His Holiness Dr. Sree Sree Sree Sivakurmara Swamigalu - A sage par Excellence

Ardent follower of Basava Principles, Sree Sree Swamiji was popularly called as Walking God from all sects and religions. His Holiness was known for the triple sacraments; food, shelter and education. His Holiness belongs to the distinct tradition established by Sree Gosala Channabasava, Sree Tontada Siddalingeshwara, Sree Sree Atavee Mahaswamigalu and his predecessor and Guruji Sree Sree Uddana Shivayogigalu. For the un-matching period of 88 years His Holiness headed this holy place. Even at the age of 100+, he was very active, agile, with unfailing sight and stable movements. In all probability in the religious history of any country, he may be the only one, who has been a head of a holy place which is secular in act, for such a long and continuous period.

He attained the heavenly abode on 21st Jan 2019.
