As a young energetic adult, Swamiji actively participated in India’s Freedom Struggle against the British. During this time, he was by the side of Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru. His patriotic fervor had rendered him in the British Jails in India for several years, but he always kept the Bhagavad Geeta with him and never gave up in his struggle for freedom.
After this, Swamiji began his spiritual quest, traversing the hills of Rajasthan and searching within. After focused reflection, he came to the conclusion that in the Bhagavad Geeta lies the key to spiritual satisfaction. He made it his sole aim to propagate the message of the Bhagavad Geeta to anyone who desired to learn it. Starting with his very first Geeta Ashram in Mathura, Lord Krishna’s birthplace, Swamiji travelld the world, building 600 Geeta Ashrams worldwide. Geeta Ashram Malaysia is the first Ashram to have been built outside of India. In 1994, Swamiji set up the Geeta Dham in Jodhpur – His vision of spirituality in the midst of the hustle and bustle in this world.
Swamiji left his physical body on 30th March 2000 at the age of 101 years.
Although he is no longer with us, he is always in our hearts. His message lives on and the torch is currently being carried by our Guruma Geeteshwariji.
Guru Maa has been Swamiji’s dikshit since 1977 and has selflessly dedicated herself to the service of the Geeta Ashram. Currently, she is carrying the torch to spread Swamiji’s wishes and is reaching out to people all over the world with the teachings of the Bhagavad Geeta.
