July 13, 2022 marks the auspicious celebration of Guru Purnima along with the Global Peace Conclave and KAILASA® Om Awards Ceremony

    LOS ANGELES, CA, July 15, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- With the grace and blessings of The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism (SPH) Nithyananda Paramashivam, SHRIKAILASA's Department of Religion and Worship and the SHRIKAILASA Uniting Nations (SKUN) for Global Peace and Religious Harmony hosted the Virtual Global Peace Conclave and the KAILASA Om Award Ceremony on the auspicious occasion of Guru Purnima Day.

Guru Purnima Day is a day to celebrate the happening of the Guru in our lives. It is a day when disciples offer gifts of gratitude to the Guru and, in return, the Guru liberates them from negative patterns that are blocking their success. For this reason, Guru Purnima is key to achieving higher states of consciousness since lifetimes of negative patterns are dissolved by the Guru.

The word Guru is the combination of two Sanskrit words – "Gu" meaning darkness and "Ru" meaning light. A Guru is a spiritual teacher, guide or enlightened master who leads disciples from darkness to light. A fundamental aspect of Hinduism is the Guru-Disciple relationship. The Guru is said to be more important than God. God is always and everywhere, but it is the Guru who opens the Disciple's eyes to the existence of God. The Guru is the doorway to one's own experience of the Divine.

गुकारस्त्वन्धकारश्च रुकारस्तेज उच्यते।
अज्ञानग्रासकं ब्रह्म गुरुरेव न संशयः॥२३॥
gukārastvandhakāraśca rukārasteja ucyate।
ajñānagrāsakaṃ brahma gurureva na saṃśayaḥ॥23॥

The syllable gu is darkness, and the syllable ru is said to be light. There is no doubt that the Guru is indeed the supreme knowledge that swallows the darkness of ignorance.

- Guru Gita verse 23

Hinduism reveres the Guru as a direct manifestation (Avatar) of Paramashiva – the Ultimate Supreme Being. When an Avatar descends as Guru, not only does He lead us to enlightenment, He creates a breakthrough in all of humanity, taking them to a whole new level of superconsciousness and manifesting superhuman powers as a side effect.

The Sovereign of the Sovereign State of SHRIKAILASA, The SPH Nithyananda Paramashivam is the reviver of Hinduism and SHRIKAILASA®, the Ancient Enlightened Hindu Civilizational Nation, the First Nation of Hindus. SHRIKAILASA (or KAILASA®) has been working ardently using the science of enlightenment based in Hinduism to support humanity for global peace (ahimsa), gender equality, fight against global warming, universal free access to holistic education and healthcare, and veganism as per Hinduism.

At the young age of 3, The SPH was already recognized as an Incarnation of Paramashiva by His predecessors of Masters and Adepts. At just the age of 16, The SPH was coronated to revive SHRIKAILASA, the only First Nation for Hindus. And in 2015 He was elected as the Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism of the 2-billion Hindu diaspora worldwide by a congregation of over 1000 Hindu leaders (Pontiffs).

On this day we offer our heartfelt gratitude to The SPH, the Guru for millions, for his guidance on our spiritual journey and for his tireless work towards global peace and the revival of KAILASA - the most ancient, most peaceful, still-living and long lasting demonstrable system that shows the possibility of peaceful co-existence amongst people despite fundamental differences in their preferences and realities.
