Welcome to Kumbh Mela 2016 @ Ujjain !
Congratulations for taking the decision to attend the Shuddhadvaitam program in this auspicious Kumbh Mela 2016 in Ujjain!
Shuddhadvaitam is a brand new 21 day transformational program conducted by the Living Incarnation Paramahamsa Nithyananda, we fondly call Swamiji, for you to experience the ultimate reality. Living Shuddhadvaitam is not just living Oneness, but expressing all the qualities and powers of Mahadeva. This year is dedicated for that. You will experience POSSIBILITY in its highest form. The auspicious planetary configuration of Simhasta Kumbh charges the whole atmosphere with divine cosmic energy, radiating it intensely, giving everyone present the possibility for Enlightenment!
Swamiji will be blessing us with 70 initiations for the 70 powers of Mahadeva. Imagine the effect of 70 initiations received at the Simhasta period which is the highest possible alignment of the Cosmos for us to experience the ultimate.
“Kumbh Mela is a Vedic celebration. Millions of devotees and pilgrims come from all over the world with a single-minded fervour of devotion and faith to take a dip in the sacred waters to feel oneness with the Supreme Being and Enlightenment. You will have the experience of living a minimalistic life of aparigraha, and experience POSSIBILITY in its highest form.”
