Sri Shivananda's Brahma Naadi Reading:

"Lord Brahma in the Naadi says that Sri Shivananda is an Avatar on this earth and He is the very beginning and the end too. He is the Light! Currently, Mother Earth is facing her darkest hours and that's why He has come to illuminate her. He has come to remove the darkness in people's lives and fill their voids with Light. He is the very source of Lord Shiva. It is His mission to eliminate the sufferings and miseries of the world and its people. He will be on the face of the planet during its encounter with Pralaya (total annihilation). After this period of destruction, the world will recognise Him as an Avatar or God and will acknowledge Him by being in His service. He too will serve the world reciprocally. Many spiritually elevated siddha purushas, enlightened beings and others will come and serve Him. He has descended on earth to protect and alleviate people and nature from destruction and chaos. Despite being the Lord Himself, He will be accompanied by his counterpart Shakthi or Parvathi in his journey on earth. Shiva and Shakthi cease to exist without each other. They are inseparable. Just like the transition from new moon to full moon, He has come to fill the darkness in this world with Light. He is the very origin of the primordial Kundalini Shakthi too. He would serve the world as a celibate, as a brahmachari. He has come to teach that- "All religions are essentially One".
