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 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!

The Divine Lineage Center is a place of deep healing and transformation. I have been coming there for many years and every time I am there I receive more then I could ever imagine. It is a true power spot on the globe. The vibrations and deep peace that can be found, even as construction is happening and wild turkeys are running around, you can't find that kind of peace and healing just any where. It is special. The staff are the most dedicated and generous souls. They go out of their way to accommodate visitors, yet seem to know exactly the right seva job to help you grow into your own helping nature. It is easy to see and feel the love and commitment to serving humanity that they embody. These folks live their lives in service. I have seen first hand how much work it is to put on the programs that they put on. And they do it with joy and love and humor. They are working day and night because they are 100% committed to every students success. They protect and share the ancient knowledge with utmost integrity. It is really so refreshing in a world where the sacred things and personal responsibility are not always valued. I feel infinitely blessed to be a part of this community and shared commitment to humanity. Thank you!

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

I give to Divine Assistants International because I believe whole-heartedly in the work they do. This organization not only supports its community by providing food to local food banks and cooking meals and offering essential items to those in need, but it serves the global community as well by giving scholarships to students from all over the world to study meditation and spiritual healing knowledge. And it supports the Peace Fires movement (peacefires.org), which invites people from around the world to join together to meditate and pray for world peace – an effective and real remedy to the chaos and confusion of our times. Divine Assistants International is deeply dedicated to bringing healing, joy, and love to the entire globe through a myriad of programs, and my life has been thoroughly enriched by my affiliation with them.

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 experiences with the Divine Lineage Family over the past 10 years or so,has been a step by step journey into the evolutionary development of my soul. Continually moving toward going deeper into myself and closer to embodying the grace of Divine Energy.
What the teachers and staff offer is always given with warmth, generosity and authentically.
I am very grateful for being able to receive so much, right here in my own home, via Long Distance Programs through my computer...

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 recently took an online course with Divine Lineage. It was so in-depth and soulful, i know i will listen to the recording over and over again to fully get everything that is there. 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 and Divine Assistants help those in need of food, blankets, and other basic necessities in their local community. In addition, it is their mission to bring divine love, awakening and higher states of consciousness to individuals and communities world wide. Their efforts on behalf of world peace, spiritual education, and healing are tireless and filled with the spirit of unity and charity. I enjoy volunteering for them because i know my efforts there will meaningfully contribute to a future world of peace, love and understanding.

I also know that every penny is put to work for the community and projects which support their mission. They live an austere and disciplined life, not taking for themselves, but doing for others with all they have.

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'd like to thank them and D.A.I., from the bottom of my heart, for the wisdom they imparted and for the profound direct experiences I gained and continue to gain from the daily practices.

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.

The Divine Lineage Center is a one-of-a-kind meditation and retreat center. The staff, volunteers, donors, and friends are among the most dedicated, open-hearted, and committed people working selflessly (day and night) to ease suffering and uplift humanity. The Divine Lineage’s programs reach people of all backgrounds, faiths, and geographies to help bring personal healing, create peace, and make lasting transformational change possible.

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.
