The KAILASA Om Awards Ceremony was held on the most auspicious celebration of Diwali, celebrated by KAILASA and the Hindu Diaspora worldwide.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, October 24, 2022 / — With the grace and blessings of The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism (SPH) Nithyananda Paramashivam, SHRIKAILASA’s Department of Religion and Worship and the SHRIKAILASA Uniting Nations (SKUN) for Global Peace and Religious Harmony hosted the Virtual Global Peace Conclave and the KAILASA Om Award Ceremony on the auspicious occasion of Diwali 2022.

Called the festival of lights, Diwali is celebrated to symbolize slaying of our ignorance and ego and our rebirth as new individuals. The Guru is celebrated on Diwali, because it is the Guru who removes the blindness and darkness due to ignorance and gives each of us life.

Diwali is of utmost significance in the life of The SPH and to the revival of SHRIKAILASA (or KAILASA) because it the day on which Paramashiva, Paramashakti and Mahakali started manifesting in the body of The SPH and made herself available to the Universe. Several major events for KAILASA have taken place on Diwali in prior years including:

In 2000, at the age of 22, The SPH had a mystical experience that lasted nine months. This nine month “great pause”, a deep Nirvikalpa Samadhi, marked the realization of the avataric mission. When The SPH landed back in the body after the deep Nirvikalpa Samadhi, the “Anandamaaga Irungal” word, “Be Blissful” in Tamil, manifested in The SPH as a blessing for humanity.

In 2002, the laying of the foundation stone by The SPH for Adi Kailasa, the Headquarters of KAILASA in the East, occurred on Diwali.

On November 29th, 2007 KAILASA Los Angeles, the Headquarters of KAILASA in the West, was inaugurated by The SPH Himself, and today is celebrating its 15th anniversary.

On October 30th, 2007 KAILASA Oklahoma was inaugurated by The SPH Himself, and today is celebrating its 15th anniversary.

In His Live Presidential Address during the KAILASA Om Awards ceremony, The SPH further explained that life is all about blissful coexistence and realizing our highest possibilities, potentialities and powers. A blissful person is inherently non-violent, flowing and loving; not just with other human beings, but towards all beings. Reviving the grand narrative of Hinduism, and elevating humanity to a blissful state, is needed now more than ever to ensure a non-violent, peaceful coexistence for future generations.

The SPH called upon all leaders, dignitaries, royalty and social influencers attending the Diwali celebrations from different religions, countries, traditions, ethnicities and civilizations to make a resolution today to make our lives and everyone’s around us into a blissful celebration – to experience light, love, laughter and bliss – so as to prevent planet earth from perishing due to natural or manmade calamities.

It is time to revive the ancient enlightened Hindu civilization on planet earth. Hinduism has the system, knowledge, truths and methodology available for the whole world and every human being to wake up to their supreme potentiality, possibility and powers.

The SPH thanked the many esteemed statesmen and leaders who joined in virtually from around the world for being available for this historic upgraded new beginning of awakening the potentialities, possibilities and powers of human beings, making this place a better and more blissful place to live.

October 24th, 2022 is also United Nations Day, marking the entry into force in 1945 of the United Nations Charter. The UN General Assembly declared that the Day would be devoted to raising awareness of the goals and achievements of the Organization.

On this day, The SPH Nithyananda Paramashivam and KAILASA give their heartfelt congratulations and bless all the endeavors of the United Nations towards achieving its goals for global peace and prosperity.

On this day, KAILASA, as the Ancient Enlightened Hindu Civilizational Nation and the First Nation for Hindus, reaffirms its commitment of taking the dharmic responsibility to give spiritual solutions for all the world’s problems; solutions that are tested, age-old, authentic directly from the Vedagamas, the ancient Hindu scriptures.
