Swami Tattvavidananda's Vedic studies began in childhood, first under his father and later in a traditional school. He earned a Ph.D. in chemistry and enjoyed a successful scientific career. He continued to retain his connection to his Vedic roots, and at the instigation of colleagues, presented some of his thoughts on the Veda as a formal Ph.D. dissertation. This won him a gold medal and a second doctorate in Sanskrit. He considers his search for understanding Vedanta ended only when he finally heard Swami Dayananda Saraswati, about twenty-five years ago.
Swami Tattvavidananda studied in depth Swami Dayananda Saraswati's Bhagavad Gita home study program and translated it into Telugu for the benefit of Telugu knowing spiritual seekers. He is the vice president of Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, Saylorsburg and has written more than 70 books on Vedanta in English, Sanskrit and Telugu. (full bio)
