The Lineage of Yoga

Throughout Hindu history, after the revelation of Yoga by Paramashiva Himself, great Yogis and sadhus practiced Yoga to acquire the best physique and physiology to manifest the state and powers of Paramashiva. This is authentic Yoga.

Even 30 years back, Yogananda Puri was alive on Earth, shamelessly showcasing the Shaktis from the Hindu Shastra. He was born in 1921 in a small village on the outskirts of Tiruvannamalai. He grew up practicing the traditions of the Natha Sampradaya, which evolved into a powerful Yogi roaming all over India. He resided in Burma until 1948 when the British split India into smaller countries. That is when he returned to Tiruvannamalai and settled down.

But it wasn’t until 1978 that his true purpose for descending on planet Earth was fulfilled.

January 1978, the cosmos Itself was born in a human body. In the twilight hour of the morning, He assumed the body inside his mother’s womb. His name was Rajasekaran, and He would later be known to the world as THE SPH BHAGAVAN SRI NITHYANANDA PARAMASHIVAM.

Yogananda Puri was in the young Avatar’s life from the beginning. 

The Avatar SPH Nithyananda Paramashivam describes the extraordinary Power Yogananda Puri carried. He says, “My Guru, Raghupati Yogi, he is extraordinary. He is a body of miracles! He is just a bunch of miracles! That’s all! Anything he does will be a miracle. He will sip the cold water through his nose and spit it through his mouth, which will be boiling water! I have seen the kind of play he will do. And he will sip the hot coffee through the mouth and start releasing that through the nose. When it reaches the ground, it will become an ice ball; please understand, ice cube! It means he can play anything with his body! He can make his body a hot boiler or freezer! I saw that he was cooking just by touching the pot! He will put water and rice and touch them in the mud pot. In two minutes, the rice is ready! He will tell, ‘Come on, eat! The kind of heat he will generate through his body or cold he can generate through his body! His body was a freezer and boiler, all put together! Early morning, when he wakes me up and takes me to the temple to teach Yoga, during this Margazhi month, the water will be icy. I have seen him doing this multiple times. He will point to the area where I am taking a bath. That area will be warm. Sometimes, even hot water! In the temple tank, he will put his finger and say, ‘Come on. Take a bath!” It will be warm or hot water; I’ve never felt cold! That is a different level. I am talking about the normal, so-called, your plane. And my grandfather- the kind of faith he had about his body! We are the last generation who have seen that kind of people.”

Now, the SPH Nithyananda Paramashivam has promised to make thousands of Yogis and lead the whole world into a conscious awakening.

Nithyananda Yoga – The Authentic Yoga

Nithyananda Yoga is the revival of THE original Yoga. It has been revealed and gifted to the world by Living Avatar SPH Nithyananda Paramashivam as per the intention of Paramashiva, not as a mere physical exercise but as a clear path to manifest yogic powers.

Nithyananda Yoga is all about experiencing, expressing, and manifesting the state, space, powers, and glory of Paramashiva!

Revival of Paramashiva’s Original Yoga

For most Yogis around the world, enlightened master Patanjali is the Father of Yoga: He presented a system called Ashtanga Yoga, comprising eight dimensions of Yoga, approximately 3,000 years ago.

Little did we know that Yoga was revealed in detail by Paramashiva, the first and foremost Guru, in a system He revealed as Shashtanga Yoga over 60,000 years before Patanjali!

Paramashiva reveals Shashtanga Yoga in the Kirana Agama – (Yoga Pada 2.3), one of the original authentic scripture on Yoga:


प्रत्याहारस्तथा ध्यानं प्राणायामोस्थ धारणम् ।

आसनञ्च समाधिश्च योगाङ्गानि षडेव तु ॥ ३ ॥

pratyaharastatha dhyana prā āyāmostha dharaam |

Asanañcasamadhiśca Yoga gani a evatu||3||

It is to be known that there are six limbs of Yoga. Now listen to those subservient parts of yogic practice: pratyahara, dhyana, prääyäma, dharana, asana, and samadhi are the six constituents of the Yoga system.

