On the auspicious occasion of the Avatar Day celebrations of living incarnation Paramahamsa Nithyananda, there was a grand celebration at the Bidadi ashram as well as all Nithyananda Vedic Hindu temples worldwide.

Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s message to the world on this day was ‘Be a catalyst, sincere cause for everyone to realize their reality’. When you are a catalyst sincerely to cause others’ reality, all of them will be catalyst to cause your reality to happen. The Whole itself will become cause for you to cause your reality.’ Paramahamsa Nithyananda went on to tell that exploiting people to cause one’s reality is bondage, whereas being the catalyst to make others realize their reality is liberation. He explained that to do this, one needs to listen authentically to oneself and others, and speak into the listening of oneself and others. He reiterated that one should be a cause for others to realize their reality because being a cause for others is one’s own being’s cause.  He went on to dedicate this year to living this great truth.

Thousands of people gathered at the Bidadi ashram to witness the celebrations which included a grand sannyas initiation for 40 people declaring for sannyas after undergoing the sannyas training.

Spiritual heads from across the nation were present to grace the occasion of Avatar day celebrations including Param Poojya Acharya Mahamandaleshwar Sri 1008 Swami Shukdevanandji Maharaj, Sri Ni Pa Shivanubhava Charumurti Dr. Sri Shantiveera Mahaswamiji of Kolada Matha, Kanchipuram Meykandarpeedam 232nd Peethadhipati Srilasri Thiruvambaladesika Gnanaprakashaswamigal of Thondaimandala Adheenam and Srimad Atmanandji Maharaj – President of Sharada Niketan Educational Institutions, and Sri Shivananda Pulipani Swamigal of Palani Adheenam, among many others.

Paramahamsa Nithyananda also released various projects, products and services, including new websites on sannyas, gurukul, spiritual products store, as well as various books and magazine on living spirituality. Nithyananda University which is established in USA and France also conferred honorary doctorates for lifetime contributions in their respective fields – to Atal Acharya Mahamandaleshwar Sri 1008 Swami Shukdevanand Puri Maharaj for his lifetime service to Hinduism, Swami Atmananda ji Maharaj for his contribution in the field of education, and to world-renowned singer ‘Bombay’ Krishnamurthy for excellence in Vedic music.
