About guru Gorakhnath

Apparently, nothing was known about the Guru Gorakhnath and the Natha Tradition founded by him in the Western world prior the last quarter of the 19th century, when few scriptures belonging to it were translated into English and published by Shrisa ChandraChandra
The name Chandra originated from Sanskrit, meaning ‘the illustrious one’...
Vasu. Through the twenties century, many more original works ascribed to the authorship of Gorakhnath came into light, being rediscovered by the efforts of various scholars; also, few modern works investigating the tradition of the Natha Yogis and their customs and practices were published in various languages.

With the publication of all those books, releasing the remarkable heritage of the Natha Tradition, it gradually attracted the interest of scholars and common people all over the world. Along with it, the name of the founder of the Natha Sampradaya, the great yogi Guru Gorakhnath came into prominence. In India, besides the extant mythological tradition, describing his miraculous abilities, the introduction of the system of practices known as Hatha Yoga is traditionally associated with his name, as well as the systematic exposition of the principles of the ancient tradition known as the Siddha Siddhanta. Another phenomenon of Indian soil, traditionally connected with the name of Gorakhnath, is the ascetic order of the yoga practitioners created by him, which is widely known in India as the Natha Sampradaya.

Therefore, all of these topics would be briefly introduced on this site as the directly related to the Guru Gorakhnath. When one attempts to describe the Guru Gorakhnath as an limited historical personality, and define the period of his life time, the place of his birth and the works written by him, very soon he realizes that these could not be done in the traditional manner. The reasons for these are few, and the main out of them is that the Guru Gorakhnath could not be treated as the ordinary human person, but rather as the all-prevailing cosmic principle, as such he does not limited to one locality or to one period of time.

In accordance with the believes of the Natha Yogis, he is an immortal and remain always on this earth through all ages (char yug me vidhyaman), being invisible. When it is required, he appearing in his embodied form to protect Dharma and righteousness. He is unseen background and inspiriting power behind manifestation of the numerous saints who appeared on the Earth at different periods of history. In India, the Saint Kabir, the founder of the Sikh religion Guru Nanak, He was the founder of Sikhism who lived from 15th April 1469 to 22nd September 1539. His birthday is celebrated s Guru Nanank Jayanti or Guru Nank Purab. He was a traveler who spread his message of love, humanity and equality. He belonged to a merchant family but at the age of 16, he started working. His teachings are recorded in the Guru Grant Sahib. He preached people to take the name of God whenever possible as it was equivalent to worshipping him. Guga Pir, Raja Bhartrihari and many others remarkable personalities are traditionally associated in bigger or lesser degree with his name.

More ever, the geographical borders of India and one name under which he is mostly known, as the Guru Gorakh Nath, are not limit of all his deeds. In accordance with some stories about him, and popular believe, he is not bound to one physical body, and can easily live one body and enter into other, or to create one or few of them by his will. As such, he is immortal, and under different names, he appeared all over the Planet Earth at the various periods of time, at different places and under different names. In accordance with the Natha Tradition, he is the spiritual teacher and the guardian of our planet.

One of his latest embodied manifestations, recognized by the Yogis of the Natha Sampradaya, has taken place around tree hundreds years ago, when he appeared as the Siddh Baba Masta Nath.  As the Siddh Baba Masta Nath, he performed many supernatural miracles and numerous works for rejuvenating and reforming the contemporary Natha Sampradaya. One of the most recent appearances of the Guru Gorakhnath, took place about 150 years ago, in the jungle near the village Katvaria Sarai, situated in the area of the modern New Delhi city. At that time, he appeared to a young village man, who later became known as the Dada Arsukhsad, as an unidentified Natha Yogi, who was sitting near his fireplace (dhuna).

Arsukhsad walked upon him, while he was searching in jungle for his lost cows. In accordance with the legendary tradition prevalent around that place, the yogi introduced himself as Gorakhnath, and ordered Dada Arsukhsad to start the construction of the yoga ashrama, which presently known as Ram Talab Temple. When Dada Arsukhsad has objected about his inability to accomplish this work, the yogi comforted him, by saying that he would help him. When Arsukhsad has returned to his village, his garment has changed its color by itself, from white to the ‘bagva’ color, traditionally worn by the Shaiva The title ‘Shaiva is bestowed on the devotees of Shivaascetics.

When his uncle and other people of the village have noticed the closes of the bagva color on him, they thought that Arsukhsad has became insane, so they took off those closes from him and put on him another white garment. Immediately after this, the garment of Arsukhsad has changed its color once more, to the great amazement of the villagers. After this, Dada Arsuksad started live at the place he was told by the yogi, situated at the distance of few hundred meters from the place the meeting took place, and conducting the work of the construction of the ashram there.

His tomb (samadhi) still could be seen in the Ram Talab Ashram. In the following years, at the spot where that meeting took place, also was built a small ashram, which is presently known as the Gorakh Mari. The old tree, under which the yogi was sitting, could be seen there even today. The story above is the only one example out of many more miraculous events related to the Guru Gorakhnath, which have taken place in the various places of India.
