His Holiness Parama Pujya Dr. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji is the Founder Pontiff of Avadhoota Datta Peetham at Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Ashrama in Mysore, India. Sri Swamiji is renowned for His Healing and Meditation music and He is considered a divine guide who promotes the ancient Vedic traditions.
Sri Swamiji has been a leading light in the conceptualisation and propagation of Music for Meditation & Healing. Sri Swamiji's music is soothing, relaxing and amazingly articulate. Sri Swamiji understands the varying vibrational qualities of the different Ragas - the musical modes of the classical Indian music. During concerts, He creates an ocean of sound, playing music that is at once relaxing and soothing, interspersed with passages that are stimulating and energizing. Sri Swamiji has been touring the globe for over 20 years popularizing the ancient "Raga Ragini Vidya". Sri Swamiji's main instrument is the synthesizer – the Datta Veena as He calls it - which is capable of producing sounds of many instruments. The versatility of the instrument coupled with the genius of Sri Swamiji produce the ultimate musical effect with unusual artistic tapestry.
Sri Swamiji is the living example of divinity personified. He is relentlessly engaged in fulfilling God’s mission to help mankind to revel in the glory of the Eternal Spirit. His mission has been to awaken the dormant consciousness of man and lift it to the higher planes of existence whereupon he is freed from the shackles of worldly bondage.
