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.
1990 | The Young Avatar’s photo after His enlightenment experience at the age of 12
1990 | Shortly after His enlightenment experience at the age of 12, The young Avatar’s Yoga Guru Yogananda Puri arranged for a photoshoot to take portrait pictures of Him. This is the first ever picture of The Avatar in samadhi in Tiruvannamalai, His birth place.
He would apply vibhuti (sacred ash) in 16 places on His body as per the Hindu tradition. He is sitting on a deer skin given to Him by Yogananda Puri.
The photographer who took this picture was the same person who witnessed and captured Him in levitation while training with Yogananda Puri.
One can see in The Avatar’s own handwriting, the words Sulumunai Dhyanam (meaning Kundalini meditation) in Tamil on top, and His name A.Rajasekaran at the bottom. The studio where this was taken is Kala Studio as evidence by the label in the bottom right corner.
It was behind this photograph that The Avatar had drawn a picture of Himself in answer to a question as to how He would look when He grew up.
