The Divine Lineage has had a profound impact on my life. Their wholehearted dedication and willingness to share and teach the ancient knowledge has brought such a depth to my spiritual practice. They are guiding me closer to my inner guru, my soul and for that I am forever grateful.

The Virtual Ashram has been a lifeline during the pandemic. I don't know where I would be without it. Taking the online classes and joining in the mediations is what has kept me going during this dark time we are in. Being able to spend my time with a loving community, growing, sharing, and meditating with others has not only kept me sane, but I am growing in ways I never could have imagined. The amazing ancient teachings about the heart and soul are waking me up to the truly shared reality of humanity. We can not do this alone. Though we are physically distant, our hearts open to each other removes that distance and creates a genuine feeling of oneness which in turn has to be shared again and again. I am so grateful for the tireless efforts of the staff and support teams at the Divine Lineage Center, they are the most committed and genuine group of people I have ever met. Thank you with every cell in this body, thank you.

The quality of the programs offered both online and in person at the Divine Lineage Center is top notch. I am always transformed through my participation in them. I have not seen any spiritual groups giving this level of information and experience.
It is deeply heart opening and soul healing. The staff is supportive and very helpful. The onsite grounds and temples are ever evolving and becoming more and more alive with energy and beauty. I am just so happy to be a part of such an amazing group of people who are so welcoming and genuine sharing the deepest spiritual knowledge and practice, helping the world to heal. Thank you!

Less than 8 months ago Divine Lineage was largely unknown to me. Now their presence is the most significant aspect in my life, especially the Virtual Ashram. There are no words to adequately express the remarkable teachings from dedicated devotees of Sri Kaleshwar. I am truely grateful for the personal guidance and teachings that i have been freely given. There is so much more to be explored within Divine Lineage. I am so blessed to have found this ancient knowledge, lovingly shared with openess, kindness and integrity. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

My goodness gracious, how much better things are turning out, now that I am doing them with the energy of my soul.

My reasons for sharing this are to tell you how glorious it is to have life energy to do things. I am so happy and grateful for these teachings, and especially the teaching about confidence being in the same vein as faith, and using this whenever we need a little confidence.

Like a sparrow with a string fastened to my feet, I was pulled by Baba to this sacred Lineage and Ancient Knowledge. My gratitude has no bounds. The first program I attended at Divine Mother Center was the Guru Purnima 2018. I arrived as a true beginner but felt welcome from the very first moment by the amazing lovingly community there. I became a committed student since and have participated in more than 18 programs with them, growing my understanding on the knowledge and deepening my experiences towards the Divine. My life has changed completely and still develops in the most beautiful way through their teachings and love. I feel ever happier, softer and more peaceful, both inside and out. Thank you for the continuous blessings that the Divine Mother Center keeps on sharing to the world!

Knowing and feeling that I am part of a community of love and healing is blessing my soul. I feel deep gratitude to the Divine Mother Center Programs and of course, to Swami and Baba.

It is with great enthusiasm that I wish to share my experience of the Divine Lineage Healing Center. I'd honestly like sing from the highest mountain top about how my life has transformed by connecting here, yet, I find there are no words to give it justice, really. I can try by saying that every intricate detail of my life has shifted in such a beautiful way. And quite frankly, a positive ripple effect for those around me as well. I can’t think of anything greater than the reward that comes with basking in the light and guidance of Nityanandaji and Mataji, combined with our entire soul family joining here. A gift that keeps giving. Gratitude overflows.

My heart completely goes to Nityanandaji, Mataji and the whole team at Divine Lineage Center. For 20 years I believed I new about spirituality, but I most say that after joining the virtual ashram and the amazing satsangs that I came to realice how little I new and how small my practice was. Nityanandaji teaches and guides us with great love, joy and wisdom, as a result of that all aspects concerning my practice and my ways of being have taken a 180 degree turn for the best. The experience has been amazing!!!

The Divine Mother Center's Virtual Ashram is an exciting and effective platform for studying the ancient knowledge of the palm leaves shared by Sri Kaleshwar. With the expert guidance of the instructors and the support of the student community, I am deepening my understanding of the different systems of these enlightenment teachings and moving ever closer to the self-realization that I seek. The Center also regularly provides meals to the surrounding community in need and broadcasts multiple free events on YouTube each month. The many offerings from the Divine Mother Center are a beacon for all people searching for a way to heal and help the world move into a new age of truth, duty, peace, and love.

