Jonathan Edwards - Wayne Dyer

Wayne Dyer has been a student of Dattatreya Siva Baba since 1991 and Dr. Dyer’s book, Manifest Your Destiny, is based on Baba’s teachings. Dr. Dyer dedicated this book to Baba Sri Siva, as “Guruji.” Wayne Dyer is a reincarnation case in my book, Return of the Revolutionaries, and I am happy to relate that Dr. Dyer agreed to be featured in my book as the reincarnation of Jonathan Edwards, a leading minister of the Great Awakening.

Disciple of Baba Sri Siva in Past Lives.

The Great Awakening was a movement that swept through American in the 1740s and its ministers encouraged people to develop a personal relationship with God. Differences between religious affiliations were set aside and ministers were encouraged to preach to people of contrasting denominations, to facilitate a more universal approach to religion. Services were often held in open fields, to enhance the message of universal salvation. Indeed, the Great Awakening made religious toleration part of the fabric of American Society.

One of the founding lights of this movement was Jonathan Edwards, who in our present day has been identified as Wayne Dyer, Ed.D. I first made the connection between Edwards and Dr. Dyer when I was reading about the Great Awakening. Ahtun Re, the spirit guide channeled through Ahtun Re, later confirmed this past life match.

Jonathan Edwards was considered one of the greatest theologians of his day. Born in East Windsor, Connecticut in 1703, he demonstrated an early aptitude and talent for metaphysical issues. In fact, at age ten, he wrote an essay on the nature of the soul.

Three years later, Edwards matriculated into the Collegiate School of Connecticut, which later evolved into Yale University. Edwards graduated valedictorian of his class. After earning a Masters Degree at this same institution, he moved to Northhampton, Massachusetts, to assist his grandfather, Solomon Stoddard, who was considered one of the most influential Puritan ministers in New England. After Stoddard died, Edwards took over responsibility for the congregation.

Reverend Edwards, much like Wayne Dyer, was a charismatic orator who could draw large crowds to his sermons. Edwards combined traditional Puritan ideas with mysticism, Newton’s physics, and the philosophy of John Locke. He believed strongly in predestination and the need for people to have direct, individual experiences of God. Interestingly, Edwards’s focus on direct religious experience influenced the great American parapsychologist, William James, and Edwards’s thought is invoked in James’s classic text Varieties of Religious Experience. In Return of the Revolutionaries, William James is identified in contemporary times as parapsychologist Jeffrey Mishlove, host of the Thinking Allowed television series.

Edwards’s passionate approach to the pulpit helped bring about the “Little Awakening,” a religious revival that swept over Massachusetts in 1734 and 1735. Edwards later authored A Faithful Narrative in the Surprising Work of God, in which he recorded the events of the Little Awakening for posterity. In 1740, George Whitefield, an equally fervid minister visiting from Britain, called upon Reverend Edwards. Whitefield was blessed with a voice that was musical in quality and could reach thousands in the open air. In his sermons, Whitefield liked to use the word “ Mesopotamia,” and it was said that he could melt an audience with his pronunciation of this word. Edwards and Whitefield joined forces and together started the Great Awakening. The contemporary identity of George Whitefield is known, by the way, but will be revealed at a later time.

In 1757, Reverend Edwards became President of the College of New Jersey, which later became Princeton University. This role is consistent with the character of Wayne Dyer, who has a doctorate in counseling psychology and who is considered an educator. Jonathan Edwards authored a number of highly popular works, which is also consistent with the talent of Wayne Dyer. Several of Edwards’s essays, such as “A Careful and Strict Enquiry into Notions of Freedom of Will,” “A Treatise Concerning Religious Affectations,” and “Dissertation Concerning the End for Which God Created the World,” are considered classics in American theological literature.

