Datta Yoga Center, USA (DYCUSA) is the American branch of Avadhoota Datta Peetham, Mysore India. DYCUSA was established by His Holiness Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji in 1986 to foster unity, peace, and spiritual/religious fulfillment of humanity through ancient teachings.
Sri Swamiji visited the United States for the first time in 1976. He returned to U.S. very often after that initial trip in order to establish centers in the U.S. and bring people together in the path of spirituality. Click here for highlights of his previous visits.
In order to help U.S. devotees to remain focused around spiritual values and human service activities, Sri Swamiji, under the auspices of Datta Yoga Center, USA, has founded two major institutional complexes namely, Datta Retreat Center, West Sunbury, PA and Datta Temple and Hall of Trinity in Baton Rouge, LA. Congregational prayers and services are regularly held throughout the year at these places emphasizing the universal message of love, peace, freedom and service to fellow beings.
Inspired by Pujya Sri Swamiji, Satsangh groups have been formed in various cities where hundreds of devotees gather on a regular basis to participate in Socio-Spiritual activities. Click Here for the groups across the United States
