Parama Pujya Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji who is considered among His devotees as an incarnation of Lord Dattatreya is a Peetadhipathi with a difference who has been spreading the importance of social service as a means of reaching Divinity. Sri Swamiji's outlook and vision crosses the limits of religion as well as political territories and embraces all facets of social life and divinifies every angle of human service. It is because of this special approach that Sri Swamiji has come out of his regular spiritual limitations and established many rare centers of service. Under Sri Swamiji's guidance, Datta Peetham and its many branches have supported numerous social projects since being founded. These include providing Food, Education, shelter, job training and free medical help to people who are poor or disabled and many other areas.

Datta Yoga Center, USA (DYCUSA) is the American branch of Avadhoota Datta Peetham, Mysore India. DYCUSA was established by His Holiness Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji in 1986 to foster unity, peace, and spiritual/religious fulfillment of humanity through ancient teachings.

In the United States and all over the world, Sri Swamiji has uplifted, enlightened, and blessed thousands of individuals. His Holiness leads devotees to understand the higher meaning of this life. He teaches that this body and soul should be used to grow spiritually through good thoughts, meditation, puja (worship), Nama Sankeertana (singing and repetition of the name of the Lord), and seva (service to the Sadguru or God).

Devotees in the United States are always eager to have Sri Swamiji's darshan here on U.S. soil. However, even when Sri Swamiji is not physically present on this land, He is always with all of us in thought and spirit. We follow His teachings by singing His bhajans, holding satsangs, celebrating important religious festivals and helping those in need.

Sri Swamiji has constructed two temples in the U.S. (Baton Rouge, LA and West Sunbury, PA) that devotees are encouraged to visit on a regular basis. Sri Swamiji is also constructing Karya Siddhi Hanuman temple in Dallas (Frisco, Texas). This will become the only Marakata (Jade) stone idol in North America/Europe. Please visit www.dallashanuman.org for more information. When Sri Swamiji does grace us with his presence in the United States, He performs daily pujas and weekly homas, gives speeches, and sometimes holds concerts for healing and meditation. Sri Swamiji occasionally graces individuals with the opportunity to speak with Him personally.
