About the Swami:

One of the most famous scholars and exponents of SriVaishnava philosophy today, Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swamy comes from an exalted lineage of scholars of Sri Ramanuja’s school of Vedanta.   Sri Velukkudi Swamy’s Vedic/Upanishadic insight and knowledge of Divya Prabandham (Tamil Vedas) have become a spring of spirituality utilized to bring the masses closer to the Divine.  He has been giving discourses in English and Tamil, covering Bhagavad-Gita, Divya Prabandham of Alwars, Sri Ramayana, Srimad Bhagavatam, Vishnu Sahasranamam, Vedas and Upanishads. His consummate mastery of Tamil, Sanskrit, and English has made him one of the most sought after speakers in India today, and he has been widely featured on both Radio and Television in India. He has also traveled extensively to other parts of the world, including the US, UK, Singapore, Middle East and Malaysia.

Swamy is also involved in many jeernodharana services to temples through Mangalasasana Divyadesa Samrakshana Trust, Kaarimaran Kalai Kaapagam, & Kinchitkaram Trust. Swamy was instrumental in building a temple for Kulasekar Azhwar at Tiruvanjikalam in Kerala, building a memorial for Sri Pillai Lokacharya at Kodikkulam where Sri Rangantha deity was hidden during invasion. Swami is actively involved in the support of patasalas for Vedas and for 4000 divya prabandham.

Swamy is honored with such titles as “Bala vaag amrutavarshi”, “Upanyasa Kanteerava”, “Pravachana Sangeetha Bhushana”, “Sollin Selvar”, “Sri Ramanuja Seva Shree”, “Rahasyartha Viruti Vichakshana”, to mention a few.

Swamy has the unique accolade of releasing more than 200 MP3 CDs on various subjects containing over 2,000 hours of talk time.

  1. sir,
    i am fascinated by your various discourses on different platforms and also thrugh podhi gai channal
    i want a small clarification whether people who have performed their pthrus ceremonies at gaya and badrinath need to continue performing their pithrus srathams as some say it is not necessary when once pithru karmas have been performed in gaya and badrinath.
    thanking you,

    • Swamin,

      Even after doing tharpanam at Gaya and Badrinath one needs to continue performing their pitru srartham. The same was also stated by Sri Velukkudi Swami in his ‘Yaskha Prasnam’ upanyasam and adiyen vaguely remember he mentioned some holy scriptures as reference for that.


  2. I have started listening to Swamy Velukudi Krishnan’s discourses on website very recently. I can’t express my happiness and divine feelings through them. I spend 4-5 months in Thailand every year. These programs will be my companion. Please inform me of your programs. Regards

  3. Swami,
    Krishna in gita says he is the ultimate Brahman and we shd surrender to him to get moksha. What is the fate of bhaktas worshipping other deities like shri anjaneya. Are they not eligible for moksha if they have true bhakti.
