Physical Connection to Divine Consciousness
Shivabalayogi meditated for twelve years to guide others to their own awareness and understanding.
Sage of the Soul
Shivabalayogi experienced enlightenment (samadhi) at age fourteen, then meditated in samadhi for twelve years. He emerged on August 7, 1961, a Self-realized yogi.
Successors Shivabalayogi has no successor. He continues to be present for each person who seeks his guidance. His powerful physical presence is anchored in samadhi, including the Samadhi, the tomb in Adivarapupeta where his body rests.
“The outside guru guides and shows you the path.
The internal guru gives you visions.
It is the guru inside who appears to you and gives you darshan.
The outside guru is a yogi.
The inner guru is God.”
Practical Spirituality Shivabalayogi’s spiritual teaching is very simple and practical. As we become more aware of the source of our own consciousness, our tensions reduce. We understand our purpose in life, work more effectively with others, and enjoy life more fully.
His Empowerment Unique to Shivabalayogi are the powers he attained through 12 years of meditation, and how he freely shares them. His presence evokes experiences and he responds to our needs through empowerment and healing. He removes obstacles to our own awareness and understanding.
Public Programs: Silent Teaching Shivabalayogi teaches in silence through practical experiences. Everywhere he traveled, he gave public programs where he evoked spiritual awakening through his mere presence (darshan), meditation, and music (bhajans, spiritual song).
Spirituality without the Religion Shivabalayogi, like all great sages and saints, insists that spirituality is not limited by any religion, social background, or belief system.
Teaching Shivabalayogi teaches through silence and direct experience, but he also was eager to explain when answering devotees’ questions. He had much to say about subjects as diverse as yogis, Jesus, spiritual leaders, religions, scriptures, spiritual practices, fate and world conditions.

Shivabalayogi chants Om Namah Shivaya
Many of Swamiji's own photo albums are now available for public view.
These albums were kept under lock and key and made available only a few months before Shri Swamiji entered mahasamadhi. The albums were put together by Swamiji’s devotees, either to organize photos given to him or to present their own photos to him.
You can access them from the PHOTOGRAPHS main page of this website.
The Living Yogi, the Book
