Around 3500 years ago (1500 BC) the works of the ancient Dravidians were almost lost. During the Aryan invasion from the north many ancient schools and temples were destroyed or taken over/integrated into mainstream Vedic Hindu philosophy (a relatively young interpretation at the time).
Vedic Scholar Guru Bhimashankar Dattatriya while on his kSaitraja Atyadhvan (wandering of a scholar in order to reach a higher level of kSaitraja - spirituality); he happened across a near-deserted ancient Dravidian temple near Mahabalipuram. Only one Dravidian Swami remained - Swami Aaiyyan - The incarnation of Murugan.
After both Guru and Swami realised each other's genuineness in the spiritual path. They both shared philosophies and secrets. According to the notes of the Guru Dattatriya a few years had passed when his Dravidian mentor began to teach him the 12 rings of Aaiyyan (based on ancient Dravidian philosophy and science). Each ring had a story/parable then an interpretation.
It took him 12 years to comprehend the rings of Aaiyyan and at the full understanding of the last sermon he realised that Aaiyyan was actually the Avatar form of Malaikilavon, the Lord of the Hills - an ancient sent down to teach man the truth, enlightenment and oneness. Aaiyyan then taught the Guru the seven secret keys of the Universal gate.
When Swami Aaiyyan merged into the collective One. Guru Dattatriya began his mission to spread the word of Aaiyyan Murugan.
According to Aaiyyanist Doctrine, humans existed on this planet for around a hundred thousand years, when the spiritual world and the material world were very much closer than they are now.
Humans, Gods (Devas), Spirits, Demons (Asuras) and other beings existed in multiple planes of reality where they could pass through easily and interact. Thus in all cultures around the world there are tales of humans existing and interacting with many beings, such as the High Gods. This all changed via the blocking action of the Demon Surapadman and finally the ancient knowledge of reality was finally destroyed (almost) by the Kalaiyyan incident in 15,000BC, which is detailed below.
Now follows a brief description of the ancient history of the Kalaiyyans as revealed to Guru Dattriya by Swami Aaiyyan – the incarnation of Murugan. The information given below is mostly revealed in the texts given by the 3rd and 6th rings of Aaiyyan – the Ancient Texts of the Aaiyanist Hindu faith. It was said that Swami Aaiyyan revealed to Guru Dattriya the truth of the ancient humans who existed several thousand years before the Cera dynasty (before Sri Alagumuthu et al) - around 15,000 BC. This was a time where the Dravidian lands was actually ruled by the Dravidian Aaiyyanists and then deposed by the distant ancestors of the Kalabhras called the Kalaiyyans. These ancient relations of the Kalabhra were said to have then formed a great Kingdom within the heart of the Dravidian Lands, but of an evil persuasion. Of course, in the ancient Dravidian Hinduism traditional good and evil are subjective – they are all part of the universal OM, however it is said that these rulers broke a sacred taboo (which is explained below) and thus destroyed their ancient kingdom.
According to Aaiyyanist tradition these Aaiyyanists and the Kalaiyyan rulers were skilled in using the magic of the ancient Hindu Dravidian symbols (Yantras), which were able to unlock the boundaries between the physical world and other spiritual dimensions in order to affect the physicality of this plane - via a process of energy resonance. Of course this is described in the ancient texts (not just Aaiyyanst texts but the Cholas and Pandya scripts) as Lokas whose maps are stored In the Akashic Records. As an aside, these Yantras are said to be closely related to the Harrapan script, but the Aaiyyanist historians formulate that the Dravidian Yantras (or symbols) to unlock the gateways are very much older. The Aaiyyanists claim to have kept this secret knowledge to this day and have collated all the ancient Dravidian magical Yantras from this era.
To explain the full meaning behind the Yantras/symbols would take many volumes, and in fact there are several volumes by the great Aaiyyanist historian Ud- Delvyan that give a good grounding in the subject. But to summarize: the Yantras represent an ancient Aaiyyanist script that the Aaiyyanist rulers used as tallikA's (keys) to unlock the pathways to the different dimensions (or Lokas). Once these dimensions are opened the power can flow between Lokas and this world resulting in a transference of resonant energy that can affect the physical and spiritual dimensions both in this world and others. There is a law of transference that dictates that energy from one realm (Loka) is removed and transferred equally to this world and can be used (via the Yantras) to change the physical.
