Guruji’s Birthday Celebrations

90 years ago on 15th June a special soul was born in the undivided India. Today, his name shines all over the world, and especially in North America. He left India on June 17, 1975 to come to the United States of America to spread the message of Ahimsa, peace, love and truth.

He came to be known as our beloved Guruji !unnamed

Siddhachalam was founded in 1983 by Guruji. He transformed it into a joyful resident community of Jain and non-Jain wedded to the path shown by the Arhats. Siddhachalam became an ashram for all, including animals living there. Today we enjoy Siddhachalam because of Guruji’s vision, leadership and blessings. Siddhachalam is a Teerth – a place of pilgrimage, thanks to Guruji’s extraordinary spiritual powers derived through meditating on the deep secrets of the Namokar Mantra.
