The Sovereign Archives
The Sovereign Archives are the sacred and divine artifacts from the life of His Divine Holiness Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam, collected with great reverence in order to be preserved for thousands of years to come. The archives is a large collection of physical artifacts, photographs, and documents from His life, recording the divine interactions, miracles and many blessings that He bestowed. Each artifact tells us the story of The Avatar and inundates us by the lifetime of hard work, sincerity and dedication that He has demonstrated for His mission of bringing a Superconscious Breakthrough to humanity and reviving ShriKailasa.
This online portal is a gallery of the available archives with us currently. As there is a large collection already available, we are continuing to upload and display all the archives.
1981 | Portrait of Yogiraj Yogananda Puri
Yogiraj Yogananda Puri, who recognised The Avatar at age 3 and authentically played the role as His Yoga Guru, laying the foundation for traditional yoga to be re-established on planet Earth and reach millions of people worldwide.
Of the same caliber as great Yogis such as Kinaram Baba and Trailinga Swami, Yogi Yogananda Puri was a seventh or eighth generation powerful yogi of the Natha Sampradāya – a lineage of yogis that traces its source to ParamaShiva Himself, where Sādhus (ascetics) master the science of manifesting powers or Śaktis, expressing them in their most raw and powerful form.
For a long time, until the British colonizers split India into smaller countries, Yogananda Puri resided in a southeast territory of India called Brahmadesh, today known as Myanmar (Burma). He appeared in a village, in the outskirts of Tiruvannamalai, on 20 April 1913 and lived until 7 May 1995. We use the word ‘appeared’ because his actual date of birth is unknown. So it can only be told that he surfaced to his people on 20 April 1913. Going by what He revealed to The Avatār over time, he would have been at least 120 years when he died. He radiated extraordinary Śaktis!
Yogananda Puri stood by Manu (planet Earth’s first-ever lawmaker), who said that knowledge is free. Even though he was an amazing yogi, he took up a job as a cashier in The State Bank of India, and worked to maintain his family. He had twelve children.
