If you want to pick up a glass in front of you, what do you do? You simply pick it up. Now if you could not move what then do you do? You simply ask someone close by to help you pick it up. Now let us present this thought experiment: if the glass was ethereal, i.e. it couldn’t be picked up, it was invisible and was not made of matter that is consistent with our own – i.e. your hand would go through it when you tried to touch it. What would you do then? You would ask beings who could touch the ethereal glass (perhaps beings in other higher dimensions) to pick it up. Or you would try to manipulate the matter in those other dimensions to grasp the glass.
Many non-Hindu Aaiyyanists have no understanding of the energies and dimensions that surround us. There is no point praying to Brahman, Siva, Vishnu etc… to pick up the glass as a Supreme Being such as Siva/Vishnu is in touch with the highest form of energy. Of course, Brahman (the One) is essentially looking at the bigger picture and deals with the all forms of energy (the lowest to the highest). One could, if one had the correct Yogic or Bhakti method speak to the higher beings, but this requires much effort and energy on our part. Also, as we ourselves are part of Brahman and are the Supreme Being ourselves – we could via Yogic techniques transcend this dimension and pass between all others to reach out and touch the glass.
Remember, higher level beings deal with higher level energies and lower level beings can interact with energies closer to our own. Thus if you want something done in this reality – e.g like getting more wealth or aiding your children in their exams – open the Talas and Lokas closer to this realm and invoke the entities or energies that pertain to our material world. Do not invoke Shiva or Murugan for you to have good luck in your exams or job, as this this would involve a powerful Loka with very high energy levels – the sort of energies needed to create planets, or new realms, or to make millions of people shift their mindset. You are essentially using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. This is why when people perform a Pooja (prayer) or meditate on the Supreme they do not achieve their worldly aim. They simply do not understand the nature of how the Universe works.
You need to ask the question. Who is the Supreme Being? Is it Brahman, is it Shiva, is it Vishnu or Devi? Is Ganesh the Supreme Being, and why not? He clearly is a God that exists outside of our plane of reality – but is perhaps closer to us than Brahman. Let me put it this way. Is it is easier to open a portal to Murugan than it is to open the many portals to Brahman. Both are difficult but linking with Murugan would be an easier task. Now would it be easier to link with a being in a Loka closer to our realm than to link with Aaiyyan/Murugan in his realm very far from our plane of existence and at a much higher energy levels than we can experience? I think you know the answer.
So, in summary, it is clearly easier to shift our consciousness into a realm with a slightly higher resonant energy than our own. In other words, it is very easy to open dimensions closer to our realm than ones that are further away. As you know there are lower life forms than us Humans and there are higher level life forms. There is low energy dimensions and high level ones. If you want to achieve something in our plane of reality, then use and manipulate the dimensions (lower and higher) closer to us. It you want to achieve something on a vast scale just to break the boundaries of reality and merge with a portion of the Supreme then apply your knowledge and speak to the higher level beings such as Shiva, Vishnu, Devi etc… If you want ultimate Oneness – then seek Brahman. If you want to pick up the glass in this reality then do it. If you want to pick up the glass in the higher level planes – then either use that higher level energies yourself, or ask the aid of beings that are in those realms.
Of course from a Dravidian Aaiyyanist standpoint – the nature of energy, meditation, knowledge (Jnana) and worship (Bhakti) are different for each individual – so the truth I reveal to you here may not be the path that you are attuned to. Some people find Oneness and ‘doing well in their exams’ by doing a Pooja to Shiva, Krishna, or Ganesh. While other people who pray and fast for success have no joy as they are not attuned to these methods. For some people, linking with the different energies as prescribed by Aaiyyanist Yoga and Dravidian Science is a very difficult task, than say daily worship – but I personally feel that the paths of Jnana are more certain as attunement requirements are less than being divinely linked to say Krishna or Devi.
In other words, it is easier for some people (such as Aaiyyanist Hindus) to study and do the work upfront to master the Aaiyyanist inscriptions and meditations, than it is to pray devotedly on the hope that you will become linked to the Higher being. And for others it is easier to worship and perform prayers, than to study the energy levels required to link with the Higher Gods and our Higher supreme being.
