He conducts tours of the world to spread spirituality and holds concerts believed to provide healing benefits.[1] He combines his music therapy with ayurveda, psychology, gem therapy and astrology. He has opened an old age home in Hyderabad.The project was titled 'Ammavodi'.[2]

Sri Swamiji has organized and been maintaining Gnana, Naada, Bhakthi, Yoga sabhas, in many places all over the world.

He is unique in his teachings and said to encourage studying and following one’s own religion and discourage shifting or converting to others for in his view God is universal and does not belong to any Swamis or Priests but to everyone, and all religions show the path of love and affection towards all the living beings, as the path to Self Realization and God.
