Eternally mourned By his son Harendra Kottyam.
Shri P. L. Kottyam was a direct disciple of Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri.He was a great yogi, philanthropist and soul having been in personal contact with the late Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri and the late Swami Sivanananda, . He also was in contact with Swami Muktananda.
In his later years my father became a discipline of the late Swami Poornananda Tirtha And even took me to’s seminars.
Regarding my late father’s experiences with the late Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri:
Firstly there was never any formal training or use of formal titles or hierarchy during the times of Bhagawan Nityananda.Anyone could just walk in and meet Bhagawan Nityananda.
Titles like Guru, master and the word Shaktipat were not used by Bhagawan Nityananda.. The oldest living disciple ( approx. 2 years ago) of Bhagawan Nityananda, Gopal Mama. Lived in ganeshpuri. I met him three years ago in Ganeshpuri. He was bed ridden, I asked him if he recalled my father and he said the name was familiar but he was not sure. He never used any title or the use of the word Shaktipat. He had spent several years in the service of Bhagawan Nityananda.He told me only one thing , everything is Nityananda, And Nityananda. is everything.
When I visited Ganeshpuri on 6th November 2009 I was informed Gopal Mama reached Samadhi approximately two years ago.
My father first met Bhagawan Nityananda in Padupidri a small town near Mangalore. There was no date but my father must have been a boy of 8 or 10 years ( he was born in 1916).At that time Bhagawan Nityananda, lived on trees and whenever the children met him, he would take out unlimited sweets from his loin cloth and distribute it to ALL the children. My father was present during at least two occasions.
My father then ran away from his village and went to Bombay, due to poverty. He worked his way up in life.In the 1930’s or early 1940’s my father who had a decent job at this time visited Ganeshpuri to meet Bhagawan Nityananda. At that time many persons who were from what is now Karnatnaka state a state in South India already knew about Bhagawan Nityananda as he had performed many miracles during his stay there.
When my father first met Bhagawan Nityananda, my father who had by then read many books of Indian saints like Sai Baba from Sirdi and others, asked Bhagawan Nityananda about them. Bhagawan Nityananda replied to him that these great souls are all dead, you are alive therefore only realize the atman, only that matters.
Bhagwan Nityananda then asked my father if he had eaten chicken, drunk whisky, and was inquiring about the address on his way to meet him. My father was surprised and admitted to these things.
Bhagawan Nityananda then blessed my father to start his own engineering business, which he did and it became very successful.My father then visited Bhagawan Nityananda from time to time.
My father was the person to supply a generator to Swami Muktananda in the 1960,s in his ashram in ganeshpuri. ( after the death of Bhagwan Nityananda )
My late father was a living saint, he donated the majority of his assets during his life time and NEVER told anyone of it. I only knew of it later on.
He mediated 8 hours a day, could read minds AND motives of persons, and had awakened his kundalini.
I was very fortunate to be blessed to have had such a father.
Some words of wisdom of my late father Shri P. L. Kottyam:
Note: Once my father was walking on the road and he saw a street dog dying. He saw to it that it was given water and made comfortable before it died.
My dearest mother Mercy Kottyam peacefully passed away in Berlin, Germany on 31st May 2012. She was the greatest lady in my life, and I was blessed to have had such a wonderful mother. She did so much for me in my life and I was not worthy of such a great mother. I pray for her soul to rest in peace, and I regret all the harsh words I spoke to her.
Eternally mourned by her son Harendra Kottyam.
