It’s the untiring, dedicated work of the Administrator that sets the tone of the myriads of institutions run by the Mutt-in the social, educational, economic, health, spiritual and technical spheres of society with the avowed aim of improving the status quo. This man, humble, silent but resolute and highly competent, is the mainstay and no wonder, a lot of accolades and titles have come his way, the latest being the Padmasree conferred on him in recognition of his sincere hard work and contribution to society.
All this has made him the humbler for it. ‘Simple living and high thinking’ seems to have been his motto. His spiritual scholarliness has even taken him to United Nations General Assembly to address the delegates. He acknowledges all this as God’s blessings and the blessings of H. H. Sri Sri Bharathitheertha Swamigal and Sri Sri Vidhushekhara Bharathi Mahasannidhanam, the present pontiffs of Sringeri Mutt.