Also you must remember that, if you find yourself drawn to Aaiyyanism, it means that you were an Aaiyyanist in a previous life, whether on this planet or on another. So we, as Aaiyyanists are more linked spiritually to manipulating energies, meditating and studying than practising devotion. As Hindus we must find our own path and allow others to find theirs and be thankful if our paths cross at some points between our various energy levels: from the lowest to the highest ones occupied by the Outer and our Inner Divine Beings.

We all know that as Aaiyyanists we must strive for Oneness with all beings (not just between humans, but all beings throughout this varied and wondrous Universe). However, sometimes there is a primal need for separation, especially if the collective group of people turn away from Oneness and direct themselves to isolation and negativity. This is what has happened twice now in the space of a couple of years.
The first case of isolation (caused by the negativity of nationalism) was the Brexit vote in the UK – where the people of Britain voted to leave progressive Europe. The beautiful experiment of progressive Europe enshrined civil rights for individuals, workers, women, immigrants, gay, and transgender peoples. Instead, the people of the UK decided to move to a harsher and more negative plane of reality.
Let me be clear, the EU did have its problems, i.e. in accountability and democracy but it was genuinely trying to unite all peoples around Europe with the ideals of freedom of travel, freedom to work and a common shared value system emanating from the positive. The EU also welcomed and tried to save the millions of refugees caused by neo-conservative wars and famine. This is something to be applauded. However, the forces of negativity and darkness used this act of virtue and charity to turn the people against the very institutions that championed Oneness.
A similar thing has happened in the USA. The country was about to elect its first female president: Hillary Clinton; who has spent her whole life in the service of that Country. Someone, who has flaws like the rest of us but embraced oneness, rights for workers, immigrants, women, gay, transgender, poor people and the oppressed. There may be charges that she was a corporate politician, but not everyone is entirely perfect – and she was generally trying to make the world a better place and save us from the ravages of climate change, famine and war.
In a different Universe, with a Clinton Presidency and Britain voting in full favour of the EU – the steps to a harmonious world government was only a generation away. However, that has all changed now. In the USA we have a President that is fully saturated with negativity such that he wants to build a wall between a landmass that has been unified for millions of years. Europeans have only been in the Americas for a few hundred years. Dividing the continent on racial lines is (in my opinion) a great sin against the land and the unity of all peoples.
This negativity has resulted in poor families being separated, climate and pollution agreements being torn up and the rights of workers, women and minorities being crumpled. How we treat the weakest of a society is how a society can be judged. And we will be judged by the Universal Karmic law that surrounds everything.
So, what is the solution? Well it is simple. To fight negativity and isolation – we must separate from the negative. This may sound strange from a purist Aaiyyanist perspective, but it is an integral part of the Harita tradition. So, what do I mean by separating? Well… simply the most progressive and spiritually realised parts of this planet must split from the negative, and form their own world community.
In this regard I am suggesting that California, New York, Massachusetts and other progressive States in the USA must separate and form their own Union. These States have huge economies… greater than individual countries. In fact California has the 6th largest economy in the world, New York has the 11th largest economy in the world and Massachusetts has an economy larger than the powerhouse of Africa: Nigeria, with a fraction of the population. Similarly Scotland should now seek a progressive independence from insular England and form a powerful bond with her liberal cousins in Europe.
What I, as a Harita Aaiyyanist am suggesting is this: a rewrite of global governance, where the most progressive places on this planet separate out and form new alliances with like-minded souls. Imagine if all the progressive places on this planet joined forces and setup their own joint institutions. London, Mumbai, Chennai, Milan, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, Scotland, California, Western Europe and other progressive places on this planet. Imagine the spiritual dynamic this would create. Imagine the free travel of people, ideas, and love between these pillars of universal Oneness. With these harmonious centres linked together – all other places would eventually want to join us and share in our ideals. Thus… eventually the most intolerant places on the planet will be transformed over a period in time to the pure ideals of love and harmony.
So, we must in the short term separate out from negativity, in order for us to eventually join together in Oneness.
As an Aaiyyanist it is your duty to aid as many people as possible using your wisdom as an Aaiyyanist. When you first become an Aaiyyanist you should have been taught how to heal others, how to aid people spiritually, how to call on entities to guide you, how to project yourself to other realms and many other spiritual techniques – all using the Dravidian symbols that bring a specific Loka or Tala closer to our dimension.
