“Bhagawan Nityananda is the Avadhut and Supreme Guru of our lineage. He is equal to Lord Shiva. Bhagawan Nityananda was and is the perfect embodiment of the Supreme Principle. Everything that takes place in our offering is due to His Grace. Without His Grace, I would not be able to take a single step. He delivered me to Shivaji. Bhagawan Nityananda is without taint, without any blemish. He is spotless and this is why we take refuge in Him.” ~ Sadguru Kedar
This path has a rich spiritual heritage in the lineage of Siddhas, spiritually-perfected masters/teachers, of which Sadguru Kedar is a part. The line of direct succession includes many Siddha Masters of Meditation beginning with the Guru of the Siddhas, Lord Shiva. In the 20th century, our lineage was revealed by the great sage Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri. The line of Siddha Masters was continued by him and includes Paramahamsa Muktananda (who initiated Kedarji), Swami Janananda Baba, Tulsi Amma, Swami Sadananda, Shaligram Swami, among others. Kedarji served as a disciple in this lineage for 18 years and was then given the command to take refuge in Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri whose blessing he received to carry on this work.
