About Shri Datta Swami


His Holiness Sri Datta Swami (Dr. J Venugopala Krishna Murthy) is a unique combination of a spiritual and scientific genius. He is a scholar par excellence in the scriptures of world religions including Hinduism, Christianity, Islam and Buddhism. He is a retired professor of chemistry in Vijayawada, India. His mission is to reveal divine knowledge that http://www.dcmessageboards.com/style_image...s/textcolor.gif

Shri Datta Swami’s innate genius was obvious from early childhood. Without any prior learning, He spontaneously started composing hymns and prayers at the age of eight, in the ancient and intricate Sanskrit language. By the age of eleven, He was writing poems, epics, stotrams (paeans) and philosophical books by the hundreds. Sanskrit scholars were dumbfounded seeing the literary prowess and unparalleled philosophical depth of the compositions of Swami at this young age. His prophecies were also a source of awe for people.


At the age of 15, Swami began engaging in scholarly debates with the world’s topmost Hindu scholars during His stay in Varanasi, India. Some of His spectacular victories in these debates include those with the traditional scholars of various schools of Hinduism and other religions to bring out Universal Spirituality. One of His greatest achievements is the composition of the Sanskrit philosophical work ‘Trimata Samanvaya Bhashyam’. This composition is a synthesis of the three schools of Vedic philosophy namely the Monistic, Qualified Monistic and Dualistic, which have remained unreconciled for many centuries. Swami obtained a Ph.D. in chemistry from the Allahabad University, India, at the age of 19, which is an incredible feat. He published several original research papers in Chemistry in various international journals. At the age of 30, He became a professor in chemistry and has published several original research papers in international journals.


Great scholars and saints have recognized that Swami is not merely a genius but an embodiment of Divinity. Numerous devotees of Swamiji have experienced spectacular miracles in His presence. Two devotees had a simultaneous vision of the Vishwarupa (Cosmic form of the Lord). Swami once appeared in three different towns at the same time and witnesses in all three places assure that Swami had dinner with them and retired in their respective places that night. To many devotees, Swami has appeared in the forms of different deities and forms of God such as Lord Dattatreya, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Venkateshwara, Lalita, etc. He has also appeared to many devotees as some past incarnations of God such as Rama, Krishna, Jesus, Sai Baba, Narasimha Saraswati, Akkalkot Maharaj etc. He has healed many devotees of various serious illnesses and protected devotees’ lives and property. Swami says that miracles attract only the lowest level of devotees and that His greatest miracle is ‘His brilliant and wonderful divine knowledge’. This knowledge has never been revealed by anybody sofar and is not to be found in any book or religious text. Hence we are interested in propagating this knowledge. Swami says that this is the right knowledge present in the scriptures and is revealed most clearly now.


His closest devotees recognize Him to be the cotemporary incarnation of Lord Dattatreya (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva). His mission of spreading divine knowledge all over the world and establishing world peace is in fact the Lord’s Divine Mission. He has written several books to disseminate His knowledge among people. He has also written several hymns to promote devotion. He is now preaching the Divine Knowledge to one and all. Recently He was also awarded an honorary membership of the Argentine Parliament of World Religions.


Several scholars from all over India and abroad have been constantly sending E-Mails in appreciation of the divine discourses given all over India and also to foreign countries through teleconferences. Dr. Nikhil from U.S.A. says, “Swami is the Genius predicted long back by Nostradamus, who says that a scientist and a scholar in all scriptures of the world comes from a country covered by three seas (India) having Thursday as the holy day, will unify all the religions in the world and interpret with science to bring world peace”. There was request from a foreign University to formulate all the divine knowledge of Swami as a course for study.


About ‘Sri Datta Jnana Prachara Parishat’


Sri Datta Jnana Prachara Parishath was established in the year 2004 for the purpose of propagation of the Divine knowledge preached by Sri Datta Swami (Swami).


