SHIRDI SAI TEMPLE & Sri Kaleshwar University

Sri Sai Kaleshwar


His Early Years Sri Kaleshwar was born in 1973 in a small village in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. As a young child, his behavior was ‘peculiar’ and worrying to his parents. He appeared dumb; he didn’t talk for the first seven years of his life and would often take only a drop of water on his fingertip as sustenance. ﷯ Many divine occurrences occurred around him. Mother Divine in the form of the Goddess Saraswati, manifested at the feet of the sleeping boy during an afternoon nap at his grandfather’s farm. Many saints visited the family’s house telling Kaleshwar’s parents about the special destiny of their third child. But it was not until he was 14 years old that Kaleshwar’s real spiritual awakening occurred. Sri Kaleshwar shared in his biography that Shirdi Sai Baba, an extraordinary saint who died in 1918, miraculously appeared to him in an abandoned temple. Shirdi Baba using his divine energy miraculously changed a bowl of rotting food into a delicious meal for him to eat. Kaleshwar calls this his “enlightenment day”. His master, Shirdi Baba, had returned again in this life to meet him again to awaken his divine energy channels. Soon after this auspicious encounter with Baba, Kaleshwar’s miraculous spiritual powers and healing abilities spontaneously began to unfold and his destined work and dharma for the world would begin. For the next 10 years, Kaleshwar practiced intense sadhana under Shirdi Baba’s guidance. Baba led him to many ancient palm leaf manuscripts written by the maharishis 1000's of years back, who directly received ancient formulas and sacred information directly from Mother Divine and the angels. During his sadhana of 10 years, Sri Kaleshwar traveled throughout India; visiting many powerful holy spots and meeting with hundreds of saints, discussing his research with them. He practiced exactly the processes prescribed in these manuscripts and experienced its results himself. These practices were not for his enlightenment, but for his plan to share them with his students and for their success in winning specific divine blessings from Mother Divine. He himself had innumerable experiences that came as the fruit of these practices: Darshan of Mother Divine, Shiva, and several divine souls where they would physically appearing and offering him boons. He would only ask for boons that would result in the well being of mankind, and especially for his students. His practices were a demonstration of the power of correctly doing prayers in order to receive their austerities . “It doesn’t matter what I teach. It doesn’t matter what you believe. What you practice is important. The right direction brings the results,” he says. These practices done with an open heart, surrender and dedication will bring God to you. These are the “sacred formulas” written in the palm leaf manuscripts that reveal how to use certain mantras and yantras to directly experience the Divine energy. Knowledge of the Rishis Bringing this knowledge to the world was the primary focus of his life. Sri Kaleshwar does not﷯ consider this knowledge to be his own: “It’s not my knowledge. It’s the knowledge of the supernatural saints. These are the kind of formulas we have, knowledge from 3,000 years back. This is the first time it’s being brought out. It’s completely the first time. Now it can be used. My mission, my ambition, is to grow the knowledge fast. I am giving formulas of the supernatural energies. They are a short cut to get Divine Grace in a short time. I want to spread this knowledge. Then everybody can smell the fragrance of God.” Previously these manuscripts were mostly hidden from the world. They had been handed down through the lineages of saints in India who protected and kept them secret. Only a few were given access to them. But Sri Kaleshwar says the time has come when there are people responsible enough to utilize this knowledge to help the world in this time of greatest need. The information in these manuscripts is the foundation of teachings which Sri Kaleshwar has taught over the span of his life. It is this “extraordinary knowledge” which Virabramhendra predicted 500 years back when he wrote The Kalajana. As a great seer, he saw "A great light" will come to Penukonda and he will create great knoweldge and he will teach people how to connect to the divine directly. These formulas were created to unlock a person’s hidden potential and developing their personal relationship with God, and understanding the mechanisms of Creation. Kali Yuga: Knowledge is Important Sri Kaleshwar says that although there is so much darkness and negativity in our age, there is also the greatest opportunity to become enlightened very quickly. He says, “The real purpose of life is to know the truth of why we’re here. Before you drop your body, try to see the reality. Do whatever you want and at the same time think, what is the purpose