Rajinikanth Builds Ashram Near Babaji Cave in the Himalayas

Superstar Rajinikanth, a devoted follower of Babaji, is creating an ashram close to Babaji’s cave in the Himalayas. This move is aimed at inspiring fellow devotees to join him in meditation and engage in spiritual practices, including Kriya Yoga. Rajinikanth’s deep respect for Babaji has led him to establish this space for people to come together and enhance their spiritual journeys.

The Babaji cave holds historical significance as the place where Mahavatar Babaji introduced Kriya Yoga to Lahiri Mahasaya during the 18th century. This cave, situated in the northern region of India near the Himalayan foothills, attracts tourists and spiritual seekers from various places.

Rajinikanth’s connection with Babaji dates back to 1978 when he first encountered the teachings of Self-Realization Fellowship, founded by Babaji. Despite initially being drawn to it, he couldn’t delve into the teachings due to language barriers. However, his unwavering interest and admiration for Babaji have now culminated in the establishment of this ashram, where devotees can gather, meditate, and strengthen their spiritual practice.

Through this endeavor, Rajinikanth aspires to create a space that nurtures spiritual growth and brings people together in their shared journey of self-discovery and enlightenment.

According to “Autobiography of a Yogi,” Mahavatar Babaji is described as an immortal guru who roams the Himalayas. He has retained his youthful appearance and continues to traverse the mountains, emanating a saintly aura and possessing the powerful teachings of Kriya Yoga, which are widely recognized today.

Media accounts suggest that he was born in the second century. Some narratives propose that he hailed from Cuddalore and later moved to Rishikesh in his later years. An interesting anecdote mentions a house in Cuddalore claimed to belong to Babaji’s relatives, with neighbors asserting that he bestowed it upon them during a past visit.

It’s believed that Babaji resided in a cave situated within the Kumaon Almora district. His presence in this location is documented between 1861 and 1865. In the pages of his “Autobiography of a Yogi,” Yogananda, who had a meeting with the ascended master Babaji, has included photographs of Maharajji alongside Vivekananda.
