G. Shivananda. Age 47. Got upadesha in 1972. A graduate, married and has four children. Is a farmer. He comes from Ron, Karnataka, India.

N. Mallikarjuna Rao. Age 47. Got upadesha in 1987. A graduate, married with two children. Claims he is an astrologer.

Note: The persons featured above are all quite ordinary, academically below average. Mostly have rural background. Undistinguished in all respects. No one has spiritual background. They rarely read books or magazines. Their contact with the Aashrama was accidental. They had just enough commonsense to judge our saadhanaa and showed grace in immediately embracing the vidyaa. They showed exemplary discipline in doing japah regularly. Their character is blemishless. They are simple and innocent. Perhaps these basic qualities of head and emotions shielded them from distracting stimuli. Blessed they are, for they are knocking for entry into the kingdom of God. Amen.
