It is said that knowledge is the greatest offering one can make to Bhagavan. Knowledge as an offering has an assortment of benefits – it encourages investigation, search and research; it helps us share, discuss and gain from each other's enquiry and quest. This same knowledge when blended with the spirit of surrender (saranagathi) and humility has a telling effect – on the seeker, the receiver and the world at large. In fact, we believe that knowledge has to aid self- transformation. It has to inspire us to ‘live a good, clean life’ as Her Holiness, Sri Sathguru Swami Gnanananda Sarasvathi says. People from all walks of life would have observed this in many of the activities of the Sri Vishnu Mohan Foundation (SVMF). In talks, seminars, articles and publications the quest for knowledge has always had self- transformation as the focus.
As we steadily march ahead, the SVMF, is guided by that gentle, unassuming, yet powerful sage from Annakara – Her Holiness Sri Sathguru Swami Gnanananda Sarasvathi, who as Her name itself indicates, delights in ordering Her life by Divine Knowledge. A torch bearer for many, Her Holiness is also the founder of the Sri Gnana Advaitha Peetam in 1975. Her blessings and guidance keeps the life-beat of the Foundation ticking in perfect synchrony with the needs of a knowledge hungry, soul-elevating populace.
