Word is truth ... Truth is Guru ... Guru is God ...
From time Immemorial, India has been known as a land blessed with spirituality that transcends religion. Sanathana Dharma holds that spirituality is the essence of man that goes beyond life, death and belief. By the will of the Brahmam, to NAVAJYOTHI SREEKARUNAKARAGURU was revealed the total reality of human existence. Guru was born in modest circumstances at Chandiroor, Cherthala 90 years ago. After relentless spiritual endeavor Guru completed the mission of establishing the Yuga Dharma of our age – to be practiced and fulfilled through the auspices of Santhigiri Ashram. Santhigiri Ashram is situated in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, having branch Ashrams in Cherthala (Janmagriham), Haripad, Kottarakkara, Thrissur, Kozhikode, Kannur, Sultanbathery, Palghat, Kallar, Kumily, Cochin, Kottayam, Madurai, Kanyakumari, Bangalore and in Delhi.Today, lakhs of Guru’s devotees regardless of caste, creed, colour and culture have accepted the Karma and Dharma revealed as appropriate for our Yuga by Guru.
Having established the mission, Guru merged into Primordial Conscientiousness ‘Adisankalpa’ in 1999, leaving disciples to carry on the work of Santhigiri Ashram under the leadership of Guru’s chosen disciple SISHYAPOOJITHA AMRITHA JNANA THAPASWINI.
A very good spiritual cool place to visit with family
Coming to Santhigiri Ashram was one of my life’s good decisions. It changed my thoughts, life and lifestyle completely; showing me a way of life. I am extremely grateful for all, for their kind hospitality and services.
It was a very peaceful, calm environment. The Ashram has such nurturing, wonderful energy. There’s harmony in the air which allows you to relax, to explore in a safe environment. When I left I felt lighter, happier, and more able to be present in the moment. Those feelings continue today. I would strongly recommend attending the Ashram.
Thirty one years ago Guru came to my maternal home and got the noble Gurupooja done with the aid of a disciple (a small girl) having the power of darsan. In the beginning I had no belief in it. Then, I got the Gurupooja conducted as a research work and test case as the idea and method were quite strange to the known spiritual realm. The Gurupooja was performed through meditation and sankalpa (divine mental conceptualisation) by the disciple and the troublesome spiritual powers, deities and serpents we worshipped for generations were removed without any rite or ritual. We tested and were convinced of the effectiveness of this karma by employing the astrologer who had suggested homas, rites and rituals for a solution. Now we realise that Guru was clearing the ground and laying the foundation stone for a pure lineage in our family.
I am from Mexico and was brought up as a Catholic. I wanted to become a priest. Later I turned to books on Hinduism and Buddhism. I practiced Yoga and meditation. I used to have internal visions then. Once I had the vision of a great soul who alone could give me real knowledge. I went in search of him to Japan, China, Nepal, Hong Kong, Philippines, Tibet and Sri Lanka. Finally, I reached India. After roaming about many religious centres, at last I reached Santhigiri. I met Guru. Lo, that was the form I used to see in my visions! "Do you know me?" asked I. "Do you remember me?" I corrected myself quickly. "Yes, we had been together for a thousand births," Guru replied. I realized how closely he is attached to me. Now I am gifted with Darsanam. There is no other Guru compared to our Guru..
I was a Christian from Germany. The Hare Krishna Movement, the Bhagvat Gita and the Autobiography of a Yogi influenced me a lot. But indeed, it was Guru who gave me what I wanted. I did the Gurupooja. It was a revelation. To my brother I told everything. He came he saw and was conquered by the all soothing power and mercy of Guru