Edwards’s works are reflected in Wayne Dyer’s books, which increasingly have focused on spirituality and religion. Indeed, themes of the Great Awakening are evident in Dyer’s books. In his bestseller, Wisdom of the Ages: 60 Days to Enlightenment, Dr. Dyer surveys the spiritual thought of great minds throughout history, many of whom stem from divergent religious traditions. This mirrors Edwards’s approach to theology, in which he integrated traditional Puritan doctrine with the ideas of Newton, Locke, and other great thinkers. As implied in the title of Dr. Dyer’s book, personal enlightenment or direct religious experience is the ultimate goal. This again reflects the thought of Jonathan Edwards.

A subsequent book composed by Dr. Dyer, There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem, was inspired by a St. Francis of Assisi poem. Review of this book’s jacket reveals another parallel between Edwards and Dr. Dyer. Due to his emphasis on feelings and emotions, Jonathan Edwards was known as the “theologian of the heart.” On the jacket of Dr. Dyer’s book, he writes, “Thinking is the source of problems. Your heart holds the answer to solving them.”

Dr. Wayne Dyer was a Disciple of
Baba Sri Siva in Past Lives.

And finally, we have Dr. Dyer’s book, Manifest Your Destiny, which is based on Dattatreya Siva Baba’s teachings. Regarding this book, there is an informative interview conducted by Randy Peyser, which can be reviewed at Dr. Dyer, in this interview, relates:

“There is a universal intelligence that we call God or Soul or Spirit or Consciousness, and it is everywhere and in all things. There is no place that it is not. What we have to do is figure out a way to reconnect to our Source, rather than seeing ourselves as separate from it. Almost all of our conditioning has told us that we can’t manifest. We believe we can’t attract to ourselves what we want because we think we are separate from God, and whether we are able to manifest anything is dependent upon whether God wants us to do that or not. But if we see ourselves as connected to God, or as reconnecting to our Source through meditation, then we can attract anything we want into our lives.”

Note a common theme of Jonathan Edwards and Wayne Dyer, which is to reconnect with our Source, to have a direct experience of God. Note also that Jonathan Edwards was a child prodigy in matters of spirit and at the age of ten, he wrote an essay on the nature of the soul. This is similar to the history of Agnastyar, Ramalinga and Dattatreya Siva Baba, who all demonstrated spiritual gifts early on in life. Dattatreya Siva Baba has indicated that in previous lifetimes, Wayne Dyer has been his disciple. Dr. Dyers statement, “if we see ourselves as connected to God, or as reconnecting to our Source through meditation, then we can attract anything we want into our lives,” certainly reflects the teachings of Siva Baba and the Tamil Siddhas.

Perhaps Wayne Dyer was one of the 12 disciples of Agastyar, or perhaps he was Ramalingam’s principle disciple and biographer, Velayutha Mudalier, or perhaps Dr. Dyer was one of the disciples who sang “Supreme Grace Light, pour down upon us,” when the “flash of violet light emanated from Ramlingam’s room, signaling the merger of Ramalingam “into all the bodies of His creation.” Perhaps Dattatreya Siva Baba will reveal his past life connections to Dr. Dyer in more detail someday.

One thing we know for sure is that Wayne Dyes is a great orator, as he was in his lifetime as Jonathan Edwards. If Dr. Dyer chooses to use his voice to spread the word regarding objective evidence of reincarnation, then, with the help of Agastyar/Ramalingam/Dattatreya Siva Baba, we can truly transform the world.

Swami Ramalingam (Vallalar) - Baba Sri Siva

Dattatreya Siva Baba has also revealed that he is the reincarnation of Swami Ramalingam, also know as Vallalar, another saint from the Tamil region of India. Ahtun Re, the spirit guide channeled through Kevin Ryerson, whose ability to make accurate past life matches is demonstrated in the cases of Ralph Nader, Carl Sagan , Neale Donald Walsch, Steve Jobs and Oprah Winfrey, has confirmed this past life match. Let us examine the very interesting life of Ramalingam.

Ramalingam is one of the favorite saints or siddhas of southern India. He underwent a Divine Transformation and wrote 40,000 verses describing this achievement. Every day, millions of school children sing verses written by Ramalingam.

