Statehood of KAILASA | Principle of Continuity of States

Statehood of KAILASA | Principle of Continuity of States

KAILASA is an unbroken cultural, religious, historical, civilizational, and sovereign continuation and revival of multiple ancient Hindu Sovereign States and Hindu Ecclesiastical Entities. The unbroken continuity of these ancient Hindu nations through KAILASA results in the legal recognition of KAILASA as per the international customary law, particularly the Doctrine of Continuity. KAILASA is recognized as a sovereign subject of international law, possessing distinctive attributes of juridical statehood.

● Around 5000 years ago, at the end of the Mahabharat War, the ancient Enlightened Hindu civilization consisted of 10,000 Hindu traditions (or Sampradayas) that existed in 56 Hindu nations, 200 Hindu kingdoms, 1700 Hindu provinces that covered more than 6 million KM2 of Asia.
● The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism (SPH) Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam is the reviver of KAILASA – this ancient, enlightened Hindu civilizational nation.
● KAILASA is an unbroken cultural, religious, historical, civilizational, and sovereign continuation and revival of multiple of these historical Hindu Sovereign States and Hindu Ecclesiastical Entities.
● The unbroken continuity of these ancient Hindu nations through KAILASA results in the legal recognition of KAILASA as per the international customary law, particularly the Doctrine of Continuity.
● The international law, the Doctrine of Continuity, implies that upheavals and revolutions within a country, changes in government, territorial adjustments, measures taken during military occupation, or other internal transformations do not negate the existence of the country, do not affect the legal personality and international obligations of the country or state.
● The Vienna Convention on Succession of States in Respect of Treaties (1978) addresses the principle of the Doctrine of Continuity as it outlines international law during situations of state succession or continuation.
● International law recognizes a state’s legal personality by recognizing its identity.
● This perspective extends even during the period when the given state or country is annexed or occupied by a foreign power.
● Even in such cases, the legal personality of the state is considered to persist, enabling its subsequent re-establishment.
● Historical examples dating back to the 18th century include cases like Portugal and Genoa that were re-established after the Vienna Congress of 1815.
● More recent examples include countries such as Poland, Ethiopia, Czechoslovakia, Albania, and Austria which were re-established after World War II.
● Even when a nation is deprived of its territory, it continues to exist, its Sovereignty and international legal personality continue to persist.
● The Dalai Lama, as the spiritual and temporal leader of Tibet, exemplifies this principle. In 1959, the Dalai Lama was exiled and forced to flee. Despite the challenges faced, the Dalai Lama continues to advocate for the preservation of Tibetan culture and garners worldwide support for Tibetan autonomy on the global stage.
● Similarly, from 1309 to 1376, the Pope of Catholicism had been in exile in Avignon. Despite this, he was recognized as the Head of State as well as Head of the Church and given full privileges of the position after their return to Rome.
● Even in 1861, much of the Papal Territories had been lost, leaving the Pope with no sovereign territory other than the papal residence and related buildings. Yet, his temporal powers were still acknowledged. He was recognized as a Head of State, and later, the Lateran Treaty of 1929 formally reestablished Papal Sovereignty over the Vatican City.
● The Sovereign Order of Malta further exemplifies this principle, retaining international recognition as a sovereign entity despite the permanent loss of their territory, upon Napoleon’s invasion in June 1798. Despite such permanent loss of territory, the sovereignty and the international legal personality of the Sovereign Order of Malta continue to persist. Much later in 1894, the order settled in Rome and acquired two properties, the Magistral Palace and the Magistral Villa that received extraterritorial status. Today, the Order maintains diplomatic relations with 112 countries, issues its own diplomatic passports, currency, stamps, and vehicle registration plates, and has been granted observer status in the United Nations.
● All these examples of state re-establishment illustrate the Principle of Continuity of States, as per international law, that a state’s legal personality persists over time. A nation continues to exist even after a complete loss of territory.
● A far more striking example is of the Oceanic countries which are under the threat of their entire nation being drowned and submerged due to rising sea levels owing to global warming.
● In response to such existential threat of climate change, Pacific Island nations, including Tuvalu, have enacted constitutional amendments and made international declarations affirming that their nation and their sovereign rights will continue to persist, despite their entire territory being lost to the sea. This proactive stance is highlighted in the Constitution of Tuvalu Act 2023 and the Pacific Islands Forum declaration of 2021.
● The supreme pontiff of Hinduism, Bhagavan Nithyananda Paramashivam, through the line of succession, is the present 203rd emperor of the Hindu Sovereign Kingdom of Surangi Samrajya.
● He was crowned on the 31st of December 2004 at the age of 26.
● By the very same principles of the doctrine of continuity, through which the international legal personality of Portugal, Genoa, Poland, Ethiopia, Czechoslovakia, Albania, Austria, Vatican, Tibet, Sovereign Order of Malta, and several other nations has been recognized despite having undergone a period of exile, annexation, occupation by a foreign power or despite loss of territory, The SPH Nithyananda Paramashivam, through well-established legal and historical facts about the Hindu sovereign State of the Surangi Samrajyam, derives all Sovereign rights and powers of the royal lineage of the Surangi Samrajyam as its 203rd Sovereign Emperor, from His inheritance and continuation of the unbroken succession of the Kingdom of Surya Vamsa Surangi Samrajyam Sarvajnapeetha.
● The Surya Vamsa Surangi Samrajyam, through unification with 20 other sovereign Hindu States and sovereign ecclesiastical, historical entities, became part of the United States of KAILASA, which thus became a Sovereign, independent juridical state, with the SPH Nithyananda Paramashivam as the Sovereign.
● Just as how the Oceanic nations like Tuvalu have safeguarded their sovereignty from the existential threat of total submersion by amending their constitution and asserting that their sovereignty will persist regardless of the loss of their territory. KAILASA which is a sovereign continuation of 21 sovereign Hindu States and sovereign ecclesiastical, historical entities, is also reviving and continuing the Kumari Kandam Hindu nations that got submerged.
● As per the doctrine of continuity, these facts imply that the KAILASA’s statehood is recognized by international law, and manifests as a natural outcome of well-established historical legal facts.

