“Hinduism is the most liberating, enriching religion. I am here to give the best things of Hinduism to all of you - Paramashiva Jnana and Paramashiva Vijnana.� HDH Nithyananda Paramashivam 10

Introduction to Paramashivoham Its time. You have personally been chosen by Paramashiva Himself in the form of His Divine Holiness Bhagwan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam, to experience your super conscious breakthrough in the eternal dimension. More than ever, humanity needs to experience a super-conscious breakthrough. While the materialistic, hedonistic society reaches its peak after maximum profits; depression, boredom, anxiety, stress, wrong ideas about sex have become rampant. Rich countries that hold 90% of the world’s wealth are seeing more than 50% of their population depressed and using medication. His Divine Holiness Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam, has incarnated at this crucial moment and is offering the ULTIMATE gift to humanity - PARAMASHIVOHAM This is the ultimate spiritual happening on planet Earth. Is it possible to live a superhuman life in the human body?

Are some individuals really wired differently from the rest? Does such an awakened super-conscious state really exist? Are the expressions of a super-consciousness scientifically quantifiable? Can such states be transmitted from Master to disciple? YES. The STATE of Paramashiva - the unclutched state – the state of Nirvikalpa Samadhi, complete completion – what you call as the space of fulfilment – Poornatva. The SPACE of Paramashiva - the software with which He operates – Agama – the software with which he operates the Universe – the state from which he operates into space. The POWERS of Paramashiva everything He manifests, His powers Shaktis. The BEING of Paramashiva - literally embody Him, all his best qualities.


“Increasing the eternity dimension in you happens by having matured conversation with you and strategizing your life actions, reactions based on the truth - you are eternal. The powerfulness you feel by realizing the Cosmic truths is the permanent eternal power. Nithyatva, I can use and maybe I’ll create a new word “eternal Cosmic constant.” It is actually one of the dimension of the Universe!” HDH Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam

- HDH Nithyananda Paramashivam



Nithyananda Yoga is the revival of THE original Yoga. It has been revealed and gifted to the world by the Living Avatar Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam as per the intention of Paramashiva. Nithyananda Yoga is all about experiencing, expressing and manifesting the state, space, powers and glory of Paramashiva! As the first of many gifts in the field of Yoga delivered by HDH, it is the only Yoga in the world to revive physical postures along with the chanting of their Sanskrit pramanas. In an Akashic Revelation, His Divine Holiness Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam announced to the world the 12-dimensions of Yoga, here every asana is paired with11 additional Yogic components to fully stimulate all the senses. By practicing Yoga with these components, strong roots are built within the body and ecstatic bliss is experienced. This Yoga delivers the direct experience of Samadhi (experience of Oneness with the Ultimate). Paramashivoham participants will be blessed to experience Cosmic union with Paramashiva through performing the ritual of yoga every day throughout the 21 day program.


12 Components Of Nithyananda Yoga

AUSHADHA Aushadha is the sacred alchemy science from the ancient Siddha tradition which is a key component of authentic Yoga to fully engage all the senses and stimulate the body through the alchemical processes. It combines sacred herbs, prana (the cosmic force energy), and most importantly the 20

Shaktipada (entanglement energy) of Paramashiva (the ultimate), which can be ingested or physically applied to enter into the body. Through this ancient science, the state, space, and powers of Paramashiva can be experienced, giving access to the 25 states of Consciousness. Like how a perfect mirror reflects the sun perfectly, so does a perfect body reflect consciousness. The science of Aushadha prepared as per Agamas is a way to make the body like a pure mirror! The Aushadhas selected for this process are turmeric, kumkum, jnananjana, and sandalwood.

Turmeric is applied to the temples to completely detoxify the entire system and help you manifest powers of Paramashiva. Sandalwood is used to invoke Divine energies. It is one of the most powerful medicines in Ayurveda for detoxing, cooling the body, healing wounds, and healthy skin. It is famous for its anti-aging qualities but also its spiritual properties, like clearing the mind and reducing stress. Kumkum is processed turmeric. It also has the capacity to penetrate the skin and enter into the system. When applied to the brow center, it decalcifies the third eye, Ajna chakra, and also allows you to manifest powers. Jnananjana

is an eyeliner, the knowledge eyeliner, made with pure ghee and pure cotton wick. That jnanānjana applied on three eyes, detoxifies all the three eyes and raises your frequency, making you understand the 5 aspects of Ishvara, 11 dimensions of Universe, and 25 states of Consciousness – the whole Maya Matrix. Jnanānjana is alchemy science to master the Maya Matrix. MUDRAS Mudrā (a Sanskrit word meaning “seal”) refers to the positioning of the limbs, fingers or even tongue in a certain way to seal this prana into our body, a way of aligning to the