Being able to spend 2 weeks in August at the Divine Lineage Center was the highlight of my summer. The center is located in the mountains above Laytonville, CA and provided the perfect setting for this meditation retreat. The hours spent in stillness and contemplation were nectar to my soul, and the cosmic energy that fills that place brought great clarity to my mind, which I was able to carry with me back home and incorporate into all aspects of my life. Many thanks to the teachers and staff of Divine Lineage Center for offering many opportunities to spend time there, learn the ancient knowledge, and heal my mind, heart, and soul. ~Suzzana Power

Huge love to the dedicated crew who work tirelessly to make it so.

I scheduled my first visit to the healing center not knowing exactly what to expect. I had physical issues that had been troubling me for years. The results were so remarkable that I came back for two additional visits within three months, treating me successfully for depression and anger that traditional modalities never resolved. I have recommended this center to a friend who is also thrilled and grateful for her care. Definitely five stars.

I’ve been studying and participating in the programs at the Divine Lineage Healing Center for over 6 years now. I appreciate and treasure my experiences there. So much so that last year, I moved from Colorado to live closer to the center. I’m so grateful for and inspired by the dedication, devotion and care in which the directors and the staff of volunteers serve the center and the spiritual community. The programs here are so beautiful and impeccable. Monika, Nityaananda and other teaching staff share very advanced knowledge and create powerful experiences that I have been blessed to participate in there in person and also via their online remote programs. My spiritual knowledge and channels have grown deeply as a result of my participation in programs, seva and processes at the center. Thank you Divine Assistants International for the beautiful work you are sharing -- impacting the globe so powerfully!! ❤️

This is place of Miracles.

I have been many times to the Divine Lineage Healing Center for their amazing programs and powerful ceremonies. They are so moving and healing. The staff has always been so very loving and generous with me. It is truly a divine experience.

But now, I have been at the Divine Lineage healing center for 3 months because I had a breast cancer diagnosis. I came to the Center because I wanted to address the cancer from Spiritual and Herbal approaches.

My time here at the Divine Lineage Healing Center has ben MIRACULOUS.

My walnut sized tumor has shrunk bit by bit over the three months I have been here. I could feel it fading away. I will go back now for the scans and opinions of allopathic medicine. But I will always know how and where this miracle happened.

But that is only one miracle. I went for spiritual reasons, and I got everything I could hope for for my soul as well. My awareness expanded, I was able to clear all sort of old patterns and karmic issues. I felt that I was walking with angels who were guiding me. So many beautiful things just appeared and happened with the nature, the fire, the people. Each with its own healing energy.

This isn't just a great non profit, Miracles are happing here. These beautiful souls at Divine Lineage deserve so much praise and thanks, I wish I had the words.

They gave me hope when I had none. They cared for me, and loved me. They held me when I could not hold my self together. Where there was fear and darkness, they gave light and joy.

Their ceremonies and practices Heal at all levels. I am proof.

The full course offering was so jam packed with added materials, readings, and recordings it will take me a long time to really savor them all.

The people at Divine Lineage have a pure unwaivering dedication to raising consciousness on the planet that is inspiring. In addition, they are working hard in the illusion with charitable activities to make everyday life better for all. A beautiful blend of spirituality and humanity.

Divine Lineage Healing Center is a peaceful and powerful place to receive healing, study ancient spiritual knowledge, and connect to the Divine source of creation. I have been participating in online and in-person programs since 2014. Monika and Nityaananda do a brilliant job of teaching the ancient knowledge Swami Kaleshwar shared. The staff at the center always give 150% to making the programs packed full of healing techniques and teachings. They are dedicated to making them accessible to everyone near and far.
I can honestly say that I have experienced healing and transformation in all areas of my life since I began my studies with DLHC. Areas such as self-love, relationships, parenting, abundance, business, home, and health. I consider it a life-changing blessing to have found Divine Lineage Healing Center and the community there.

