Born on 25/8/1929 to a very influential family in Kadi, North Gujajrat, Shiv Guruji’s father was a leading Freedom Fighter. Shiv Guruji was introduced into Shri Vidya by his wife Shri Devi Ba. He received diksha from Shri Devshankar Trivedi Guruji and immersed himself totally into Shri Vidya.
Guruji was an ideal gentleman and had a very warm and fatherly presence. He was always kind, supportive and spent much time in teaching Shri Vidya. Shri Shivguruji would spend 6 months in Kadi and 6 months abroad teaching Shri Vidya to many disciples around the world. He propagated the Shri Vidya Mandal UK which is based in the UK, which carries out Shri Vidya related functions and pujas.
As a combined effort, Ba and Shiv Guruji, established the first Shri Vidya centre called Shri Raj Rajeshwari Peetham in Gujarat in 1983. Their unending contribution and service to humanity has led to the propagation of Shri Vidya not only in India but abroad in countries like Africa, America and Europe as per Guru Parmampara.
Both Ba and Shivguruji initiated many disciples across the globe – in the UK / US. Australia, Africa and India. They both propagated the Divine knowledge of Shri Vidya on a large scale and carried out many divine functions and pujas globally.
Many of these pujans have not been carried out in hundreds of years and each was conducted to the strictest of rules according to Tantra Shastra. Many Gajmakhas have been carried out including conducting the first one outside India ever on 01/01/2000 – coinciding with the Millennium in UK.
