Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumar Swamy stated, “Swamiji passed away at 11:44 AM today. He will be incinerated tomorrow at 4:30 PM.” The priest has asked for the enthusiasts and devotees to pay their last regard with harmony.
On Monday, following the demise of the 111-year-old Shivakumar Swamiji, Siddalinga Mahaswami will now be officially taking over the reins of the prominent Lingayat Siddaganga mutt in Tumakuru.
Gowrishankar Swamiji in 1988 was thrown out of the Siddaganga mutt on accusations of serious charges, including sodomy of a 12th standard student, which was eventually dismissed by the Supreme Court in 2008.
Generations will vouch such a noble soul walked on earth. Om Shanti.https://t.co/otF4I2Z0eU

Stepping into Gowrishankar’s shoes, Siddalinga Swamiji took over as the junior seer on March 31, 1988.
The seer of Siddaganga Mutt passed away after a prolonged illness on Monday. Born on April 1, 1907, to a simple farmer family in Magadi Taluk, Ramanagara District, he got initiated into the fold in 1930. It was in 1941, that he was appointed the present Head of Siddaganga Mutt, by Shri Uddana Swamiji.

Most Revered Sri Sri Sri Shivakumara Swamiji walked the earth for 111 years. He was an embodiment of Poornatva & one of the greatest Shiva gnanis that India has seen.

Deeply pained to learn about the demise of Nadedaduva Devaru, Sri Sri Sri Shivakumara Swamiji of Siddhaganga Mutt. Swamiji has transformed millions of lives with his immense knowledge and positivity. I was fortunate to have received his blessings. pic.twitter.com/HCu2VKciqn
