OUR FOUNDERS

Since April 1947 : One of the longest running spiritual magazines of India.

In the past and present, there is no dearth to the magazines dedicated to serving the material needs of people. But no magazine could be found to cater to the spiritual needs of all categories of people like children, youth, old, women alike. Foreseeing the needs for this, H.H. Sri Sri Sri Tridandi Srimannarayana Ramanuja Jeeyar Swamiji started the magazine in April 1947, with a divine vision to have a magazine that can cater to the spiritual needs of all the people in the society. Since then, this monthly spiritual magazine has been running continuously.

Under the stalwart and most able editorship of Sriman U.Ve. Gopalacharya Swamy varu and the sub-editorship of Sriman Gudimella Ramanujacharya (popularly revered as “kavi” garu) , the magazine quickly became very popular and quenched the spiritual thirst of thousands of devotees in India.

For almost 50 years Sriman U.Ve. Gopalacharya Swamy (until 1996) served as the chief editor and took the magazine to the peaks of popularity with his most authentic and highly respected, vast knowledge in the vedic/vaishnava literature.

H.H. Sri Sri Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji envisioned that this magazine be published in English so that all devotees across the globe can be benefitted as well. Thus born the English and Hindi editions of Bhakthinivedana.
