HH Sri Swami Omkarananda has taken up the sacred mission of rejuvenating the spiritual values and cultural traditions of India.
Born in a family steeped in culture, he adopted the Vedic life style from an early age.
He took his Sanyasa from Pujyasri Swami Chidbhavananda, founder of Sri Ramakrishna Tapovanam, Tirupparaithurai.
He studied Vedanta under Pujyasri Swami Paramarthananda, one of the foremost disciples of Pujyasri Swami Dayananda Saraswathi.
Through his eloquent discourses, he drives home the deep insights of the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads, such that even an average person can comprehend them with ease.
He expounds the essence of some of the sacred texts in Tamil, such as Tevaram, Tiruvachakam, Tirumandiram, Tayumanavar’s hymns, Bharatiyar’s songs and in particular Tirukural.
He interacts freely with people of all strata without discrimination of caste, creed, age, economic status or education and attracts them by his compassionate words and friendly demeanour.
It is no exaggeration to say that all those who have been attracted by his teaching are rooted in spirituality and lead a purposeful life of righteousness and love, and enjoy inner peace.
He is actively engaged in many social activities, contributing to the well being of the society through the two Trusts he has set up – Vedanta Sasthra Prachara Trust and Sri Dakshinamurti Seva Samiti.
Under the auspices of Vedanta Sasthra Prachara Trust, he has successfully developed a settlement called Vedapuri in Theni on the bank of the river Mullaiyaru and has established Sri Swami Chidbhavananda Ashramam there.
Under the auspices of Sri Dakshinamurti Seva Samithi, he has constructed a magnificent edifice named Adiguru Sri Prajna Dakshinamurti Vidya Pitham and conducts its affair in a grand manner.
He succeeded Pujyasri Santananda Swamigal as the pontiff of Sri Bhuvaneshwari Avadhuta Vidya Pitham at Pudukkottai, in the lineage of Sri Dattatreya.
He has established Sadguru Santananda Satsangam Trust in Chennai to further enlarge his range of activities for the well being of people.
Tirukkural in every family.
The objective of the programme is to bring about a situation that there are no Tamil speaking people in the world, who have not learnt Tirukkural and followed its teaching.
