The Temple Of Fine Arts


It was in 1981 that Swamiji lit a lamp to symbolise the beginning of something very beautiful for the arts, especially music and dance. In the preceding years, he had brought together two extraordinary dancing couples - Gopal and Radha Shetty and Sivadas and his spouse Vatsala - who were the main forces in creating awareness and appreciation of Indian classical dance.

Swamiji believed that music and dance were essential to the holistic development of the child. He envisioned that The Temple of Fine Arts would be the place where a