cosmic geometry. His Divine Holiness defines mudras simply as an “energy circuit connection.” Mudras are a way to stimulate the flow of prana shakti (life force energy and Cosmic currency) inside us. Mudras are psycho-physical processes, which help accelerate the effect of an Asana and Pranayama to take us to a higher state of consciousness. By positioning the body in certain ways to block the dissipation of prana and direct it inwards, Mudras create the space for Pratyahara and Dharana, the higher experiences of Yoga, to happen in us. Throughout the Prathama Vinyasa Krama, you will experience mudras of the hands and of the gaze, called drishti. The Shastras (scriptures that are direct revelations from MahaSadashiva) reveal the layers of benefits that can result from the integrated practice of mudras, ranging from health and longevity, to mental focus, awakening the subtle grooves of the brain responsible for higher emotions such as devotion and gratitude, to the ultimate experience of transcending our limiting cognitions we carry as human beings and living and radiating the state, space and shaktis of MahaSadashiva himself. 22

It is mentioned repeatedly in the scriptures that initiation by the Guru holds the “Master Key”, that can transform us from human beings into superhuman beings.

ASANAS In the science of Yoga, context and intention are everything. Why you bend your body matters: for whatever intention you move the body, that experience will be delivered to you. That is why in Nithyananda Yoga, we maintain the space of Yoga as a ritual, as a direct connection between Paramashiva and us. With every asana, it is important to maintain a strong

visualization of that asana. Many asana names are a direct meditation upon different gods and goddesses. Some asanas take the form of specific animals or other living creatures. When we keep a clear visualization of each form we are embodying, the body can settle into the depth-experience of each and every posture. Many times MahaSadashiva tells in the scriptures that Oneness can be experienced through seeing Him in everything, in each and every point we bring our gaze to. Through the sequence of 108 asanas, you will be guided to meditate upon specific visualizations for each asana.

will have the coat of that mantra. It becomes like the ajapa japa. You will see this rudraksha and the mild vibration meeting, and the kundalini in

JAPAS Japa is the internal chanting of a mantra with the visualization of it rotating around the throat in a circular way, allowing the yogi to feel the mild vibration of that mantra. When chanting, wear an energized rudraksha bead exactly on the n Vishuddhi chakra, in the hollow of the throat. This is the place where the air is getting converted into sound. If e you wear energized rudraksha there, constantly every word coming out



“Extreme authenticity makes you manifest Kalabhairava. Do intense authentic yoga every day. You can choose any time you want. One Prathama Vinyasa Krama, all the hundred and eight, twelve component sequence. At least Prathama Vinyasa Krama. Do intensely every day, Kalabhairava can manifest in you and make realization happen.

Authenticity makes Kalabhairava manifest. Understand. Kalabhairava breaks, destroys, burns all self-doubt, self-hatred, self-denial. I tell you, even if you have not realized, Kalabhairava can manifest in you and make realization happen. That is the 24 power of Kalabhairava.�

About Nithyananda Hindu University Nithyananda Hindu University is revival of the most ancient knowledge transmission system. It is the oldest university as per known records - that was first started in Kailaasa by Paramashiva Himself and then established in various sacred places such as Naimisharanya, Varanasi, Kanchi, Mathura, Avathika, etc - the mokshapuris.

As per the Kamika Agama, Devi receives Upadesa from Paramashiva and she comes down to Kanchi bringing the science of superconsiousness from Kailaasa. She established the science as a civilization through the Kanchi Kailaasa Sarvajnapeetam. As per the Arunachala Puranam, after getting married to Paramashiva, she asked for the boon of residing in the left half of Paramashiva. Paramashiva guides her to go to Gautama Ashram which is located right across our Thiruvannamalai Aadheenam and does tapas. She attains Enlightenment and 50

merges into Paramashiva becoming Ardhanaareshwara. She then spreads the Science of Superconsciousness brought from Kailaasa to Kanchi into Thiruvannamalai. All sampradayas existing today including Shaivism, Vaishnavism, Shaktam, Kaumaram, Vedanta, Siddhanta, Advaita vedanta happened from the most flourishing Kanchi Kailaasa Sarvajnapeetam. The great rishi, Bodhidharma was

Adi Shankaracharya, the reviver of Advaita Vedanta sampradaya attains samadhi in Kanchi Kailaasa Sampradaya. Kamika Agama was flourishing in Kanchi and Thiruvannamalai for eons through the Kanchi Kailaasa Sarvajnapeetam.