For example the healing symbol of Kurkulyan concerned with healing the lower body derive their origin thusly: The scripts/symbols that are used to compose Kurkulyan are in fact the key to unlock the door to the Kurkul (Patala) Plane that deals with aspects of one of the lower dimensions. The way the symbols are arranged (or read) is a key for a particular lock that once unlocked pulls a small amount of energy (in this case the Lower Earth) that is directed into the lower body to heal. The symbols (or ancient Aaiyyanist script) is positioned in such a way as to only unlock small amounts of this energy – so that it builds up inside the body to heal gradually. In fact most of the symbolic images in this manual release the energy slowly in order to build up resonantly - the reason being Is that the human body and this physical plane cannot deal with huge surges in energy – the energy will either be dissipated quickly or harm. Thousands of years of study have come to the conclusion on how the script Is positioned and even how it is written down in order to minimize Power surges and allow the energy to build up slowly and effectively.
To re-iterate – the scripts/Yantras are the representation of the ancient Aaiyyanist Dravidian language written in a symbolic script that can be used to unlock the various Lokas (or Talas) to pull (resonate) energy from various planes to this one in order to change the physicality and spirituality of the user and their surroundings. In a nutshell it can be simply explained that energy from other Planes can be used to affect the energy and material in the one we live in.
Here is a list of some prominent Aaiyyanists from the last century that have forwarded the cause of Aaiyyanist Hinduism and brought great peace and wisdom to the world.
Aaiyyani Aditi of the Aardra School.
High Aaiyyani Aditi of the Aardra School was born in 1943 and has taught many Aaiyyanists around the world the beauty of the Aardar School. She has taught our very own Swami Dhaval, Aaiyyani Udaiyan, as well as Aaiyyani Siven Oddaiyyan and many others who are part of this Aaaiyyanist community. She has written many books in Dravidian Aaiyyani which are currently being translated into English and other modern languages. She lives in Tamil Nadu and runs a small private Aaiyyanist School that is open to devotees of the Aardra Aaiyyanist path.
Guru Odayan, Sannyasin, Poet and Artist of the Aatmaani School.
Guru Odayan Guru Odayan was born as "Siven" in Okkur in Tamil Nadu in the year 1876 to the great Aaiyyanist House of Odayan. However, his parents were not very pious and discouraged Siven from learning the scriptures preferring instead to concentrate on a more academic syllabus so that he could follow his father as a accounting clerk. Siven resisted the inclinations of his parents and even when he was a small child, Siven had a great sense of morality, an inquisitive mind and an ability to memorise the scriptures by heart. It is said that he memorised the 12 rings of Aaiyyan by the time he was 8 years old. By the time Siven was 10 years old he started having psychic visions, and out of body experiences. He practised Yoga at a very early age to gain further understanding into his condition and wrote several books on the condition of the soul and the realms of perception.
At the age of 15 he completed his Aaiyyanist studies earlier than his contemporaries and left home to find a teacher to guide him. He travelled up and around India for a period of 40 years meeting several renown Swamis on his journey. It is said he became great friends with Swami Vishwananda Saraswati (of the Sankaracharya order) and travelled with him to Haridwar and Benares. He also briefly met with Vishwananda's student: The great Swami Sivananda in Rishikesh in the Himalayas in the 1920s.
Siven never found his Guru but he finally realised that he in fact was The Guru: The One with Aaiyyan. It was at this point in the 1940s that Siven became Guru Odayan and returned to Okkur and became The Aaiyyanist Guruji. He preached Aaiyyanism, produced wondrous texts and paintings and poems and reintegrated the Aaiyyanist mindstate with the greater Hindu community as a whole. He remained in Okkur until his death/ascension in 1958.
Swami Aadhavan founder of the MaunaM Aaiyyanist School.
Swami Aadhavan, was a Aaiyyanist Swami, teacher and sannyasin. He was born in Tamil Nadu in 1911 in the village of Vandavasi and was brought up as an Aaiyyanist by his deeply religious parents who were following the Harita (green path) and the teachings of Guru Kanyakubja. Young Addhavan however also found a deep spiritual link to the 10th Guru (Sarasvata) and recognized him as his Aaiyyanist mentor at a very early age. In fact before the age of 10 Addhavan used to have visions of the Gurus and Siva, Murugan and Ganesh and showed great skill in the Aaiyanist arts of healing and clairvoyance.
