What we have is a gift from Him.
What we do with what we have is our gift to Him.
-Swami Chinmayanandaji



Swami Tapovan Maharaj was a pristine glacier of Self-Knowledge through whom flowed the Ganga of Vedantic wisdom. He was a saint of the higher order, a consummate vedantin, a strict teacher, a compassionate mentor, and a poet whose every thought throbbed with ecstatic awareness, and a sage of unsurpassed wisdom and tranquility.

Filled with divine light, the compassionate sage, shared words of wisdom with all the devotees who came to him in search of spiritual knowledge, but rarely did he accept any resident disciples. When Swami Tapovanam did accept a resident disciple, the latter was trained under the strict conditions. There were few who could undergo and survive such hardships, but those seekers who did, were blessed by the Master with Supreme Enlightenment.
