Shri Chitrapur Math is the beacon of spirituality to the Chitrapur Saraswat Samaj which has spread all over the globe today. Lord Bhavanishankar is the Aradhya Daivat (presiding Deity) of the Math.
The Advait philosophy enunciated by Shri Shankara Bhagavatpada (Adi Shankaracharya) is the foundation of Sanatana Dharma for us.
The resplendent Guru Parampara of the Math traces its origin from Lord Dakshinamoorti Himself. Shankara Bhagavatpada who came in the 8th century and the eleven Yateeshwars, who have graced the Peetha of our Math over the last 300 years, have devoted their life time to rejuvenate the community spiritually and guide people in their Sadhana, which has the attainment of Moksha as its ultimate goal.
A Vaidik Pathshala and a Goshala, are just two of the many activities initiated by the Math to propagate Sanatana Dharma and all-round welfare of the Samaj. The Math also reaches out to help through charitable and developmental activities such as Annadan, promoting education, health care, offering vocational guidance, opportunities and assistance to become self-reliant and so on.