Ramalingam was born on October 5, 1823, in the Tamil village of Marudur. His family name was Pillai. At five months of age, Ramalingam was taken to a Hindu temple for sanctification. During the ceremony, a great atmosphere of sanctity descended upon the temple, so noticeable, that the chief priest ran up to the Ramalingam and declared that he was a child of God.

Ramalingam was a child prodigy and at five years of age, after a few lessons from a tutor, he began composing ecstatic verses to God. At nine years of age, in the family’s home at 9 Pillai Street in Madras, India, Ramalingam gathered writing materials and isolated himself in his room. He then wrote what was termed a “torrent of psalms and hymns.”

At twelve years of age, his elder brother, who taught religion, asked Ramlingam to substitute for him due to an illness. The congregation was so impressed by the teaching of this young boy, that they choose to have Ramalingam complete the lecture series. Throughout his formative years, he continued writing verses, yearning for “descent of the divine grace.”

By 1846, when Ramalingam was 26, he had already attracted disciples. At that time, a scholar named Velayutha Mudalier became his principle disciple, who over the next 25 years documented the life of Ramalingam.

In 1860, at 37 years of age, Ramalingam moved to the village of Vadalur and founded a house to feed the poor. During the inauguration ceremony, which lasted for three days, 10,000 people were fed. Ramalingam taught compassion for all things, condemned the killing of animals, and converted many to vegetarianism.

Ramalingam composed many of his spiritual verses at night. His principle disciple, Velayutha Mudalier, persuaded Ramalingam to allow him to publish his verses to God, which were issued in 1867 as The Divine Song of Grace. Written in poetic form, in Divine Song, Ramalingam describes the attributes of God and the soul, and of the spiritual transformation that he was going through.

As Ramalingam evolved spiritually, his physical body took on a golden hue, as he developed a “body of love.” As he continued to sing in praise of God, he later developed a “body of light.” At this point, his physical body was no longer perceptible to touch and further, this light body cast no shadow. With this transformation, Ramalingam had merged with God.

RamalingamNot only was Ramalingam’s light body imperceptible to touch, it also could not be photographed. The famous photographer Masilamany Mudalier of Madras was summoned by Ramalingam’s disciples to capture Ramalingam and his light body. Masilamany Mudalier tried to photograph Ramalingam on 8 separate occasions, but the photographic plates only revealed Ramalingam’s clothes. His body was transparent to the camera. During this time, Ramalingam demonstrated telepathy, and miracles and healings were performed by him.

In 1870, Ramalingam moved into a small hut in the town Mettukuppam, three miles south of Vadalur. This hut still exists today. In Mettukuppam, Ramalingam had his disciples built a temple, which at its core had a glass box, 5 feet tall, with a flame burning in its center. The box represented the soul, merged with God, or Supreme Grace Light. In this period of time, Ramalingam alternated spending time in seclusion with giving lectures on “universal spiritual communion,” as described by M. Govindan in Babaji and the 18 Siddha Kriya Yoga Tradition. Madame H. P. Blavatsky, a founder of the Theosophical Society, came to know Ramalingam during this period and was so taken with him, that she wrote that Ramalingam was the forerunner for the Theosophical Society.

On January 30, 1874, at the age of 50, Ramalingam decided to merge with God and leave the physical plane. He wrote a declaration to his disciples, “My beloved ones, I have to be out of your sight for a time…I am in this body now and after a while I shall enter into all the bodies of His creation. Close the door and lock it outside. The room, if ordered to be opened, will only be void.”

Ramalingam then entered his room in the hut, in Mettukuppams, and the door was closed. His disciples remained in the hut, outside the room that Ramalingam had secluded himself in. Later that night, as his disciples chanted “Supreme Grace Light, pour down upon us,” a miracle occurred. M. Govindan narrates the scene. “Suddenly, a flash of violet light emanated from Ramlingam’s room, signaling the merger of Ramalingam “into all the bodies of His creation.” For, when the room was eventually opened it was found to be empty. Ramalingam had disappeared without a trace.”