I was first introduced to Swami Kaleshwar in 2005 at the Divine Lineage Healing Center and began at that time to study with Swami. Monica and Nityananda, the main teachers at the Divine Lineage Healing Center were a core part of this ongoing process. After Swami's Mahasamadhi the role of the Divine Lineage HC was amplified, and a regular schedule of processes, large and small events, and new and full moon fire pujas ensued. This became important in maintaining a sense of community, providing support and presenting wonderful new teachings Monica and Nityananda had received from Swami. Now the many live teaching processes and pujas are available online, making so much of the Divine Lineage HC available to just about anyone. These teachings are for everyone, from any spiritual path, any religion. These are made accessible by Monica's deep insights and knowledge of Swami's teachings and Nityananda's clear and expansive knowledge coupled with his incomparable speaking abilities. The two of them together create a beautiful loving synergy, making the satsangs and the processes they teach both illuminating and powerful while at the same time spiced with humor and lightness. They are completely enjoyable and show no signs of ego! The Divine Lineage HC has a core group of dedicated people who do all the hard work necessary to maintain the center, produce the events and everything else needed to make everything run impeccably and smoothly. The center is providing much-needed knowledge and love in these troubled times. Accessing what is offered is easy and highly recommended. I look forward to every event and participate in as many as possible. It's a huge part of my life and I'm better for it.

After five decades of frustration on the path to authentic self discovery, a simple miracle happened... an actual experience of what I was seeking.

A combination of a world class energy power spot right in my backyard, a community of people who walk the talk, experiences of the divine throughout each day, plus a third-eye opening unlike I’ve only dreamed of experiencing... all within a few weeks!

Okay, please believe me when I say they are changing the world here in many ways.

I consider this one of the greatest gifts of my life... My name is Jules. I hope to see you there to share in the divine experience.

The great souls at the Divine LIneage Healing Center, in this persons experience, provide great service not only to individuals on many levels, but also for the whole world.

It takes tremendous love, dedication and selfless service to perform the rituals they do regularly week after week, year after year, no matter the challenges.

Although the authentic teachings, services and lineage may be originally Vedic, they are being offered in a way that Westerners are better able to access. Some of which were completely unavailable for most of us, until now.

Every sacred object, every service that has been sponsored so far through DLC, has been performed and delivered with great care and consideration. The Grace that flows through the lineage is immeasurably profound, mostly subtle and sometimes very real, like having my wallet returned, fully intact, the very next day after losing it on a London, UK bus....

This has also been experienced by my immediate family and friends too.

I've been honored and blessed to have participated in many of Divine Lineage's programs, both onsite and offsite. I can attest to the impeccability of every aspect of Divine Lineage's operation. The course materials are beautiful and the content is exciting, abundant and clear. Best of all, it remains in one's account to review at any time. The Divine Lineage team embodies sincerity, love, compassion, service, self-sacrifice and humility. They are devoted to preserving and generously sharing the esoteric knowledge that leads to spiritual experience and eventual mastery as taught by Sri Sai Swami Kaleshwar, a great Indian guru, and spreading peace and love for one another across the globe.

The programs offered by the Divine Lineage Healing Center are always good, even when being experienced online. But this summer, they far surpassed themselves. I attended two programs in person, and one from a distance, and my energy is totally different. I feel energized, nurtured and nourished. My knowledge has expanded far past what I expected I might learn and experience. Each program was powerful in its own way, but together, WOW!!! The teachings are held with integrity and respect, and shared accordingly. The rhythm of bhajans, fire pujas, abisheks, teachings, seva, and personal practice was intricately balanced. I am deeply grateful to have been part of all three programs. If you are wondering if the online programs lose any of the potency that one might experience in person, I would have to say I have wondered about that myself; I may never know, but what I experienced from a distance was amazing and beautiful. I do not doubt that it was the perfect experience for me, and though I would have loved to have been there in person, it wasn't possible. I am immensely grateful that it was opened to participation online. I love that there is still the sense of being in the group process even when not being present in person, there is still a sense of unity. Another plus to this community is the international flavor-- people come from all over the world to participate, and I have enjoyed meeting and getting to know them, as well as joining together with a common intent. The community is warm and welcoming. The land-- beautiful, peaceful and powerful, with a beautiful small lake. If you are thinking of attending a program, do yourself a favor and just go for it!!

My experience with the “Winning the Master’s Heart” program and Guru Purnima this summer is beyond words. Even as a new student to this Lineage I was able to connect with the beautiful and powerful energy there. It was so profound that it feels like home and family to me now. My bond and commitment with the Master and the Divine grew stronger and is now a path where I constantly am attire to go to, it’s a part of me. So, I encourage anybody who feels the hunger to nourish its spirit to attend as often as you can, I know I am. It is a true Oasis of spiritual nourishment!!! Veronique Chapuy (Monterrey, México)

I participated in a very beautiful online course, this summer, offered by the Divine Healing Center. Hosted by Nityaananda & Monika-of-Penukonda, two great instructors, who shared what was, in my opinion, the most amazing spiritual knowledge, I have to say I was also really impressed by how well-organized & thorough the series of presentations and activities were.