When you first learn the techniques, it is like beginning to read or write. Only through practise can your spiritual power and resonant mind energy increase. So once you learn the techniques (say for healing), you must practise being a healer. Treat as many people as possible, and do it on a daily basis.By practising these spiritual techniques, you will become stronger and more resonantly aligned with the Lokas or Talas that you are trying to open, until eventually it will be second nature.
Most Aaiyyanists charge nothing for their service as (from the words of Guru Sivian) ‘they exist in the spiritual plane, not the material one’. We do however live in the material world, so we should not condemn others who do charge for their service as they may need support to feed their families.
Most traditional Aaiyyanists learn these ancient techniques from an early age and practise them daily so as to build their strength up. Now that the Aaiyyan World Foundation have opened its doors to non Aaiyyanists for the first time, we have noticed that many people are learning the techniques, but not putting their knowledge into practise.
You cannot learn how to walk by reading a book, you must walk, keep walking even if you stumble and fall – until eventually you will be able to run and climb the highest mountains. Similarly with Aaiyyanism. You can read the healing techniques, how to open various Lokas to aid people and bring them good fortune in wealth, love and spirituality etc… but unless you actually do it – you will have learnt nothing.
As Guru Savvaayaian said many centuries ago and has been repeated in various forms since: ‘Aaiyyanism is vocational, the more people we aid the better it is for both the Aaiyyanist and the person we aid. It is a Karmic duty that can help us break the Karmic cycle’.
So, how should you lead your life as an Aaiyyanist. Simply heal and aid everyone you meet. Not only will this help others but it will help you also. Once your power increases (and it will increase), you will find that people will start to seek you out until you will have so many requests for aid that you will not be able grant them all.
Many Aaiyyanists have very long waiting lists (some almost a year long). We know that there is a deluge of people out there looking for help. One of the initial reasons the Aaiyyan World Foundation opened its doors to outsiders (or to people who were Aaiyyanists in a previous life, but had somehow been born to a non Aaiyyanist background), was that the waiting list to be seen by existing Aaiyyanists was so long. There were many people who did not get the help they needed at the time when they needed it.
By teaching these techniques widely, we believe that many people can be helped, which in turn helps us and ultimately helps all of humanity.
I have had innumerable correspondences from many many people on what is the best path to take as an Aaiyyanist. I would say though, that this sort of thinking is misguided. In Aaiyyanism one is allowed (or even obliged) to study and research as many aspects of Brahman as is possible in this lifetime. In other words, to understand (even slightly) the vast diversity of Brahman’s path and knowledge one must study, experience and ultimately live a full and varied life.
One is allowed to work and have a family or live as a hermit for many years. Both are part of the will of Brahman. In fact I know many Aaiyyanists who live as a hermit, as a solitary monk, then form a family and have a wife/husband and children; but then later in life go back to a monastic life with a group of fellow Aaiyyanists until finally they become wondering Sannyasins. Both men and women follow this path as it is a natural path for the spiritually inclined.
I know of other Aaiyyanist men and women who build up their career, have a family and enjoy the wonders of deep community relations. Then after their responsibilities have diminished, then then become wandering teachers and healers for several years… before returning to their community and family to resume their familial duties before they pass onto the next life.
I have examples of fellow High Aaiyyanists (members of the inner chamber) who follow the pure path in terms of research and meditation, but experience the richness of Tantra in their personal life. There are practitioners of the Ayurvedic Aardra school who also practise the martial forms of SainikaH.
So, the question is: how do you live your life as an ideal Aaiyyanist? Firstly you must study, learn about Aaiyyanism, mainstream Hinduism, the many different paths of Hindu thought and philosophy. Learn about other faiths and belief systems. Dravidian Aaiyyanism is the highest form of Jnana Yoga – the path of knowledge, thus you must learn everything: philosophy, mathematics, poetry, music, dance, language. As you learn you must also allow life to guide you in your path.
