About this Website:

Shivabalayogi

This website is provided by:
the Shivabalayogi Seva Foundation
P.O. Box 64634, Tucson, AZ 85728  U.S.A.

an affiliate of
the Shri Shivabalayogi Maharaj International Trust, spiritual headquarters in Adivarapupeta

Shivabalayogi Seva Foundation

The Shivabalayogi Seva Foundation, based in Tucson, Arizona, supports local meditation and bhajan groups that are open to the public and make Shivabalayogi’s blessings, particularly his gift of initiation into meditation, available without charge.  The Foundation serves to make information and resources on Shivabalayogi available to the public.

Some of Shivabalayogi's devotees have their own websites, but the Shivabalayogi website does not promote any particular devotee.  We believe that Shivabalayogi's only successors are all of his devotees.

We hope that by making accurate information available about Shivabalayogi, we can all better understand not only this great Yogi of Yogis, but also other Self-realized yogis in all spiritual traditions, whether Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Sufi, Jewish or any other tradition.

Shri Shivabalayogi Maharaj International Trust

The Shri Shivabalayogi Maharaj International Trust was established in Bangalore in 1996 with its spiritual headquarters in Adivarapupeta.  Each Mahashivaratri, it holds an annual meeting in Adivarapupeta, open to all devotees.  The International Trust is not an ashram.  Instead, it actively supports Shivabalayogi ashrams and centers around the world and organizes meditation and bhajan programs in India.

Sathyaraju WeavingHandloom Publishing

HandloomHandloom is the name under which the Shivabalayogi Seva Foundation publishes books, videos and bhajan recordings about Shivabalayogi.

Shri Swamiji was born as Sathyaraju in the village of Adivarapupeta in Andra Pradesh, India.  Most of the villagers, like Swamiji’s own family, were members of the Devanga community, people who make their living weaving cloth.  Swamiji’s native village is small and rustic, a place where cloth is still woven on handlooms.  By the age of six, Swamiji himself had learned how to weave cotton sarees on a handloom.

The nadis, ancient astrological prophesies, state that in a past life, Shivabalayogi was Kabir, a great saint revered by Moslem and Hindu alike.  Kabir wrote mystical poetry and worked as a weaver of cloth.

Like Kabir and all Self realized beings,  Shivabalayogi does not belong to any religion.  He serves everyone.  And like other great Masters, he teaches through experiences which, with the course of time and perspective, transform the individual, seemingly unrelated threads into a beautiful tapestry of life.

The Shivabalayogi Website 

The Shivabalayogi website is an archive for documents, photographs, video recordings, audio recordings and movie film on Shivabalayogi.  The Foundation and the International Trust have over two hours of film, a hundred hours of video recordings, thirty hours of audio recordings of conversations, and 3,600 photographs of Shri Swamiji.  In addition to Swamiji’s personal papers, the Foundation has collected hundreds of personal experiences with Shivabalayogi, including from devotees throughout India, the United States, and England.

These resources are available to anyone who would like to use them.

The websites devoted to Shivabalayogi are:

 

Shivabalayogi Tapas 4mos

“Joining groups is Religion.  Let us say you are in a group.  Now just because you met Swamiji and learned the meditation you want to leave that group and join this group.  This is bad because the new group is also becoming something like a religion.  You should not do that.”

“There should not be any desire to have groups.  Everybody can do the meditation.  There is politics in religion.  There is no God in religion.”
