Sri Swamiji?

            Some of His devotees describe Him as a teacher, Guru, Sadguru, Parama Guru, guide, musician, composer, Ashta Sidhi, Yogi, man of miracles, healer, doctor, yoga man, magician, spiritual leader and simply say Swamiji; other say he follows the Vedic way. Still others say He is a friend, family member; each person has his own way of looking at Him. Every body has his/her own way describing Him depending on their association and experience.

His Holiness Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji of Mysore, one of the greatest spiritual leaders of the present day is an asset to India and the world at large. He is an incarnation of the Great Cosmic Power. Revival of culture, reformation of society and establishing peace and happiness among mankind and transforming them into godly men is his mission. His methods include: establishing Dharma and Bhakti, singing devotional hymns, reciting the names of the Lord Almighty, guiding their devotees to cross the troubled waters in life, teaching love and compassion,  and inculcating the masses by instilling into them love of God through chorus singing of Bhajans and listening to his meditation-music.

Sri Swamiji is traveling the world to help seekers discover that everything is God. In Him devotees find compassion, love and divine wisdom as He guides them on the path of Yoga sadhana - to discover and realize their true Self. Sri Swamiji conveys an important part of His message through His music, being noted for His namasankirtan. Sri Swamiji's music is devotional and used for spiritual energy transmission. This great master sings self-composed Bhajans in Sanskrit, Hindi, Telugu, Kannada and English and plays Ayurvedic healing ragas on an electronic synthesizer, accompanied by musicians on classical Indian instruments. Devotees around the world claim to have received immense benefit through his concerts, everything from physical healing to spiritual guidance, and great outpourings of divine love.



It is easier to describe what He does than to say who He is. To begin to know who he is one must experience him; one must adopt the attitude of a seeker of God. Sri Swamiji speaks simply and to the heart in fact He is a silent teacher who teaches through your own love and devotion. To experience Him is to begin to know one's own true self.