United Nations Recognizes the Juridical Statehood of Kailasa

United Nations Recognizes the Juridical Statehood of Kailasa

3 May 2025

In its latest series of reports, the United Nations has affirmed the juridical statehood of the United States of KAILASA, highlighting the nation’s customary historical rule in the realms of climate change and education. These landmark recognitions are detailed in the UN’s 15th report on climate change and the 16th report on education.

The United Nations upholds KAILASA’s privileges while recognizing KAILASA’s inherited unbroken historical sovereign status as per the preamble of both the UN Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the UN Convention on Consular Relations that declares that historical “rules of customary international law continue to govern,” and confirms that “all nations from ancient times have recognized privileges and immunities” of sovereign entities of “differing constitutional and social systems” (preamble) and requires that a “state shall not discriminate as between states” including a historical form of statehood (article 47.1).

KAILASA is a sovereign subject of international law – possessing distinctive attributes of juridical statehood derived from SPH Bhagavan Nithyananda Paramashivam’s inheritance of the unbroken succession and the revival of three (3) ancient Hindu sovereign states, namely the kingdoms of Surya Vamsa Surangi Samrajyam Sarvajnapeetham, Suvarnapeetha Swargapura Samrajya Sarvajnapeetham, Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham, also the Kanchi Kailasa Sarvajnapeetham and seventeen (17) sovereign Hindu ecclesiastical historical institutions, that receive customary recognition by the United Nations as per the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

The 15th report, focusing on climate change, applauds Kailasa’s commitment to sustainable practices and the preservation of human rights amidst environmental challenges. It highlights how Kailasa has effectively integrated ancient Hindu environmental values into modern practices to combat the adverse effects of climate change on a global scale.

