CEO & Administrator, Sringeri Mutt

Guruseva Dhurina Padmasree Dr. V. R. Gowrishankar

It’s the untiring, dedicated work of the Administrator that sets the tone of the myriads of institutions
run by the Mutt-in the social, educational, economic, health, spiritual and technical spheres of
society with the avowed aim of improving the status quo. This man, humble, silent but resolute and
highly competent, is the mainstay and no wonder, a lot of accolades and titles have come his way, the
latest being the Padmasree conferred on him in recognition of his sincere hard work and contribution
to society.
All this has made him the humbler for it. ‘Simple living and high thinking’ seems to have been his
motto. His spiritual scholarliness has even taken him to United Nations General Assembly to address
the delegates. He acknowledges all this as God’s blessings and the blessings of H. H. Sri Sri
Bharathitheertha Swamigal, the present pontiff of Sringeri Mutt.
