When Sri Sri Sri Chandrasekaranatha Swamiji left the earth for the heavenly abode, Sri Sri Sri Ramanandanatha Swamiji , a septuagenarian and a vedantic scholar, became the Madatipati of Sri Adichunchanagiri Kshetra.

Sri Sri Sri Ramanandanatha Swamiji was well advanced in age and was contemplating a worthy successor. When he took ill, he thought of naming an heir to manage the activities of the Kshetra. There was a need for a devout person who could head the Kshetra. At this time, Gangadhariah was not only willing but was also chosen to be the next Madatipati.

It was Sri Sri Sri Ramanandanatha Swamiji who was very happy to receive Gangadhariah and ordain him into sanyasa. The qualities of the young Gangadhariah was very much appreciated by Sri Sri Sri Ramanandanatha Swamiji. Gangadhariah was given the name Sri Sri Sri Balagangadharanatha Swamiji on ordination.

After the demise of Sri Sri Sri Ramanandanatha Swamiji , Sri Sri Sri Balagangadharanatha Swamiji succeeded as the Madathipati of Sri Adichunchanagir Kshetra.