Your subconscious mind knows (from its previous Karmic knowledge bank) what you need to do in this life. You will know it when you feel comfortable and relaxed in the path that you have taken, and you will intuitively know when to change that path when your subconscious mind talks to your conscious mind and shows you that you need to move onto the next path. This can be realised as simply as feeling bored or unfulfilled or unconformable – this is our subconscious mind telling us what we already know and have been programmed to do since we were born.
As all Dravidian Hindu Aaiyyanists know, that on death we (as Aaiyyanists) simply do not reincarnate directly into the next body (though most humans and other beings do). At the moment of death we have a choice. Many souls who are untrained rush quickly into the next life as they long for life so much. Other more experienced spiritual souls go to what Aaiyyanist traditionally call Micaiyyan (or heaven) where they can spend their time in bliss (for a short while or a very long time – relatively). But the true Aaiyyanists will know that in order to be closer to ‘The One’ we must pay our Karmic debt or break the Karmic cycle to truly advance our souls. For what are we here for, but to advance to the next level?
The Aaiyyanist can choose to be judged and Brahman, the Gods and the higher positive and negative entities of all Talas and Lokas discuss with you, your duties. Then you yourself will chose your next life and go back to the various material planets that exists in the Universe to repay your Karmic debt and learn the spiritual teachings of the Universe. That is why when you are reborn you are almost always meeting the same souls that you met in a previous life. This is because you have a spiritual Karmic link with others which you must address before you can truly become One again.
So, how do you lead your life? First study and experience many things, but remember the most important thing is to allow yourself to make those life decisions – as you actually know what to do, either subconsciously or consciously. Remember all experiences help us understand ‘The One’ and helps us become One by breaking the Karmic cycle.
Report by Madhuksara Devar – an Aaiyyanist woman living in New York
We know that the new Trump regime will build a wall to keep out people who are poor and persecuted. We know that this new regime will attack women’s rights and defund groups that protect women’s rights. We know that this regime will discriminate against people of other faiths and bar them from freely travelling. We know that this regime will protect oppressive state actions and throw many more poor people into prison. We know all this.
That is why we must oppose it.
All these things cost money and what better way to defend the poor and oppressed is to defund the oppressive government.
How does one defund the government? It can be done by voting with our dollars and not paying taxes. Now, I am talking about doing this legally, i.e. via the legal mechanisms that large progressive corporations can employ to avoid taxes such as using offshore accounts, tax havens, transfer pricing and other perfectly legitimate legal means.
Previously, large corporations were attacked for not paying taxes. Now, in this current climate they must be applauded.
It is the sacred and moral duty for all companies, corporations, individuals and collectives to pay as little money to “the oppressors” as is legally possible. This is our Karmic duty, for if we pay money to kick people out of their homes and split up poor families – then the Karmic debt will be on us.
Please spread the word.

Hindu Aaiyyanists worldwide know that it is time for the progressive parts of this planet to form a Universal World Government based on true spirituality and love. I am not talking about the fake spirituality permeating institutional organisations that preach about love and harmony, but support policies that are directly against the weak and poor. No, I am talking about true unconditional love that can only be perceived fully by spiritual adepts and formulated psychically by the true Hindu Aaiyyanist that has mastered the basic precepts of Dravidian Yoga.
We know that throughout the world various nations are pulling towards nationalism and intolerance. As Hindu Aaiyyanists, we know that fundamentally we are all One and thus any forms of division, whether by race, nationality or religion is simply nonsense. It is the ultimate expression of the ego and as thus only people who have base emotions and base thinking flock to such thoughts.
The logic of the petty nationalist defines them. Why do the intolerants want to build a wall to separate people and bar immigrants, even though they themselves are descendants of people who emigrated? It is because the hypocrisy of negative energy pervades their very being. They are Asuric (demonic) in nature or are allowing themselves to be controlled by these negative entities.
Only higher beings capable of ‘Universal Brahman thought’ are directed to the simple truth: that we are all one. There are many faiths and denominations (from all the major and minor religious) that are capable of true ‘Universal Brahman thought’ and we (as Aaiyyanists) should be able to recognise them all. But we should also be able to recognise the faiths that preach division and hate of others. We must pray and send positive love energy to these organisations so that they will begin to see the truth that ‘love of all’ defines us as human and as part of Brahman.
