Affectionately called Guruji by his devotees, His Holiness Maharanyam Sri SriMuralidhara Swamiji renounced his worldly ties at an early age to partake in the redeeming of Sanathana Dharma and the path of Bhakthi. His Divine Incarnation was at the Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu in Southern India. His unmatched respect and love for Vedas and other ancient scriptures of our Dharma made Him dedicate His life to ensure that every home was led to the path of Bhakti, and Nama (the Divine Name of God) sweetened every tongue. Sri Swamiji lays utmost stress on the significance of Nama Kirtan (Chanting the Divine names of God) as the easiest & the most practical path to liberation in this age.
Sri Sri Swamiji, in his journey in the path of love, inculcates a spirit of universal acceptance, coupled with intense faith and steadfast devotion on the spiritual seeker. Sri Swamiji believes that protecting Vedas is of paramount importance as this will in turn enable society to get rid of its trials, tribulations and evils, and to this end he directs all his activities and teachings. As an ardent believer in Sri KanchiMahaperiyava’s movement for Veda Samrakshana, Sri Sri Swamiji established the SandeepaniGurukulam Trust, the intention of which is to perpetuate learning of the Vedas, which is verily the life line of BharataDesa and the essence of Sanathana Dharma. This is accomplished by running Yajur and Sama Veda Patasalas in traditional style
To overcome the ill-effects of Kaliyuga, to be liberated from the bondages and tragedies of human existence, and progress towards achieving the highest state of liberation and attanining oneness with the Divine, like the great saints Sri ChaitanyaMahaprabhu, Sri BhagavannamaBodhendra, Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Sri Yogiramsuratkumar, Namadev, Tukkaram, SadasivaBrahmendra and the Azhwars, Sri Swamiji pleads “Nama Sankirtan” as the only path, and the easy one as well, and repeatedly stresses on the same. To this end, Sri ChaitanyaMahaprabhu Nama Bhiksha Kendra founded by Sri Sri Swamiji, initiates Satsangs in various parts of India and abroad to regularly chant the Maha Mantra:
“Hare Rama Hare Rama RamaRama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna KrishnaKrishna Hare Hare”
Nama Dwaar, a movement to propagate Maha Mantra Nama Sankirtan worldwide, is an initiative of Sri Sri Swamiji. Sri Sri Swamiji strongly proclaims that the path of Nama Kirtan as the only lifeline for the masses in this current Age.
