“These are moments when the intense enlightened energies of the Sages, as consciousness, reach each of us in ease. My purpose is to be the joyful instrument that can uplift humanity to amazing possibilities of consciousness. Imagine a million Mahatma Gandhis, Rumis and Einsteins! This is a possibility in our times. We are the realities of this consciousness.” – Nandhiji
Nandhiji is a Siddha yogi, humanitarian & visionary awakening humanity through mystic wisdom, community and service. He is an artist, ecstatic chant musician, author and teacher- representing the path of the Liberated.
Nandhiji shares the life enhancing wisdom and teachings of the Siddha Sages, the liberated mystics of South India.
Nandhiji was gifted with a childhood experience of the Divine when he was four years old. Later as a young adult while leading an active life of family, he was initiated through a death experience by his first Guru, and his journey into the mystical realm of the Siddhas as a yogi began.
After years of seeking “wholeness” through connection with the inner world, Nandhiji woke up to understand his highest purpose: to uplift humanity in consciousness.
One of the fruits of his journey are offered in this book, “Mastery of Consciousness.” Nandhiji says, “When we awaken the inner Lamp, we liberate ourselves to the grace of our own wisdom, our Inner Guru, and we connect to the grace of an ancient lineage of Gurus. When awaken, we shine our unique genius, enabling us to be the Master in our heart’s calling. With Consciousness, we tap into the grace of yoga, called ‘Yogam’. Yogam means tapping into ever-present abundant and harmonious realities, knowing our highest purpose, being inspired, being in good health, and being like the Sun—whole and radiating!”
Nandhiji envisions a humanity awake through yogic wisdom, enterprise and community.

He took Nandhiji through the awakening death experience. Bhairava Sekarswamy set Nandhiji on the path of a yogi by kindling the inner fire of bliss and joy through this initiation.
This awakening to the inner fire led Nandhiji into the inner journeys of uncovering more and more of bliss as a yogi seeking the expanding consciousness. Bhairava Sekarswamy continues his own deep spiritual practice and several dharma works such as feeding the pilgrims every full moon night, taking care of animals, especially dogs among other activities.
Saddhu Krishnaveni Amma:
The lady saint who meditated for over 65 years in her cave in Kalyana Thirtham, South India. It is hard to imagine how this saint lived all by herself in a cave that is today a tiger sanctuary.
After years of daily rigorous meditative discipline, Nandhiji’s external realities, including the business Nandhiji had; his family; his home- everything simply dissolved away. When Nandhiji’s parents and friends became worried that Nandhiji would now leave the human external realities and go to the long solitudes of the caves, Saddhu Krishnaveni Amma took the reins over the spiritual guidance of Nandhi. She directed Nandhiji to the next chapter in his life- a life of a yogi householder. Saddhu Krishnaveni Amma left her body in 2011 April.
Siddha Guru Rajaswamy opened the mystical doors of Siddha tradition to Nandhiji just after Saddhu Krishnaveni Amma took Nandhiji into her fold. Siddha Guru Rajaswamy connects his ancient lineage of the Siddhas.
Siddha Rajaswamy is a living Master doing the work and being the intent of the Siddhars, the ancient mystic yogic pathways.
His powerful teaching is the constancy of his supreme services- re-igniting primal energies of ancient Siddha Temples, feeding hundreds of thousands, and being the custodian of Siddha grace prayers at Brahmarishi Hills.
he Brahmarishi Hills Daily Prayers and Yagna [Sacred Fire] are for uplifting humanity, all the living, and all universes.
His teaching: Attain the grace of all Masters as gifts of wisdom. Serve dharma and be the form of Dharma.

Amma, Mother Amritandamayi, (The Hugging Saint): Amma woke Nandhiji to a life purpose. When Nandhiji was a saddhu (a renunciate seeker) he had met Amma and told her of his childhood dream to saving the life old cows. Amma set Nandhiji back into the human realities with the knowing of his purpose, with a simple but incredibly power-packed directive blessing: “Just do it!” Amma's blessings is power of Consciousness.
Almost immediately after, Nandhiji saw realities that brought him Los Angeles, California to work on his life dream and vision that unfolds now, as in the Declaration of Consciousness Movement / Ariven Vision / World Yogi Day Mahashivratri
Amma's teaching: Be the instrument of God. Be guided. May all beings everywhere
be happy and peaceful. Hug of Oneness!

Siddha Guru Ayya Narayana:
Guru Ayya is the Siddhar Sage who meditated for 18 years atop the sacred mountain of Thiruvannamalai, drinking just a cup of milk each day and not moving while sitting in one single position. Ayya descended the mountain and miraculously held seclusive continued meditation for the next 6 years in his village. He attained Mahasamadhi . Ayya remains expanding His light through His mantra, through each as breath.
Guru Ayya's mantra Arakara is the resonance of instant manifestation. So what will be seek to manifest? Should God appear before us, what can we ask God for? Seek God & Be. Light your Lamp. Awaken the inner fires so each breath be of Source. Manifest the grandest of realities with gifts of Consciousness.
