The Most Rare and Extraordinary Phenomenon on the Planet

Enlightened beings (sometimes called Avatars) take a conscious birth and appear again and again on planet earth solely to raise the consciousness of the earth. Examples of other incarnated enlightened masters are Krishna, Buddha, Christ, Bhagavan Ramana Maharishi, and RamaKrishna Paramahamsa to name a few.
Much more rarer are those beings who appear in public life and dedicate not only their life but also inspire thousands of lives to transform the modern man, making the true ancient knowledge so easily available, transmittable and directly experienced.
These rare beings differ from regular human beings. Filled with compassion, they exhibit extraordinary powers and intelligence with different state of highest consciousness, different physiology and different brain functions. By being constantly in the state of Samadhi - the zone of enlightenment, they can heal and transform others simply by their presence and touch.
A true inner scientist, Nithyananda has healed thousands of people from chronic diseases to mental illness and has initiated over 7000 Spiritual Healers into the ancient and most rare science of spiritual healing. Every day over 20,000 people get free spiritual healing service. He is being awarded honorary doctorate by Open International University for Complementary Medicines, Sri Lanka for his tremendous contribution to the field of Spiritual Healing.

Recognised worldwide as the brightest star on the spiritual horizon, his simple yet profound explanations of deep truths are illustrated with the latest in technology and scientific researches, leading edge discoveries into human consciousness, and with original revelations of ancient scriptures.

In his own words, Nithyananda says, "The Greatest Service you can do in your life, the best use you can make of your life is to keep the Science of Enlightenment alive on the planet.

Establishing Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam Mission - The Enlightened Community

Nithyananda remains always grateful to the spiritual masters and the rich spiritual heritage of India which made it possible for him to learn and practice these timeless spiritual truths. Wishing to share his spiritual understanding with others, and dedicate his life to the service of humanity, he decided to end his life as a recluse and enter into the public life. To this end, he set up his spiritual organization Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam on 1st January 2003, with its headquarters in Bidadi near Bengaluru (earlier Bangalore) in India.

The organization was set up with the vision of:  
  • Preserving, reviving and spreading the authentic Vedic culture of India
  • Introducing to the common man the many benefits of yoga and meditation, and offering practical solutions for better living
  • Reaching out to the needy and underprivileged through medical care, nutrition, education, youth and women’s empowerment and other social initiatives.
  • Helping to create a conflict-free, productive and harmonious global community that transcends the barriers of language, culture and class.
In the short span of 8 years since its inception, Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam has seen phenomenal growth and received tremendous popular support. The organization has ashrams, Vedic temples and thousands of meditation centers in 150 countries worldwide. These spiritual centers nurture quantum spirituality, where material and spiritual worlds merge and create opportunities for blissful living. 
Today, Nithyananda is an inspiring personality for millions of people worldwide. His authenticity, depth of experience and his rare gift for making spirituality both practical and enjoyable have allowed Nithyananda’s teachings to reach far and wide. A powerful spiritual healer, Nithyananda has healed thousands of people of diseases ranging from depression to cancer, often with a single touch. Working and sharing with over 10 million people worldwide every year, Nithyananda is committed to help humanity make the next big breakthrough: into Superconsciousness.
