THE GREATNESS OF HUMAN LIFE
"Man, who becomes Super-Man by realizing his Supreme Self through Divine Grace, is the best replica of God, the Almighty, in His blessed creation. He is the highest in the order of evolution of living beings because of his emotional, intellectual, intuitional and verbal powers of feeling, thinking, cognizing and expressing genius of extraordinary type.
By developing these exceptional powers scientifically, man contemplates to control the whole universe and become the greatest power in the whole world. Though he has succeeded to a great extent in this mad adventure, he has utterly failed in his main purpose of becoming more happy and secure. So, he cannot claim real greatness in the world as he has neither achieved real and enduring happiness, nor overcome grief or misery.
Having known the ephemeral nature of the world through acute discrimination, he who leads a pure life of dispassion and spiritual discipline of serving a real Guru, and gets absorbed in his own Real Nature, is truly the blessed and liberated person, who is also the happiest and the greatest in the world"
- Bhagwan Nityananda

Siddhaloka has undertaken Sacred forest project under the able guidance of His Holiness Swami Chetanananda Saraswati. The goal is to restore around 500 acres of wastelands in Magadi Taluk over a period of 5 years, in a phased manner, which would meet the various needs of the people. This ecological restoration will be taken up along the principles of watershed development. Soil and water conservation as well as the livelihoods of communities in the area are the main focus of the programme.

Tradition only belongs to animals,plants etc. There can be no tradition for mankind as they have power of faculty to learn, develop and progress. By birth, a son of an Engineer can not become an Engineer unless he learns. Therefore, where ever there are cultural teachers, preachers, there can be no tradition but History.
