Mounaswamy (Sanskrit: मौनस्वमी Telugu: మౌనస్వామి) Born in a remote village in Bapatla Taluk, Mouna Swami was adopted early in life by a devout couple Lakshmi Narasayya and Sundaramma. They named the boy Sivayya and under their care he grew up into a well educated well behaved youth. In course of time he got married and with the help of Mr. Uma Maheswara Rao, a close relative, he joined as clerk in the office of a grain merchant. He was blessed with a son and two daughters. He spent whatever leisure he had in chanting bhajans and giving discourses on Ramayana and Mahabharatha. Like a good father he settled his son in a well paying job and found good matches for his daughters and performed their marriages. Mr.Uma Maheswara Rao’s children were also brought up by him as their mother met with an untimely death.
