Virakta Siddharudha Swami (1837–1929) is an Indian Hindu mystic of the Advaita Vedanta stream widely regarded[who?] as one of the greatest saints of Hinduism who lived a nomadic existence in the South West Indian state of Karnataka.
Sadguru Shri Siddharudha Maharaj lived in the style of an ascetic throughout his life. He never practiced casteism and saw divinity in everything that exists as well as disagreeing with the common notion that Brahmins were the only one's entitled to liberation, firmly believing that everyone was equally entitled for it. Considered to be a reincarnation of Shiva, one of the Trinity deities of Hinduism, Siddharudha renounced his home and all family ties at a very young age (6) and set himself out with a purpose to seek Satguru or spiritual master and later surrendered himself as a student to the then realized soul Shri Gajadandaswami and served at his Ashram.
By the end of this period, he was blessed by his Master and was asked to undertake a pilgrimage with a purpose to help the one's in need, uplift ignorance and reveal the right path to attain spiritual enlightenment to those seeking, He traveled from Kashmir to Kanyakumari delivering the right wisdom for spiritual awakening and methodical liberation to all those who were acknowledged of his exemplary standards of spiritual cognizance before setting down at Hubli. where, he was quickly bought into light for his spiritual knowledge & immaculate sainthood. people sought him over from neighbouring states for solace, satisfying desires and spiritual enlightenment.