I’ve been a participant, a volunteer and a staunch supporter of Divine Lineage Healing Center (DAI) for over 12 years. I am involved because every aspect of this organization is focused on serving and supporting people through spiritual teachings that expand knowledge and give experiences to connect us to our innermost heart. Students of this knowledge naturally take it out into their families and communities and that increases empathy, compassion, cooperation and love for others. DAI teachings foster participation in direct donations of food and services, uplifting music concerts, health and well-being and spiritual activities such as Fire Ceremonies and processes. All this is near and dear to my heart. Through my course work I gained peace, grace, open heartedness and happiness regardless of circumstances. I’ve included a picture of me and my youngest grandson because we are much alike - we both laugh often and want to know how things work. Thank you DAI for giving me access to how spiritual things work. V. Grace

I am constantly amazed at how deeply and perfectly the courses offered by DAI enhance my ability to be calm and productive in the midst of, well, life. For example, I recently attended the five day on-site course "Who Am I" which engaged me deeply and profoundly in the eastern study and experience of my mind's relationship with my soul. This deep dive into myself brought benefits that I hadn't even considered. Happiness just bubbled up along with a feeling of well-being and optimism that was inspiring. My mind got quiet and my heart opened to others with increased compassion and clarity and this feeling remains strong 4 months later. This is just one of many programs available through DAI online and at their site in Northern California that move me consistently forward toward wisdom.

Because Divine Assistants International (Divine Lineage Healing Center) exists, I no longer suffer with epilepsy, migraines or panic attacks. Self-harm and a desire (and attempts) to exit this life no longer dominate my actions or thoughts, and fear no longer dictates my reality. Divine Assistants International has, in no uncertain terms, changed my life and saved my life.

I now know from personal experience that it is possible to heal: from physical illness, emotional distress and despair, and soul sickness. The tools I needed to fully heal from a long history of violence were tools given me through my studies in courses offered at Divine Lineage Healing Center. It is through these courses that learning became a journey, and healing became real. I will continue to expand my experience and knowledge through these studies, and now I focus not on fear or despair, but on continually becoming a better conduit for love and healing.

The courses are lead by the highly advanced healers and teachers at Divine Lineage Healing Center, and the staff of Divine Assistants International (Divine Lineage Healing Center) consists entirely of women and men who are wholly dedicated heart and soul to the uplifting and healing of all beings across the planet; their dedication is astounding and inspirational.

In addition to all I have cited and so much more (I could write a book, it seems, so much to tell), the mission of Divine Assistants International (Divine Lineage Healing Center) is beautifully illustrated in the Peace Fire movement they created (https://peacefires.org). Now joined by individuals and groups in 188 locations and 27 countries, this movement for world peace and healing grows with each global event.

During the times during which I find I am overwhelmed and, "the world is too much with me," the tools I've developed through courses, and my ongoing studies with Divine Lineage Healing Center, provide me with the courage and strength needed to lift up out of negativity. Considering the current climate of suffering, uncertainty, anger and fear we live in, it is, to me miraculous to know I am never, ever alone.

Although it may take many, many lifetimes, it is my intent to one day repay Divine Lineage Healing Center for all they have done, and continue to do, selflessly and with genuine heartful intent for the well being of the planet and its inhabitants.

My past is one of great violence. Growing up the victim of violence as a young child, I repeated the pattern of victimization for much of my life through abusive relationships, and attempted suicide twice (both times the doctor told me I should not have survived). I hid from an armed boyfriend in a basement, lied at emergency room visits about damage to my jaw/shoulder/head, suffered frequent bouts of depression, and always, always, lived bound by the chains of fear.

It is a challenging endeavor to overcome deep childhood trauma, and I sought healing through a lot of counseling, earning a psychology degree, isolation, and many many hours of time in the wilderness. As I gained my degree, I ended the pattern of abusive relationships forever.
Still, I experienced panic attacks, nightmares, seizures, depression, and, as before, an ever present underlying fear.

Divine Assistants International is responsible for my being on this planet today. Anyone who knows me well hears me say this over and over again. Through completing many of the courses offered by Divine Assistants, I have found true healing. Emotional, physical, and spiritual. My suicidal ideation has completely ceased. I no longer have nightmares, panic attacks are becoming a long-ago and far-away memory (!!), and depression and seizures are no longer running my life. And, beyond all expectation, I no longer have the constant fear. Imagine, decades of deeply ingrained fear, despair and pain healed. Body, heart, and soul.

