uttiṣṭhata jāgrata prāpya varān nibodhata |
kṣurasya dhārā niśitā duratyayā durgam pathas tat kavayo vadanti ||
- Katopinashad 1.3.14
"Arise! Awake! Wake up your Self and awaken others! Approach the great Awakened Ones till you awaken and manifest your Complete Self. Sharp as the blade of a razor is that path (of living advaita), so declare the wise beings – long and hard to tread, and difficult to cross."
On the sacred land of Vedic India, robed beings who carried pure hearts of compassion and gigantic wills to selflessly enrich humanity . They are the Sannyasis (monks) who called the world their home and walked door-to-door awakening people to the truth, while healing and blessing them . The whole of India has been built by Sannyasis . Whether it is architecture,art, science, culture or language, Sannyasis have contributed the best things to Vedic tradition.
His Divine Holiness Nithyananda Paramashivam's vision of a Vedic Hindu renaissance includes the revival of the sannyas (monastic) order . He is enriching today’s youth to live this ultimate path of completion and blissful renunciation .
"Awakening you to your highest possibility is Sannyas. After Adi Shankara, there was never an open, public invitation to become a Sannyasi in the Hindu tradition. Now, for the first time in the last 2500 years, I am going to systematically expand on all the different aspects and dimensions of Sannyas. Listen! I am opening the doors of Sannyas for all of you. We need at least a million Sannyasis, masters of the science of living enlightenment, who will go all around the world to live and teach this science to the world, and inspire others to live it!"
- H.H. Paramahamsa Nithyananda
