His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Tridandi Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji was born on the 3rd of November 1956 in Andhra Pradesh, India.
At the age of 23, he embraced sanyasa (renunciation of material life to become an ascetic) and became a Spiritual Acharya, and a practicing guru in the Sri Vaishnava Tradition.
His Holiness has focused on improving human lives through Vedic wisdom, education and service. He ardently adheres to the Sri Vaishnava Tradition’s core belief – that every human being, irrespective of nationality, caste, creed, race and gender, is equal in God’s creation and is entitled to a healthy life filled with strength, confidence, love and perpetual bliss.
For over three decades, Swamiji has been propagating Universal Oneness in his spiritual, humanitarian and educational services. His Holiness, India’s enlightened spiritual and humanitarian leader, incessantly strives to promote world peace and harmony through the propagation of Vedic wisdom, spiritual practices, religious tolerance, non-violence, the joy of sharing, and mutual respect for all living beings. His Holiness coined the following phrases:
“Serve All Beings as Service to God!”
“Worship Your Own, Respect All!”
His Holiness has tirelessly promoted humanitarian services. These include education, environmental, health, free food, natural calamity and disaster relief services, etc.
Ever cheerful, ceaselessly active, unmindful of his bodily discomforts but always concerned about the welfare of others, His Holiness Swamiji radiates hope and joy wherever he goes and effortlessly promotes the wisdom of the Vedas and ancient seers. To the inquisitive, he is an unparalleled spiritual teacher; to the intellectual, he is an erudite scholar and philosopher; to the suffering, he is an ambassador of peace; and to the grief stricken, he is ever-helping and inspiring.
He is the embodiment of rare virtues, the epitome of boundless love for humanity and a holy saint with deep intellectual and spiritual sensitivity. He shares a deep concern and compassion for society as a whole and has emerged as a Universal Guru of the 21st century. Attempting to represent his entire essence would result in a pale imitation, like holding a candle against the sun.
