Krishna Janmashtami celebrates the birth of Sri Krishna, one of the greatest incarnations of Paramashiva, the embodiment of Divine Love. Bhagavan Krishna’s entire life and His message can be epitomized in one word: “celebration.” Come, celebrate the auspicious day of His happening.
Beautifully Bhagavan Krishna says in Bhagavad-gita 15.15:
सर्वस्य चाहं हृदि सन्निविष्टो
मत्त: स्मृतिर्ज्ञानमपोहनं च |
वेदैश्च सर्वैरहमेव वेद्यो
वेदान्तकृद्वेदविदेव चाहम् || 15||
I am seated in everyone’s heart, and from Me come remembrance, knowledge and forgetfulness. By all the Vedas, I am to be known. Indeed, I am the compiler of Vedanta, and I am the knower of the Vedas.
Bhagavan Krishna manifested as intense life. Life expressed in body as ever youthful, expressed in intellect as amazing strategist, expressed in emotion as a most beautiful pure romance, amazing artistic expression. Even when Bhagavan was teaching the greatest truths, it was done in a very poetic form. His book is called Song – Gita, because it is more poetic than anything else. Singer, dancer, musician, strategist. A beloved for everyone.
This Krishna Janmashtami let us all come together and manifest Paramashiva through love.
Pratyaksha Pada Puja is a mark of gratitude for the health, wealth, energy and transformation experienced in one’s life through His blessings and His presence. It is a once-in-many-lifetimes opportunity to be able to offer Pratyaksha Pada Puja to a living incarnation.
Guru Gita Verse 86:
पूजामूलं गुरुर्पदम् ।
मोक्षमूलं गुरूर्कृपा ॥ 86 ॥
Translation: The original root and essence of Dhyana (meditation) is Gurumurti, the Guru’s embodied form; the original root of worship is Gurupadam, the Guru’s Feet; the original root of mantra is Guruvakyam, the Guru’s Word. The original cause of liberation is Gurukripa, the Guru’s grace and compassion.
Pratyaksha Pada Puja to the Avatar is an opportunity to be in His presence (energy field) to soak in the bliss, peace and joy that is Him.
The Avatar is a storehouse of Cosmic energy who is constantly radiating it to the world. Soaking in his energy field during the Puja leads one to the ultimate experience of body, mind and spirit to the Divine.
“The highest wealth you can acquire, while you are in the human body is Embodied States of Consciousness, Bhava Samadhi. Embodying Consciousness means your length, breadth, depth, is filled by that one Bhava. Your length, breadth, depth radiates, vibrates with that one Consciousness – sometimes bhakti (devotion), love, sometimes Paramashivoham (I am Paramashiva); sometimes the Shuddhadvaita Anubhuti (cognitive experience of Pure Oneness with everything). When you embody Consciousness, that becomes reality. Puja is embodying bhakti consciousness, chit gana anubhava samadhi of bhakti, surrender, devotion, dropping all the incompletions from the head. The embodying different states of consciousness is the purpose of all the spiritual practices.”

Quantum physics describes a phenomenon called ‘entanglement’ whereby two particles can interact instantaneously beyond space and time, even though they may be billions of light years away. Entanglement is a fact – observable, repeatable and scientifically demonstrable.
In the ancient Veda-Agamic tradition of Sanatana Hindu Dharma, this science of entanglement has been known for millennia by incarnations and Avatars and used as a technique to transmit the ultimate truths from the Guru to the disciple.
When one sits in Pratyaksha Pada Puja at the feet of an Avatar whose frequency matches that of the Cosmos, their frequency will also rise in the process of Entanglement.
Mirroring neurons of Bhagavan Sri Krishna, manifesting the state, space, and feeling connection with Sri Krishna by offering Pratyaksha Pada puja to the incarnation of Paramashiva, Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism, Jagatguru Mahasannidhanam His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Nithyananda Paramashivam.
Pratyaksha Pada Puja and other Sevas will be offered on this auspicious occasion. Literally experience the divine space of The Avatar as you entangle and your neurons mirror the state that He is in.

Pei Ling Xao from Norway shares her experience of offering Pratyaksha Pada Puja and the surprise healing miracle she and her family experienced.
The sacred ancient ritual of the Tulabharam has its roots in the life of Sri Krishna and His wives. His wife Satyabama always wanted Krishna all for herself, whereas Rukmini always needed Krishna for her rituals or philanthrophy.
