President, Sri Adichunchanagiri Shikshana Trust ®
Heading the Adichunchanagiri Mahasamsthana as its 72nd pontiff
Poojya Mahaswamiji, unlike many other youngsters, had an inclination towards Spirituality, Science and Service rather than Materialism. He adapted an ascetic life in 1998 and underwent formal training in the traditional knowledge systems. His unquenchable thirst for knowledge is evident from his attitude in conferences and functions wherein he listens to the discourses on Vedas, Upanishads and other Shastras like an eager young student.
Poojya Mahaswamiji, aided by his educational background and interest in Engineering has incorporated Modern Technologies and revolutionized the functioning of all the Institutions of Shikshana Trust. He has taken up the initiative of introducing computerized working environment in all the Academic and Administrative activities of the institutions.
The Vision of Poojya Mahaswamiji is to follow the footsteps of his Guru, working tirelessly to “Preserve, Promote, Pursue and Progress with Passion in the Path of his Patriarch” His Holiness was conferred with “Doctor Honoris Causa” (Honorary Doctor of Science) by the University of Mysore, Karnataka in 2016.
Education is a very important tool for everyone to succeed in life and get something different. Knowledge gained throughout the education period enables each and every individual to develop confidence in them to achieve better prospects in life, and hence promotes career growth. Education improves our knowledge, skill, confidence level and personality. It empowers us intellectually to interact with others in our life. It is the way to social development, economic growth and technological development. BGSIAS plays a vital role in integrating an individual with his/her society in maintaining the preservation of culture. It is an essential prerequisite of modernization that enables people to know the world beyond their own surroundings and transforms them to become humaneness in outlook and world view. BGSIAS is the center, where children would learn to serve the society. Educators are like deities inside the temple. Never in the past, had mere infrastructure made institutions great. The strength of any institution is its educators. Hence, the responsibility of educators along with the Principal is quite significant. With this value and understanding, we hope our educators of BGSIAS will take the institution to next horizon, for betterment of nation as a whole.
I implore Lord Kalabhyraveshwara Swamy and His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Sri Sri Padmabhushan Dr. Balagangadharanatha Mahaswamiji to bestow his choicest blessings upon one and all.
