“May Maharishi Rudra (Lord Shiva), who is the creator of all the Gods, best over of all prosperity, best among all the whole world and who has witnessed the birth of the entire cosmos, endow us with intelligence and knowledge.”
One can attain peace and comfort only through knowledge, prosperity and all round progress of one’s life and through this peace and can Immerse oneself in divine Samadhi or the eternal trace, thus achieving total freedom from all bondages. And in each age, it becomes essential to authentically present the traditional knowledge before the masses, to link it to the present age and to make amendments, according to the current social requirements. And all this is possible only through the dynamic and energetic voice of a Sadguru.
There is a large chain of Sadgurus in this age and I found some of them really Sadguru. One of them is Poojyapad Paramhans Swami Shri Nikhileshwaranand. He has strived hard to form such a link between our rich ancient heritage & the present age. He has spent the early part of his life, devoting all the years of his youth, delving deep into the Sadhanas and resurrecting the extinct spiritual traditions of India. He, among his ascetic disciples, studied and analysed the various religious cults and himself verified the veracity of the various forms of Sadhanas. He attained proficiency not only in the field of Sadhanas but also in other fields of eminence like Ayurved, Rasayan, Astrology, Paarad Vigyan, Solar Science, Astronomy, Science of conversion of elements, Tantra and Yoga.
Through herculean efforts, he revealed secret Sadhanas like Mahavidya Sadhanas (for achieving totality of life), Kundalini Jagran Sadhana (for awakening of Kundalini Shakti), Mahalakshmi Sadhana (for acquiring wealth & prosperity), Telepathy Sadhana (for reading the mind of others) and Pachanguli Sadhana (for knowing the past & future of any person). During his hermit life he was directed by his own Guru, Poojyapad Paramhans Swami Satchidanandji that the knowledge of Sadhanas becomes meaningful, only when it is propagated in the society and when it is proved that the Sadhanas have not become extinct, rather they only need to be properly and authentically introduced. Reverentially accepting the orders of his Guru, he entered into a family life and as Dr. Narayan Dutt Shrimali, he proved that a person can lead family life and still achieve spirituality and accomplishments in Sadhanas.
As times changed the form of knowledge changed, the thinking processes changed and unfortunately now even the human values have changed, leading to depreciation not only in the religious values but also in the moral, social and human values, it is very difficult to work in such adverse conditions, but he, leading a family life and facing al day to day problems, started the publication of the Hindi magazine ‘Mantra Tantra Yantra Vigyan’, in order to propagate our ancient knowledge.
He not only introduced the common man to Sadhanas & Dikshas, but explained the same in detail to them. He has always believed in creative changes hence he set aside the orthodox method of giving Dikshas and evolved a new & more effective method, in which the powers of Sadhanas in a Guru could be transferred into the disciple, through ‘Shaktipaat’. He has given Dikshas to hundreds of his disciples, the main among them being ‘Guru Diksha’ (for initiation into the field of Sadhanas), ‘Tara Mahavidya Diksha’ (for acquiring immense wealth), ‘Rog Mukti Diksha’ (for riddance from diseases), ‘Baglamukhi Diksha’ (for annihilation of enemies) and ‘Kundalini Diksha’ (for activating the Kundalini Shakti). On receiving such Dikshas the Sadhaks themselves experienced that the day to day problems being faced by them, were solved automatically as a result of which, they were able to concentrate into deep meditation and experience divine bliss.
And such was the impact of these concerted efforts, that even the society had to accept that in order to achieve peace and riddance from tensions, it is essential to revive the ancient Guru-disciple tradition.
