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.
1988 | Rare Photographs of The Avatar donning the Saffron Robe Given to Him by Aruṇagiri Yogīśvara
1988 | This very rare photograph of The young Avatār at around the age of 10, was discovered in Tiruvannamalai by the biography team, with a veteran photographer of the temple town.
In this photograph, The Avatār is seen at Pavala Kundru, where He practically spent most part of His childhood. It is also the place where He had the enlightenment experience between the age of 11 and 12. And it is the place where His Vedānta and Tantra Guru Mata Vibhutānanda Puri built the first Aadheenam (monastery) for Him, recognising Him as a spiritual leader who was going to transform the lives of millions. The building she built can be seen in the picture behind Him as a small narrow unfinished strip in front of the temple-like structure.
Here, The Avatār is wearing the saffron robe of initiation into sanyas (monkhood), given to Him by Aruṇagiri Yogīśvara, the embodiment of Paramaśiva, who took the human form of an ascetic, and played the role of His Guru for a period of nine and a half months in the physical plane.
