Bidadi, Bengaluru. 12/2/2

On the auspicious occasion of Bharani Deepam, in the early morning muhurta, the sacred lamp was lit in the Nithyanandeshwara Hindu Temple and then in all the other parts of the beautiful Nithyananda Peetam, Bengaluru Aadheenam. His Holiness Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda Swami lit the lamps, and festively kicked off yet another reason for celebration.


Karthikai Deepam is celebrated on the full moon day (Pournami) of the month of Karthigai as per South Indian calendar. It is one of the most important festivals of the ancient Tamils. His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda beautifully explained the significance of this story, where Shiva took the form of an endless shaft of brilliant light to enlighten Brahma – the creator and Vishnu – the sustainer. His Holiness said, “Man is the unit of the universe, man is the app of the universe. Human body is the Pindanda (Microcosm), and the universe is the Brahmanda (Macrocosm). How much you understand your body, only that much you can understand the cosmos.”


Every morning, Swamijis groundbreaking satsangs reveal powerful truths from sacred scriptures - the VedaAgamas - and initiate thousands to go beyond Ego (Ahamkara), overcome delusion (Maya) and flower into our ultimate possibility of Sadashivatva.


Then in the evening of Karthikai Deepam, the flame on the summit of the sacred Arunachala Hill in Thiruvannamalai was lit. His Holiness witnessed the lighting of the lamp on Arunachula Hill via live telecast and then proceeded to light the ceremonial lamp in NIthyanandeshwara Sadashiva Temple. As part of Karthigai Deepam, all lamps lit during the day were collected and returned back to the Garbha Mandir where they are merged into one, giant lamp. Today is also the day that Devi became enlightened. She did Pancha Agni tapas to merge with Sadashiva. In the evening, Sadashiva appears as pure consciousness in the form of light. He gives half of himself to her and realizing her masculine energy, she becomes Ardhanandeshwara – the perfect blend of masculine and feminine conscious energies. Karthikai Deepam is the festival of giving enlightenment.


Every Sunday, you have a unique opportunity to directly experience these truths and superpowers through the Kalpataru program and Shiva Deeksha, the first of 9 deekshas which give you a direct experience of the truth of Sadashivattva. You will be personally initiated by His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda to powerfully establish you into the state, space and the superpowers of Mahasadashiva. You will go home expressing the three Shakthis – Hindu powers - of Mind-reading, Consciousness over Matter and Spiritual Healing. These programs can be attended in person in Nithyananda Peetam Bengaluru Aadheenam as well as online through two-way video at various centers around India.