If the nation state becomes more intolerant and divisive, then as Aaiyyanists we must support groups that wish to break away from the nation and form their own collectives. In order to become one we must truly break all borders and boundaries and embrace oneness. Division only leads to fear and pain as has been the history of this world since the start of the Kali Yuga age.
In the ancient times there were no borders and no nations. People were free to travel and live as they pleased. In Hindu Aaiyyanist tradition we believe that in the far distant past before the ancient Aaiyyyanist Kingdoms were founded (over 100,000 years ago) our ancestor sailed from the West. The evidence for the links to our ancient African past is demonstrated by the worship of Murungu by our spiritual cousins in various East African tribes. This is just a tiny example of how we are in fact all One Universal being, whose God Consciousness departed from Africa and then settled in the ancient lands now known as Tamil Nadu. This migration of ‘The One’ has happened all over the world. We have one origin as humans and we all come and are still a part of Brahman. Anyone who says otherwise is either a fool or purposely wishes division to aid their negative masters.
Now let me be clear, negative beings such as Asura or Demons are also part of Brahman, thus the people who follow that path are also in direct contact (consciously or subconsciously) with these entities. We must love them all as part of Brahman, but as an Aatmaani Aaiyyanist I believe that we can create a better society by following a positive path of pure loving Aaiyyanism as espoused by Lord Murugan.
Please note: when we follow the negative path that leads to oppression, death and destruction, we must remember that this path is also a way to become One with Brahman. Many Tantric Aaiyyanists follow this path. As Aaiyyanists we should never condemn nor condone any actions by negative or positive beings. We must simply accept them as part of Brahman’s path. However, as a human who loves life, I prefer the positive path that builds societies up, will allow humanity to populate the stars and can unlock the wondrous potential of all humanity in oneness and love.
I will tell you how the Universe dances from a Hindu Aaiyyanist perspective. The Dravidian teachings of old have many descriptions on how the Universe was formed, and how and why it is interspersed with the primordial One: Brahman.
The ancient Guru sage Aaiyyani Jagadhguru Kanyakubja taught his disciples that the spiritual ether that permeates all matter both alive and inanimate is Brahman. But why would a perfect being choose to create and enter an environment that is imperfect?
Some scholars in the ancient Dravidian world treatised that Brahman as a whole is perfect. But inside Brahman: is our Universe and the multitude of dimensions that on the whole look imperfect, but from a distance are aligned in perfect harmony. Many ancient Aaiyyanists believed this. Just as the lake has many imperfections inside it; with weeds, fish, dirt, and stones… if you look at it from afar you will see the beauty and perfection. Without the stones, weeds, fish and dirt there would be no perfect beautiful lake. It is the imperfections that define the perfect.
However, Sage Kanyakubja thought differently. In some Hindu Aaiyyanist traditions, it is said that Brahman at a point in time of his choosing decided to create… and then become Brahma (and Vishnu/Siva). Brahma the creator then exists for 100 Brahma years after which there is a Mahapralaya (destruction and dissolution into One) – and all is absorbed back into Brahman.
A year of Brahma is consists of 360 Brahma day night cycles, or 720 Kalpas. One Kalpa is made up of 1000 Maha Yugas. One Maha Yuga is subdivided into 4 ages with a ratio of 4:3:2:1. The Ages or Yugas are Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dvapara Yuga and the Kali Yuga. In Hindu tradition the Kali Yuga Age is 432,000 years, so you can imagine how long 100 Brahma ages are (more than 300 trillion years).
But this is irrelevant. Sage Kanyakubja was more interested in why ‘Brahman at a point in time of his choosing decided to create.’ . Through divine revelation and meditation, Kanyakubja knew that Brahman wanted to create the imperfect, to find a greater perfection in Brahman, i.e. by allowing imperfection, a greater perfection can be realised. The purpose of Brahman is to improve the perfect.This can only be realised if one allows oneself to be truly free and meditate on a rhythm that uplifts us.
For Sage Kanyakubja realised that if you were Brahman and existed in his timeline – if you speed up this cycle of the Universe to a moment in Brahman’s reality, you will see that this whole cycle is a rhythm, composed of 4:3:2:1 in its centre building up to 1000, 720, and 100.
