uttiṣṭhata jāgrata prāpya varān nibodhata |
kṣurasya dhārā niśitā duratyayā durgam pathas tat kavayo vadanti ||
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.
~ kathopaniṣad, 1.3.14
Awakening you to your highest possibility is Sanyas. The whole of India has been built by sanyasis – whether it is architecture, art, science, culture or language, Sanyasis have contributed the best things to Vedic tradition. Only Sanyasis only will be able to keep Sanatana Hindu Dharma alive, as they dedicate and sacrifice their life to this ideology, to this principle, to the Dharma.
On the sacred land of Vedic India, have walked countless powerful ochre-robed beings who carried pure hearts of compassion and gigantic wills to selflessly enrich humanity. They are the sanyasis (monks) who called the world their home, and walked door-to-door awakening people to the truth, while healing and blessing them.
After Adi Shankara,there was never an open, public invitation to become a Sanyasi in the Hindu tradition. Now, for the first time in the last 2500 years, Paramapujya Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda Swamiji is sounding the clarion call once again for sanyas on our planet. His vision of a Vedic Hindu renaissance for India includes the revival of the sanyas (monastic) order. He is enriching today’s youth to live this ultimate path of completion and blissful renunciation.Paramapujya Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda Swamiji has established the Nithyananda Sanyas Sampradaya (monastic order), which has rapidly drawn hundreds of educated young men and women who want to pursue their own spiritual growth and receive invaluable training directly from the Avatar, while also making a positive difference in the world. The Sanyasis of the Nithyananda Sanyas Sampradaya belong to Puri Sanyas Sampradaya (order) created by Lord Sadashiva, organized by Kapila Muni, and reorganized and revived by Sri Adi Shankaracharya, and are also part of the Mahanirvani Peetha Sanyas Sampradaya.
