Spiritual Journey and his Masters

Ever since he was a child, Virendra (legal first name of Samarthguru Siddharth Aulia Ji) had a spiritual quest which was catalysed by a saint named ‘Janaki baba’ who loved Virendra like a father and who was gifted with ‘Yakshini siddhi’, which stirred young Virendra’s curiosity. That was little Virendra’s first tryst with spirituality. The seed that was sown in young Virendra during his childhood was working underneath, within him, which during the later years took him to several masters of different spiritual traditions.
The main masters who guided him in the quest were:
  1. Osho – Master of Masters: Just one book of Osho, ‘Krishna Meri Drishti Mein’, handed over to Virendra Kumar Singh, by one of his close friends, during one of his official trips, changed his ‘Drishti’ towards Osho. This was followed by an inner urge to take ‘sanyaas’ from Osho in Poona, and the outcome was a new beginning. Osho initiated him to Neo-sanyaas on 13th May 1980.And gradually thus, he metamorphosed from Virendra to Siddharth.
  2. Guru Nanak Dev ji: Guru Nanak Devji blessed him with Omkar Diksha on 13th January, 1997.
  3. Sufi Baba Shah Qalandar: Our Samarthguru got the precious guidance of Sufi Baba Shah Qalandar Pir of Giridih and later, before leaving his body, Sufi Baba conferred upon him the title and responsibilities of ‘Aulia.’

Some of the other masters pivotal in his spiritual journey were:

  1. Baba Bhajan Brahmachari
  2. Pilot Baba
  3. Deoraha Baba
  4. Tat Baba
  5. Tapaswini Mira puri
  6.  Aughar Bhagwan Ram

He was blessed with Enlightenment on the 5 of March 1997.

Under his guidance, Oshodhara established three Dhams (Ashrams) at Murthal in Haryana, Madhopur in Punjab and Karma in Bihar where Oshodhara courses are organized regularly. He developed 28 levels of Spiritual courses and 42 Wisdom courses under Oshodhara and through these courses, he is helping the seekers on the path of Enlightenment and beyond.
Thousands of seekers have joined Oshodhara and have attained the peak of Spirituality with Dhyan, Samadhi and Sumiran, leading to Satori, Self-realization, Enlightenment and journey beyond Enlightenment.

Samarthguru - The 'Aulia'

Samarthguru came in contact with the great saint of India - Sufi Baba Shah Qalandar of Giridih in 1980 and a deep bond of love formed between them. Such was the strength and intensity of their bond that Sufi Baba Shah Qalandar declared our Samarthguru as his successor and bestowed him with the title and responsibilities of 'Aulia', a highly esteemed position in the Sufi world, before he left his body. And thus, a divine and pivotal connection was established between our Samarthguru, Oshodhara and the Sufi world.
