Sri Adichunchanagiri Mahasamsthana Math




Sri Sri Sri Balagangadharanatha Swamiji has a deep concern for the less privileged and realized the need to play a significant role in the progress of the society. Swamiji’s vision revolves around spiritual, educational, healthcare, environmental, social and moral & cultural activities that would be beneficial in all aspects.

Prayer, meditation and yoga are made mandatory in all educational institutions of the Math. Priests are trained on Sanskrit and Veda to revive the lost vedic glory. Swamiji has built new temples and renovated many old temples. Sri Math promotes music, dance, folk art and drama through BGS Cultural Centres. Sri Math organizes an Annual All Religious Conference to propagate ways and means of maintaining peace and harmony in the world.

Realizing the need of imparting knowledge, His Holiness initiated Sri Adichunchanagiri Shikshana Trust ®. After three decades of its establishment, the Trust manages more than 400 educational institutions across the country where more than 70,000 students receive education. Apart from schools and colleges, the Sri Math runs orphanages, hostel for poor students and schools for the physically and visually challenged.

A passion to provide healthcare to all, resulted in the establishment of Sri Adichuchanagiri Institute of Medical Sciences, where people from all over the state are benefitted. The hospital’s trained health volunteers would identify and treat patients from villages who otherwise would not have access to such medical facilities. Many medical camps on various health-related issues are conducted regularly for the benefit of the poor. Eventually, hospitals, clinics and community centres were established across the state.

Sri Sri Sri Balagangadharanatha Swamiji formed Karnataka Vanasamvardhana Trust ® to improve the forest wealth and planted five crore saplings. Sri Math has also constructed check dams, percolation tanks, farm ponds and underground tanks.

Recognizing Sri Sri Sri Balagangadharanatha Swamiji’s contributions in all spheres of life, many national and international organizations have come forward to honour Sri Swamiji. The yeoman services of His Holiness in religious and spiritual fields were recognized by the Confederation of Hindu Temples of North America and Europe who have conferred the title of ‘Sanatana Dharma Ratna’.

In spite of Swamiji’s reluctance, many awards and titles have been bestowed upon him.
