"Dada J. P. Vaswani is one of India’s greatly beloved and revered spiritual leaders. He is the life-force at the helm of the renowned Sadhu Vaswani Mission, an international, non-profit, social welfare and service organisation with its headquarters in Pune, and active centres all over the world. Born on August 2, 1918, at Hyderabad-Sind, Dada was a brilliant scholar, who turned his back on a promising academic career to devote himself to his uncle and Guru, Sadhu Vaswani, a highly revered modern day saint, acknowledged in his own time as the spiritual leader of the worldwide Sindhi Community. Today, the Master’s mantle has fallen on Dada, whom devotees and admirers look upon as the representative of God on earth, a mentor and guardian of their deepest values and spiritual aspirations. Dada J. P. Vaswani is a firm believer in the universal religion of Love, Unity, Brotherhood and Service to humanity. Deeply imbued with the liberal and tolerant spirit of the Hindu faith that he was born into, Dada firmly believes that there are as many paths to the Divine, as there are human aspirations. Each one of us can take our own untried, untested, unchartered paths to reach God, and God will meet us half way. This allencompassing, humane and broad outlook makes him acceptable to aspirants all over the world, who perceive him as a non-sectarian, non-judgemental teacher and guide in whom they can repose their faith. Not only does Dada express the most profound truths in the simplest terms; but he lives and acts these truths in deeds of everyday life; truly, we may say that his life is his message. He lives his religion and spirituality bearing witness to his ideals in thought, word and deed, thus offering a tremendous source of inspiration to everyone who meets him, even once in a lifetime. A staunch advocate of vegetarianism, Dada has made it his life’s mission to spread the message of Reverence for all Life, as advocated by Gurudev Sadhu Vaswani. Under his inspired leadership, the Sadhu Vaswani Mission has made dedicated and sustained efforts to offer various service programmes encompassing the fields of spiritual progress, education, medical care, women’s empowerment, village upliftment, relief and rehabilitation, animal welfare, rural development and service of the underprivileged and disadvantaged sections of society. Dada firmly believes in the words of his Master: “Service of the poor is worship of God.” A fluent, powerful and witty speaker and an inspired writer who has authored over a hundred books and booklets on topics ranging from the Bhagavad Gita to Y B Anxious. Dada is the youngest 94-year old that you can ever meet. His rapport with the youth is truly amazing. He is at home on the world’s most eminent fora, as well as in gatherings of students and young professionals, who find his personal magnetism, humility and aura irresistible. Spiritual leader, educationist, philosopher and mystic, Dada J. P. Vaswani represents the very quintessence of India’s wisdom and universal spirit."
