A Mass Chanting for World Peace: Guinness World Records recognizes His Holiness Dr. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji for Creating World History in Frisco, Texas
A marathon chanting session for world peace that took place under the aegis of His Holiness Dr. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, pontiff of the Avadhoota Datta Peetham of Mysore, India, from 31st July 2015 to 1st August 2015 in Frisco, Texas, was recognized by the Guinness World Records.
The Hanuman Chalisa chanting session in Frisco, with 582 participants from various parts of the world, was the longest marathon chanting in recorded world history. Notably, Sri Swamiji led mass chanting sessions earlier this year, in January in Tenali, Andhra Pradesh, and in April at the Sydney Opera House in Australia. Both these mammoth efforts, aimed at benefiting all beings and the atmosphere, were also recognized by the “Guinness World Records.”
In Frisco, Sri Swamiji recently inaugurated the newly constructed Marakata Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple and participated in Guru Purnima celebrations. On 1st August, Sri Swamiji also blessed the audience with a special healing and meditation concert. Before the concert, Mayor of Frisco, Mr. Maso presented Sri Swamiji a proclamation signed by the City Council declaring 1st August as Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji day.
The newly constructed temple which houses the hanuman statue carved from a single stone of Marakata (emerald) is one of its kind outside India. Temples with Marakata statue are renowned to bring protection and spiritual benefits to those who visit. In Trinidad, Sri Swamiji has installed an 85 feet Hanuman statue, the tallest one outside India, in the Datta temple. The temple attracts thousands of people from around the world to the small island nation every year.
The Hanuman Chalisa, authored by Sant Tulasidasji Maharaj, consists of 40 verses and is famous globally, especially since it is believed to fulfill desires of those who recite it. According to Sri Swamiji, “Hanuman Chalisa is a very ancient prayer dating back over 400 years. This particular prayer is especially chosen for chanting since the collective sound vibrations will create positive impact thereby promoting universal brotherhood, and aiding in the well-being of the entire universe.” In recent times, scientific research has also revealed that sound waves formed while chanting are converted into electro-magnetic waves and potentially provide enormous positive impact on beings and atmosphere.
Based in Mysore, Sri Swamiji has established many ashrams and is involved in spreading the message of peace around the world. Swamiji supports several social projects to help the downtrodden and has setup hospitals and schools in India to help the poor and needy. Importantly, his healing music concerts that are specially performed for spiritual energy transmission are always a treat to everyone. People around the world have received immense benefit from physical healing to spiritual guidance.
Sri Swamiji has performed several such Healing and Meditation concerts all over the world for over 30 years now. Notably, world-renowned violinist Dr. L. Subramaniam performed with Sri Swamiji in a packed concert at the famous Lincoln Center in 2008 in New York City. Other prominent venues include the Esplanade Concert Hall in Singapore, and the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Sri Swamiji has received praise and recognition for his work around the world. Recognizing Sri Swamiji’s international stature, the US government has granted special O-visa status to him to travel and perform throughout the USA. Sri Swamiji has meticulously put together all his findings from his continuous research of therapeutic aspects of healing music and has published the treatise named “Raaga Raagini Nada Yogamu.” Sri Swamiji’s work often appears in newspapers and periodicals around the globe.
