Invitation to Adivarapupeta for Mahashivaratri, 2012

The Adivarapupeta Ashram Trust and the Shri Shivabalayogi Maharaj International Trust invite and welcome all devotees to celebrate Mahashivaratri in Adivarapupeta, the sacred site of Shivabalayogi's twelve-year tapas.

This year, 2012, is particularly auspicious as the fiftieth anniversary of Shivabalayogi consecrating the Shivalinga (Ardhanarishwara Swami) and the idol of Devi in the place where he sat for almost ten of his twelve years of intense meditation, now inside the holy of holies of the Adivarapupeta temple. 

The day before Mahashivaratri is the occasion for a general meeting of devotees conducted by the International Trust.  It is a unique opportunity for all devotees to share their experiences and plans to make the spiritual blessings of Shivabalayogi available to all who seek.
