Poojya Mahaswamiji, unlike many other youngsters, had an inclination towards Spirituality, Science and Service rather than Materialism

Sri Sri Sri Dr. Nirmalanandanatha Mahaswamiji

Poojya Mahaswamiji, unlike many other youngsters, had an inclination towards Spirituality, Science and Service rather than Materialism. He adapted an ascetic life in 1998 and underwent formal training in the traditional knowledge systems. His unquenchable thirst for knowledge is evident from his attitude in conferences and functions wherein he listens to the discourses on Vedas, Upanishads and other Shastras like an eager young student.

Poojya Mahaswamiji passed his Diploma with Distinction securing 7th Rank for the State from Government Polytechnic College, Tumkur. Later he passed his graduation in Civil Engineering from National Institute of Engineering, Mysore, and did his M.Tech in Structural Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai. Swamiji was influenced by Life’s Practical Philosophy of Sri Sri Sri Dr. Bala Gangadharanatha Mahaswamiji. With a zeal to understand the eternal truth he studied Master’s degree in Sanskrit Advaitha Vedantha.

The Vision of Poojya Mahaswamiji is to follow the footsteps of his Guru, working tirelessly to “Preserve, Promote, Pursue and Progress with Passion in the Path of his Patriarch”. By considering the yeoman services to society, University of Mysore conferred the Honorary Doctorate of D.Litt. (Honoris Causa) on April 30th 2016 at Sri Kshetra Adichunchanagiri. Mahaswamiji was awarded PhD degree from Gulbarga University for the recognition of the thesis work entitled ‘Natha sampradaya a cultural study’ on 11th March 2019.
