ShivYog Seva Abhiyan

One of Babaji's main expression of spiritual growth to all sadhaks has been Nishkaam Seva or selfless service to the creation. Babaji often explained in various ways how selfless service can help burn one's karmic influences eventually and accelerate spiritual growth. As Babaji continued living His words through all these years, Guruma and Ishan Shivanand ji joined hands with Him in this divine mission. Through the years, were captured many such moments that Babaji and His Foundation spent in the service of humans, animals and plants, all in equal interest and love. A small video of the journey through the unconditional act to serve as a reminder and inspiration for all sadhaks to walk this path of nishkam seva with the same spirit and love that the Master moves with... 


Words have limitations; let the video speak for itself.. Namah Shivaya!

Durga Saptashati Shivirs

As per Babaji's video message in late August 2012 to be in seclusion for deeper meditation for the benefit of all sadhaks and mankind, Babaji now wishes that the grace of the Divine Mother yet continue to reach the masses through the sacred Durga Saptashati Beej Mantra sadhana. This sacred sadhana will continue to reach the masses via shivirs through Babaji's voice and sankalp shakti (divine intention).

On the inspiration of the Divine Mother, Babaji will be continuing to extend the power blessings of the Divine Mother through Durga Saptashati Sadhana in satsang in His subtle form. The  satsangs will be organized throughout the country with Babaji's presence in the subtle form via the audio/visual medium, where people attending the  satsang  with pure intentions and devotion shall certainly receive His grace and blessings and be able to take full benefit of the  satsang. All those who attend these  satsangs with deep devotion and surrender to the Divine Mother will receive the grace of the Mother through Babaji's divine voice and sankalp (divine intent).

2012 is the time when everything in creation is ascending to higher dimensions and the earth is ascending from the current third dimension to fourth dimension. This is such a powerful period where even small amount of sadhana will magnify manifolds. Anything that is contemplated upon will magnify, as Babaji reminded in His personal video message (view it)

This period is a period that Babaji wishes none should miss as it the period of transformation that comes after many eras. All masters, sages and yogis in the physical and nonphysical form are working on this period in their own ways. Avdhoot Baba Shivanand is also secluding during this period in deep meditation during this great period of transformation for the benefit of those who are already connected with Him. 

Babaji from many years has been stressing that it is His subtle form that does the work in every  satsang  rather than his physical form and this has been experienced by sadhaks who connected in this form. Not just  satsangs but His subtle presence and grace is experienced by television viewers in their homes to the extent of receiving initiation on television just by listening to His voice and his darshan on television. All that is required for this is devotion, surrender and faith.

Babaji blesses heartily all those fortunate people who till now came forward and performed the noble deed or organizing the free  satsangs that were conducted free of cost during all these months that helped initiate and transform thousands of seekers. It is the nishkaam seva (selfless service) of these organizers that brought Divinity into so many homes.

To assist in Babaji's mission of these satsangs to continue to reach more and more people, it is sought that all people who have benefited and being initiated come forward for the nishkaam seva in organizing such satsangs in their locality and to also introduce their family and friends to such satsangs, so that they can receive the grace of the Divine Mother and bring divine transformation into their lives. These satsangs will be graced with Babaji's voice and sankalp shakti (divine intention) to all those who wish to receive this divine deeksha (initiation) of the sacred Durga Saptashati Beej Mantra sadhana. Babaji while in deep meditation in seclusion, will be subtly present in all these  satsangs to bless everyone.

Babaji's direct message to all sadhaks


Babaji to be in deep sadhana for benefit of all Shiv Yog sadhaks


Babaji is going to be in His deep sadhana in seclusion, which is for the benefit and deep healing of all Shiv Yog sadhaks. As Babaji said, this would be the best time to learn to connect with Him subtly rather than physical because this is what he essentially wants to teach every sadhak to do in this great period of ascension. Babaji has been working hard for the past two years for human upliftment and now He wishes to assist those wishing to ascend in the subtler dimensions. Babaji will be praying for very deep healing of all sadhaks but wishes that all now begin practicing now in depth the basics of Shiv Yog teachings that has been the foundation of all His shivirs. This is a great move and a great opportunity for sadhaks who are moving on the path of Shiv Yog.