But I'm just one person. As I've healed and learned and grown through processes, I've witnessed the powerful force for good that is Divine Assistants International. Feeding the most vulnerable of their community, providing global access to professionally designed and expertly presented life-changing courses through the Soul University (and I do mean life-changing), and providing healing to people across the planet, Divine Assistants International exists for one reason: the betterment of the well-being of all people and the planet.

It was not a blithe manner in which I shared my story. In fact, I have never publicly written of my violent past. But I know that this is a non-profit that depends largely (mostly) on us: you-me-all of us, to stay alive. And it is the least I can do because they are the reason I am alive.

In 2016, Divine Assistants International began the #countyourlight movement , and on New Year’s Eve 2016, in an interfaith action, thousands of people in 68 countries came together and sent positive intentions for 26 continuous hours. This movement continues to grow, and includes the peace fires that take place every month.

Divine Assistants International means comfort, learning, acceptance, growth, healing, global community, life, and love. Hope in a time many deem hopeless.

We can be the light to an organization that ends darkness for so many.

More than ever we need this kind of organization - a dedicated group that is devoted to sharing ways we can each maintain a life of peace and healing. I don't have the words to adequately describe how hard the residents at the Temple work, how completely they have dedicated their lives to keeping the Light shining for a world that at times seems to be growing increasingly dark. They model a life of service, peace and love. On-line educational opportunities enable me to continue my journey even though I live across the country. Joining healing programs through live streaming keeps my heart and spirit 'fed.' I can't imagine my life without them. In addition to educational programs and spiritual teachings, they use their limited resources to feed and clothe an underserved population in Northern California. If there is a need, Divine Assistants International will do whatever they can to meet it. They have the heart and the will. It's up to us to provide the means.

I've worked in, and benefitted from, nonprofit organizations for over 30 years. Divine Assistants International has consistently exceeded any other nonprofit in their organization, high quality programs and the dedication of their staff to taking care of others. Participation in their programs has literally changed my life, bringing me a sense of purpose and understanding that enriches me every day. The world often seems dark and chaotic. My deepest gratitude to Divine Assistants for keeping and sharing the Light.

Divine Assistants International is located in the poorest county in California. Their outreach to their community includes ongoing support for the local food bank, providing clothing and warm bedding for homeless and distributing holiday baskets to needy families. They teach us how to live more peacefully and productively in an uncertain world. They feed the hungry and help clothe folks who have no home. They are limited only by financial resources. I can't think of better program to support.

Divine Assistants International (Divine Lineage Healing Center) is the living embodiment of the healing power of love. Their mission of service encompasses communities of every type and size, from the small family home next door, to Earth Herself. They maintain an ongoing service of support for the homeless. Each year they stock and deliver hundreds of gift baskets to needy families and individuals during the holiday season. They give medical and spiritual healing to all who come to them. Their services include educational programs on building communities and a world based on humanitarian values of love for one another. Some students travel to Laytonville, California, to undergo intensive workshops on site. Some enter Divine Lineage Healing Center’s distance learning programs. Divine Lineage Healing Center envisioned and brought into being the worldwide program of Peace Fires: The Global Movement Uniting People for World Peace and Healing. Through Peace Fires, people in 131+ locations in 22 countries around the world are uniting in Peace Fires to calm negativity and bring peace. As one client in one distant town in Alabama, I have a life that has been enriched by Divine Lineage Healing Center in fundamental ways. The teachings and practices I’ve learned through Divine Lineage Healing Center have given me relief from depression, and have taught me a way of living based on joy rather than fear. In these dark times, Divine Lineage Healing Center is a great light showing a path of hope and possibility.

One powerful example of this is through the 7 free live streaming Sacred Ceremonies for Healing and Raising Consciousness the Center broadcasts every Full Moon and New Moon that are always free and open to anyone. The Sacred Fire Ceremonies (pujas) and Holy Baths (abisheks) create positive, healing energy. So many people feel refreshed and renewed by tuning in to broadcasts from home, work, on a daily commute. These ceremonies renew inspiration, manifest dreams and send healing throughout the world. They create positive vibrations that are an antidote to the negativity in the world today.

I highly recommend joining with and supporting the Divine Lineage Center’s in-person and on-line meditation programs and live broadcasts any way you can.

