Universal Peace Foundation

Jagathguru Maha Maharishi Paranjothiar, affectionately called as Gurumahan, was born to Thiru. Krishnamoorthy and Smt.Lakshmy Ammal on 11-02-1955 at Bhavani, (where the rivers Bhavani, Kaveri and Amutha confluence) in Erode District, Tamil Nadu, India. Since he was born after much penance, his parents named him as Dhavamani, later he was called Jayamani.

At the age of seven, he had out of body experience witnessing his soul being separated from his body, a peculiar and uncommon experience for a boy of his age. So he kept quiet, and determined to pursue the quest himself.

His formal schooling ended at the Pre University level. He was then working at the Chikkaiah Naicker College, Erode where he completed his study. Yet he was always persistent on his spiritual path.

His youth was spent learning yoga and visiting various holy places as well as perusing holy scripts in the search for the truth.

Spiritual Entry

At the age of nineteen he obtained initiation into “Kundalini Yoga” meditation through Meignanaguru. Manickam, Karur. It caused him to ask a lot of questions. So he decided to take Gurumahan to Thiruvalanchuzhi, a remote village in Tanjore District, Tamil Nadu, to meet His Holiness JagatMahaguru‘ Gnanavallal’ Paranjthi Mahan, the Founder of Universal Peace Sanctuary to get answers to all his questions.
When he entered Mahan’s presence, he heard Mahan say, “Come my son, you are the one I have been waiting for. I knew you would come!”

Entry into Grahasthashramamn (Family life)

Although Gurumahan was keen to lead a yogic life of brahmachari,(celibacy), GnanavallalParanjothi Mahan persuaded him for the family life explaining that it won’t divert him in any way from his spiritual path. As per his Holy Blessings Gurumahan got married at the age of twenty five to Mahalakshmi, the eldest daughter of his own sister.

He asked his wife Mahalakshmi whether she would like to have child or be mother to the whole world, and she left it up to his wish, so they have no children, by choice.

Spiritual Advancement

His Holiness Paranjothi Mahan attained Maha Samadhi on 7th January, 1981 and thereafter Gurumahan devoted to his Spiritual Master Gnanavallal Paranjothi Mahan all his life to carry his Master’s spiritual message and practice throughout the world.

To accelerate the noble vision and mission, Gurumahan founded ‘JagatMahaguruGnanavallalParanjothi Mahan UNIVERSAL PEACE FOUNDATION’ as a Trust having its spiritual abode at the foot hills of Thirumurthi Hills, (100 Kms from Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, India) historically called as ‘South Kailash’ the homestead of Athri Maharishi and his wife Anushuya Devi, parents of Dhatatreya. The place is known for its historical reputation of being a living place of many Maharishis and Dhava yogis. It is the most desired place for studies in meditation and herbal medicine.