Later in life he dedicated himself to the poor and was for many years the Assistant Swami on 'The teachings of Guru Vithi Telgu', at the DevaNesan's Ashram; Swami at the School of VetriVel and the DuraiKannan's Asham. He founded the Aaiyyanist school of MaunaM in the 1960s and worked in Tibet and Nepal. He died in Mysore on 14th February 2002. There was only one photograph taken of Swami Aadhavan during his lifetime so we thank the MalaiSami Foundation for their kind permission to use it.
Swami Aiyan of the SainikaH School
Swami Aiyan was the head administrator of the Aaiyyani Chamber in Tamil Nadu and had the title of Abhicara Aaiyyani and Chief Agraga Administrator. He was also a leading exponent of the SainikaH School and had the SainikaH title of General. His administrative titles include Dedicated Abhicara Aaiyyani and Chief Agraga Administrator.
Swami Aiyan was born in Pavoorchatram in the South of India. His family was of a humble Aaiyyanist School - one of the Parishaantaa Aaiyyanist minority. Aiyan as a young child was born with a spinal disfigurement which meant that he had trouble standing and walking. He used a large wheelchair made by his father all his life; so as a young boy would be wheeled to the temple and school by his friends and family.
Aiyans mother took the scriptures of the "Accent To The Veil" by Guru Jnanavajra very seriously and especially taught the young Aiyan the beauty of the verse: "Those without food and shelter both spiritually and physically must be fed, clothed, and housed by you - The Pure Aaiyyanist. Duty is everything" Aiyan lived this mantra all his life and helped house and feed the poor. In fact Guru Aiyan would allow anyone in need to enter his small hut and stay and discuss topics such as the Truth and Enigma of Siva, or the Paradox of The Shadow Murugan.
He continued his charitable works throughout his life and set up many Aaiyyanist Schools and Ashrams. He was renowned in his life as a Master Clairvoyant and could communicate fluently with Spirits, Gods and the Inner Aaiyyanists.
He was appointed as secretary of the Aaiyyani Chamber in 1965 and remained in that position until his ascension in 1980. He will be sorely missed by all that crossed his path.
After Guru Dattatriya there were 11 other Gurus/disciples in succession (these are called the Master Gurus of the Aaiyyanist tradition. Note also that four of the Gurus Masters were female devotees and two were of indigenous tribal origin, as the school of Aaiyyan at an early age revealed the oneness of all beings. We have highlighted the female (f) and indigenous(i) Gurus for any students/scholars that are interested in exploring the universality of the Aaiyyan religion.
(Note the age Kali Yuga is denoted as 3102 BC - so the Gurus were anointed during the early part of the cycle.). For more details about the life and works read: The Journey by Guru Asha Saptrishi (see the book section for more details).
The list above shows the lineage of the Aaiyyani Gurus of Old. Here is a list of some prominent Aaiyyanists from the 20th century that have forwarded the cause of Aaiyyanist Hinduism and brought great peace and wisdom to the world.
The Kalaiyyans committed the cardinal taboo of creating a symbolic Yantra representation - not to affect this plane but to change all the others. The method of symbolic representation is enhanced by two methods – the Guru (or Gurus) that are writing it down and the method of inscription. The Kalaiyyans performed this act by using their Guru Kings to perform the symbolic inscriptions. It is said by the Aaiyyanist historian Ud-Kuryian that they also used the Dravidian lands as their Canvas and the souls of thousands of humans as the brushwork in order to join all planes together to make their Emperor: KulKuddaiyan one with OM. The Emperor and the Kings arranged the blood-soul sacrifices across the Dravidian lands in the reverse symbolic representation of the Aaiyyan symbols (the most powerful of all Aaiyyanist symbolic images). However due to the law of energy equality there simply was not enough Atmans (souls) that the Emperor could sacrifice to perform the joining. The land then became corrupted for tens of thousands of years and the Aaiyyanist movement declined until the re-emergence of Swami Aaiyyan around 1500BC.
Researching and creating new symbolic magical Yantras takes very many years of Hindu-Aaiyyanist study but there are still many research groups that are currently operating now to open new gateways to Lokas and Talas (postive and negative dimensions). There are also other designations of dimensional energy such as hot,cold, light dark etc... and these advanced dimensional Yantras are usually researched by the various Schools of Aaiyyanism. Most research groups are mainly based inside the umbrella of the Aaiyyan World Foundation, but this is not always the Case.