I highly recommend the Divine Lineage Healing Center to anyone, especially those seeking to heal, awaken, love, and grow your divine spark. The Center is a sacred Shiva/Shakti power spot located in the remote forest of Mendocino County in Laytonville, Northern California. It is a place of miracle energy and of transmitting healing energy and sending positive divine vibrations throughout the world. The on-line and distance energy healing programs give anyone, of any level of mediation experience an opportunity to experience the energy and receive the healing they need. The Center offers in-person and on-line meditation programs, monthly New and Full Moon Sacred Fire Ceremonies-Pujas for Peace, private healing sessions, special puja blessing energy transmissions, live streaming webcasts, podcasts, healing music to share divine solutions for creating happiness and abundance of all kinds. Everyone can experience this energy and find the right sacred formula from the ancient knowledge for transforming health issues, family and relationship problems, business issues, negativity, and how to develop a personal relationship with God, in any form that touches your heart.

I first began working with the Center in 2008 as a volunteer and program participant. I'm a professional with over 20 years experience working with non-profit organizations. Since 2012, I have participated in almost every meditation and healing energy transmission program, and served as a full-time volunteer staff. You will love getting to know the residents and staff, on-site and in satellite communities. I’m honored to call them my friends and colleagues, spiritual family. They are some of the kindest, most sincere, professional, talented and gifted healers and teachers of the ancient knowledge you will meet, and will do all they can to support you, your happiness and success.

This organization uplifts and serves individuals as well as its community in truly needed ways. From feeding the hungry and poor, to delivering Christmas and Thanksgiving baskets of foods and gifts to any who ask, to offering a mountaintop retreat space in pristine nature, and of course the sharing of life changing knowledge and enlightenment they teach and embody, this is truly a remarkable organization.

The comment I hear most frequently from visitors to the temple is about the residents there and the atmosphere of love and service they create.

My life would be bleak indeed without the light of Divine Assistants International illuminating a path of hope, even as they embody grace and sacrifice and generosity by devoting their lives to enhancing the the lives of others. They feed the hungry and clothe the poor. They make it possible for engaged students and scholars to translate obscure texts and bring important knowledge to the West. For over a decade, Divine Assistants International's guidance, education and personal inspiration have helped me build and sustain a healthy, productive way of living and working in a chaotic world. I am consistently invited to participate in Divine Assistants International's programs that would be beyond my means without their scholarships. Though my own donations are small, the folks at Divine Assistants International receive them with a grace and gratitude that make me feel like I am making a positive difference. When I can participate in life-changing programs conducted on behalf of individuals and communities in northern California, it makes me feel as though I am part of their wonderful charitable work. Through Divine Assistants International, I am able to believe, and act out of the belief, that I can make a positive difference in the world; that I really can be an agent for positive change. In these times of seemingly endless turmoil, Divine Assistants International's programs and teachers give me faith that goodness has a chance. I am forever grateful for Divine Assistants International's embodiment of generosity, grace, and love.

It's an insurmountable challenge to describe the wide-ranging benefits, insight and experiences I've enjoyed as a direct result of the exemplary guidance, mentorship, teachings and friendship provided to me and my family; parents, stepmom, siblings and recent offspring in our long-standing association and nearly two decades of interaction with the lineage of teachers and teachings so inspiringly-represented, at and by, the Divine Lineage of Laytonville, California.

Almost everything that’s awry with the world today can be traced to a breakdown in unity, community and family.

If communities, states and nations were fairly guided and lovingly mentored by the mores, principles, strength and compassion demonstrated year in and year out by the Divine Lineage's gifted community of representatives we'd all be residing on a much happier, healthier and flourishing planet.

Establishing, teaching and reflecting these core values are the epitome of what the Divine Lineage community strives for, routinely achieves and continues to hold as their inspiration.

It’s not possible to speak too highly of the folks at Divine Lineage, their dedication, mission and results.

It is our collective good fortune to have these people in our lives.

Divine Lineage Healing Center is an extraordinary place and an immensely beneficial non-profit organization for our entire globe. This center is completely dedicated to uplifting humanity and serving the global community through educational programs, cultural enrichment and community outreach.

I had such an amazing experience the first time I went to Divine Lineage Center that I ended up moving there. I am now a dedicated full-time volunteer helping with on-going projects, serving and living in spiritual community. This wonderful center allows for everyone to immerse themselves in spiritual studies in a supportive, peaceful environment surrounded with pristine nature.