After receiving a police report of Ramalingam’s disappearance, British colonial officials conducted an extensive investigation. Villagers were interviewed and the hut was carefully inspected by officers. M. Govidan writes, “Finding no evidence which would support suspicion to the contrary, they concluded that Ramalingam was a great soul who had vanished into thin air.” In 1878, an account of Ramalingam’s disappearance was noted in an official British publication, the Manual of South Arcot District.

Ramaligam left extensive documentation of his transformation and in his writings. He related that the Tamil saint Manikavacakar had achieved transformation into a light body before him, in the seventh century AD. Of note, on his web site, Baba Sri Siva reveals that he is also the reincarnation of Manikavacakar. In his lectures, Baba Sri Siva states that he remembers how to transform into light, as he did as Manikavacakar and Ramalingam. Baba Sri Siva promises to transform the world by developing a light body once again, for all to see.

At this point, I would like to identify a few principles of reincarnation observed in the case of Ramalingam/Dattatreya Siva Baba.

  1. First of all, we see how the phenomenon of a child prodigy can be understood in the light of reincarnation. Ramalingam was recognized as a child of God by a Hindu priest when only five months of age. Ramalingam began writing verses to God at age six and was able to teach religion to a congregation at age twelve. Ramalingam preferred to write his verses to God at night, rather than sleep. Ramalingam’s childhood spiritual gifts can be seen as a reflection of his mastery of meditation in his prior lifetime as Agastyar. In addition, Agastyar and Ramalingam both wrote extensive verses to God. In contemporary times, Dattatreya Siva Baba has demonstrated similar proclivities, for as a child, he scarcely slept and spent most of his time as a young boy in the temple, on the island of Rameswaram where he grew up.

    Another example of how a child prodigy can be explained through reincarnation involves the case of James Wilson/Oprah Winfrey. James Wilson was one of the greatest orators of the American Revolution, and when Benjamin Franklin wrote a speech in support of the US Constitution, he chose James Wilson to read it to the Constitutional Convention. Oprah Winfrey, though raised on a pig farm and denied a good education, was a naturally gifted orator. At the age of seven, when only in third grade, Oprah was paid $500 to give a speech in front of a church group. Biographer George Mair commented on her very early “poise and ability to engage an audience.” At the age of seventeen, Oprah participated in a White House conference on youth, as well as a national speaking competition. Oprah’s natural gift of oration can be seen as the continuation of James Wilson’s similar talent.
  2. Oftentimes, symbols and synchronistic events appear in one’s contemporary life that reflect a past incarnation. For example, regarding my own case as John Adams, for eleven years I worked as a medical director for Unocal Corporation (Union Oil Company), whose slogan is “The Spirit of 1776.” In addition, my reincarnation graphics, which included a past lifetime of Bill Clinton, were delivered to President Clinton at the White House by Reverend Michael Beckwith on John Adams’ birthday. My book contract was also signed on John Adams’ birthday and the first time I presented my work in public was in Sturbridge Massachusetts, at the “Old Publick House,” built in 1772. The room I gave my presentation in was filled with paraphernalia from the American Revolution. In Return of the Revolutionaries, Marianne Williamson is identified as the reincarnation of Abigail Adams, the wife of John Adams. In a synchronistic manner, I met Marianne for the first time on Valentine’s Day, at which point she gave me permission to use her images in my book.

    In the case of Ramalingam/Dattatreya Siva Baba, note that Ramalingam’s family name was Pillai, which is also Baba Sri Siva’s family name. Ramalingam sequestered himself in his room and started writing an extensive series of verses to God at age nine. His home, which still exists, was located at 9 Pillai Street, in Madras.

