Childhood[ edit ] Shri Shivabalayogi Maharaj was born Sathyaraju Allaka on January 24, , in the small village of Adivarapupeta in the rice paddy country of the Godavari River delta in the state of Andhra Pradesh , India. They were among the poorest in the village. In contrast to his normally outgoing nature, he became withdrawn and introverted.
As Shivabalayogi described the incident, he was squeezing the fruit when his body began to tremble with vibrations; a bright light emanated from the fruit in his hands, and he heard the cosmic sound of Aum. The lingam broke in two and a tall, handsome man emerged standing in front of the boy.
His dark skin appeared smeared with light ash. He wore a white cloth dhoti wrapped around his waist, a necklace of rudraksha beads, and his matted hair piled on top of his head, all in the manner of the yogis of ancient times. A bright light emanated from him, and all Sathyaraju could see was the yogi and the divine light. Sathyaraju immediately passed into samadhi. They thought he was acting. But when they were unable to rouse him from this state, they were afraid Sathyaraju was either possessed by a spirit or dead.
When he regained partial outer consciousness, he returned to where he had been initiated. Many of the villagers believed he was acting, probably to earn fame as a holy man sadhu and make money. Some abused the boy, hitting him, pouring sugar water over his body so ants would bite him, and even throwing a burning, gasoline-soaked rag on him. Each midnight he would return to ordinary consciousness and would then feel the pain that his body was suffering.
For eight years, the Balayogi meditated twenty-three hours every day. Tapas begins when you get into the state of samadhi. One has to do a minimum of twelve hours of tapas a day When this samadhi stays for an extended period, something like twenty-four hours a day, then God will come down and awaken you.
Using a microphone and amplifier, the young yogi spoke to the crowd and that first public message was broadcast over radio, then printed and circulated on flyers. In his message, he emphasized the importance of proceeding directly to the goal of spirituality, the supreme peace of Self-realization, and eschewing the temptations and intermediate visions along the way which create more ego and may be nothing but hallucinations of the mind.
From to , he traveled to the U. He taught in silence through the power of his mere presence. On one occasion, Shivabalayogi encapsulated his entire teaching in a simple phrase, "Do sadhana.
His message was often summarized with the following words: Do not believe what others say and become a slave to religious prejudices. Meditation is your religion. Meditation is your purpose.
Meditation is your path. On one occasion, he advised Srinivasa Dikshitar "If you surrender mentally to your Guru through service, then automatically your mind gets controlled. But sadhana can happen through dhyana meditation , through bhakti devotion and through seva service and in so many ways when one is able to surrender to the Guru.
Sit, closing the eyes. Concentrate the mind and sight in between eyebrows. Do not move your eyeballs or eyelids. Keep watching there by focusing the attention. Do not repeat any mantra or name. Do not imagine anything. Do not open eyes until the duration of meditation is over. He also referred to his use of a Mantra of the sun.
The idea was that the whole process would happen spontaneously in the presence of the Guru, and with his blessing. He describes how the crowning accomplishment at the end of tapas was the vision and realisation of the divine form. Spiritual philosophy: The pure consciousness of the Self Cit-Akasha, the space of Consciousness is the only reality, eternal, all-pervading and existing in itself. To escape illusion and experience this One reality, the mind must be brought into a state of perfect control and freedom from distracting thoughts samadhi.
All that remains is the experience of Supreme Peace, with the potency of all creation. Swamiji described it as follows: I saw all the things happening: Suddenly I realized that my attention was on 'That' which was making it happen. Then the attention settled on 'That' which was watching. Boundless Supreme Peace was there.
Amazing happiness was there. It was so 'tasty' that one wouldn't ever want to be away from that. Swamiji taught that the purpose of life is to attain Self-realization, by performing sadhana spiritual practice and overcoming the illusions and imaginations of the mind.
He also taught that meditation can be used to relieve tension and live a peaceful and stress-free life in the world. Bhava samadhi. Blessed ash. Spiritual music. Divine ecstasy. Singing songs of devotion to God is an expression of the path of devotion bhakti. Swamiji once said, "Yogi is love.
Through this practice they lose the individual ego and gain a larger consciousness. The mind's attachment and devotion is the true bhava. However, he was intolerant of any public criticism or interference with devotees' bhava experiences. Then meditation itself becomes much easier and consequently one would take up meditation more willingly. But one should not settle just for the chocolate — one must go on to school.
In the same way, one must meditate. To some devotees he would say: If God can be won over by devotion, rest assured that anything can be won by devotion.
You have to come from devotion to practice meditation. Only then will you get Self realization. You should begin meditation with devotion. Chanting and bhajans are for devotion.
They are the start for the spiritual path. Just like you go for the first class in primary school. Prayer, bhajans , homa , japa and all these things help you develop further and further on the spiritual path. Gradually they will bring you into the line of meditation. Giving prasadam blessed food was also very important for him, and devotees often arranged for mass feedings of thousands of people. Shri Swamiji once explained the importance of mass feedings as follows: But when the food is offered to God it becomes prasadam.
Spiritual Teachings of Sri Sivabala Yogi. Throughout this time he worked tirelessly to inspire people on the spiritual path. Shivabalayogi often told devotees that yogis do not "die" in the ordinary sense. They drop their physical bodies through mahasamadhi the great samadhi , but their presence remains available. That tomb is now the Adivarapupeta samadhi. The first ashram is in Adivarapupeta, his native village where he completed twelve years of tapas.
In , when Shivabalayogi began traveling in India, a small ashram was established for him in Doddaballapura , a small town north of Bangalore , then the following year in Bangalore on Bannerghatta Road.
On August 7, , he established a new ashram in Bangalore at J. Nagar, where he later consecrated a temple in honor of the three divine manifestations of God: According to one Indian tradition, the worship of Brahma is forbidden, yet Shivabalayogi insisted upon consecrating a deity of the god, thus encouraging people to go beyond blind faith and superstition and to teach that the Divine is only one, but with many names and forms.
After his death, additional trusts and ashrams have been established in India, the United States, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Australia. Palotas, Tapas Shakti pp. Thomas L.
