Swami Pradeeptananda Saraswati
Born in culture rich family in the city of Jamnagar, known as “Chhoti Kashi”, swamiji completed his M.A. in philosophy, and then rendered his service as a visiting faculty at D.K.V. Arts and Science College, Jamnagar. In the small age of 16, he started his spiritual journey by coming in contact with Swami Ekrasanand Saraswatiji, the founder of Arsha Darshanalaya. There his desire for freedom was given the proper direction which inculcated the craving for vedantic knowledge in him. With the guidance of Swami Ekrasanandji, he joined the three and half year residential Vedanta course in English medium at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam , anakatti, Coimbatore. The course was conducted by “Gurunamguru” the Great Vedantic Teacher H.H. Swami Shri Dayananda Saraswatiji who laid the foundation of The Gurukulam.

He also studied varied Prakarana Granthas and Sanskrit language with Paninian grammar. At the end of the course, he was given Diksha by Pujya Swamiji and land of Kutch was assigned to him as his Karma Kshetra. Following his Guru’s command, he conducted public Talks on Bhagavadgita at varied places of kutch like Adipur, Pandhro, Anjar, Bhuj, Gandhidham, Madhapar, Mandvi and Mundra.
