Dr SVR is one of the very handful of people whom I have known to be an expert and an authority in various disciplines like sanskrit, sastram, ayurvedam, Sri Vidya Upasana, Advaitam, Meemamsa, Tarkam and the list goes on. He is a perfect example of having someone lived a perfect, complete and divine life as per sastras. Associated with Mahaswami since his tender age of 10, he has achieved so many prestigious awards and his contribution to educating the astikas via his books are priceless. His bashyam for Lalitha Sahasranamam is one of the bests…Mahaperiyava in Deivathin Kural mentioned about Dr SVR’s “Dharma Sastram” book. Mama’s contribution to Sri Matam has a long history. Mama attained siddhi roughly an year back.
I came to know recently that his son – Sri Jayaraman, Architect & Civil Engineer – has created and dedicated a website that has all the works of his father. Lots of ebooks, audio, articles – completely free for download etc. A site very beautifully done – what a perfect way for a son to dedicate to his father! Please visit http://svradhakrishnasastri.in to read and enjoy. Beautiful photos are out there! I just downloaded “Tripura Rahasyam”!

I had a great opportunity of interviewing mama few years back. Here is his interview:
