Baba Keenaram was a great saint. According to Research Scholars and Historians, Baba Keenaram is the founding father of the ancient Aghora and supposed to be the incarnation of Lord Shiva. Aghoracharya Baba Keenaram was born on Aghor Chaturdashi (Bhadrapad) in 1601 A.D at Ramgarh village of Varanasi district (now Chandauli) of Uttar Pradesh state of India. The entire region became overjoyed when the childless couple Shree Akbar Singh and Mansa Devi finally got their child. After the birth, the child neither cries nor suckled at his mother's breast for three days. After three days when three monks (who were believed to be manifestations of Lord Sadashiva—Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh) came there, took the child in their arms and whispered something into his ears. Amazingly the child began to cry for the first time since birth. It is from that day onwards the Lolark Shashti festival is celebrated as Sanskar(Shashti, usually celebrated in Hindu religion after five days of birth) of Maharaj Shree (Baba Kinaram). With the bless of Hinglaj Mata (Chief Goddess of Aghora) at Lyari district of Balochistan (Pakistan), Baba Keenaram started his spiritual journey with the message of social welfare and humanity. Baba Kaluram known to be "Guru"(spiritual teacher) awakened the consciousness of "Aghor" in Baba Keenaram. Later on baba Keenaram established himself in the city of Varanasi for the service of the people and enlightened them with the ancient wisdom. He has mentioned principles of Aghor in his books *Viveksar*, *Ramgita*, *Ramrasal* and *Unmuniram*. The book called *Viveksar* written by Baba Keenaram is said to be the most authentic treatise on the principles of Aghor. During his tour Keenaram first stopped at the dwelling of "Grihast Saint", Baba Shiva Das for few days. Baba Shiva Das observed Baba Kinarm activities very minutely and was impressed by the extraordinary qualities, suspecting that he is an Avtar or an reincarnation. One day while on way to bath in river Ganges, Baba Shiva Das handed over his entire belongings to the boy Keenaram and hid himself in nearby bushes. He observed that the river Ganges become very restless as the boy approached closer. The level of water started to rise, and suddenly settled down only after touching the feet of Baba Keenaram. Baba Kinaram was known as the biggest saint of the Era of Aghor tradition also known as Lord Shiva tradition. He was the first Founder/Peethadheswar of Baba Keenaram Sthal(headquarter / Pilgrim of Aghors sect., across world) and lived for 170 years. Before he took Samadhi (where his body is buried in a tomb, along with Goddess Hinglaj in Yantra (A Mystical geometrical shape to represent the presence of goddess)'s form, at Baba Keenaram Sthal, he conveyed to his disciples that he will Re-incarnate as 11th Peethadheswar of Krim- Kund (Kinarm Sthal). According to devotees and scholars, Present, 11th, Peethadheeswer / Mahant (Abbot) of Baba Keenaram Sthal Baba Siddharth Gautam Ram is the reincarnation of Baba Keenaram Himself.
