INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY 2017 - Bengaluru Aadheenam


In conjunction with International Yoga Day, His Holiness Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda Swamiji set a unique first ever world record: 108 of his initiated disciples demonstrated the power of Third Eye Awakening. With physical eyes closed and blindfolded, each one passed three strictly monitored tests, reading whatever was written for them and accurately reproducing drawings made for them to trace. 108 dignitaries came from around the world as an ethics committee to ensure the tests were performed in accordance with strict scientific criteria. These guests included doctors, school administrators, artists, publishers, heads of state, leaders of religious organizations and more. Among them, Sri Vedantam ji, founder and chairman of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Mr. Prasad, State President of BJP, Dr. Raju, Research Director of NIMHANS, Mallikarjun, Principal of BMS engineering college and Manjunath, Leader of Bajrang Sene, showed great enthusiasm for the powers displayed.

The celebrations began with an introductory speech given by Ma Nithya Mahayogananda, who is Sri Mahant of the Nithyananda Order and head of Nithyananda Yogic Sciences. She set the context that Yoga is not merely bending the body to become flexible or strong, but that it is a gift from Sadashiva, the Adi Yogi, to align our bodies with the cosmic geometry. Once so aligned, with the initiation of the Avatar, we can all experience and express extraordinary powers. 

Following this was an extraordinary event for all who witnessed: our invited guests were joined by Ms. Komal Singh, an executive from India Book of Records, who had the honour and privilege to adjudicate the authenticity of one of the Powers of Third Eye Awakening which is blindfold reading. Over a hundred initiated balasanths of the Nithyananda Gurukul had demonstrate this power in one sitting with over a hundred esteemed guest evaluating their unprecedented abilities under controlled conditions. Never before on planet earth, in modern history or even in the sacred Puranas, has such a large group of people simultaneously demonstrated these great powers. The excitement in the room was high, as child after child wowed their judges with quick, detailed and completely accurate performance.

H.H. Paramahamsa Nithyananda says, “In Hindu tradition, powers are extraordinary but not unnatural. Extraordinary but not impossible.”  About the Gurukul students who are effortlessly demonstrating these extraordinary powers, He proclaimed, “These kids will bring spiritual legitimacy to Sanatana Hindu Dharma,” to which the hall erupted in applause.

Ms. Kamal Singh was so impressed by the display that she honoured the Balasanths of Nithyananda Gurukul on the spot, with a certificate stating that they undeniably proved the power of the Third Eye in an unprecedented display, and proclaimed that although she attended the event as a representative from India Book of Records, surely this will be featured in Asia Book of Records, as well.

Following the mass demonstration, His Holiness Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda addressed the crowd with a special satsangh discourse in celebration of World Yoga Day. 

One highlight of the evening was the release of the ultimate sourcebook on yoga, “Nithyananda Yoga: Evolution of New Species.” 

For the first time, the ultimate authority on Yoga is being presented with scriptural evidences of Yoga, the Shaastra Pramanas - from the Vedaagamas; with a fourfold level of authentification called Pramanas. These Pramanas include Shastra Pramana, the ancient scriptural references in the Vedas and Agamas; Apta Pramana, the commentary on these verses by Rishis and Munis who experienced; Atma Pramana, the experience of The Avatar Himself, and Sakshi Pramana, the experience given by Nithyananda to all of His initiated disciples. Only when a science is found in the ancient scripture, verified through enlightened commentary, experienced by Nithyananda and demonstrably transferred to his disciples, it is included in Nithyananda Yoga and Nithyananda Mahayoga. The fully illustrated comprehensive book includes sections from Yoga scriptures on over 200 + Asanas, 350+ Pranayama, Kumbhakas, Mudras, Bandhas, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi, Mantras, Yogic physiology and the Yogic Lifestyle, Yogic Diet, Yogic purification techniques, and more. 

“This book makes a strong statement,” says His Holiness, “Yoga has a religion; that religion is Hinduism!”
