Samskara Dahana Kriya is a powerful completion technique to burn the emotional, mental, and physical pains you have experienced and stored in your body, bringing peace to yourself and to the world.

We constantly carry wrong patterns about the world like, “Life is out there only to exploit me, cheat me, abuse me”, which is the reason why we are suffering and continuously attract suffering. With Samskara Dahana Kriya, we burn that pattern and create the right image about life and others. With this process, we are initiated into the complete completion with ourselves.


Samskara means “engraved memories” or “engrams”. We carry emotional and mental scars which do not allow us to live with completion in the present. Dahana means “destroying”, and Kriya means “process”. Samskara Dahana Kriya is a process to remove pain patterns within ourselves.


" Understand, the pain of unfulfillment will leave your system if you do Completion, Samskara Dahana Kriya for forty-eight days. The pain of unfulfillment, understand. The pain of unfulfillment which you carry in your life constantly, which started in your life the moment the root pattern started, that will melt down. The more and more beings you cause Completion, the more and more you become complete. The more and more people you cause Completion, the more and more you become complete. The more and more human-beings you lead them to Samskara Dahana Kriya, more and more of your samskaras get burnt. Literally, this process, when you enrich others, enriches you. After ten-fifteen days, the subtle pain patterns will start coming out, erupting out. Completion with all of them, those subtle pain patterns, pain points, leads to deeper and deeper cleansing.

And, I tell you, forty-eight days of Samskara Dahana Kriya will surely give you some Siddhi, some miracle power. You will understand all your sufferings you accumulated very playfully. Playfully you started fighting with the cub; suddenly it has become lion one day, and you call that as ‘suffering’. But it never came without you inviting. It was you were playing with it very playfully, because, at that time, it was cub. You never imagined when it becomes lion it is going to be painful for you. All your sufferings, you were playing with them as cub, saying, ‘so cute, so cute! See this fellow’s teeth; he is trying to bite me. See, this fellow’s tail.’ Even if he runs away, you dragged him to your lap and playing, teasing, literally opening his mouth and putting your finger in his mouth. When he became lion, he tries to do the same; you are shaken.” - Paramahamsa Nithyananda Paramashivam

Scriptural Reference

Completion - A Direct Technique from Mahadeva

From the twenty-second verse of Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, which is part of Shiva Sutras. Shiva Sutras is a compilation of sixty-four books like Guru Gita, Kularnava, Mahanirvana, Vijnana Bhairava, Spandakarika, etc. All these put together is called “Shiva Sutras” which was delivered to Devi by Mahadeva.

Sankhya Yoga

The moment a person opens his mouth to speak, only whatever he is full of, only that will come out.

For H.H Paramahamsa Nithyananda, He says, “That is why... If somebody comes and sits with me, whatever questions they ask, the moment I start speaking to them, it will only be about Completion, Listening.”

Similarly, He mentions “I can hundred percent be sure, Krishna belongs to Mahanirvani Akhada and he was filled with Sankhya! That is why, the moment he opens his mouth to start speaking to Arjuna, he says Sankhya Yoga.” (The first chapter of the Bhagavad Gita is Sankhya Yoga)

Sankya is the science of liberated thinking, and it came from Kapila Muni.


These are the steps for the process:

  • 1. Sit and write all your pain incidents and patterns - physical pains, mental pains, emotion pains, psychological pains


  • 2. Then re-live them in your inner space with your eyes closed - at least 5 times

Eyes closed

  • 3. Re-live and relieve them with a mirror - at least 5 times

Relive in Mirror

  • 4. Sit with another person and share. Share at least 5 times. You need to see each other to do this. If you do this online, do it via Skype/ Hangouts etc.


  • 5. Listen to at least 5 persons' stories to help them through their pain.


48 days of Samskara Dahana Kriya will get rid of all your pain patterns. The pain of unfulfillment will leave you if you do Samskara Dahana Kriya everyday for 48 days. So many pain patterns which you will not catch, which you will not smell, which are sitting inside you - you will catch them. Especially, while you are sharing, your awareness is really high. There are tons of unsaid reasons why you should sit and share the pain patterns that are fresh in you.

Start with the most painful memories and recall all the unpleasant memories. The more and more beings you cause completion for, the more and more you become complete. When you enrich others with this process, it enriches you.