  3. In the case of Ramalingam we see how personality traits, passions and talents can be maintained across lifetimes. A number of common traits are described below:
    • Like Ramalingam, Dattatreya Siva Baba became immersed in spiritual study at a very early age, has attained enlightenment and has become a teacher to others. Indeed, these traits are also consistent with Baba’s lifetime as Agastyar, in the third century.
    • Ramalingam liked to write his verses at night. Dattatreya Siva Baba relates that he often does not sleep for several days in a row, choosing to do his spiritual work at night.
    • Ramalingam founded a house to feed the poor and on its inauguration, 10,000 people were fed over a period of three days. Similarly, Dattatreya Siva Baba has founded the Tripura Foundation, which feeds 1500 people in India daily.
    • In his prior lifetimes as Ramalingam and Manikavacakar, Dattatreya Siva Baba attained the same feat of developing a light body and dissolving into light. Baba Sri Siva states that he remembers how to enact this transformation, and intends to repeat this feat a third time, for the entire world to see.

Though most of us have accomplishments of lesser grandeur, the ability of Dattatreya Siva Baba’s soul to create a body of light in three lifetimes demonstrates a phenomenon that pertains to all of us. That is, over incarnations, we tend to demonstrate the same strengths, talents and weakness; we seem to embody a consistent set of energies.

Energy SpectrumWhen we are created as souls, it is as if a die is cast in which we are imbued with specific qualities, which remain consistent over many lifetimes. If one is created with a great deal of aggressive energy, perhaps symbolized by the color red, was well as a generous portion of intellect, symbolized by yellow, we will tend to be an aggressive intellectual over many incarnations. If we are created with an abundance of emotion, symbolized by blue, then we will tend to be sensitive and nurturing in successive lifetimes. If one is created with an energy pattern or energy signature conducive to merging with God, that person will have many lifetimes as a mystic, minister or guru. Over successive lifetimes, we grow by learning how to use our native energies, our energy spectrum or signature, more effectively.

In addition to being a very evolved soul, I would propose that Dattatreya Siva Baba has an energy spectrum that facilitates his ability to experience the mysteries of creation, and to create a body of light, in this lifetime, as well as in past lifetimes. Ramalingam’s transformation into light has been extensively studied and documented in a two volume work written by T. R. Thulasiram, entitled Arut Perum Jothi and Deathless Body, published by the University of Madras. These two volumes, released in 1980, contain 1800 pages. Baba Sri Siva has gifted this rare, two volume set to me, and I am very, very honored and grateful to be entrusted with this treasure.

In conclusion, Dattatreya Siva Baba is a living Tamil Siddha, as he was in prior incarnations. In a conversation with him, Baba has related that he and I have a common purpose, which is to help create a worldwide Spiritual Democracy, where all people are equal and united, where divisions based on conflicting religious doctrines are washed away.

Dattatreya Siva Baba has also announced that Kali Yuga, the Age of Darkness, has come to an end. I believe that the objective evidence of reincarnation that is being brought to awareness today will help in dispelling the darkness. In this light, let the Age of Miracles begin.

Agastyar - Baba Sri Siva

Tamil Region of IndiaTradition has it that Agastyar received his own initiation from Lord Shiva, an aspect of God, on Mount Kailas in the Himalayas of Tibet. Agastyar later traveled from Mt. Kailas south to the Tamil region of India. It was in the Tamil city of Courtrallam that Agastya initiated Babaji, whose birth year, we noted, was 203 AD.

Agastyar, considered one of the most famous holy men in India, was a dynamic fellow. In his book, Babaji and the 18 Siddha Yogi Tradition, M. Govindan, relates that Agastyar, “though less than five feet tall,..was a fighter, a famous hunter and an archer, who triumphed over barbarous enemies, and whom, like Hercules of ancient Greece, none could approach in eating and drinking.” The life of Agastyar is detailed in the epic, Mahabharata.

Dattatreya Siva Baba differs from Agastyar, in that he is no longer a great hunter, eater or drinker. Instead, compassion for all life is the greatest virtue for Sri Siva. There are interesting similarities, though, between Agastyar and Dattatreya Siva Baba. Let us examine these:

  1. Interest in Language/Literature

    Agastyar is considered the father of Tamil language, as demonstrated by his treatise on Tamil grammar, which is cited to have 12,000 statements on the principles of language.

