Biography

Guru Siddha Nath (Kani Ram Arya) was born to a poor family in Rajastan. His father was Baldev Arya and mother was Ganga Bai. His parents had four sons and two daughters. He was the eldest son.

He did not have any education. He worked as a child labourer as the financial condition was very poor. His childhood passed in Ujjain meeting saints and holding spiritual discussions with them.

His wife was Radha Bai. They had a happy married life. She also used to participate with her husband in bhajans (devotional songs) during Satsangs. She and the child died due to complications during first delivery. He was left alone. He did not marry again.

He worked, in order to maintain family and self, as a labourer in a lime kiln, a log-cutting factory, and as a small grocer, a watchman, a peanut vendor, etc. He worked for sometime in an electric department as a labourer but was removed form the service for not having even formal education. These situations never deterred Kani Ram but made Kani Ram bold to be spiritual to lead a life of truth.

He was much devoted to God and used to attend Satsangs and serve saints. He used to sing bhajans (devotional songs) along with other saints during Satsangs.

His Guru was Guru Bhuvani Nath who was a disciple of Azad Muni Baba aka Mithyavadi Baba. He met Guru Bhuvani Nath during a Satsang in Mandasor, MP.

He served Guru Bhuvani Nath. Guru Bhuvani Nath gave Him Deeksha and ultimately crowned Kani Ram as Guru and gave the spiritual name Siddha Nath.

Teachings

He taught His disciples, devotees and followers about simple living and high thinking.
He taught them to be truthful in body, mind and speech while leading a life of householder. Advised them to serve parents, look after wife, children and carry out the responsiblities in the society with the honestly earned money.
Living on beggings/charity/donations is against His principles.
His ABCD is Avoid Begging, Charity, Donation.
His EFGH is Earn For God Honestly.

His life is the proof of His teachings.

He advised people to practice Navatha Bhakti (Nine ways of practical Devotion towards one's favourite God/Goddess).

To have a glimpse of His teachings, see the following verses which were a minute part of inspired verses of a disciple by His wisdom and knowledge.

1.
Let truth be your speech,
Let righteousness never breach,
Practice what parents teach
Next, what the true Guru does preach.
Their services ever you beseech,
Then satisfy guests each,
By that, thee God does reach.

2.
Guru Siddha Nath says,
“Mother the first teacher,
Father the next preacher,
Then the true Guru be sought.
By that, God is easily brought.”

3.
There is no perfect rest
Even in a deep forest,
There is no perfect rest
Even on the peaks of Mt. Everest
If the mind is at unrest.
All is the same – palace or forest
If the mind you arrest
Then He is your nearest
And you are His dearest
Causing mutual interest.

False master because he didn't have 10 gurus

hugo's picture

This master is certainly dubious, he didn't have 10 gurus so he must be false. Also he jumped between two many systems and traditions so he couldn't have been serious.

Re: False master because he didn't have 10 gurus

Fool wants to be a son of more than one father.

The wise like to be the son of only one father.

Similarly Guru should be only One because he is the spiritual father of a disciple.

I need not say because people knew what to speak of a child who has more than one father, now the wise can think about the child who has more than one spiritual father.

No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. --- Matthew 6:24

Matthew could write about two Gurus only. Our Hugo who is greater than Matthew is going to state about serving 10 Gurus.

Beware, a charlatan!

Re: Beware, a charlatan!

We will prove who is a charlatan here with discussions.
Can you (shishmanidov35) take the challange?
By merely blaming someone as charalatan you cannot escape from truth.
1. Fools, who have not served a Guru, want to become Gurus to enjoy respect and postion in the society.
2. One whose ego has reached to the maximum point projects oneself as Guru or an incarnation of God to fool innocent people.

Who claims himself God
Know him to be full of fraud.
Who claims Guru on his own
Know him to be a perfect clown.
’Cause God and Guru even disown
The merit that They really own.

3. This may be noted that Guru Siddha Nath is not alive. I am only a disciple to speak the truth to people. Instead of attacking me these fools are blaming my Guru who has renounced the world long back. He has nothing to do with my actions. I am wholly responsible for my actions.
4. Come and speak truth. In this world one has to go to a teacher to learn something. How can one learn of the other world without a Guru? What a nigura (uninitiated or non-disciple) knows is only nescience.

Sans teacher, one cannot learn even science.
Sans Guru, what one knows is only nescience.

The wise say,
"Dubious is all one's knowledge
If a Guru, one doesn't acknowledge."

"Fools follow the one
Who has followed none."

5. Yes, the misconduct happened with fools is they cannot face a true Guru who strips their egos from bottom. Fools like to serve and follow those Gurus who massage their egos with flowery, favourable and flattering speeches.
6. The wise can decide themselves about a charaltan.
7. Real spirituality is practice of truth, truth and truth alone by body, mind and speech. Blind beliefs, foolish juggling of words(meta physics) and superstitions have no value in real spirituality. They are condemned by the sages and saints of the past.
8. It is common among people the one who speaks truth is condemned and given bad names. It is very well known to the world, what happened to Jesus for speaking truth.
