Sri Raghavendra Swami
  Sri Aroor Vishnumoorthy Hebbar (A.V. Hebbar)  
Born in a small village in Udupi to a modest and traditional Brahmin couple, Late Sri Aroor Srinivasa Hebbar, a celebrated teacher of The Sanskrit College, Udupi and Late Smt Padmavati Amma, Sri A.V. Hebbar always cherished a desire to write devotional songs and do his bit in spreading the rich culture of Hindu philosophy.

Challenged with early difficulties in life by way of financial difficulties and being the only son to his parents, he has come up the hard way in life. The opportunities associated with being an official in a leading bank, the Syndicate Bank, didn’t lure him to the easy city life. The home soil always beckoned him and he set up a farm in the village Aroor, where he stays till date along with wife Smt. Kusuma Hebbar.

After stabilising the family’s financial conditions, he took early retirement from the bank to pursue his personal desires full time. Thus started the series of songs he has written on various Gods and Goddesses. The Suprabhatha written by him is played early morning in the local Vishnumoorthy Temple every day.

He is blessed with three sons. The eldest Sri Kiran Hebbar is a Paediatrician and Associate Professor in Kasturba Medical College, Manipal. The second son Sri Shivacharan Hebbar runs Pharmaceutical distributions in Udupi and the third son Sri Manmohan Hebbar runs a Internet Marketing company in Bangalore.

Not for Profit Initiative – Sri A.V. Hebbar was averse to the idea of commercialising the songs produced by him. The lengthy bills of recording studios, production costs and logistics are entirely borne by him. He feels if his modest initiative makes a difference to someone and does good for our rich heritage, he is more than compensated.