Satyabhama desired that Krishna should always be with her and requested Narada Muni for a solution. Narada suggested a Vrata to be performed by Satyabhama in which Krishna would given as a Daana to a Maharishi. Not agreeing to give away Krishna as Daana, Narada suggests to Satyabhama to give Daana of gold equal to that of Krishna’s weight. Satyabhama delightfully agrees and boasts that she could offer gold Daana of a 1000 Krishna’s with the amount of gold that she possesses.
When the ritual commences, Satyabhama is unable to equate Krishna’s weight on the Tulabharam (weighing scale). As a result of this, Satyabhama has to give up Krishna, and Narada takes Him away, singing and celebrating about Krishna being his.
Satyabhama goes to Narada crestfallen, and asks where she went wrong – why the Tulabharam didn’t move no matter how much gold she kept.
Narada then says that Krishna is not just a mere body which can be keep with oneself all your life, Krishna is Parandhama, the Cosmos itself – the Supreme Being! No phsycial object can outweigh such a mass. Parandhama comes down and manifests in the world only when moved by the devotion of the devotee.
He the reveals that only Rukmini sees Krishna for who He really is, and that only her devotion can move Him. Satyabhama realizes her mistake and understands who Krishna really is and apologizes to Rukmini for desiring to keep Him for herself. She requests Rukmini to do something so they can both have Krishna back from Narada.
Krishna again sits on the Tulabharam scale, with Rukmini on the other side knowing the omniscience of Krishna, knowing that a prayerful offering of a single Tulasi leaf can bring all of Krishna to oneself.
She places a single Tulasi leaf on the empty side of the Tulabharam and Krishna’s side of the scale lifts!
The offering of butter in Tulabharam is a unique offering. Why is butter offered to Bhagavan Sri Krishna on this auspicious occasion of Krishna Janmashtami?
Bhagavan Krishna when a toddler would play a divine Leela for the devotion of the Gopikas. He used to go house to house and steal butter. Why does Krishna need to steal butter from others’ homes? Yashoda, Krishna’s mother would make butter for him, and He would love to eat it. He would eat so much butter that Yashodha had to keep the butter out of reach. She would keep the butter in a clay pot and keep the butter hanging from the ceiling high above out of reach of Krishna.
The Gopikas of Krishna used to love Krishna a lot and would love to witness the divine toddler’s small plays. Krishna would call all His friends and make them stand on top of each other and then He would would happily climb this tower of friends and get the butter pot at the top. The Gopikas’ hearts melted, as before their eyes Bhagavan Himself was eating, laughing and feeding butter to his friends. They wanted to drink this experience again and again. Hence they would make butter in their homes and keep the butter in the corner for Krishna to come and eat.
The sacred sentiment they carried was that “Bhagavan will come to my house and eat the butter that I made”. This beautiful sentiment was understood by many and hence on Krishna’s birthday his favourite Navaneeta would be made.
Making fine butter takes hours of labor, using 100s of liters of milk to make even a single big pot of butter. In the olden days boiled milked is made into curd, which is then churned into fine butter. It is a tedious task, where the curd is physcially churned by hand into butter. Butter isn’t a common comodity that people used to make everyday for their regular meals. But still, the Gopikas wanted to take that time out of their day, where hours of labor and hardwork were sent.
Spending hours of physical labor and in their mind only remembering Krishna alone, Krishna didn’t just earn the name Navaeeta Chora – the one who steals butter, but also the name Chitta Chora – the one who possesses and takes away your consciousness itself replacing it only with Him.
The Gopikas did all of this for one single truth and they wanted to experience again and again Krishna coming into their home and eating the butter they made, for Bhagavan to come as a child and have their food. That devotion, that simple love, that reverence for one’s Guru to manifest again and again in one’s life is the sacred sentiment we celebrate on Krishna Janmashtami. As the Gopikas did for Krishna, a few devotees are offering the Navaneeta Butter Tulabharam at the Divine lotus feet of our Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam.
Unique celebration of expressing overflowing deep gratitude to The Avatar and our beloved Guru, HDH Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam. Join the nectarine space to connect and experience Paramashivatva, Oneness with the Guru, the embodiment of Paramashiva, the Cosmic Consciousness.
