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

This is the seat of the Siddha Yoga Dham, a registered charitable institution whose spiritual head is Param Poojya (His Holiness) Swami Chetanananda Saraswati, who belongs to the ancient lineage of Siddha Gurus.

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.

The third stage of Kayakalpa is nothing but to reduce all 'Ras' filth of the body to get purified before leaving the body without any filth attached to it.
When mental condition remains free from any bondage of 'Maya' it will guide the individual to realise the approximate time for ending the body , if not earlier, at least six months in advance, as per the experiences of some realised souls of past.
Any way , there is no harm to perform the last stage of Kayakalpa after 70 years of age.
One month in advance, one has to select the bank of a river sangam and live there with least physical needs. First week, only little dry fruits are to be taken. Second week, take them to half. If one feels, he may take only some neem leaves and Bilwa leaves during third week.
In further week, nothing is to be taken except pure water for four days and in last three days not even water but only air is to be taken. Thereafter, surrender the pure body in the lap of 'Sangam' and fly to infinity to the eternal abode of 'Paramatma'.