    Dattatreya Siva Baba, whose secular name is Baskaran Pillai, received his formal education at the Univerity of Madurai, in India, where he was a Research Fellow and earned a Master’s Degree in English literature, as well as a Master of Letters in Comparative literature.

  2. Interest in Ancient History, Religious History, Theology and Meditation

    Agastyar wrote Canda Pooranum, a work on ancient history which contained 1000 stanzas. He also wrote several treatises on religion and theology, including Calikianum, Poorna Soostru and Agastyar Dundakum Nooroo. Agastya was also a master in meditation and, as described, became enlightened on Mount Kailas in the mountains of Tibet.

    Dattatreya Siva Baba received a Ph.D. in Religious Studies at the University of Pittsburg. He then served as coordinator of Indian Studies within the Asian Studies Program at the University of Pittsburg, and taught Buddhist meditation. Dattatreya Siva Baba was also an invited speaker on Hinduism at the United Nations World Religions conference and served as an editor for the Encyclopedia of Hinduism. Siva Baba is a master of meditation and has attained enlightenment.

  3. Interest in Religious Rites and the Use of the Rosary

    Agastyar wrote Deekshavedy, a work that deals with magic, enchantment and the use of the rosary.

    Dattatreya Siva Baba dares his students to “live an outrageously wonderful life,” and teaches them how to manifest their desires in reality. Indeed, this process encompasses the message of Wayne Dyer’s book, Manifest Your Destiny, which was dedicated to Dattatreya Siva Baba. Siva Baba also sells “Mala Beads” on his web site, which are considered a meditation tool and are the equivalent of a rosary.

  4. Mali Beads Interest in Medicine, Pharmacology and Botany

    Agastyar wrote numerous treatises on medicine, surgery, pharmacy and the use of plants and herbs in the treatment of various illnesses. Indeed, he is considered the Hippocrates of the Tamil region of India.

    For the past two decades, Dattatreya Siva Baba has been involved in the study and use of herbs for healing, and plans to make available herbs from all over the world available through a web site he will manage. Sri Siva has sponsored several conferences on siddha medicine and he is conducting seminars to help AIDS patients enjoy better health.

  5. Interest in Science

    Agastyar wrote hundreds of treatises on various aspects of science, including medicine, chemistry and astronomy.

    One of Dattatreya Siva Baba's foremost goals is to integrate spirituality and science. He is trained in neuropsychology, which he has used to interpret yogic and tantric wisdoms pertaining to psychobiology, the interface between mind and body. Just as Agastyar was interested in astronomy, Siva Baba is an expert in Vedic astrology. Baba Sri Siva has participated in many university conferences and has been included on panels with Nobel Laureates, including Eugene Wigner of Princeton, who won a Nobel Prize in physics.

  6. Common Leadership Qualities

    Agastyar was a leader of the Tamil region of India and was described as a fierce warrior, who defended his people against invaders. He is also attributed as the first Tamil Siddha, or saint, who help found the Kriya Yoga tradition.

    In addition to his spiritual aspect, Dattatreya Siva Baba has served as a consultant to leading industrialists on business development and leadership skills. He heads a computer company in New York City and has founded the Tripura Foundation, whose purpose is to help eliminate hunger in the world. Currently, the Tripura Foundation is feeding 1500 people in India daily.

In sum, we see that Agastyar and Dattatreya Siva Baba share many qualities. Though an accurate image of Agastyar is not available, Dattatreya Siva Baba has been confirmed to be the reincarnation of Agastyar by Ahtun Re, the spirit guide channeled through Kevin Ryerson.

Interestingly, Agastyar, like Jesus, had twelve disciples. It is possible that Baba Sri Siva’s modern day student, Wayne Dyer, was once disciple of Agastyar almost 2000 years ago.

