Establishing Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam – the Mission

Wishing to share His spiritual experiences with others, and to dedicate his life to the service of humanity, he decided to end His life as a recluse and enter into the public life.

His Divine Holiness Srila Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda Jnanasambanda Swamigal is the founder of the spiritual organization, Nithyananda peetham established on 1st January 2003, with its headquarters in Bidadi near Bengaluru (earlier Bangalore) in India, and the western headquarters in Los Angeles in California, USA.

These spiritual centers nurture quantum spirituality, where material and spiritual worlds merge and create opportunities for blissful living.

Pioneer of a Global Vedic Renaissance

These temples are visited by over 20,000 people daily on an average. Apart from this, over 400 paduka mandirs (temples where the holy sandals of the Guru are worshiped) and over 1000 Griha Mandirs (home temples) have been set up by devotees in 70 countries.

 Initiation into the lifestyle of Enlightenment

His Divine Holiness has initiated thousands of people in to samaya deeksha (shiva deeksha level – 1) and vishesha deeksha (shiva deeksha level – 2). Shiva Deeksha is the sacred initiation into the state of Shiva – Sadashivoham, which is manifesting and radiating all the powers of Sadashiva. Deeksha is the process of initiation. 

Through this deeksha the bondages that bind the individual self from experiencing its SADASHIVATVA (the space of Sadashiva) is destroyed by the loving grace of Guru, who is Sadashiva; thereby awakening the space of SADASHIVOHAM – Oneness with Sadashiva – in the disciple. Through this Samaya Deeksha one becomes formally eligible to live and practice the Vedic lifestyle as ordained by Sadashiva in the Agamas. Each individual will be given with puja materials, manual and Atmalinga (spatika linga carrying sri chakra on top) for free. 

Manuals for Yoga and Jnana Pada:

The main source books of Hinduism are the Vedas and the Agamas. Smritis and Paddhatis are manuals written based on the Vedas and the Agamas. Agamas has 4 parts called Padas: Charya, Kriya, Yoga, Jnana

• The Charya Pada details daily religious observance, right conduct, the guru-shishya relationship, community life, house design and town planning.

• The Kriya Pada, extols worship and temples in meticulous detail–from site selection, architectural design and iconography, to rules for priests, the intricacies of daily puja and the annual festivals (brahmotsavams).

• The Yoga Pada discloses the way of meditation, of yoga, mantra and tantra leading to the awakening of the kundalini shakti.

• The Jnana Pada narrates the nature of MahaSadaShiva (Ishvara), soul (jiva) and world (jagat), and the means for achieving the state of MahaSadaShiva.
Till date, the paddhatis (manuals) have been written only on the Charya Pada and Kriya Pada.

For the first time, H. H. Paramahamsa Nithyananda is revealing to the world, Paddhatis on Yoga Pada and Jnana Pada of Agamas.

Paddhatis on Yoga Pada revealed in the form of: 

• Nithyananda Yoga Paddhati – Prathama Vinyasa Krama (108 asana sequence) (click this link and Download the book)

• Nithyananda Yoga Paddhati – Thriteeya Vinsaya Krama (600 asana sequence) – yet to be released

• The new Vinyasa Kramas will be having 12 components of Yoga namely Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandha, Dharana (vizualization), Japa (internal chanting), Parayana (external chanting), Karana, Abharana (jewellery), Mandala, Aushadha and Weight lifting.

Awakening Third-eye powers and revealing the science of power manifestation:

Paramahamsa sri Nithyananda has initiated his disciples in 400 spiritual powers in Kumbh Mela Ujjain. These powers originate from the Agamas, one of the oldest spiritual texts, given to the world by the Adi Guru, Sadashiva. The spiritual seeds that have been planted are starting to sprout and express as supernatural powers. People are now reading through the third eye, locating lost objects with the third eye, doing body-scanning to diagnose illnesses, levitating and more. Some even express the amazing power of materialization. Expect many more powers to manifest in the coming years as Paramahamsa Nithyananda is tirelessly working on making this spiritual science available to all of us. For more details:.
