Millions of followers
Jayapataka Swami has millions of followers around the world, including members of the Royal families of Thailand, Bahrain and Nepal.

In 1978, when floods ravaged West Bengal, Jayapataka Swami risked his life several times, braving flood waters in inadequate boats, to deliver emergency flood relief supplies to villagers stranded on tree-tops and roof-tops. This and countless other selfless services for the masses of India caused tens of thousands of villagers to petition the Central Government to grant Jayapataka Swami Indian citizenship. This was granted by the Indian Government Home Ministry in 1978.

Jayapataka Swami has built a city on the banks of the Ganges with a population of over 10,000 people.

Online yoga and meditation programs
Despite suffering a debilitating stroke in 2009 and a dual liver and kidney transplant in 2018, His Holiness Jayapataka Swami Maharaj is continuing to pioneer online yoga and meditation programs through social media and VR. Despite ongoing health issues, Jayapataka Swami is conducting 6 to 8 online programs a day, reaching audiences all over the world.

A saintly soul, who has fully dedicated himself to the service of humanity.
