Whenever and wherever there is decline in spiritual practice, O Bharat, and a predominant rise of irreligion – at that time I descend Myself. To enrich and deliver the pious beings, to annihilate the miscreants, and to re-establish the sacred principles of cosmic truth, I myself appear, age after age.

– Avatar Sri Krishna in Bhagavad Gita, 4.7-8

Living Avatar Paramahamsa Nithyananda – The Promise to Humanity

The Living Avatar Paramapujya Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda Swamiji was born in 1978 in the holy temple town of Arunachala (Thiruvannamalai) in Tamil Nadu. He expressed extraordinary spiritual inclinations and powers from early childhood, and was trained under multiple gurus in a range of spiritual disciplines, including yoga, meditation, Vedanta, Sri Vidya and the secret mystical sciences, all of which he mastered. For nine arduous years, he undertook wandering around the country as a parivrajaka sanyasi, practicing daunting spiritual disciplines like Pancha Tapas and Aghora Tapas, and also gaining intimate experiential insights into the lives and problems of the common people. This period of tapas culminated in the year 2000, in an explosive spiritual experience that revealed his Avataric mission on the planet.

Today, he is recognized as the architect of a new enlightened civilization, and a clear, legitimate,

apolitical voice of Sanatana Hindu Dharma. He is a Mahamandaleshwar (spiritual head) of Mahanirvani Peetha, the most ancient apex body of Hinduism. He is the most watched spiritual teacher on YouTube with over 21 million views and the author of more than 300 books published in over 20 languages.

Formally recognized for his spiritual wisdom, level of Consciousness, and preservation of the ancient Vedic tradition
He is also unanimously appointed to the high title of Spiritual head of the most ancient apex body of Hinduism Mahamandaleshwar, the Mahanirvani akhada of Mahanirvani Peeth. Keep in mind that in order to be appointed, the decision has to be accepted by majority, and thoroughly scrutinized and investigated by a committee of highly evolved and dedicated monks who need to accept the spiritual, mystical, and conscious abilities of the person they are electing to the post. Swamiji despite being considered by some as controversial due to all the fabricated media slander against him, was nevertheless elected during the peak of the virulent media campaigns against him, due to his greatness as a spiritual leader, and the caretakers of the ancient and sacred Mahanirvani Peeth were not deterred by the lies published about him.
