Mahatapasvi Shri Kumarswamiji was born in 1909 on the day of 'Rakhi Pournima', at the village Hunshikatti, Belgaum district, Karnataka state, India.

Shrimati Chinnamma and Shri Lakshman-appa, a pious married couple, were ardent devotees of a Sage Shri Rudramuni at Hunshikatti village. Even while being pregnant mother Chinnamma used to go and clean Shri Rudramuni's Ashram every day. Pleased with her devotion and service, Shri Rudramuni blessed the Mother and asked her if she wanted anything. The mother said, 'Bless me with a son who will bring glory and peace to the family.' Shri Rudramuni said, 'Yes, you will get a son who will bring glory and peace not only to your family but also to the whole world.' Chinnamma was very happy and with that blessing she went away. But, as the stories say, Shri Rudramuni's eyes became wet with tears because he could see the future and he saw that the mother would not live to take her newly born baby in her arms - her son who was later to become a great Yogi, Saint and Gurudeva, Mahatapasvi Shri Kumarswamiji.


Occultism, in the real sense of the term, is neither magic nor witch-craft but a sustained and all-comprehending effort at self-knowledge, namely, knowledge of the self working in an through the Shahasrar Chakra, the higher plane. This coronal center is characterized by cosmic vastness, a grandeur of the Supreme Light, the treasure house of miraculous knowledge. It is this Divina Mensura of the mighty forces; and the man who has realized this coronal center is indeed the Divine or Cosmic Man who is the measure of the universe. Not Humina Mensura but Divina Mensura. is the decided object of real occultism; it is this Divina Mensura that is termed Shiva-Yoga and the Divine Man is called Shiva-Yogin in Virashaivism.