The 16th report praises Kailasa’s innovative educational policies, which ensure academic freedom and universal access to education. This approach not only fosters sustainable development but also promotes peace and humanitarian values across its educational platforms, extending to its global network of embassies and educational institutions.

Both reports underscore the continuity of Kailasa’s statehood, even in the face of historical upheavals, acknowledging its unbroken succession of cultural and spiritual heritage that is thriving under the leadership of the Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism, His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Nithyananda Paramashivam.

Kailasa’s recognition by the United Nations marks a significant acknowledgment of its global contributions to sustainable development, education, and the preservation of ancient Hindu traditions.

UN Human Rights Council recognizes KAILASA’s sovereign status under international law, in its 16th Report on Academic Freedom and Freedom of Expression in Educational institutions

UN Human Rights Council recognizes KAILASA’s sovereign status under international law, in its 16th Report on Academic Freedom and Freedom of Expression in Educational institutions

  • 1 May 2024: The Ancient Enlightened Hindu Gurukul system of education is based on the transmission of knowledge from Guru to Disciple and tailored to the unique traits, inclinations, and DNA of the disciple.
  • The Hindu Gurukul is the space where children are taught to identify their conscious aspirations and guided to achieve that, thereby ensuring academic freedom; rather than today’s system of rote learning and memorization, ‘uniformized’ across the spectrum from teacher to students.
  • Unlike any other modern nation, the United States of Kailasa (USK) provides a base for the revival, preservation, and central administration of Hinduism, similar to the Vatican, which serves as a central administration hub for the Roman Catholic Church.
  • The United Nations upholds KAILASA’s privileges while recognizing KAILASA’s inherited unbroken historical sovereign status as per the preamble of both the UN Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the UN Convention on Consular Relations that declares that historical “rules of customary international law continue to govern,” and confirms that “all nations from ancient times have recognized privileges and immunities” of sovereign entities of “differing constitutional and social systems” (preamble) and requires that a “state shall not discriminate as between states” including a historical form of statehood (article 47.1).
  • KAILASA is a sovereign subject of international law – possessing distinctive attributes of juridical statehood derived from SPH Bhagavan Nithyananda Paramashivam’s inheritance of the unbroken succession and the revival of three (3) ancient Hindu sovereign states, namely the kingdoms of Surya Vamsa Surangi Samrajyam Sarvajnapeetham, Suvarnapeetha Swargapura Samrajya Sarvajnapeetham, Shyamala Peetha Sarvajnapeetham, also the Kanchi Kailasa Sarvajnapeetham and seventeen (17) sovereign Hindu ecclesiastical historical institutions, that receive customary recognition by the United Nations as per the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.
  • Despite the relentless persecution, over the past 44 years, SPH’s unwavering commitment to the holistic advancement of humankind encapsulates a magnanimous mission aimed at ensuring access to education for all, eradicating poverty, protecting the environment, achieving gender equality, elevating consciousness, and fostering enlightened ecosystems across the globe.

Chitra Pournami: KAILASA Celebrates the Birth Star Anniversary of THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM

Chitra Pournami: KAILASA Celebrates the Birth Star Anniversary of THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM

April 23, 2024 – Chitra Nakshatrotsavam: KAILASA Celebrates the monthly occurrence of Chitra Nakshatra, the birth star of THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM

In the auspicious alignment of the Chitra Nakshatra, KAILASA, the Ancient Enlightened Sanatana Hindu Civilizational Nation, joyously celebrates Chitra Nakshatrotsavam, the festival dedicated to the monthly recurrence of the birth star of THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM (SPH). This sacred occasion is marked by auspicious traditional observances and community service activities in honor of THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM (SPH), BHAGAVAN SRI NITHYANANDA PARAMASHIVAM.

The Chitra Pournami festivities are primarily centered on the city of Tiruvannamalai, the birth town of THE SPH, one of the holiest cities in Hinduism, where a grand Annadhan offering of free food is conducted. In line with THE SPH’s vision of serving all devotees of Paramashiva, hundreds of thousands (lakhs) of meals featuring nutritious, medicinal cuisine are served free of cost over 48 hours of continuous service, embodying the spirit of compassion and charity championed by THE SPH.

