Pandit Ganesan

Pandit Ganesan comes from the city of Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India. Beginning at the tender age of nine, he attended the Veda Padasalai at Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu. He received further training at the Sankaramadam associated with the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam at Kancheepuram, Tamil Nadu. After nearly ten years of formal training at the above institutions, he was a practising priest at Coimbatore for nearly twenty years. He joined the Gurukulam as a priest in 1997. While a student at the Vedic school associated with the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, Pandit Ganesan had innumerable chances to be in the presence of Holiness Jagadguru Chandrasekarendra Saraswati Swamigal of Kanchi. The one moment he cherishes is the honor of receiving a shawl and a prize from the Acharya Swamigal on completion of his course of study at the school. He may be reached at (570) 656 0197 or (570) 992 2339 Ext. 1-361, or by email at ganesanavg@hotmail.com.