Agastyar - Ramalingam - Baba Sri Siva

Yoga is the science of attaining merger of the individual soul with Divinity or God. Yoga comes from a Sanskrit word that means “yoke” or “unite.” Many in the West think of yoga as a set of physical exercises and postures, which is just one discipline of yoga called Hatha Yoga. In its truest sense, though, yoga refers to union with God consciousness.

There is a lineage of saints who brought a form of yoga, Kriya Yoga, to the world, who originated from a region of India known as Tamil Nadu, which is located on the Bay of Bengal near the island country of Sri Lanka.

Map of IndiaTradition has it that one of the first of these saints or “siddhas” was Agastyar, who subsequently initiated Babaji, who is considered the greatest of the Kriya Yoga saints. Babaji was born in the Tamil region of India in 203 AD, and his teachings have been transmitted over time. In addition to Agastyar and Babaji, there were 16 other saints who contributed to the body of knowledge contained in Kriya Yoga. Recently, the teachings of Babaji and the science of Kriya Yoga have been popularized by Paramahansa Yogananda, who wrote Autobiography of a Yogi and who founded the Self Realization Fellowship.

Today, there is a living saint or siddha from the Tamil region of India who as come to the West to share the wisdom of Kriya Yoga, which is the science of attaining union with the Divine. This

siddha’s name is Dattatreya Siva Baba, though he has also been known as Baba Sri Siva, Sri Siva, Sri Guruji, Guruji and Brzee. Dattatreya Siva Baba has served as a spiritual teacher to Dr. Wayne Dyer, whose book, Manifest Your Destiny, is based on Baba Sri Siva’s teachings. Indeed, Dr. Dyer dedicated this book to Baba Sri Siva as “Guruji.”

In this narrative, we will discuss several past lives of Dattatreya Siva Baba. In each lifetime, he was a siddha of the Kriya Yoga tradition. A past lifetime of Dr. Wayne Dyer, which is featured in Return of the Revolutionaries, will also be described.

I am very pleased to relate that Dattatreya Siva Baba has become a supporter of my work and book, Return of the Revolutionaries, and he has validated that I am the reincarnation of John Adams. We share a common belief that objective evidence of reincarnation can help create greater world peace. Indeed, Dattatreya Siva Baba has announced that Kali Yuga, or the Age of Darkness, is ending and that an Age of Miracles, or Age of Truth, has arrived. I believe that the objective evidence of reincarnation, which is now streaming into the world, will help usher in this new Age of Truth. Let us now turn to past lifetimes of Dattatreya Siva Baba.

On his web site,, and in his book, The One Minute Guide to Prosperity and Enlightenment, Dattatreya Siva Baba identifies four of his past lives, based on his memories and knowledge of these lifetimes. In a session with Kevin Ryerson, I asked about the two most notable past lifetimes of Dattatreya Siva Baba, Agastyar, the Tamil Siddha described above, and Swami Ramalingam, also known as Vallalar, who dissolved himself into light in 1874. Ahtun Re, the spirit guide channeled through Mr. Ryerson, who has demonstrated an ability to make accurate past life matches, has confirmed that Dattatreya Siva Baba is indeed the reincarnation of Agastyar and Ramalingam. To review cases that demonstrate Ahtun Re’s abilities to make accurate past life matches, please examine the cases of Ralph Nader, Carl Sagan and Oprah Winfrey. Let us now review Dattatreya Siva Baba's past lifetimes as Agastyar and Ramalingam.

Ever bathed in the fountain of tears welling from eyes suffused with ananda,

We will all pray to him in ecstatic joy as our rightful lord, as our master

Who dances the dance of perfect compassion, as our bounteous treasure,

As our gracious amirtha

Hark we will live the life supreme, which knows no death.

In truth, I am not indulging in fancy, nor am I harbouring any untruth.

Lo! God is my witness! What i say is truth absolute.

The time is come to follow him into his uttermost and inmost chambers,

Effulgent, blissful and eternal.