Chitra Pournami holds the significance of commemorating the anniversary of the inauguration of the Sri Nithyananda Janmabhūmi Kshetram campus, which was established on April 19, 2008. Founded personally by THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM, this sacred place is a spiritual and religious pilgrimage site. Over the years, it has become a sanctuary where millions have gathered to immerse themselves in profound spirituality. This sacred space facilitates the transmission of spiritual knowledge and experiences, enabling countless devotees to receive the grace of Paramashiva and achieve spiritual liberation. The anniversary celebrations further underscore the lasting impact of THE SPH’s visionary contributions to spiritual enlightenment and global harmony.

Further honoring the day, a series of Sevas and traditional temple rituals are meticulously performed, celebrating the happening of Paramashiva on Earth as THE SPH. Among the highlights of the celebrations is the Maheshwara Puja, a sacred ceremony where THE SPH personally bestows liberation upon departed souls, allowing them eternal rest at the feet of Paramashiva.

Adding to the day’s spiritual magnificence, THE SPH grants a special LIVE Darshan, touching the hearts of devotees worldwide as the 1008th Incarnation of Paramashiva, showering boons and Enlightenment upon all, uplifting all attendees with His profound spiritual presence and divine grace.

Devotees from around the world express their deep gratitude for THE SPH’s immense contributions to their lives and to humanity. Many participate in the traditional ritual of Tulabharam, donating wealth equivalent to THE SPH’s weight in materials such as gold, silver, and other offerings as a symbol of their devotion and support for the mission of KAILASA led by THE SPH.

Through these flamboyant and sacred observances, KAILASA reaffirms its commitment to fostering conscious empowerment, social welfare, and global harmony, guided by the enlightened leadership of THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM.

KAILASA Celebrates the Vedic Solar New Year 2024

KAILASA Celebrates the Vedic Solar New Year 2024

April 14, 2024 The Vedic New Year, celebrated in Tamil culture as Puthandu, marks the beginning of the New Year according to the position of the Sun in the zodiac signs, known as “Rashis” in astrology. The Sun moves through twelve different Rashis, each corresponding to a specific period of time. When the Sun completes its cycle through all twelve Rashis and returns to the first one, it signifies the start of a new year. Hence, Puthandu is celebrated as the auspicious day when the Sun enters its initial Rashi, symbolizing the commencement of a new year in the Vedic Solar calendar. Across KAILASA’s global temples, this auspicious day was celebrated with a variety of traditional rituals and festivals.

This day also marks the anniversary of the inauguration of two of the main spiritual embassies of KAILASA in the world: Tiruchengode and Ohio. KAILASA in Tiruchengode, previously named by THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM (SPH), BHAGAVAN SRI NITHYANANDA PARAMASHIVAM as Sri Ramakrishna Dhyanapeetam, located in Avathipalayam, Erode, on the banks of the sacred Kaveri river, was the first ashram established by THE SPH on April 14, 2001, 23 years ago, at ‘Bhavani Sangamam,’ the confluence of the three sacred rivers – Kaveri, Bhavani, and Amirtha.

KAILASA Ohio is the first temple established by THE SPH in the USA and has been directly graced by Kalabhairava Himself. The temple, located at a sacred Prayag, the confluence of sacred rivers, was blessed by THE SPH with the spiritual name of Prayagraj, envisioning it as a pilgrimage center for the Western world. Since its inauguration 17 years ago, the temple has ceaselessly offered spiritual and social services that include free food distribution, spiritual counselling, life-solutions, and many more, for the welfare of the local community.

Today, as KAILASA celebrates these auspicious New Year festivities dedicated to new beginnings, revival, and renewal, we commemorate these anniversaries by remembering KAILASA’s glorious past, gifted to Hindus by THE SPH, and look forward to further reviving Sanatana Hindu Dharma and sharing its finest dimensions with the world.