Namah Shivaya

Love from little Kirti

A little one sent Babaji a cute red book that she made with her own hands containing the painting and sketches of her own depiction of the teachings of Babaji. What makes this sharing of hers interesting is the way she has expressed her learning through the sketches with examples and creativity in her own form. This book was widely seen and loved by all who looked at it and Guruma placed this book in the reception of the ashram for everyone to see. The moment we saw it, we wished to share this beautiful piece of her gratitude with everyone. It is amazing to notice how children catch and deeply absorb the teachings of Babaji, which expresses clearly in every sketch made here. This post is to inspire children to imbibe the teachings into their daily lives to make their lives  successful and pure.

Babaji and Guruma share their blessings. Namah Shivaya.

Share Your Love

What the Guru does for us is never replaceable. One's attempt to give him anything can still remain void because what we give is what we have received from Him itself.  Love is one such powerful emotion that generates from Babaji and love is something we can always give Him.  Baba ji always mentions that one can give to one's Guru by following His path and His teachings. Apart from this, one can only give one's love to Him... for the gratitude of all that He has done for us. For Babaji, everything is bhaav and the emotion of unconditional love is the quickest form of energy that He catches.  In an attempt to develop this bhaav more within us and in an attempt to be an example of this sharing, we came up with this page for sharing your love. Love expresses in many ways in a human being and here is an opportunity for you to express your love for Baba ji in an extraordinary way. We know that your love has been brimming to pour out in many ways with your abilities. If you can express your love and gratitude to the Guru in any unique way, you can send it to us and we will publish it here after a filtration process. These sharings will be offered in the "Your Love" section and would be also seen by Baba ji.

Since mails, letters, greetings, etc are in humongous qualities, it would be impractical to publish them here. But, what can be selected and shared is your sharing in any unique form of talent or ability.  You may wish to browse through some pages in this section to see what already some have offered.

Please note that if you wish to send scanned material it should be short enough to fit in a web page.  Audio/videos should not exceed more than 2 minutes.

You may send your sharing to shivyogfoundation@gmail.com

Lots of unconditional love and wishes,
Namah Shivaya

Sadhak's Love - South Africa

After a recent shivir and visit to South Africa, Babaji discovered a home for the underpriviledged, where many children were deprived of proper shelter, food, and clothes. Babaji was touched and he undertook a massive effort to extend all help He could to them. In few weeks the children had great transformation in their lives. After a while the children made with their own hands sketches, wrote in color, and wrote mails that reflected the gratitude and love for Babaji, which we wish to share it here. We have attempted to take pictures of the book as it was sent to preseve it's originality and share here the touching letters of transformation that it brought to the little ones.

Babaji has such many projects running throughout the world and in India for the deprived, which we wish to bring out and share it with sadhaks, so that all can take inspiration and imbibe the teachings of Babaji, which He preaches only after He practices. Babaji never deviates from any of His mission that He has set His focus on. His pace is at times at such a rate that it becomes even difficult to even spot his trail, but at times we get to catch the glimpse of his trail that is left behind in expressions of those whose lives He transformed with his touch of love and compassion. It will now be an ongoing effort to try and bring to you as much as we can, such expressions.

LETTER FROM EBENEZER HOME, SOUTH AFRICA

With the grace and blessing of our Satguru Babaji, we have continued on feeding programme for over a year. The Ebenezer Home houses 60 children, providing a creche to another 60 children and 40 children attend the Sunday school. The home also caters to and houses the elderly.

When Shree Ishan ji graced us with his presence, the children were taken on an excursion to "Boksbury Waterworld". For many, it was the first time that they actually visited a pool and a wonderful time was had by all.

Since the inception of the feeding scheme, the lives of all of the residents of Ebenezer Home have changed dramatically for the better. The residents are much happier as they have the benefit of good nutritious food daily. The school going children have shown great improvement in their efforts and in their results. All ingredients are brought daily at one time to provide healthy needs for all. With thanks to the 'Children of God Trust', the quality of life of The Ebenezer Home has increased greatly. This also has inspired the community of Lenasia South into performing seva for those that are in need.

Thanking Babaji and Shree Ishanji for giving the precious opportunity to do this seva.

Thank you Babaji. We hope to be graced by your presence in South Africa very soon.

With love and light,
~ Sadhak
