    Sri Pujya Ganapati Sachidananda Swami

    Sri Ganapati Sachidananda Swami is great. When he was a child, his grandfather was a freedom fighter. He would make runs to take rice to villagers. Swami always wanted to go with him, and once he was allowed to do so. When the soldiers stopped the cart along the way, they poked through the sacks of rice in which Swami was hiding, and barely missed him. Even during this, he did not let out a cry, and when they arrived, very happily His grandfather found he was alright.

    When he was a child, He was not allowed to speak English, and His grandmother would not allow anyone to do so. She would even punish them if they did so! Pahi Pahi Gajanana is a song He sang many times.

    He teaches many things, and sometimes He teaches different things. He tells that the true atheist is one who differentiates between Vishnu and Shiva.

    He tells that we should chant the names of God, and this purifies ourselves. It helps to create fresh breath.

    In all His teachings one can see that it's highest consciousness. True bliss and wisdom.

    Swami says that Kannada is a good language to learn. Also it is very good to learn languages, and we learn so much from them.

    Very many bhajans that Swami sings are so beautiful. Pahi Pahi Gajanana is wonderful, as are the ones Gana Ganamunaku Patiyena, and bhajans of Shiva and others.

    Trishatinama Stutimudite is a beautiful bhajan of Sri Lalita. This one is so beautiful to sing, and Swami leads beautifully. Also one he wrote in earlier times was Alandu Alandu Va Va.

    Many of these are available. Swami says that if one takes one step towards him, He takes one thousand towards the person, but if one takes one step away, then Swami takes a hundred steps away. So He is close and close if we go towards Him, but further and further if we go away from Him.

    Swami recommends the Gita, and the Bhagavatam, and the others. Guru Gita is a secret text, and in fact very secret. It's spoken by Shiva to Parvati, and contains the greatest secrets of yoga.

    Swami says that one should not change gurus. However he also says that you are your own guru.

    In fact in Bhagavatam, story of Dattatreya is that He had 24 gurus. Earth, and all others.

    But, though Swami said once, you are your guru, the most of the time, guru is recommended. One should never touch the guru's feet without asking. It makes sense. One should not do this certainly. Also the same goes for hugging.

    Animals are calm and happy with Swami.

    He seems to be a very ardent devotee of Lord Hanumana... from time and again, I get numerous songs, both composed by swamiji himself as well as some taken from other sources, in my youtube feed. Love all his devotional songs, esp. the Hanumana ones!

    Here are a few from my bookmark at Youtube for an example:

    Thanks for starting this thread! Good one!

    I've gone back and forth with Swamiji a few number of times. (Incidentally, I wrote 'Pujya Sri' in reverse order.)

    To start with, I could never say anything about him... He has done more than I ever have. I have always had a close feeling to Him.

    An ancient (Buddhist) person from India told -- we should never say, "This was well said, this was not well said," i.e., saying some things are good and some are not, that a Bodhisattva has said.

    And indeed - I understand this and follow it...

    So --

    Always I felt close connection to Swami.... and. . . I can understand what the Buddhist said....

    . .

    I first discovered Swami a photo, and I knew there was very special about him.



    I love Amma (Sri Amritananda Mayi Ma), and I can understand what Appaji says, that one should not switch gurus....

    I can understand how it even seems.... too much...

    Life is so delicate...


    Amma and Appaji, I liked that so much.

    'Ma, Ma, Ma' is very easy to say.


    It's a very curious thing, and I believe one can learn so much.... From the aspect of not choosing... That is, dust in the eyes.. dust on the fingers... that comes from discrimination... if we discriminate, we create dust in the world, we do not create clarity....

    But if we create clarity, if we create calmness, spaciousness,


    Then we really create beauty. Peaceful, beautiful... spacious.

    So I guess I want to say that,

    I love Amma and Appaji

    very much.
