Swamiji is the founder and Pīṭhādhipati (Spiritual Director) of the Soma Matha. A matha is a monastery or a teaching center. Swamiji has been inclined toward spiritual service since early childhood. Around the age of 20, he renounced worldly pursuits to conduct intense tapasya (austerities) for spiritual realization and the peace of the world. Swamiji has studied the Vedic Sciences deeply and has attained a high level of mastery of Yoga, Mantra, Ayurveda, Vedic Astrology, and Vastu Shastra. He has taught the Vedic Sciences to sincere students from all back grounds for over 20 years, and has provided counsel and spiritual services for various Temples, Churches, and other spiritual organizations in the US and India. The Soma Matha Spiritual Center was built to help spread Swamiji's teachings and blessings to a greater audience. Swamiji works tirelessly to preserve the authenticity of the Vedic Sciences, which have been revealed to the world by the ancient Sages for peace, health, prosperity, and liberation from suffering for all in the world.
