Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda ..., 27 Mar 2011 [cached]
Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji established Avadhoota Datta Peetham in 1966.
Since the subject relates to Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji of Avadhoota Datta Peetham, Nanjangud Road, Mysore, we thought it might interest our readers and are reproducing the article here.
Swamiji added some more phrases and the cockateel repeated them too - immediately. Even the assistant looked amazed: 'He's teaching it to chant ragas.'
The bird was clearly pleased with itself. It reached towards its new teacher with a foot, then turned upside down for a tummy scratch. Swamiji chuckled, gave it a tickle then moved to the next parrot for a lesson in Indian music.
Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, it turned out, is more than famous, he is revered by millions of people around the world. He's a renowned musician who specialises in creating healing music, performing to huge audiences wherever he goes. His concerts in the Royal Albert Hall in London and the Lincoln Centre in New York were sold out.
He has programmes supporting HIV-positive children, has created schools for poor kids, opened an old-age home in Hyderabad and built eight temples for 'untouchable' Dalit street-sweeper communities in Mysore and Hunsur. In India he's revered as a Satguru, a True Master of ancient lineage, a sort of guru's guru. When he holds concerts at home tens of thousands turn up to listen.
Most importantly, it seems, he's a musical master particularly interested in the influence of birdsong and music on humans as healing. The CD he handed me turned out to be extraordinary: 12 lyrical ragas woven with the songs of birds.

After days of preparation and expectant hearts, the day of Sri Swamiji's arrival was finally here. On Friday, the day of Lakshmi devi, devotees in Dallas were blessed with a most rare treasure, the darshan of our beloved guru, His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji.Hundreds of devotees rushed off from their daily activities to be present when Sri Swamiji set foot in Dallas. The devotees waited - decked in Datta vastrams, with flowers in hand and beautiful smiles adorning their faces - united as one Datta family. Ever benevolent, Sri Swamiji held off arriving until all devotees were able to be present to get the satisfaction of welcoming Him. Upon seeing Him, the crowd released the joy in their hearts with a jubiliant cheer!After taking some time to bless all those present, Sri Swamiji proceeded for home. The Dallas devotees arranged a police escort especially for Sri Swamiji with an entourage of devotees cars to accompany Him home. he Dallas trip was a short one and had only two public events - a meeting for Dallas Datta devotees on Saturday morning and another event for the general public on Saturday evening.

Sri Swamiji Blesses Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple land, April 26, 2008 11AM - 2:30PM Following a meeting with the Hanuman Temple trustees and advisors on Saturday morning, Sri Swamiji proceeded to the Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple site in Frisco for the Datta devotees meeting. Sri Swamiji was as eager to meet and address the devotees as devotees were keen to hear Him. ri Swamiji was so delighted to see the devotees. Keeping in mind the short time, He poured out his heart and shared many thoughts for us to absorb and learn. The highlights of Sri Swamiji's message are: Follow the Guru with Faith in God. He asked all to remember that we rent this planet. This body and all it possesses are not ours when we leave. Instead focus on "Who am I?" In times when there is more confusion, pain and disappointment, do silent meditation on AUM kara. We need to perform Karma to resolve accumulated karma. Swamiji is always thinking about His shishyas and wanting to confer bliss upon them. He is Chitapah not vitapah and always thinks about devotees mind and karma. He takes care of devotees through different paths - shaktipath, upadesha patha, mantra pahta etc. Do not confuse Sadguru's Grace with material success. It must result in inner transformation. Material success is only incidental. Hence Sri Swamiji often recommends action like performing homas, giving donations to remove accumulated karma. Before a doctor performs surgery, he must perform test and prepare you for the surgery. Similarly, Sri Swamiji prepares each of us in the proper way to clear our accumulated karma. He elaborated richly on the importance of clearing Karma - only then will Sri Swamiji give upadesham.
Sri Swamiji was very pleased that as simple, middle class devotees, we are united and working together to pay off the loans and support, with body, mind and spirit, the successful development of the Temple. By doing this we can achieve Tri-Karana shuddhi. Sri Swamiji said that as captain of this Pushpaka Vimana, there is always room for each of us. He offered all devotees to come with Him on this ship. Do seva. Offer the best or move on.
With the firm thought that "Swamiji knows everything" - do daily Hanumanta puja and support this project. e finally described the properties of Emerald and the significance of Emerald Hanumanta for America - the well-being, success, health and prosperity of America. He suggested renting a trailer and performing Hanuman Puja every Saturday in the meanwhile. He asked the devotees for their thoughts (though He knows everything) and lovingly listened as some expressed their ideas to Sri Swamiji. Such is the grace and love of our Guru. ri Swamiji announced that the Sashwata Seva program would be available for the Frisco Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple - VR Raman of Chicago became the first member. ach devotee left the meeting feeling personally touched and energized by Sri Swamiji's concern for their wellbeing and karmic path. For blessed are we, indeed, to have Sri Swamiji and Sri Hanuman's grace upon us.
