Nandhiji is a mystic, yogi, visionary, humanitarian, artist, ecstatic chant musician, author, and teacher.
Nandhiji represents the path of the Liberated. Nandhiji shares the rare wisdom and teachings of the seldom-revealed source of yogic wisdom of the Siddha Sages, the liberated mystics of South India.
Nandhiji was gifted with a childhood experience of the Divine when he was four years old. Later as a young adult while leading an active life of family, he was initiated through a death experience by his first Guru, and his journey into the mystical realm of the Siddhars as a yogi began.
After years of seeking “wholeness” through connection with the inner world, Nandhiji woke up to understand his highest purpose: to uplift humanity in consciousness. Nandhiji’s experiences ranged during these times from firm yogic resolve in undertaking pilgrimages to sacred temples and hidden sanctuaries across India, to epic adventures in the spiritual wilderness of South India, to sojourns in forest shrines and caves—all under the guidance his Gurus, and through yoga, worship, meditation and solitude, to attain the wholeness to know his purpose and serve in the doings.

10000 Hour Rule and Grace of timelessness.
The 10,000 Hour Rule —the principle holds that 10,000 hours of "deliberate practice" are needed to become world-class in any field. For the yogi, this is Guru’s grace that condenses the timelessness of mastery into time.
"On the path seeking my wholeness as a yogi was grace. Grace of my Gurus condensed timelessness to time. My Gurus gave me a part of themselves through the mantra deeksha (the lighting of the mantra fires within me). Guru Ayya would often say, “Take me and my presence along with my Gurus through my mantras. My mantras are all you need. Light your Lamp and know your own truth within you as your inner Lamp. When light your Lamp reciting my mantras to invoke me, I am with you!”.
Siddha Guru Rajaswamy would mention, “When you see a Siddha Guru, just receive his mantra blessings and then digest the light of the mantra. Do not go and bother that Siddha Guru again as for him it is disturbance.”
In years of my journey within through caves, shrines and the spiritual wilderness of South India with my Gurus and under guidance, I realized my evolution was not only dynamic and swift but also, more efficient. For instance, being awake meant more of consciousness to better quality of thought to enhance the experience to attain more of consciousness- a cycling of efficiency. It was like learning to run and then fly and with time, glide. To wake up as Spirit (also called satori) is the first of grace. To attain the Guru to guide and expand consciousness is the grace of wisdom. To awaken the inner fires, the Guru within, is empowerment. To realize life purpose and be the inspired yogi working for humanity is blessings to be the Angel creating heavens." - Nandhiji
