Swami Tattvarupananada Saraswati was born & raised in Kerala’s culture capital, Trichur, India. As a spiritual seeker from a young age, he was fortunate to have met many different masters of repute. At the age of 18 he studied Sanskrit at the Narayana ashrama, Tapaovanam, in Trichur, which later facilitated his Vedantic studies. Keen to live his life as a Yogi, Swamiji set off for the Himalayas in search of a master & underwent rigorous spiritual practices in the company of many Himalayan spiritual masters.
Meeting with Sri Swami Dayananda Saraswati, the well known traditional teacher of Vedanta, was the most important event in swamiji’s life, After studying the Prasthanatraya viz. Upanishads, Bhagavat gita and Brahmasutras with Adi Sankaracharya’s Commentary, Swamiji mastered the scriptures & the traditional methodology of teaching from Swami Dayananda Saraswati. Swami Dayananda Saraswati initiated Swami Tattvarupananda Saraswati into the traditional order of the Sanyasa in 2003.
In 2004 Swamiji took the Yoga teacher training course at Sivananda Ashram, Neyyar Dam & the Sadhana Intensive course in Uttar Kashi. Since then Swamiji has taught Bhagavad Gita classes during teacher training courses and Raja Yoga Sutras & Sanskrit during advanced teacher training courses to students in Sivananda ashrams in India.
Swamiji has devoted himself to the cause of under privileged children, founding the JJK Gurukulam orphanage in Trivandrum, Kerala, India. Here children of dysfunctional or under privileged families are provided with shelter, food & clothing and are given traditional & academic education, giving them the opportunity to grow into responsible human beings.
Swamiji is a master storyteller. He has a simple, humorous and direct way of teaching, which is much acclaimed all over the world. Nobody can miss the truth when it is unfolded traditionally and teachers from traditional lineages are rare.
Swamiji is currently engaged in teaching scriptures at different locations for Sivananda Yoga Vidya Peetham in India, centres of Haus Yoga Vidya in Germany and for different spiritual groups in France, Denmark, the Czech Republic and in Japa