This center is very special for many reasons but mainly because it maintains an open-hearted atmosphere, accepting of all spiritual aspirants. It supports and teaches about the basic fundamental principles of life including love, peace, compassion, knowledge, selfless service and bliss. Divine Lineage Center shares knowledge programs on-site as well as offering online programs, making it globally accessible. They are supported entirely by donations yet continuously offer scholarship programs to all dedicated and serious students. There true aim is to help everyone, never turning anyone away. The people who live at and come to this center are truly divine souls who have a real longing to serve the globe and uplift others. We must continue to support people and places like Divine Lineage Healing Center and allow for these good works to reach more and more people. Please help support this center and make it possible for us to continue our mission. Namaste and thank you. Love, Bala Devi

The Divine Lineage Center has greatly impacted my life.

I have been living at the Center for the past three years, working as a full-time volunteer. During this time, I've had countless experiences that have enriched and grown my awareness of the value of compassion and generosity. Here is one example:

Every Christmas, the Divine Lineage Center provides for the low-income community of Laytonville 'Christmas Baskets'. These 'Christmas Baskets' are full of good food, treats, and gifts - everything a family needs to experience a nice Christmas meal.

One year as a volunteer, I had the good fortune of helping to package these 'baskets' and deliver them to families. It was a moving experience. As I distributed the food, I saw how many of the items like eggs, a turkey, fruit, were things I had easily taken for granted in the past. I'd always enjoyed Christmas meals without thinking of the possibility of not being able to. It was humbling, and working in a group with other volunteers made me feel like I was part of something worthwhile. It was a win win - humbling, heart opening, and authentically community building.

I've come to experience that what I felt in the instance above, is characteristic of all works that I've been involved with during my three years at the Center.

Whether you are a spiritual seeker or someone who just wants the opportunity to do some good in the world, the Divine Lineage Center is a place to contact. As an organization they exclude none, and focus their attention as a priority on those in need in all aspects of life.

I have been participating in both in-person and remote meditation and healing events lead by the master healers of the Divine lineage since 2006 and have experienced levels of soul healing and transformation that continue to unfold and uplift my life and well as the lives of my family members.

It is rare to find a community of human beings working together from many places around the world to help raise the consciousness of humanity.

The Divine Lineage is a beautiful and inspiring model for how people can create together with the single focus of serving others.

The center is a non-religious, spiritual community of individuals committed to serving and uplifting humanity. This non-profit center welcomes all people in need of healing, worldly and spiritual healing and desiring to uncover and fulfill their life purpose.

Since 2012 I have been a seva (service) volunteer at the Divine Lineage. These past five years I have been a part of the Divine Lineage staff has continued to deepen my experience of the Divine Lineage Center as a place where people from all walks from life are received with deep love and have the ability to heal and awaken their soul spark in ways our human mind's can never imagine or fully comprehend.

The Divine Lineage Healing Center, run by Divine Assistants International is a place of peace and healing that is second to none. The people working there have dedicated their whole life to the service of others and share healing knowledge that is comparable to nothing else I've seen so far. The many times I've been there I always came back refreshed and ready to take on more of the challenges that our live has in store for us these days.

But not only are the beautiful people there are teaching powerful healing knowledge they also support the people who have hardly anything to live by feeding the homeless and poor in the surrounding area.

I highly recommend anyone interested in spirituality and selfless service to check out this organization.

Divine Assistants International are an outstanding and unique non-profit. I don't know of any non-profit who surpasses what they do in terms of their dedication and hard work to uplifting humanity, healing and helping others on a local and global scale through ancient knowledge practices that transcend any religion. This as well as their gifts of food and much needed items to those in need in the local community. The DAI team work 7 days a week fulfilling all they can to help others, they do an amazing job. I would love to see them being supported to further their beautiful and vital work which is needed in these turbulent times.

The Divine Assistants and the good work they do at the Divine lineage Center is unparalleled in my experience. The good people at Divine Assistants have selflessly and completely given their lives over to the service of all, to , broadly speaking, uplift humanity during this polarized time of great suffering and great awakening, and more practically to provide for the foundational needs (eg food, clothing, love) of those in the impoverished community of Mendocino County where the center is located. In my 20 plus years in the non-profit sector, I have not come across an organization that is so pure in its mission focus. Personally, my life has been transformed through my relationship with Divine Assistants. I cannot recommend this organization highly enough.

