The word Aghor literally means, that which is not difficult
or terrible. Aghor, Aughad, Kapalik, Aghori, Aughar,
Avadhoot mean the same. They indicate one which is simple
and natural state of consciousness. Spiritually does not
require any special knowledge, faith, worship or ritual. All
it requires is inspiration, determination and perseverance
and patience. There is no place for feelings of fear,
hatred, disgust or discrimination in the eyes of an Aghor.
Aghor with constant practice when the soul is established in
that state, such a person becomes an Avadhoot regardless of
his path. An Aghoreshwar is an Avadhoot who has gone through
all the various stages of Aghor and they have returned to
the society for the benefit of others. Even though an
Aghoreshwar remains above and beyond all social and material
illusions, distinctions, and categories, he can bring many
social reforms into effect.
divine nature, retaining the carefree, unattached. Aghor
state of being, he may have at the same time the appearance
of one observing the contemporary social norm rather than a
recluse. The term Aghor goes back to the farthest reaches of
time. One of the five faces of Shiva (Pashupati) was known
as Aghor. The word is as oldest legends, there is a hymn to
the glory of SHIVA PURANA one of HINDU`S oldest legends,
there is a hymn to the glory of Shiva by Pushpadanta, head
of the Gandharvas, called the SHIVA MAHIMA STOTRAM. One of
its verses is “AGHORANNA PARO MANTRA NASTI TAT TWAM GURO
The very name of
Aghor is a mantra that is above all other mantras. There is
nothing higher to be known than the real nature of the Aghor
Guru. This was lord Dattatreya. Many other saints and
mahatmas who embodied this Aghor state arose at their
destined times in history, while at other time the Lineage
became to be communicated in Guru-Disciple relationships.
They lived alone, in seclusion. They lived in the caves in
mountains. For some, their search to be alone drew them to
cremation grounds where people go for a little time only.
How ever a Aghor Sanyasi , Aughad , Avadhoot is under no
such limitation. He does dismantle such boundaries. Take the
Lord Buddha who also did Aghor Sadhana. He set up a new
order suited to those time climate. He spoke with crystal
clarity. Just as we need a modern physician and a modern
ruler, we need modern Aghor saints and Aghor Gurus who
prescribe what is relevant to the time.
It is their
prescription that will work. Such men are born in every age,
in every society, in every religion. They know no
boundaries, no limitations. They wear no threads, observe no
rituals. They are neither attached, nor limitations. They
are beyond purity and impurity. The timeless lineage of
Aghor Siddhas in Nepal and India has been flowing like the
Ganges of wisdom from time immemorial. Pashupati Area
(Kathmandu) and Kashi is known as the City of Shiva. This
lineage of the Aghor Siddhas of Kashi has emanated from Lord
Shiva himself. This lineage has produced unparalleled
spiritual giants at various times. In Nepal Aghoracharya was
the first known Siddha at the time of Aghor Bhairavacharya
in kasha (5th-6th centuries).
Aghoracharya Baba Kinaram
lineage had continued in a sleepy state, as if
embers under ashes. In the 16th century Baba Kinaram
after receiving darshan with Guru Dattatreya in
Girnar mountains, awakened it for the welfare of the
humanity at large – embers hidden under the ashes
began to glow again. In the presence of Baba Kinaram
spontaneous relief was received by the suffering,
answers to questions came automatically, and mind
experienced calmness naturally. One would experience
the higher Self merely by being in his presence.
traveled far and wide in all the four corners of
India & witnessing the suffering of people, engaged
himself whole - heartedly in
alleviating their suffering. Finally on the bank of
the river Ganges in Varanasi, he established his
dhuni (sacred fire) and continued his sadhana of
akhand dhuni (continues burning fire ) of Baba
Kinaram fed by the leftover wood from the near by
cremation grounds, and the samadhis (tombs) of all
the siddhas of the lineage in the same compound, are
witness to the continuum of this intact lineage of
Aghor Siddhas. Today, this yoga -bhumi (land of
sadhana ) of Aghor Siddhas of Kashi (Varanasi) is
called Kring Kund where we could get the blessings
of Maharaj Shree Kinaram babajee’s Samadahi.
Aghoreshwar Bhawan Ramji
In the 19th century one of the greatest souls took
birth in this “Aghor Guru-Disciple” tradition. He
was Aghoreshwar Bhagwan RamJee, who was born on
September 21, 1937, in Gundi village of Bhojpur
district of Bihar. He was born in a zamindar's
(landlord's) family. Aghoreshwar was the only child
of his parents -- mother Lakhraji Devi and father
Baijnath Singh. Before his birth, the mother had a
dream that the child she is going to give birth
would not be an ordinary person. After the
completion of the nine months period he was born and
as soon as he touched the earth he sat on his aasan
and breathed fire from his mouth, chamaran ( the
lady helper) ran away shouting that a demon has
taken birth. At the same time his Grandma said, he
must be the god and not the demon so his father
named him `Bhagwan' (God). Instead of going to
school he used to gather children and perform
prayers in village and he installed a 'Shivalinga'
in it and started worshipping.
For the first time perhaps, spiritualism has been
made applicable for the common men of the society in
such a lucid way. The views may appear different
from the orthodox ones, but they are significant,
refreshing and enlightening to all. Aghor tradition
in the simplest form is introduced to the society
for the welfare of the human beings. There is no
caste and creed in the Ashrams based on the
'Aghor Diksha'(initiation) from Baba Rajeshwar Ram
Jee (the 11th successor of Maharaj Shri Kinaramjee)
at an early age. Baba spent many years in sadhana.
He wandered as a sadhu from place to place, he
undertook various practices until his self
realization while still in his early teens. After
that time he turned his attention towards the
society, particularly towards the poor and the
suffering who sought him out wherever he went.
true reformist, Aghoreshwar brought changes in the
Aghori practices in tune with the modern times. He
always challenged the myths and pomp and show
associated with current religious and social customs
and practices. "The Shastras (holy texts) have
brainwashed you. Ignore them," Aghoreshwar would
preach time and again.
ashrams founded by Aghoreshwar are not a burden to
the society. The devotees labour themselves.He
established three institutions Baba Bhagwan Ram
Trust Shri Sarveshwari Samooh and Aghor Parishad
Trust.He amalgamated Aghor sadhana with human
service.After rendering life long service to the
destitute, depressed and the exploited people and
Lepers, Aghoreshwar Bhagwan Ram Jee took Maha-Nirvan
on November 29, 1992 in Manhattan, New York, U S
A.Inspired by the teachings of Aghoreshwar, today
there are many Ashrams and organizations through out
India and some in other countries .
