The world is awakening to a new consciousness, where distinctions like material life and spiritual life, inner growth and outer growth, are rapidly breaking down. The new age individual is striving to build a harmonious world where material success complements spiritual growth, where ancient wisdom and modern scientific insights blend seamlessly to create a richer, more fulfilling life for all. The need of the hour is the presence of enlightened leaders, who can draw from their deep understanding of human nature and aspirations to establish and guide global communities towards this goal. Nithyananda is today recognized as one of the emerging voices on the Indian spiritual scene who can offer pragmatic guidance across all strata of society.
A spiritual mall
Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam offers a host of programs that span life solutions, yoga, meditation, scripture study, worship and service-oriented activities. With an ideal combination of solutions that touches every kind of individual, every requirement and every mindset, the organization has achieved a high level of penetration among all sections of society. In the eight years since he started traveling and teaching abroad, Nithyananda has made an indelible mark on the international spiritual scene, attracting educated and committed followers with his engaging way of demystifying the Vedic truths and reinterpreting them in the light of modern living.
For an audience that might be familiar with the teachings of Eastern spirituality, but lacks clarity on how to employ it in their lives, Nithyananda’s commentaries effectively bridge the gap between understanding and experience. Being a fluent speaker in English, he has the added advantage of being able to personally communicate with and guide seekers. His refreshing take on topics like intuitive management, leadership and branding has won him appreciative corporate audiences. He has been invited to speak on topics like Vedic Management by corporate giants such as Microsoft, Qualcomm, Pepsi, Oracle, AT&T and Petrobras.
In 2006, Nithyananda launched the first Confluence for World Peace, an annual socio-spiritual event attended by over 5000 people, in which over 20 globally renowned spiritual and social organizations participated, including the Vedanta Society, BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha, ISKCON, Mata Amritanandamayi Math, Chinmaya Mission and others. Nithyananda’s novel spiritual venture, the annual Kumbha Mela, finds appreciation and support among both spiritual organizations as well as the Indian community abroad.
Revolutionizing spirituality online
Unlike many traditional gurus, Nithyananda combines classic methods of teaching with modern ways of spreading the message, including the internet. He is currently one of most watched gurus on the internet (YouTube), with over 8000 hours of free talks on subjects ranging from the Upanishads to wealth consciousness to levitation. Nithyananda launched the tremendously effective eN-satsang, reaching out to viewers around the world through the internet. Since then, a whole range of online programs are being offered by Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam. Each morning, people from 35 countries or more participate in the pooja (Vedic worship), meditation and view Nithyananda’s morning message via live web stream. More than 100 of the organization’s certified teachers also conduct daily webinars, and teach yoga and meditation online to audiences across the world.
