His Holiness SRI SRI SHIVAPURI MAHASWAMJI founded Omkara ashrama Mahasamsthana in 1992 on Omkar Hills.

Born on 30th Jan 1948, Swamiji had spiritual learnings from the childhood itself. After finishing his schooling, Swamiji joined Kailas Ashrama Mahasamsthana founded by Jagadguru Shivaratna Puri Mahaswamiji known popularly as Jagadguru Thiruchi Maha Swamiji in 1963. Swamiji was the most beloved disciple of the great Thiruchi Maha Swamiji, who arranged for imparting to him knowledge of various Shastras and Agamas from renowned Scholars and Pundits. 

Swamiji organized regular poojas, special poojas, homas and festivities in a very systematic manner as per the Agama Shastras. Swamiji was very much instrumental in spreading the fame of Kailas Ashrama Mahasamsthana and the Temple far and wide, drawing innumerable devotees from India and Abroad.
Another very significant achievement is the creation of six Jagadguru Peethas for some of the major sects and installation of a Jagadguru for each Matha, after due coronation. These Jagadgurus are working as a unifying force in their own way – and thus the backward communities have found their own Spiritual Masters to guide them in Secular and Spiritual matters.

Swamiji is an embodiment of pure love which flows continuously without any barrier of caste, creed or religion. His care concern and hospitality leave an indelible on everyone who comes in contact with him great are his ideals, great is his mission in life and great is his attraction.

Sri Sri Swamiji left his body and attain mukthi on 25-07-2007.