Or to put it another way, the Universal Rhythm is 100 moments long, broken up into 720 bars, with 1000 beats per bar, with a sub rhythm of 4:3:2:1. And from this Rhythm, Brahman is finding a way to perfect the perfection that we are all part of.
There are many different schools of Dravidian Hindu Aaiyyanist thought, but we are all united by our belief in Brahman and how his very being permeates throughout all of us and all Universes. Now the very term Dravidian Hindu Aaiyyanism is an English translation of our creed. One should really call it Dravidian Aaiyyanism as it is more ancient than the Northern Indus Valley tradition where the name ‘Hindu’ originates from. We are also not of the “Sanatana Dharma” either. The thoughts, ideas, scriptures and scripts of Dravidian Aaiyyanism are much more ancient than Sanskrit or even ancient Tamil (Tamil-Brahmi). It is the language that Brahman gave to Siva and Murugan in order for the ancient humans to communicate directly with Brahman. Each Aaiyyanist tradition has its own thoughts on how the transition of knowledge from Brahman to Siva and/or Murugan took place; suffice it to say that it did take place over 70-100,000 years ago.
Stepping back for one moment though and returning to the notion of names. As all true Dravidian Aaiyyanists know, even the names of Brahman, Siva and Murugan are not the true names of the beings we worship. There is no direct English translation, and we do not want to reduce the power of the names by giving a direct sound/linguistic equivalent. Most Aaiyyanists learn the true names at an early age as is the Dravidian oral tradition. All Aaiyyanists are bound as children, learning the mystical and truly powerful names of the Gods as spoken in their original language: Dravidian Aaiyyani. This is what binds us.
Remember Dravidian Aaiyyani is the only language that I know of where you need to meditate on a particular meaning while speaking the word in order to fully understand ‘The Truth’. The word and meaning maybe dissimilar, but as a whole may point to a new understanding.
Another habit that binds us is reading (or writing) the symbols to form a mental image while visualising something entirely different: e.g. as many Aaiyyanist children learn at an early age: writing the Daiyyannian Loka while actually seeing via the mind’s eye the Lokataliyyan (Siva-Murugan) construct. This paradox of language, speaking, writing, thinking and constructing visually is what binds all Aaiyyanists: from the Pacifist Schools of Parishaantaa to the Martial Schools of SainikaH, and the many other schools that seem diametrically opposite.
So what am I saying here? Well in summary, there are many many differences in the teachings of different schools of Aaiyyanist thought. But what binds us is our language, culture and understanding on the origins and endings of Brahman and his many aspects.
To be a Hindu Aaiyyanist one must simply believe that all beings are One with Brahman. When we mean all beings – we literally mean everything in this Universe and the multitude of Universes that surround us. We also mean everything in the multitude of dimensions that contain these innumerable Universes. What this means in practise is that we must love everyone unconditionally as One – even if they are our enemies, or even if they are considered to be evil entities. I know this sounds like a radical idea, but even negative entities like Asuras and Rakshasas are part of Brahman. They are just another expression of the truth.
Some Aaiyyanists are drawn to the path of positivity and truth, finding solace in meditation and research. Other Hindu Aaiyyanists strive for the Tantric path and attempt to find the bridge to Brahman by invoking and learning from negative entities. There is no right and wrong path in this life; all roads eventually lead to The One: Brahman.
So, my fellow Aaiyyanists may disagree on what is the best approach to find liberation. Some may find it through devotion, learning, immersing oneself in the Tantric Path or simply becoming a strict purist ascetic – we are all One and must remember that. However, fighting against each other is also ‘part of our oneness’, so the true Aaiyyanist like myself can neither judge, condemn nor condone any actions by anyone. In order to understand fully the life choices by our peers we must walk in their shoes and live their life. Only the trained Aaiyyanist can remember their past lives and can understand many fragments of the whole, but we still cannot comprehend someone’s actions in this timeline as we also exist in it.
Thus, the solution is to simply love everyone as One, as a subset and a part of Brahman. And by loving, comes understanding… and from that comes knowing and learning some sort of truth that you did not know existed… until you felt it from a stranger who thinks, acts and is spiritually dissimilar to yourself. That journey to the truth is the essence of Hindu Aaiyyanism.