A heartfelt organization who really cares about the health and well-being of all human beings. They provide meals, clothes and their love and healing energy for the homeless, poor and undernourished on an on-going basis. Their self-less service and support in their community far surpasses other organizations. They offer on-going in-person and long-distance healing and enlightenment processes. I highly recommend this 24/7, non-stop non-profit organization to anyone who is looking to heal from the past and grow into their future with greater peace, joy and love in their hearts.

I have been a student and supporter of the Master Teachers of DAI, Monika Penukonda and Nityaananda (Dr. Clint Thompson) since 2008. Their hearts are truly as pure as their teachings. My greatest blessing is meeting them and Sri Sai Kaleshwar Swami from Penukonda, India. Swami Kaleshwar left his body in 2012, but his devoted Senior Teachers, Monika and Nityaananda tirelessly remain faithful to Swami and the Ancient Knowledge that Swami taught. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude for their selfless service to humanity. Their charitable works reach far and wide as well as being a huge supporter of their own community for many years. The staff at The Divine Lineage Healing Center (DAI) are dedicated, kind and loving souls that also work tirelessly supporting Monika and Nityaananda, The Center and all who come to visit, and also those who are studying from a distance. It would be a huge blessing for your soul to be able to visit the amazing power spot that is the Divine Lineage Healing Center, but if that is not possible, Monika and Nityaananda have made the Teachings available from a distance. When I am not able to visit the Center, I study online from my home; that too is an incredibly powerful experience. So, visit the Center or take an online course, and please, support them and their good works by making a donation ~ your soul will be very grateful. You can find Divine Assistants International at www.divinelineage.org
With Love and many blessings to all~

I have been attending programs offered by Divine Assistants International since 2005. Each program has been filled with new and profound content from the Palm leaf Manuscripts and each offered a rich and rewarding meditation program and service opportunities. Over the years of programs, I have experienced deep healing which has allowed me to give more of myself to others. To heal ourselves and the world is an important mission in these times. I feel so privileged to be able to develop tools and techniques through Divine Assistants and participate in offerings that bring healing to myself and the globe.

My wife and I have been involved with Divine Assistants International (Divine lineage)for several years and have the highest regard for the entire organization. We recently published an article regarding why we donate and support this organization. Please see excerpt below;

"Not long after we started practicing Yoga over 25 years ago, one of our teachers began offering classes on Yoga philosophy; this became the beginning of our spiritual practice. Not knowing exactly where we were headed we began our search for our true path. In 2006 that path lead us to the teachings of Sri Kaleshwar Swami, Shirdi Sai Baba and the Divine Lineage Healing Center.

If you have been fortunate enough to spend time at the Divine Lineage Healing Center then you have experienced firsthand its powerful healing energy and great beauty. You also know the hard work and challenges that the staff has to contend with every day. Maybe you have done Seva there and have experienced some of these challenges yourself. We are very grateful to the beautiful souls who have chosen to dedicate their lives to taking care of this amazing Power Spot that Swami Kaleshwar created many years ago. We are all benefitting from their hard work and devotion. Even if you have never visited the Temple, you are receiving the blessings from the constant daily activities that take place there; abhisheks, pujas, charity work and much more. Their attention is always on all of us and we are all receiving the blessings from their devotion and their sacrifice. "

All in all this is a highly reputable organization with the best intentions for everyone, world wide. With students around the world, the spirit of love, kindness and living with an open heart is taught and practiced continuously.

Divine Assistants International is what I most often refer to as Divine Lineage - the more time I spend there and with the people there, the more profoundly I understand the importance of living in spiritual community. One of the best things about that is so much of Divine Lineage's work is outreach online offering programs, music (bhajans), spiritual and daily life teaching, healing and so much more. I love that they are making spiritual community available to all even if you cannot be there and being there is its own special blessing. The hard work and dedication of Monika and Nityaananda and all the staff and support both onsite and all around the globe is inspiring and helps sustain me daily. I can see many Divine Lineages starting and growing locally and connecting with each other to help us all help each other on our spiritual path. I can see many open hearted and committed souls whatever there path awakening to the power of spiritual community and supporting each other recognizing that while we may be different candles, we are all one flame. Thanks and love and blessings to all.

I have been visiting and using the services of Divine Assistants International since before they became Divine Assistants International, that is, I began with them in 2009. Their service to the community they serve has always been exceptional. The quality of their work is superlative. They do what they say they will do. I am grateful to them and look forward to taking advantage of their work for a long time to come.
