AND KRIYA YOGA
In the realm of spirituality, Masters (Gurus) are essential to help you attain a level of mastery beyond your own capacity. True Masters are able to transmit their level of mastery to others at will.
A spiritual lineage (parampara) is an unbroken line of Masters whose teachings and traditions have been faithfully passed on from teacher to student over time. It is through a lineage that the purity and potency of wisdom and techniques remains intact.
Often an initiation is done to pass on the Grace and blessings of the Guru and to formally recognise one’s entry into the lineage. Paramahamsa Vishwananda carries the Grace of three lineages.
Born as a Brahmin, Paramahamsa Vishwananda belongs to the Bharadwaja Gotra. This is a renowned family lineage that can be traced back to the Guru of both the Pandavas and the Kauravas during Krishna’s time and the Mahabharata War.
Through the Grace of Paramahamsa Vishwananda, all those who take brahmachari initiation from Him, or one of His Swamis, are also initiated into the Bharadwaja Gotra Lineage.
Mahavatar Babaji is the Father of all Kriya Yoga traditions, and Paramahamsa Vishwananda is His direct disciple. Through their Grace, Atma Kriya Yoga has been given specifically for today’s world, and is Bhakti Marga’s principle meditative and yogic sadhana (spiritual practice).
The Grace of all Kriya Masters is passed on to Atma Kriya Yogis who receive the Shaktipat Initiation (transmission of spiritual energy) after their formal Atma Kriya Yoga training.
Paramahamsa Vishwananda was initiated as Vaishnava Acharya into the Sri Sampradaya formalised by Sri Ramanuja Acharya. The Sri Sampradaya’s core beliefs and practices are foundational in Bhakti Marga’s philosophy and worship practices.
Those who take initiation into the Bhakti Marga Spiritual Order are automatically initiated into the Sri Sampradaya as well. In this way, they will also receive the Grace of the lineage.
GRACE OF THE MASTERS
Om Namo Narayanaya is the main mantra of Sri Vaishnavism and Bhakti Marga. This once secret mantra was originally made available to the world through the Grace of Ramanuja Acharya.
Paramahamsa Vishwananda offers initiation into this mantra through the Bhakti Marga Spiritual Order and Atma Kriya Yoga. Initiation gives the Grace to attain God-realisation when the mantra is lovingly practised with bhakti. He also shares this mantra through a free practice called Project Mantra.