Whoever wants to spread peace in the world, do good to the world, remove the sufferings of humanity: It is the most powerful Viraja Homa - Homa for Purification that you can do. On the 48th day, you achieve the space of Viraja - Pure Inner Space.

“Before the Samskara Dahana Kriya starts, everyone should take an oath with integrity that they will not misuse or abuse the information they receive during the Samskara Dahana Kriya.” “Second, the whole Completion, all the steps should be followed, including sharing with five lives and listening to five lives.” “Third, forty-eight days it should be done continuously; or, one or two days if you miss, make it like in one day itself two sessions, morning and evening...!" Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam


Heal Your Past

“Till the Grass Grows on the path you walk every day, please understand, that is the signal; the ground on which you are walking every day, the grass should not die! Then you don’t have pain body! If the grass is dying on the path you are walking, be very clear, still the heat of the pain is there in your body. Pain exists in you as a unique heat and vibes, unique vibration. The moment you put your foot in any place, even the grass does not grow in that place any more. Till the grass starts growing in a place you walk, you should do Samskara Dahana Kriya.” - Paramahamsa Nithyananda Paramashivam

Inner Peace leads to World Peace

Whoever wants to spread peace in the world, do good to the world, remove the sufferings of humanity, do Samskara Dahana Kriya and spread the Science of Samskara Dahana Kriya. - Paramahamsa Nithyananda Paramashivam

Achieve the Space of Viraja

Samskara Dahana Kriya is the most powerful homa you will perform for purification. That is the most powerful Viraja Homa you can do. Viraja Homa means, homa for purification. The forty-eighth day you achieve the space of Viraja, pure inner-space. - Paramahamsa Nithyananda Paramashivam

Official Ritual of the Nithyananda Sangha

“If I have to declare some ritual as the official ritual of our Nithyananda Sangha, I will declare Samskaara Dahana Kriya as the official ritual of our Nithyananda Sangha. Means – The moment child is born, the mother should do this Kriya for eleven days at least.

The moment the mother is pregnant, throughout the pregnancy, nine months she should do this ritual. The moment child is put in the school, the child should do that Kriya for at least eleven days. The moment the child attains puberty, the child should do at least twenty-one days this Kriya. Whenever you are depressed, you should sit and do this Kriya.

If you are getting married, before the marriage at least forty-two days both the persons who are going to get married, both of you should do this Kriya. Before you are planning to conceive, you should do this Kriya at least twenty-one days.

Before your death, you should do at least forty-two days. If you are doing this Kriya from the time you are born, again and again, you will know when are you going to die, and you will fix the date and you will simply plan, and do the Kriya, and leave the body!

Now I am making this as the Smrithi, the Code of Conduct, for Nithyananda Sangha: Every day, in all our temples, all our ashrams, all our Centres, in the Rudra Homa Agni, in the fire of Rudra Homa, the people’s samskaras should be offered. All the people who are practicing the Samskara Dahana Kriya in Bidadi, if you are doing it late night, next day those papers, those karmas, those samskaras, should be offered into the Rudra Homa Agni. All our temples, ashrams should do this every day sincerely. I really expect all our temples also should start doing Rudra Homa. All our temples also should start doing Rudra Homa. Please understand, all our temples also should start doing Rudra Homa. Every temple should start doing. It is possible! Every day people should come to the temple and do Samskara Dahana Kriya, tear those karmas, patterns, and put it in a corner where you should keep a box for all the offerings to be put in the Havan, Homa. Let the people put those papers, their karmas and go. You take it and offer it into the fire, the Rudra Homa fire. In places like Bidadi, the fire should be all the time kept so that whenever people want they can come and sit and do Samskara Dahana Kriya and offer their sheet, offer their karmas and patterns in the fire, Agni, and go.

And you can also do Samskara Dahana Kriya with the deities. You can first share with Ganesha, then go and share with Venkateshwara, then share with Lakshmi, then share with Mahadeva, then share with Devi, then, finally, share with Subramanya, and, ultimately, with Guru. Offer the Samskaras, the patterns into the Agni, the Rudra Homa Agni, and go. This should become the official ritual, this should become the official ritual of the Sangha all over the world. We should be known as the temple removing samskaras and patterns. We should be known as the temple removing all the bad samskaras and pain patterns.” - Paramahamsa Nithyananda
