Pranams at the lotus feet of dear Pujya Swami Tattvavidananda ji. It is our greatest fortune that we came across such a wonderful, simple and humble swamiji, who is dispassionate and propagator of Vedantic message. Swami Tattvavidananda ji is a beloved disciple of Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati of Arsha Vidya Gurukulam. Swami Tattvavidananda ji is an eminent Vedanta Scholar, an expert exponent of Vedantic treatises, epics, Bhagavad Gita and many Upanishads.
Swamiji has been handed over the deep tradition of vedas by his father and grandfather. Under their tutelage, he has excelled in Vedic studies. Later he went to a traditional Gurukulam and learned from eminent scholars. In his pre-monastic life, Swamiji was a bright scholar in chemistry. He earned his PhD in Chemistry from Andhra University and had pursued a successful scientific and academic career before giving it up to pursue higher goal of life. Meanwhile, he retained his vedic roots, and at the behest of his well-wishers submitted a doctoral thesis on Vedas and was awarded a Gold Medal and a second doctoral degree in Sanskrit. His understanding of Vedanta assumed completion upon meeting his Spiritual Guru, Swami Dayananda Saraswati. Since then, Swamiji dedicated his life to Self-realization, and propagation of the ancient treasure of teachings to the common masses.
Swamiji has given many discourses to various national and international audience on a variety of topics starting from a discourse on practical sadhana for day to day life to an intense treatment of Upanishads, Gita, Vedanta Dindima and the like. Swamiji was honored with the title “Vidya Nidhi” by Sri Sankaracarya of Pushpagiri Matha.
With all his knowledge and wisdom, Swamiji is full of humility, a down-to-earth personality. There are no roundabout ways in Swamiji’s teachings. He hits the nail straight on its head. His teachings are straightforward and they are full of Viveka, Vichara and Vairagya. His teachings act as a reviving and strong tonic to ease ourselves from this material existence and think beyond. Things are kept simple as they are in his teaching, and are not made complex with intellectual arguments or debates. Swamiji is a keen and strong observer. He brings even a minuest incident or scene into the teaching and highlights some of the subtle points.
Swamiji is a wonderful speaker, a speaker with clarity, vision and force that can at once better the thinking of the hearer. We immensely enjoy Swamiji’s teachings, and his audio discourses like Uddhava Gita and Vedanta Dindima etc. Swamiji hold retreats regularly at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, Saylosburgh. Generally his Thanksgiving retreat at Saylosburgh Ashram is a popular one, as many would be able to spend an unbroken three day satsang with him.
