HH Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji - 1 An introduction.

An introduction of HH Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji.
HH Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji was born at Mekedatu in southern India on May 26, 1942. A Moslem saint predicted to His parents that their child would have supreme wisdom and knowledge and was destined to uplift mankind.

The holy Mother of Sri Swamiji
In the pious confluence of the rivers Kaveri, Arkavati and Gupta Gamini is situated the village of Mekadatu in Karnataka State, India. This sacred place is famous as "Agastya Kshetra" i.e. the pilgrim center sanctified by Sage Agastya. A pious Brahmin by the name of Linganne Sarma lived in the village. His wife was Savitri. The couple were ritualistic, kind and noble. In the pleasant season of spring, in the month of Fisakha, on the fifth day of the brilliant fortnight (the day on which Adi Sankaracharya was born in 7th century) the divine child Jayalakshmi was born.

She was beautiful and had a divine, noble power of attraction. She radiated mercy, peace and piety as she grew up. She was a source of endless joy to her parents. She worshipped Lord Shiva (Sangameswara) daily and served the saints and sages. She was initiated by a Muslim Fakir. As a result of severe penance she attained God realization and divine powers. She used to enlighten people regarding righteous living and helped them progress in the service of God. With her spiritual powers, she cured the sick and suffering. She relieved many people of their problems with her divine help. Eventually she married Sri Narasimha Sastry. She was a dutiful wife and gave birth to the incarnation of Lord Dattatreya.

Her child is a perfect Yogi, the embodiment of Truth - Knowledge - Bliss (Sat - Chit - Ananda). The child named Satyanarayana is none else than our beloved Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji who feeds us throughout the world with a diet of Divine Knowledge.

The Actual Birth
- occurred on a rock in the Kaveri river. His mother Jayalakshmi was in deep meditation and the child was born covered with holy ash. The child was named Satyanarayana. His mother, whom the Swami calls His first Guru, initiated Him into spiritual life before her passing in 1951. Satyanarayana completed His education like other children, but found school had nothing to offer Him. He was endowed at birth with great knowledge and power.

Even as a child, he organized satsangs and taught bhajans to His friends, and performed "siddhis" to entertain them, such as turning tree leaves into sweets. For some time He performed various mundane jobs to earn a living, such as school teacher and postal worker. All along, however, he had been serving his fellow humans, helping them with their problems. Through his miraculous powers He was able to understand their situations, knowing their past, present , and future and helped them to overcome difficulties. Some of them became his first disciples who were soon to be followed by more. He sang bhajans and kirtans for them and started giving yoga classes in small village huts or on river banks, while he was wandering the countryside as a monk. He acquired a following which demanded all of His time an attention. In 1966 He moved to the present site of the Mysore Ashram, which in the early days was only a straw hut in a field. It was there at Mysore that He became Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji . Since then Sri Swamiji has been helping people in His unique way. People come to Him for help with their worldly affairs, or to become healed of physical afflictions, or for guidance in their spiritual practice. Many come to hear His beautiful and powerful songs, which draw the heart and mind to God or to celebrate the special Hindu holidays in the old vedic traditions.

I have heard about Sri Ganapathy Sachidananda Swamiji from my sister who lived in Mysore. I want to know if the Ashram has a Ayurvedic Clinic and if medicines are available.
Is it a coincidence or a divine play? Sri Sathya Sai Baba was named as Satyanarayana in his childhood and Sri Sachidananda swamiji was also named Satyanarayana by his parents. Both the avataars, one having lived (Baba) and the other (H H Sachidananda swamiji) living at the same time.
