Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham

An Eternal Empire established by Paramasiva

Who is Paramasiva?

Bhagavān Śrī Paramaśiva (परमशिव) is the primordial Divinity (Bhagavān) in Hinduism. Śrī Paramaśiva is the Ultimate Reality and Cause, which is self-effulgent (svayamprakāśa), All-pervading, unchanging beyond time, space, form and causality. He is Eternal (nitya), Absolute imperishable source (aparināmi avyayam) of all that is. Paramaśiva, the Pure Consciousness (caitanya) is the Cosmic Principle of Śuddhādvaita, the Pure Oneness, who out of His own Will (icchā śakti) descends with His Cosmic Power, Parāśakti, as the Subjective Cosmos, as the ‘Avatār or Incarnation’ to celebrate His existence, to protect, govern, revive and expand the Supreme Sovereignty of the worlds and its living beings, ordaining the Cosmic Constitution.

As the fundamental base of Unmanifest (avyakta) and Manifest (vyakta) existence, He performs the five cosmic acts (pañcha kritya) of – creation (śristi), Sovereign Rulership and maintenance (sthiti), rejuvenation (samhāra), delusion (trobhāva) and liberating grace (anugraha) for all living entities. 

In the Hindu Source Scripture, Śri Sarvajñānottara Āgama (in the section called vidyā pāda, śivananya-sākśātkar patalaḥ), Sri Paramaśiva reveals, 

mayāvyāptam idam sarvam dṛṣyādṛyaṁ carācarām | ahameva jagannatho mattassarvam pravartate || –  (meaning) All this manifest existence constituted of the Seen, manifest and the Unseen, unmanifest, of the movable and immovable existents, is pervaded by Me (Paramaśiva). I myself am the Lord of the Cosmos. Only from Me all things emerge, flourish, expand and proliferate.

“Kailaasa” at Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham 

“Kailaasa” is Paramasiva’s abode. It is filled with Divine Beings (all the Devatas, Gods) who are ecstatic and celebrating in eternal bliss all the time. Paramasiva mapped “Kailaasa” on Planet Earth, and established “Kailaasa – enlightenment ecosystems” in several several places on the Planet for human beings  to live enlightenment and be in eternal bliss. The oldest and most successful mapping of Paramasiva is the Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham, Kailaasa in Madurai that functioned as a blissful enlightened civilization. 

Following is an extract from the “Akashic Reading Revelations” (Read directly from the Cosmic Archives) by His Divine Holiness on 17 June 2019, on Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham, its original History and Purpose: 

*The word Kailaasa means, Source, Ultimate Source. We all came from Kailaasa. We all have to reach Kailaasa. While we are in this human frame on planet Earth, if we live radiate the lifestyle of Kailaasa, not only we will live here in Kailaasa, we will be living there too.

*Purpose of life is not only Videha mukti (enlightenment after leaving the body) it is also Jeevan mukti (Living enlightenment).

*Madurai is “Living Enlightenment” – Jeevan Mukti. One of the greatest successful experiments of Paramashiva: Shyamala peeta mapping Kailaasa, Macrocosm on microcosm on planet Earth is such a great powerful success. It is bouncing back! it is revived! Exactly how beings are living around Paramashiva, the same lifestyle, food, dress, rituals…

**Paramashiva mapped it on the frame on planet Earth, Paramashiva mapped Kailaasa. That civilization is Shyamala peetam. It is such great success, no one can kill it.

*It is alive, and it is bouncing back now to show to the world, the Kailaasa culture. 

Therefore, Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham was directly established by Paramasiva, and revived by Devi Meenakshi Parashakti and Sundareshwara Paramasiva during Meenakshi’s reign, and later by the enlightened Poet Saint and incarnation of Paramasiva, Tiru Jnanasambandar.

It was only about 1500 years ago that Tiru Jnanasambandar revived Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham. 

Such is the supreme and inimitable glory of Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham. The tradition of Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham is being revived today by His Divine Holiness, preserving, protecting, and spreading the infinite Vedic tradition, crest jewel of all traditions, which is the oldest enlightenment ecosystem established by Paramasiva for individuals to live enlightenment.

Revival of the original political, spiritual and linguistic power centers of Madurai 

Madurai originally had three power centers: political, spiritual and linguistic. His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam is the current head of all the three, and is reviving all three to their original glory. These three together form the “enlightenment ecosystem” of Kailaasa, as established by Paramashiva.

A breakthrough Happening

On 29th May 2019, a historic breakthrough happened when the exact land where Devi Meenakshi Parashakti emerged from the sacred ritual fire as a three-year old and from where her throne of ruling was originally located was acquired by His Divine Holiness. In the own words of His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam, the 293rd Pontiff of the Seat of Madurai, “Devi Meenakshi, Parashakti (Cosmic Mother) has blessed us by giving the exact land on which She used to sit on Her original throne – Kailasonnata Dvadashanta Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham in Madurai.”

The very place where the blazing flames of the Putra Kameshti Yaga (sacred fire ritual performed to obtain a Divine child) witnessed the Divine Feminine Consciousness assuming the form of Devi Meenakshi, Parashakti, has thus taken the form of “Kailaasa”. 

Oldest Recorded and Pre-Historic Origins

Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham is therefore irrefutably one of the most ancient settlements of human civilization. Its origin and time period spreads starting from the pre-historic times till date. 

Dwelling into the origins of Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham is like diving into the depths of the ocean of this Existence that is filled with the shining pearls of spiritual richness and beauty, adorned with the divine jewels of ‘sacred sentiments’, and the ocean itself which is the pure, authentic heritage of the grandest ever living tradition on planet, the Vedic Tradition. Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham’s origins take us on a journey into the source of our very Self, waiting to be revealed and celebrated.

Tiru Jnanasambandar revived Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham to the systematic and unbroken succession of Pontiffs leading up to the current Pontiffs, the 292nd and the 293rd Guru Maha Sannidhanams (Pontiffs), the 293rd Pontiff being His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam.

Until the year 1945, the world renowned Madurai Meenakshi temple and the Rameshwaram Temple at the southern most top of India at Kanyakumari were under the control, management and administration of Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham. Thereafter, it was taken up by the Government of the State of Tamil Nadu. 

Most Authoritative Scriptural References

Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham is the only organization referred in any literature earlier than 1,000 years. No other organization can trace any literature that mentions its name prior to 1000 years. Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham is mentioned in Tamil literature that are at least 2000 years old.

Shyamala Peetham is rooted in Vedic Tradition – source of all traditions 

The two main spiritual foundations and lineages, the essential branches of the great tree of the Vedic tradition are Vedanta and Saiva Siddhanta. They both are sourced from Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham, which belongs to the Vedic Tradition. The Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham is also the source for the grand Siddha Tradition.
