Shivakumar Belavadi [Babaji] is a Certified Prenatal & Preinatal Psychologist and Educator and Member of APPPAH – The Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health, which is based in San Marcos, California, USA. He is an initiate of the Shivanetra lineage; an ancient spiritual lineage of India. He received knowledge and training in the tutelage of the Gurus of Shivanetra. Since his early years, he has been guided into spiritual awareness and practices by his father, Sri B.N.Srikantaiya, who is now a monk by the name of Paramahamsa Swami Swaroopanandendra Saraswathi. He has formally studied astrology for 3 years at Bharatiya Jyotisha Samsthana and attained Masters Qualification in Astrology (Jyotisha Acharya). Thereafter, under the guidance of his Guru, he has practiced the nuances and engendered a fusion of Astrology and Garbha Vijnana, the ancient Vedic Prenatal and Perinatal Sciences.
Babaji, as he is referred to, is the Founder & Managing Trustee of the Shivanetra Trust, formally founded in 2014. The Trust provides impetus for all the activities of Shivanetra Lineage. It primarily focuses on imparting learning and the spreading of ancient Indian Wisdom and its expressions through modern sciences – including those from the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Tripura Rahasya. The activities and learning are all based on a Holistic understanding of a Human Being and the linkages with the Universe through both the Vedantic and Tantric approaches.
The learning and practices are based on the foundations of Yantra, Mantra, Chandas, Tantra and their integration. He has done extensive research on the Sri Yantra and applied the knowledge to harness its power for Prenatal and Perinatal Education. A unique methodology called Lahari has been developed by him which has empowered over 1500 babies and parents.
From 2014, Babaji has also been deeply involved in the development of Omnio Future, an organisation given seed to Empower Parents; through a fine Blend of Modern Sciences and Ancient Wisdom. He functions as a Mentor for pre-and perinatal education. Many parents wishing to take up conscious conception, in-utero grooming of a child in the womb and holistic development of infants have been trained and guided by him in the traditions of Shivanetra Lineage.
He has pioneered a campaign called EMBED with a vision of Empowering a Million Babies through Education. The campaign is ongoing and has been recognized for its effectiveness in major events in India like the Hindu Spiritual and Service Fairs in Bangalore and Gurgaon. He has also been instrumental in creating an Integrated Prenatal and Infant Educational curriculum that can be easily adopted across the society. It contains simple and effective daily practices. He has designed and developed packages for Prenatal, Preconception and Infant education thus enabling parents to take up these pristine practices within the home environment.
In an endeavour to empower parents he has been actively spreading awareness about PE Factor (Prenatal Education Factor) in children that could cause particular behaviours and in some cases child disorders. As an extension, he has reinvented a subconscious assessment for children on the basis of an ancient Vedic science called Udbhavana.
Recognising that a radical change in the way we educate our children is at the core of building awareness in the next generation of parents, he has constructed a Global Education Curriculum which fuses Ancient Wisdom and Modern Sciences. It is called Oneness Curriculum and is in use at Omnio Learning Centres. He is a Mentor at Temple of Excellence, a learning centre for unborn children and infants; the first of its kind in the Indian subcontinent.
