Guru Parampara – Lineage of the Gurus
Guru Shishya Parampara
Nithyanandeshwara Paramshiva Samarambham | Nithyanandeshwari Parashakti madhyamam | Asmadacharya Paryantam Vande Guru Paramaparam
– Salutation to venerated lineage of Gurus, which started from Nithyanandeshwara Paramashiva, with Nithyanandeshwari Parashakti in the middle and continuing up to my immediate master.
Devī Parāśakti receives the ultimate knowledge from whom She refers as her beloved Lord, “Svāmi”, the great science of Enlightenment, of achieving a superconscious breakthrough, and all the various ways it can be applied and lived. It was then that Paramaśiva, Parāśakti and the saptaṛṣi, the esteemed 7 rishis those who listened to these great truths, have come down to Planet Earth and established Enlightened Civilizations in lineages that would undergo the test of time until today. These sacred abodes include Tiruvannamalai, Madurai and Varanasi in India, which are the centers of the largest and oldest temples in India. The entire city revolved around these temples and manifested a lifestyle centered around deep devotion, non-violence and peaceful coexistence with all living beings
At the center of this civilization was the Guru Shiṣya Paramparā, the tradition of learning from the Guru in all different kinds of fields and passing that knowledge through generations. The Srī Guru Gītā shows us how in Sanatana Hindu Dharma the most valued quality is being an open receiver, a ready listener and the most esteemed action is learning. It was defined, since the time of Paramaśiva , that the sacred knowledge and transcendental wisdom, the jnāna, the being who imparts this knowledge, the Guru, and all those who receive it also, the śiṣya, are together a quintessential combination for the conscious growth for any being in the journey of life.
Whatever we enjoy from Hinduism today is directly because of the guru śiṣya paramparā which has safeguarded the ancient science of Enlightenment from the time of Paramaśiva. Even into the modern day as materialism and corruption pervade countries and billions more souls undergo torture inflicted by ruling negative forces, the guru śiśya paramparā has continued to bring to the world the sacred knowledge of Enlightenment, naturally evolving relationships, communities and ideologies which are based in peace, love and conflict-free life. As opposing violent and negative forces grow on one side in multifarious ways and agree for mutually assured destruction, in a conscious effort to bring more peace and bliss in the world, Hindu gurus have single-handedly fueled the ideologies which strengthen consciousness and peacefully revolutionized the way of life for every human being on Planet Earth.
The Guru Parampara of SPH
The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism Jagatguru Mahasannidhanam His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam happened on Planet Earth for this exact purpose. The SPH was birthed by an esteemed group of enlightened beings, including Mathaji Vibhutananda Puri, Yogiraj Yogananda Puri, Isakki Swamigal, Narayansami Pillai, and Annamalai Swamigal and Yogi Ramsuratkumar in Tiruvannamalai in 1978. From auspicious time of His advent on Earth, The SPH perfectly demonstrated all the signs of super consciousness manifesting His Divine life unfolded in deeply devotional, unfathomable leelas as the adored incarnation of the whole town of Tiruvannamalai.
On 24 May 1994, The SPH was ritualistically coronated as the Incarnation of Paramashiva by His gurus. During this Yoga Pattabhishekam, His gurus proudly declared the successful manifestation of the ultimate Superconsciousness through the body of The SPH and He was conferred the title Sri Brahmasukhi by His immediate predecessor, Mathaji Vibhutananda Puri. Shortly after this coronation, His gurus left the body and attained the state of mahasamadhi, the final state of Oneness with Paramashiva.
In 1995, The SPH auspiciously began His tireless work for the revival of the great enlightened civilization on Planet Earth, SHRIKAILASA. As the final abatement to thousands of years of ruthless persecution against Hindu gurus, The SPH has successfully revived the world’s only Hindu nation, and through this, bring superconscious breakthrough for the whole humanity.