Three truths you need to know about Yoga

On June 21st, 2016, International Day of Yoga, the SPH Nithyananda Paramashivam addressed the world in a mind-blowing discourse, sharing sacred secrets on the true Origins of Yoga. Here is what you have never been told but need to know about Yoga:

1) Yoga is from Paramashiva

First, you need to know that Yoga did not originate from Patanjali. “Patanjali is the organizer, not originator. That’s the first thing you need to know”, said the SPH Nithyananda Paramashivam.

The SPH explained, “With all my respects to Patanjali, I want to declare this truth to the world: 60,000 years before Patanjali, a Being walked on the Planet Earth, assuming the physical form, Adi Guru, Paramashiva, the Founder and Father of the Yoga system.

Patanjali Yoga Sutras is an excellent book, but not the first one. Unfortunately, many popular Yoga gurus worldwide always stop with Patanjali. Very few say Yoga was before Patanjali, and even if they say, they’re unable to present the scriptures and literature.

All the revelations of Paramashiva are called Agamas, the complete work of Paramashiva, where He presents detailed, elaborate material with high-quality precision. People are very comfortable having Patanjali as the originator of Yoga because Patanjali can be secularized, but not Paramashiva.

2) Yoga is from Hinduism

The second important truth is that Yoga is from Hinduism.

Always ask for the original source. Unfortunately, the original scriptures revealed by Paramashiva are not available to the masses. Unfortunately, nobody promoted that because it is straightforward to secularize Patanjali and tough to secularize Paramashiva.

We must understand that Yoga cannot be developed or separated from Hinduism. It is a perfect system revealed by Paramashiva and further organized by living enlightened masters and disciples of Paramashiva over thousands of years, with a clear purpose and intention.

You cannot develop on Paramashiva. Yoga is a complete science that has considered all types of bodies, past, present, and yet to come in the future. Altering Yoga is not development but dilution.

The secular world has diluted a great science we have yet to discover and reveal to the masses. But first, understand that if you have practiced something in the name of Yoga, ask your teacher for an apparent reference. Where did this technique come from? Always ask for the source. Only then should you even consider practicing these techniques safely.

3) Yoga is the science of radiating enlightenment

The third important truth is that Yoga is not just the science of keeping you healthy; it is the science of radiating enlightenment. Through Yoga, one attains liberation.

Sastra Pramana, scriptural authority:

Paramashiva reveals in Kirana Agama-Yoga Pada (II.3)


योगाद्सिद्धिश्च मोक्षश्च तदभ्यासाच्छुभम् खग ।

षडङ्गरसच बोद्धव्यस्तस्याङ्गाम् सृणुष्व तत् ॥


Yogadsiddhiśca mokshaśca tadabhyäsäcchubham khaga|

shadagassaca boddhavyastasya gamshnu vatat ||

Through the practice of Yoga, one can attain beneficent accomplishments. He can achieve liberation. He can ascend to the state of ineffable bliss.

Yoga is not just the ability to stretch your body. It is the ability to manifest what you want. Yoga is not all about making you a better man. Yoga is all about making you Superman.

Nithyananda Yoga is THE Yoga for your body.

Power of Yogic Physiology

Understand, Yogic Body means Power, energy, flexibility, and health. All these four put together is a Yogic body. The yogic body in itself is a Power. All four qualities are worked upon and developed through the authentic practice of Nithyananda Yoga”, including traditional asanas, pranayamas, yogic cleansing techniques, mudras, bandhas, and the traditional Rope and Pole Yoga: Shivakhamba.

When the body is intensely prepared by the practice of Nithyananda Yoga and Shivakhamba, the master’s initiation- the Shaktipata, becomes Power.

The Power of Yogic physiology is the ability to go beyond food. The ability to build itself on pure Prana and long breath. The ability to go beyond sleep and eat as much as it wants or as little as possible. A Yogic body is one whose muscle memory expresses its peak possibilities.

Having a glimpse of enlightenment, a satori is relatively easy. But to hold and radiate the same energy continuously, the body needs preparation.

It needs to develop a strong nervous system. Only then will it hold the master’s energy during initiation. It will directly manifest as powers.

In a male body, you should start with Power, then add flexibility and energy; it will become healthy. For the female body, begin with flexibility, then add Power, then add energy; it will become healthy. That is why the male body should start from Shivakhamba.

Nithyananda Yoga is a great possibility! The possibility to live an extraordinary life in an extraordinary body. You are now ready to start your practice!
