An Avatar is the physical manifestation of the metaphysical union of Shiva-Shakti. He exists in the state of pure Consciousness (Shiva) even as He manifests as an embodied form (Shakti). Physically, the grace exhibited, and other attributes ranging from hairline to form, all point to a state of Ardhanarishwar, revealing the simultaneous expression and perfect poise of masculine and feminine energies. However, it goes without saying that He is beyond any identity, let alone gender identity. Being in a state of pure Advaita, He carries no concept of ‘I’ or ‘you’ and male or female.
Serial studies of Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s physiology over the years have conclusively shown the endocrine status equivalent to a six or seven year old child. Thus, the observer is likely to conclude that His physiological and psychological state is that of a young child, who does not yet identify with gender in the same way that adults do. However, a significant difference exists between the two. In a child, the concept of gender/sex exists in seed form, though not yet expressed. The Avatar is at the opposite end of the spectrum, having transcended the limiting idea of all duality through the realization of Shuddhadvaita or the pure Oneness of the Self.
His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s medical test report dated 08-09-2014 proves beyond doubt that His male hormone (testosterone) level is far less than even that of a child. At the time of this test, Paramahamsa Nithyananda was a medically fit 38-year-old adult male.
