Shashwata Seva (Permanent Sponsorship/ Membership)

Avadhoota Datta Peetham founded by His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji has been a center for promoting various spiritual, social, cultural and charitable activities.  It has been a place where many find solace, peace of mind and tranquility. It has also appeased the intellect of many seekers in the path of spiritual wisdom through its multifarious activities efficiently designed by His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, to suit the changing times and needs of the present day man. Adopting all the traditional paths of Bhakti, Jnana, Karma and Yoga, Sri Swamiji has been able to quench the thirst of many a seekers as well as promote both Veda and Nada that essentially form the two wheels of the chariot of Indian Philosophy.
Shashwata Seva is a permanent membership scheme in Avadhoota Datta Peetham. It has been envisaged by His Holiness Sri Swamiji to enable a devotee to perform all the worshipful activities on a particular day of the sponsors’ choice to all the shrines in Avadhoota Datta Peetham. The rituals shall be performed as per the tradition of the Peetham.

On payment of Rs.100, 000/- (Rupees One Lakh only) one time or in installments, one becomes a life time member of the Peetham in this scheme. On a particular day selected by that individual every year, all the rituals to all the deities in the Peetham will be performed seeking blessings for their family. These rituals include Gopuja (cow pooja), milk abhishekam to Lord Datta and archana, srichakra pooja, homa, annadaana, kakada aarati etc. of the whole day. Further this service opportunity will also accrue the benefits to the sponsor, of participation in the innumerable social service activities of the Peetham being privileged members of the Peetham. All these members would be eligible to receive a Shashwata Seva Membership card.
 Devotees can choose any day in the calendar year for this Seva to be performed. They can choose birthday, marriage day, parent's marriage day or child's birthday etc. for performing the seva. The date can be according to the Gregorian calendar or Indian calendar. Every year on the chosen day, the sponsors will be able to partake in the all the designated Sevas. If the sponsors cannot be physically present on the chosen day, the sevas will be performed on their behalf and the prasadam will be mailed to the provided address.

Pujya Sri Swamiji has further given the consent that one may perform this service on his/her own name or on the name of Guru and Guru Parampara (lineage of Swamiji). Members who enroll for more than one Shashwata Seva will be called PATRONS. His Holiness has graced that all these members with a personal photograph with Him in due course of time. Further Sri Swamiji would be sending blessing emails to these devotees provided they give their valid email IDs and consent to receive such mails.

Kriya Yoga

Register to this Seva

Kriya Yoga involves learning breath control (Pranayama) to effectively channeling the flow of Prana (life force) which traverses the 72,000 Nadis or astral nerves in the human body. By doing so the aspirant learns to direct mental power to canalize the energy in the three Nadis, and remove the knots in the nervous system, which obstruct the rhythmic flow of Prana. By undoing these knots a Kriya yogi opens the path for Kundalini energy to flow. According to Markandeya Purana, Kriya Yoga was revealed by Lord Dattatreya to great saints and yogis of ancient India. Sri Swamiji has made it an inseparable part of His mission to revive this ancient knowledge and bring it to everyone. He has been actively propagating the benefits of Kriya Yoga to millions of people. Many have been trained in this process of Kriya Yoga and are reaping its material and spiritual benefits. Kriya Yoga helps aspirants to learn to activate and control their senses and to control their thought processes.

Kriya Yoga is the way which leads to realization by refining the senses and getting control over them through mental exercises and pranayamas (breath control).

Kriya Yoga is not just learning Pranayama (breathing techniques) but also several aspects that improve healthful living. It involves teachings about good and moral based life, developing love for nation, developing a spirit of sacrifice to help others, developing Sattvic eating habits. It is very useful module for everybody especially in today's tension filled lives. It is an encapsulated approach that answers several issues of our day to day life.
Kriya Yoga is a way of life and not just knowledge or practice for an hour or so. It is a continuous phenomenon. It enables one to experience that the same energy that drives the Universe also drives each of us. It establishes a link between the individual self and the Supreme self and expands the horizons of the individual to infinity. Age, Gender, Religion, Caste or Creed is no bar to enter into Yoga.” - Sri Swamiji Says.

Pranayama is the key to kriya yoga. We are breathing every moment indiscriminately without knowing that our breath is the vital energy. We live so long as our breath is there. By indiscriminate breathing we waste our energy. The same breath which we take day in and day out, when consciously seen through the mind and regulated through Pranayama, no longer remains breath in the physical sense of the term. Instead, it becomes instantaneously a spiritual energy. The effect of our breath on nervous system is totally different depending on whether we are "physically" breathing or whether we have spiritualized our breath. The same thing (Breath) which without yogic understanding was physical, when properly guarded, respected and regulated through principles of Pranayama (kriya yoga), becomes spiritual energy, and our life thereafter takes a yogic stance. All this looks very easy, but it is extremely subtle. What all we have to do is to spiritualize our breath. Breathing, as such, is physical but Pranayama is spiritual. Their common denominator is the "air principle" [vayu tatva]. Our ultimate goal in Pranayama is to quiet the mind and experience Bliss.

The goal of all Yoga is to unite Man with God. But the paths are many and seemingly confusing. Raja Yoga, Kriya Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Nadopasana, Kundalini Yoga etc. These are but few, and only a Master can explain their depths and differences.

"Long breath, Long life. Short breath, Short life… A long breath, a long Pranayama is beneficial for our nervous system and mental balance… Whoever practices long breathing will not be tired at all. Those with a short breath will become tired."
- Sri Swamiji

"Many people are impressed by the effect of Pranayama in balancing the mind. Every body faces problems related to health, wealth, office, children, house etc., we get upset, irritated, disappointed, and angry which depletes our energy. Then our nervous system works hard and our heart pumps rapidly wasting our precious energy. Through Pranayama, one can control breath, senses, food and other actions." - Sri Swamiji

Sri Swamiji has bestowed a marvelous opportunity to be able to participate in promoting these ancient Kriya Yoga techniques and educate more people on the benefits of Kriya Yoga in their day to day life. Please contribute generously any amount for the propagation of Kriya Yoga and seek Sri Swamiji’s divine blessings.
