Swami Swaroopananda one of the premier poet - saint of India a lumineries of the celebrated Nath Sampradaya

Swami Swaroopananda was born on Dec 15, 1903 in a pious brahmin family of Godbole who were ardent devotees of Lord Vishnu. His parents named him Ramchandra after Lord Rama ,the righteous king of Ayodhya who is worshipped as an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Swamiji was affectionately called 'appa' by his family and friends. From a very young age he displayed sharp intellect, good judgement, quick wit, fairness and immense leadership.
His exemplary behavior soon endeared him to everyone. He was an outstanding student and would have had a great future in any acedemic disipline, but swamiji had his sights set on higher goals. He had incarnated for a purpose. His keen desire and thirst for the supreme knowledge led him to his spiritual master 'Ganeshnath Maharaj' also known as 'Baba Maharaj Vaidya'. Through his grace Swamiji became a luminery of the Nath Sampradaya and took its teachings and practices to greater heights.
Swamiji was a firm believer in action. He cherished justice and freedom.
In his youth Swamiji plunged into the Indian freedom struggle first under the able leadership of Lokmanya Tilak -the fearless leader who took the opressors headlong and then became a satyagrahi as preached by Mahatma Gandhi - the political saint who gave the world the principle of non-voilent struggle.

Swamiji was a modern day saint and a reformist. He upheld the principle of simple living high thinking. He strived for equality of religions and world peace.
