Shri Ganapatram Dave was a great scholar, actually one of the greatest Vedantists of the time and was bestowed the title Ved Martand Tantra Shiromani by Dwarka Shankaracharya.
Apart for running a Gurukul for Vedas, Guruji was the trusted advisor to the Kings of Gujarat and advised the installation of the Bhuvaneshwari Amba Murthi in Gondal. The purpose of this was to aid the struggle for independence from the British Raj. He was known throughout India as one of the greatest Tantriks of the Century and even today holy places like Kamakhya to Rameshearam still carry his memories.
He had many devoted shisyas such as his son Shri Vasudevbhai, Shri Nandkishore Vyas, Shri Pratap Rai, Harshad Bhai, Shri Girjashankar Rawal and Smt Tarlaben Rawal.
His main shishya to whom Guruju passed the Gurugadi to was Shri Devshankar Trivedi of Sanand and Raja Jayvant Singh, renouned Kali Upasak and King of Sanand.