The Trust has so far published a book on ‘Divine Discourses by Datta Swami at Mumbai’. It brought out one edition of our bi-monthly magazine ‘Sri Datta Vani’ and Pamphlets in both Telugu and English. Several books written by Swami were already published in Telugu and are in good circulation in Andhra Pradesh.


It is also actively involved in the distribution of cassettes containing beautiful bhajans/ devotional songs composed by Swami and sung by Him along with His devotees (in Telugu and Sanskrit).


Efforts are also being made to translate this Divine knowledge of Sri Datta Swami into the regional languages with a view to make it available to the common man.


Sister Concern of this Trust:

Datta Seva Samiti is primarily established to help poor devotees and beggars in all aspects and converting the beggars into devotees.


Swami chooses only four categories of beggars. These are

i) Children

ii) Disabled

iii) Suffering with diseases i.e., those who are unable to earn.

iv) Very old people

Every day the beggars are given special food items by the Trust.


Divine Knowledge of Shri Datta Swami


In spite of the most impressive scientific developments, we find that the world ails with war, hunger, poverty, corruption, injustice and environmental degradation. Today, world peace is a distant dream. This clearly indicates that spirituality is necessary for world peace. If spirituality should bring world peace, then it is most ironic that within spirituality, there is intense hatred, and communal wars between followers of different religions. If we analyze deeply into the cause of these situations, it is the lack of reconciliation between science and spirituality and a similar lack of reconciliation among different religions in the world. This reconciliation must be knowledge-based; not faith or emotion-based. The Divine Knowledge given by Shri Datta Swami most splendidly reconciles and integrates science and spirituality as well as all religions within spirituality into a universal philosophy called Universal Spirituality. Following are some of the unique features of the Divine Knowledge of Swami:


1. To maintain the impartiality of God, one has to accept that the same God appeared in different places and times to reveal this Divine Knowledge and found different world religions (otherwise, if God gave the true knowledge to a specific region only in the past, several generations passed away before the countries got touch with each other. In that case those generations should have gone to the hell for no fault of theirs’, because at least some might have the possibility of liberation through that true knowledge if communicated in time. This is a total partiality of God especially when there is no rebirth for a departed soul. To avoid this partiality you have to accept that God came in all countries simultaneously in different forms and gave the same true knowledge at a time).

2. Thus all the religions have the same Divine Knowledge as their essence. The differences are apparent and extraneous. Swami harmonizes the teachings of all the scriptures including the Vedas, Bible, Koran, etc.

3. Swami explains various concepts of God, Maya, creation, awareness, souls, with unprecedented clarity and systematic scientific analysis. He also correlates them with the goal of spiritual life and the path to achieve it.

4. The path of selfless service revealed by Him is direct, practical and suitable for people from all backgrounds and situations.

5. He has described at length, what constitutes practical service and what does not.

6. He reveals the necessity and the special place of the human incarnation of God in spirituality as the revealer of Divine Knowledge, object of devotion and as the goal of practical selfless service.

7. He explains the correct way to identify the contemporary human incarnation and the possible pitfalls in this identification.

8. He reconciles the three philosophies of monism (Advaita), qualified non-duality (Vishishtha Advaita) and duality (Dvaita) between God and the soul. All these three philosophies are systematically propounded only in Hinduism, but one or more of them are implicitly present in all religions.

9. Even though past incarnations have given Divine Knowledge, Swami’s knowledge is by far the most detailed and complete. It is equipped with analysis based on modern science.

10. He upholds modern science as a necessary tool for the analysis of spiritual knowledge.

11. He exposes several misinterpretations and hypocritical practices in the spiritual field and directs them to the true path based on knowledge.

12. He Himself has performed innumerable miracles for the benefit of sincere devotees. He explains both the benefits and limitations of miracles in the spiritual field.

13. His knowledge is presented in an interactive form such as questions and answers with devotees, debates with critics, and short and long discourses.

14. His devotional songs are embodiments of the highest divine knowledge dripping with the sweetest nectar of devotion.


The books written by Shri Datta Swami are the greatest blessing to mankind and the harbinger of a new age of world peace, knowledge and devotion.
