Shri Shreedharswami Maharaj whose pre-monastic name was Shreedhar Deglurkar, was one of the foremost spiritual leaders of modern India who dedicated his life for the spiritual upliftment of hundreds of thousands of Indians.

Considered by many to be an incarnation of Dattatreya, Shri Shreedharswami worked tirelessly for the revival of Hinduism which had fallen prey to evils like casteism, sectarianism and orthodox ritualism. In a lifetime spanning over six decades, Shri Shreedharswami toured the entire length and breadth of the country preaching the core principles of Sanatan Vedic Hindu Dharma (core philosophy of Vedanta), before establishing an ashram at Varadpur in Karnataka in 1958. Here he erected the Dharma Dhwaja which serves as a permanent reminder for all Hindus to persist in their endeavors towards revitalizing Sanatan Vedic Hindu Dharma. Every year hundreds of thousands of pilgrims visit his shrine at Varadpur to seek spiritual inspiration.
