Patriji's Parents

Patriji was born in Shakkarnagar, Bodhan, Nizamabad district of current Telangana state.. on 11th November 1947 to P.V. Ramana Rao and Savitri Devi.

Patriji’s father P.V. Ramana Rao was born in ‘Gudivada’, in 1911, did B.Sc degree in Nizam’s College, Hyderabad and further went to do postgraduate studies in “ Sugar Technology ” in North India, Kanpur. P.V. Ramana Rao started his career in “ Vuyyuru  (1936) ” at K.C.P Sugar Factory.. and worked there for two years. Then he went on to work in “ Nizam Sugar Factory Ltd.” , at “ Shakkarnagar ”, in the year 1938. Year 1965, he got his early retirement. That is when Patriji’s family left Bodhan and shifted to Warangal as Patriji’s elder brother Dr. P.K. Venu Vinod, at that time, was working as a Lecturer in Regional Engineering College, Warangal.

P. V. Ramana Rao left his physical mortal body in the year 1993.. literally in Patriji’s own hands.

Patriji’s mother Savitri Devi was born in Guntur, in the year 1920 and was a very compassionate individual, a great lover of music, a great cook, a fluent speaker in Hindi, and a great meditator. Savitri Devi, as a baby of two, was sent to her elder brother’s place in Allahabad. She grew up there, so knew Hindi very well. She was married at the age of sixteen. After a few years of happy married life, she had lot of suffering also, because of her husband’s schizophrenia, who had to be put up in mental hospitals every now and then. Although she suffered a lot, she did carry the whole family beautifully, in spite of all the trials and tribulations.She was a great support in Patriji’s both material and spiritual efforts until she left her physical body in the year 2006.

Patriji’s father was excellent in academic studies. So, all the children became hard working at academic studies. However, the best of them has been Patriji’s elder brother, Dr. P.K. Venu Vinod, who did his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Manchester during the years 1970-74. Patriji’s sister, Dr. Sudha, did M.Sc. in Organic Chemistry and almost completed her Ph.D and, then, as a mother of two children, she completed M.B.B.S, from Bengaluru. Patriji’s brother younger by two years. “ Aravind ” left his physical body in 1964, in Mumbai, due to Leukaemia.

Patriji’s parents built a house named “Aravind” in Amberpet, Hyderabad., year 1969. The home where Patriji and his sister Dr. Sudha were born, in Shakkarnagar, was owned up by Dr. Sudha Koduri some years earlier and that house is now “ Savitri Devi Pyramid Meditation Centre ”.

Childhood / Adult Education

Patriji’s childhood was spent at “ Shakkarnagar ”.. growing up with all the whole neighbor-hoodfamilies as one common family. On one side of his house is a Masjid.. even today it exists exactly as it was.  A few furlongs away is the serene, sprawling, peaceful Rama Temple. “ The Nizam Sugar Factory ” is now dilapidated.. but, in those days, it was the biggest in Asia and very, very active.

Patriji’s primary schooling was done in Shakkarnagar where he studied up to 5th standard and then “ Middle School ” up to 9th standard in “ Bodhan Govt. High School. ” Later, Patriji got shifted to Secunderabad, where he attended his High School – at Mahbub College High School (1960-1963). He passed out of his 12th class with a first class in 1963. Year 1966, he finished his B.Sc. from Secunderabad Arts and Science College. Later, in 1966, Patriji joined “ Arts College, O.U. Main Campus ” where for six months, he studied M.A. English literature and then joined Agriculture College “ Andhra Pradesh – Agr. University ” – at Rajendranagar, Hyderabad and completed B.Sc.(Ag) degree in the year 1969.

During the years 1970 to 1974, Patriji completed M.Sc.(Ag.) with specialization in “ Soil Science ”.

During the years 1969 to 1973, Patriji appeared for All India Level Competitive examinations. During all these years, he would partly do Income Tax Job, study M.Sc.(Ag) in bits and spurts.. but would concentrate mostly on competitive exams and used to visit all the Libraries in Hyderabad.. and “ read and read and read ”.

In his childhood, Patriji’s household had a harmonium and a tabla and everyone in the family used to practice harmonium. “ Shiv Ram Guruji ”, from Bodhan, used to come in to the house in and would teach basic Hindustani Music and simple Bhajans. Patriji also learnt a little Tabla. Year 1960, all the children moved to Secunderabad for higher studies. And, in 1963, after Patriji’s high school 12th examinations, Patriji’s brother decided that Patriji should go to “ Shri T.S. Chandrasekharan ” and should learn CLASSICAL CARNATIC FLUTE.

Patriji’s Flute GURUJI, Master Chandrasekharan Garu has been a disciple of the legendary T. R. Mahalingam. April 1963, Patriji’s Guruji gave him a Flute to handle. Patriji’s brother Venu Vinod was six years senior to Patriji in Flute. Patriji and his brother used to play Flute together.

Sripada Pinakapani Garu immediately took Patriji under his wings and taught him many intricate technicalities in music.. for full three years from 1975 to 1978.

Patriji learnt many Keertans, and could apply Pinakapani style in his Flute. Patriji also cultivated his “ vocal music ” because of the two masters Chandrasekharan and Sripada.


Since childhood, Patriji was quite fond of the game of cricket. He would collect a few people of his age and form a team and play matches every now and then. It all got started in Shakkarnagar. Patriji considers himself a good batsman, a bowler and a wicket keeper.

Guru - Sadananda Yogi

Sadananda Yogi ” was born in Arabia, stayed in Himalayas and toured all of India, finally came to Kurnool in the Year 1975.. the same year when Patriji also went to Kurnool as he was posted there when he joined Coromandel Fertilizers Ltd.

Sadananda Yogi ”, a tall man, not very old looking was living in a small lodge, “ Raghavendra Lodge ”, in a very small room 6’ X 12’  in Kurnool Town, when Patriji along with other two masters Ramachenna Reddy and Venkataratnam, visited him for the first time on January 1st, year 1981. Swamiji looked at them, and after a while, spoke : “ You will obtain nothing but BrahmaJnana here. ” The students told him : “Swamiji ! We want only that.” Sadananda Yogi was satisfied with the answer and went on reciting many wonderful spiritual things in Arabic and Telugu. The ardent students were mesmerized. After about 15 to 20 minutes, Sadananda Yogi told, “ Come tomorrow morning. I will initiate you into meditation ”. That’s how Patriji met “ Sadananda Yogi ”, he also called him “ Kurnool Swamiji ”.

Patriji would be in Kurnool every month for about 7 to 8 days only. And in those few days, he would spend much time every day with “ Swamiji ”. Patriji would bring cigarettes / snacks / tea / lunch to him. Sometimes, when Patriji was in Camp, and Swarnamala Patri would arrange to send lunch.

From the time of January 1st year 1981 to year 1983 May 22nd, this was Patriji’s routine in Kurnool. Patriji used to keep listening to him, to his experiences from his long life. “ Swamiji ” never moved out of his old Lodge. “ Kurnool Swamiji ” voluntarily left his body on 22nd May 1983 in the presence of Patriji and Dr. Sripada Pinakapani.
