"This University exists to help you become Enlightened. To help you become God-Realized." - Sri Bhagavan
At the foot of majestic hills in Southern India, just north of Chennai, at a place called the Golden City, a global miracle is unfolding, reaching out to every corner of the earth. People from all walks of life, from all over the world, are taking part in a global phenomenon that appears destined to radically transform mankind for the better, bringing all of humanity into a new Golden Age within a remarkably short period of time.
Here reside Sri Bhagavan and Sri Amma, two divine beings (Avatars) whose sole mission is to end human suffering and bring all of humanity into a state of enlightenment and right human relationship. Their vision is to fully enlighten 64,000 people in the world. Through the natural action of the morphogenic fields (fields of consciousness), these 64,000 people will transform the rest of humanity establishing peace and oneness, not as an abstract idea, but as a direct and lasting experience for all people. Oneness University India has been established to facilitate this global transformation.
The Oneness University was established in 1996 by co-founders Sri Bhagavan and his wife, Sri Amma. According to Sri Bhagavan it was created for just one purpose, "To set man totally and unconditionally free, bringing about the Golden Age of Enlightenment." Sri Bhagavan continues, "This University exists to help you become enlightened; to help you become God-realized; to help you become a real human-being." It is a University where people from all over the world can awaken and return to their original state of Oneness with all that is.
Each month the Oneness University, located approximately 80km northwest of Chennai (Madras), India hosts hundreds of seekers from around the world. Participants for the Level 1 Oneness Process (formerly 21-day Enlightenment Process), the Level 2 Oneness Process (formerly 10-day Deepening Process), and various other classes travel from all over the globe to receive the benediction and teachings offered at this one-of-a-kind University. This University has hosted thousands of attendees from all the major continents and numerous countries including USA, Canada, Mexico, Central America, South America, Africa, Europe including UK, Italy, France, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Israel, Russia, China, South Korea, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and many more countries.
Oneness University consists of a series of campuses located within 20km of each other. Campuses 1 & 2 are located farthest to the west. Campus 3 is located just east, it is where Sri Bhagavan resides and performs his darshans. Campus 4 is also located nearby. Most Westerners stay at what is called the Golden City 2, farther to the east. Men's and Women's dormitories located there can house 250 people at any one time. Large meditation and teaching halls combine to offer a spacious setting where The Presence is felt 24/7. A large dining hall and clean and fully modern restroom and shower facilities complete the campus ammenities. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning for comfort. In the future Golden City 1 will open (projected opening is sometime late 2006). It is located just 1km away from Golden City 2 and can house several hundred attendees. Collectively these campus' are often referred to as simply "the Golden City."
What is taking place in Golden City is truly remarkable. People are coming from all over the world, most every month of the year, to participate in processes that, to start with, have them looking closely at themselves and their own shadows. Only when we begin to see our own egoic nature, and the way we have harmed others, as well as have been harmed and have compensated for that, we then begin the next stage of emptying in order to make way for embodying higher, divine consciousness. The process acts as a key to bring us to the level of the Divine. Thereby transforming us from within and helping to lift the rest of humanity to a higher level of consciousness and existence.
It is inspiring to observe what is transpiring at the Oneness University, the rate at which people are attending the Level 1 Oneness Process, hungry for something more real than what our ordinary materially-oriented tunnel-vision lives offer, and eager to be of service to all sentient beings. More and more people are feeling the stirring in their hearts of a world in transition, and soon, in complete transformation. People are waking up, getting in touch with their heart, and a deeper sense of values and belonging to the family of humanity and the larger universe. This growing sensibility has the power to make the difference in the world we are all looking for. With the grace of Sri Amma and Sri Bhagavan, in combination with the changing forces in the Cosmos, the Golden Age is being prepared to emerge.