that you came here. What is the life message you want to give the planet? Each soul has to be a great scientist, a soul scientist. You have to discover something then give your own style of message. We all came from that greatness but we are ignoring our greatness. We feel we are in darkness. No way. There’s an unbelievably huge light hidden in us. Through certain processes you have to bring that energy up then everything will be possible for you to recognize yourself.” Mother Divine: The Inner Mechanism of Miracles Sri Kaleshwar said that this is the first time in spiritual history that this kind of miracle energy, is being made available to so many seekers. This means not only receiving miracle energy by doing these practices but seeing with our own eyes the inner mechanism of miracles—seeing how a supernatural occurrence can be created in the natural world. To understand God, we must understand God’s energy. God’s energy cannot be separated from miracle energy. ﷯“God is miracle energy. God is supernatural ability. Without miracle energy, we can’t call Him God,” he says. It is seeing practically how miracle energy works; how healing energy occurs, flows and its effect. Through these practices, Sri Kaleshwar’s students have gained the ability to experience and absorb the higher cosmic energies. By increasing our own soul energy, it becomes possible to connect to Mother Divine and see Her with our own eyes. Through the teachings and practices which Sri Kaleshwar has taught, students can now embark in a personal process leading to real relationship with Mother Divine. Only through discipline to do the spiritual practices and open heart can we directly connect with Mother Divine. Sri Kaleshwar says he offered his life to Mother Divine to prepare and give out the inner mechanism of miracles. This is why hundreds of his students have had experiences with Mother Divine and have received Her boons and blessings. He said, “No master for 2,000 years has given a guarantee to connect to the real Mother in physical form, to receive amazing healing abilities and enlightenment channels (from Her).” Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, the great saint of Dakshineswar, performed these sadhanas because﷯ he longed to see Mahakali, a form of Mother Divine. Through the same processes, he was able to win a channel so that he was able to see and talk with Her everyday. It is Sri Kaleshwar’s personal feeling that Ramakrishna Paramahamsa gave these practices to his students but they did not know how to follow the guidelines properly and so did not get the results. It is said that even his foremost disciple, Swami Vivekananda, only saw Mother Divine’s toe. Sri Kaleshwar said, “We are not seeing any of Paramahamsa’s students leading the globe today. We have to wait and see the results. What will happen?” Because of the boons granted by the Mother Herself to Sri Kaleshwar, his students would be able to have this miraculous ability of connecting to Her. Once a person connects to Mother Divine, especially the form of Mahakali, the very air they breathe would become sanctified. They would purify everything around them. The Mother’s energy would flow through them and they could bless the world with Her shakti . Sri Kaleshwar says that it is through shakti that a person can help the world and give an experience of satchitananda. Self Realization & Human Potential This ancient knowledge––‘Science of the Soul’––is taught in Penukonda, at Sri Kaleshwar’s ashram in Southern India. He also instructed his long time student Paul Aryeh to also create an "Amazing Spiritual Center" here in Los Angeles; a place where the same knowledge and practices which he taught could be offered to many future students. The knowledge and practices are the tools by which a soul can realize itself, achieve miraculous abilities and become a "pourna avatar" , a dazzling, enlightened soul whose life is an inspiring message to the planet. Such a person understands the mystery of life and death, can make impossible things possible, and can give others the direct experience of reality. Sri Kaleshwar said, “Every soul has the potential to reach the level of a Shirdi Baba or Jesus and contribute amazing things to the world. Everybody can do it. That’s my golden statement. That’s my mission. Everybody’s equal. What did Jesus Christ say? ‘Who really trusts in me—they will become more powerful than myself.’ That means all his students.” Sri Kaleshwar felt the majority of saints were not able to take students to this level of mastery because they did not know how to give the proper guidelines to these practices to achieve success. It was his deepest desire to create hundreds of spiritual masters who in turn will continue to create a lineage of many more spiritual masters. He has asked Mother Divine for the boon that his students will be even greater than him. When asked what he feels is his greatest gift to the world, he says humbly, “My students.”
