Contributed, with humility and
without attracting attention, to the field of Indian religions,
philosophy and spiritual practice. Founded Hinduwebsite.com
in 2000 to counter the negative propaganda against Indian
religions and provide authentic information about them to
the people who seek information on the Internet. Inspired
by the vision of Swami Vivekananda, increased the global
reach of Hinduism and related religions, bringing to light
the hidden knowledge of the ancient dharmas for the general
public. So far about 100 million people from all over the
world visited the website. It still attracts millions of
visitors each year, and ranks high in Google searches. It
is funded and maintained entirely by the founder without
any outside assistance. Jayaram also founded saivism.net,
allsaivism.com, hinduismlive.com, etc. Jayaram’s work is
appreciated by many people in the world through emails and
Jayaram does not believe in religious bigotry or narrow-minded approaches to religious
practice or studies. People must have the freedom to choose their faith according to
their personal needs and preferences because the choice of religion is a purely personal matter.
There are no universally good or bad religions. Fanaticism is an excessive attachment to one's faith and
a form of delusion and diversion for the soul. Each religion has a few divine components and a few purely human
components, which are largely human inventions shaped by human egos for secular
or worldly ends or to assert authority or instill fear and submission. It is up
to people to choose what is good for them and their salvation. All religions are
vulnerable to corruption and degradation due to the vulnerabilities of human mind.
Hence, it is the duty of wise people to protect and preserve their respective faiths
and core values and doctrines. Each religion has a spiritual core, which is
pure and ancient but overshadowed by its popular base where much of the dilution and corruption happens.
Religions will thrive as long as their spiritual core is protected and guarded by
their philosopher guardians and spiritual practitioners. Jayaram is engaged in this
effort to preserve the purity of India’s santana dharmas.
Went through numerous
spiritual experiences at the age of 22, after the completion of his post graduation.
They were spontaneous and from out of the
blue. They lasted for several months, during which he kept seeing visions
of numerous deities, golden Buddhas, Ganeshas, celestial
beings and ancient teachers in the subtle realms, past lives and visions
of past and future. Since it was proving too much for the unprepared novice,
he sought guidance from spiritual people including a Sufi saint,
who spent 14 years in total silence and dissolved himself in the
oneness of God. The saint advised him to return to normal life and refocus upon
his worldly goals, promising to ensure him a blessed life.
Although he followed the saint’s advice and turned his attention
to worldly matters, his interest in the deeper aspects of
life remained intact and he kept learning and progressing
inwardly. The saint showed him that spirituality had no religion
and in the end, we all entered the same pure consciousness.
Jayaram is prolific writer. He writes regularly and publishes his work on various websites. His writings can be found at the following websites
