For three decades Shri Shivabalayogi travelled extensively in India and Sri Lanka, initiating hundreds of thousands of people into meditation. From 1987 to 1991, He travelled to England and the United States. Though He remained silent during public programmes, Shri Shivabalayogi taught His disciple Seenu (the future Shri Shivarudra Balayogi Maharaj) through profound aphorisms, stories and in many other ways. His primary teaching was an ancient and universal method of meditation, without name or form, which is known as Jangama Dhyana (meditation on the Eternal Existence of the Self). He initiated in a unique way as a friend, without discrimination or charge. When devotees inquired about His spiritual philosophy Shri Shivabalayogi referred them to the Yoga Vasistha. The Yoga Vasistha is a dialogue in which Sage Vasistha explains that all visions and thoughts of the mind are simply illusions. The pure consciousness of the Self is the only reality, eternal, all-pervading and existing in itself.
Shri Shivabalayogi Maharaj attained Mahasamadhi on 28 March 1994. Physically He is gone, but His Presence remains undiminished.
