Avatar Leela - The Glory of the Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism Jagatguru Mahasannidhanam His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Nithyananda Paramashivam


Let us look at reasons for why Avatars happened…..

First, whenever there is a serious danger for the Shristi (सृष्टि, Sṛṣṭi), whenever there is serious danger for the life itself, whenever life needs to be pushed to the next level; whether DNA need to have a quantum jump in its natural selection process or conscious breakthrough need to happen.

For example, in the natural selection of DNA process – fish evolves as tortoise. Tortoise evolves as pig. Pig evolves as man-animal, Narasimha. Then, you need superconscious intervention to push that natural selection process of DNA to have a quantum jump. See, from man-animal jump to an animal, listen carefully, from man-animal jumping to an animal without Consciousness is easy. It may have a form of a man but it will not be completely carrying the Consciousness of a man. So from man-animal, if the jump has to happen to man, human being – not just DNA need to evolve through its natural selection process, conscious intervention is required.

In His own words, Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam says…

“Listen. Purpose of my incarnation is to get the attention of scientists to study the non-material superconscious happenings which is not perceived usually by the five senses and the small definition of the proof of existence needed to be expanded, understand. What you called as proof of existence is too small!”

“If science puts little time and energy and attention to study the non-material happenings and phenomena, superconscious happenings and phenomena, I tell you, we will have the growth in next one decade, ten years which we have not achieved in last few thousand years of existence.”

Five Pillars of Kailaasa - Nlightenment Ecosystems


In this course, you will be presented with a glimpse of the vision that His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam has for the re-establishment of Nlightenment Ecosystems all over the world.

The right environment is necessary for a seed to germinate and grow. Similarly, a human being is a seed. He/She has the potential to be established in the ultimate divine space of Paramashivatva and go on expanding their consciousness. This is similar to how the physical universe is known to be constantly expanding.

The Five Pillars of Kailaasa, namely, Temple, Gurukul, Library, University and Annalaya (including Goshala) provide the best vatavarana (environment) for the divine to land into human for the ultimate Yoga (union) to happen.

Revival of Ancient Kingdoms (Sampradayas)

Enlightened Ecosystems – Kailaasa
Eons ago, Paramashiva, the supreme consciousness and the ultimate Lord – revealed the cosmic constitution and He Himself established an enlightened civilization and the first Hindu nation – Kailaasa. 

Kailaasa is an enlightenment ecosystem. Thousands and thousands radiating enlightenment. Millions and millions manifesting powers, living together all over the world happily, blissfully, peacefully, powerfully. 

The beings who participated in the learning process through the vedic process of Shravana (listening), Manana (intra-analysing) and Nidhidhyasana (living / manifesting) were capable of knowing anything. They were Sarvajna – capable of downloading what they want when they needed it and had the ability to digest any thought current and give a breakthrough. This was due to their space of Oneness with Paramashiva.

The ecosystems came to be considered as settlements that enabled human beings to achieve the highest purpose of human life – Mosksha (Living Enlightenment).  For this reason, they were called Mokshapuris – settlements that facilitated Moksha.

The Enlightenment Ecosystems, made the revealed scriptures (Vedagamas) come alive through structured education of Gurukuls. The Gurukuls produced ‘Saintists’ who gave extraordinary breakthroughs in all walks of life. 

Ancient Vedic Hindu civilization had the technology for inter-planetary and inter-loka (different planes of existence) travel, surgery, batteries that never required a recharge, alchemy, metallurgy, weapons of mass destruction, architecture on a grand scale, cosmology, mathematics, astrology and so on. The best part is that the education system (modern day equivalent term is University) was capable of delivering all of these sciences and enable the learner to master them in a short period of time. Then they go on parivarajaka (spiritual wandering) and enrich humanity.

23 different prominent Enlightenment Ecosystems happened on the planet. Some of them sustained the tradition for thousands of years such as Takshashila, Nalanda, Ayodhya, Kanchipuram, Varanasi etc.

In the course of time, 56 major nations, 200 states and over 1000 provinces were following Sanatana Hindu Dharma as the state religion. But in the last 1000 years of invasions and persecution, Hinduism lost all territories and after 2007, Nepal – the last remaining Hindu nation was lost. Along with it, the science of enlightenment was almost completely destroyed. There is no place left on planet earth for Hinduism to be practiced in totality and in peace, no place where Hinduism is the state religion. 

In this manner, till date, Hinduism has lost 56 Deshas (countries), 200 states, 1700 provinces, & almost completely lost 10,000 Sampradayas (spiritual and religious traditions). There has never been a more urgent need for a center where these ancient spiritual and religious traditions can be revived. 

Sarvajnapeetha – Vedic Renaissance 

Sarvajnapeetha which is the Peeta to which Adi Shankara ascended in Kashmir is today lost. Not only are the temple and monastery gone the enlightened ecosystem that was producing millions of Sarvajnas (all knowing) every generation is lost. In the course of time due to various attacks from within and without as well as dilution of the core principles on which these eco systems were built, these precious ecosystems were lost. 

Whenever there comes danger to an enlightened ecosystem, its core foundations, the All-knowing Spiritual Seat of Knowledge or Sarvajnapeetha, through its presiding Master, descends as the ‘Jagadguru’ to revive, protect and radiate Sanatana Dharma or Hinduism for the whole of human civilization.

यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत |अभ्युत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम् || 7||

yadā yadā hi dharmasya glānir bhavati bhārataabhyutthānam adharmasya tadātmānaṁ sṛijāmyaham

Whenever and wherever there is a 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.” ~ bhagavad gita, 4.7-8

SPH JGM Nithyananda Paramashivam has once again come down to revive this ancient knowledge, traditions and the Enlightenment sciences.
