He has broken his penance into four stages. The last stage he had completed in the mountains called Palani Malai in Tamil Nadu. It was that Lord Karitkeya gave him a darshan and rewarded him with a special gift called “Soruba Samadhi”. The Kumarswami temple in Palani was the hot bed of his activities. He travelled as far as China and South America with the help of his yogic powers. To deal with and understand in depth the answer to the questions, “How will people be able to maintain spirituality in their day to day lives in the dark ages ahead (Kali Yuga)?” he had called for a conference of other adepts and msytics in the year 3102 BC.

On the instructions of his guru, he left for China to further the cause for education in the institute run by his Guru there.  Here he mastered the art of “Kaya-Kalp” and obtained a siddhi (mystical power) for it. In China he is known as “Bo-Yang”. Later on he became famous as “Lao-Tzu” and was the co-founder of Taoism in China. The great Chinese philosopher Confucius had met him and was greatly influenced by him. He had many disciples in China who learnt Tantric Yoga from him.

 

IN the year 400 BC Bhognath returned from China on the completion of his mission. He brought with him to India, his most favorite disciple named Yu amongst others. On their travels to India, they stopped at a pass known as Han-Ku where he opened his heart out to his disciples with his deep knowledge. This collection of teachings is known as Tao-Ching or Te-Ching and is available in a book form.

Immediately after returning to India, Bognath toured the Himalayan peaks and visited many a site of pilgrimage here. His heart had missed India. He even visited the Kamrup temple (Kamakhya) in Assam which is famous for its mystical powers connected with the Mother Goddess, Durga. Near the Mount Kailash he composed 7,00,000 verses which are available till today in their abridged form of 7,000 verses. This creation is known as “Bogar Saptha Kandam”. After this he continued to visit the Eastern parts of India, and then took off to the Arab world to study, learn and disseminate knowledge after which he returned to Tamil Nadu.

 

Konkanavar, Karuvoorar, Nandeeswar, Kamala Muni, Satta Muni, Machcha Muni and Sundarandar are some of the better-known disciples of Bhoganath.

After conducting many penances at Sathura and Shiva mountains, Bhognath went to the Sri Lankan island where he conducted a deep penace to attain the darshan of Shiva’s son, Kartikaye. He established a Yantra temple there post, which he returned to Palani and again went into deep penance in which no one was allowed to disturb him. He attained “Soruba Samadhi” as a fruit of his hard work and preservance.

 

Thereafter he returned to Katirgama where he started to spend most of his time. In 211 AD Babaji met him here. He shared with babaji all the experiences of his long lifetime.

 

After having fed his able disciple with the storehouse of knowledge that he possessed, Bhognath dediced to give up his body and leave for other relams. Sometimes it is difficult to digest that such people walked the earth, but they did, and we are grateful for that.
