For millenia India has boasted of Mystics capable of performing miracles and exhibiting spiritual Siddhis or Shaktis – such as levitation, mind reading, seeing remote places, flying, materializing objects, living without food and water etc. We have copius documentation from the British and Mughal writers over the past few hundred years about people with such wondrous powers. Most of us, however, have dismissed these as trickery or cheating. Not in the least because of propaganda against Hinduism and because ofthe destruction of the Gurukul system which caused a slow loss of all the people who could demonstrate such amazing abilities.
Many individuals however, even in recent times, have demonstrated such extraordinary powers. Shakuntala Devi (1929-2013) was a math genius who could multiple two random 13 digit numbers in less than 30 seconds. Sri Prahlad Jani (1929 – ) from Ahmedabad demonstrated the ability to live without food or water. The sterling hospitals in Ahmedabad had kept him in a glass room for 15 days and confirmed that he did not take anything and yet there was no change in his weight or metabolism.
Sathya Sai Baba (1926 – 2011) of Puttaparthi has shown the amazing ability to materialize objects out of thin air and to give materialized Viboothi to his devotees. But these Yogis have always been one-offs and the anti Hindu media quickly discredits them for one reason or the other with false allegations or character assasinations. But all that is going to change.
This amazing mystic school in southern India, the Nithyananda Gurukul, is producing children by the hundreds who can perform many such feats with ease – and all done with scientific validation from organizations such as Shankar Netralaya and Nimhans etc.
For a while the children of the Gurukul have demonstrated the ability to read blindfolded as shown in the video below. This has been shown to people all around the world and scientifically validated. And now they are demonstrating the abilities of people like Shakuntala Devi to instantly perform large computation and powers of great Saints such as Sai Baba who could materialize Vibhuti and other objects with ease.
The Gurukul is run associated with the University http://sarvajnapeetha.org – which means the “All Knowing Seat of Knowledge”. The University was setup to revive all the ancient arts and mystic sciences including that of the mind – such as telepathy, teleportation etc, and matter – such as flying machines (vimanas), perennial batteries etc which are documented in our scriptures. They have embarked on a huge mission to collect, scan and publish all the palm leaves available in India now so that the little knowledge that is left can be preserved for posterity for research.
Soon, in the next 5 years, the Gurukul will expand to 50 thousand students. Imagine what 50 thousand students graduating every year with the knowledge of the Sasthras and that of western science and the ability to play with mystical powers will do for Sanatana Hindu Dharma?
This school is a game changer for Hinduism and India and gives us hope for the future.
