“Give me the Heart of a Servant,Tender and Faithful and True
Fill me with Love then use Me O Lord,So that The World can see You”
Since childhood, my personal interest was to know the truth about “The Universe”. “The supreme power” or nature. I had a constant whole hearted desire to study thoroughly the Ancient Indian Scripture like, VEDAS, UPNISHEDAS, PURANAS and many other holy writings, as scripture provide us knowledge.
On 10th August 1988, I had first arrive in Rishikesh for spiritual study. At this time I was working Delhi in a multinational company as an assistant manager with a very attractive salary package. My target was to complete the spiritual study which was only for one year and then after I was to rejoin my profession. After a year I could not go back and its been over 30 years since I left. All these years passed and I’m still in Rishikesh, in the foothills of the Himalayas, practicing, experiencing, teaching & still learning spirituality and Yogic Science. This sacred city is very well known for its spirituality and for spiritual study.
Under the guidance of my spiritual teachers, in addition to Indian scriptures, I also studied the Holy Bible, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Sikhism and many other philosophies and theologies I became a yogi through living and studying under the accordance of yoga. I lived the life of a traditional yoga for 12 years with my spiritual masters, living in different parts of the Himalayan range. Under the love and kind guidance and life time experiences of my gurus I learned many types and styles of yoga, the yoga sciences and therapy, meditation, and Ayurvedic medicine.
As you know, yoga is a very vast field. Many Sciences are hidden in it. In 14 years, the maximum knowledge which I could gain from my Gurus and masters, I gained. Then I came back to Rishikesh and taught Indian scriptures to everyone from foreigners to villagers in various Ashrams.
I had many Spiritual Gurus and masters; all of them loved me and enjoyed seeing my deep Interest in spiritual things. But most of the time I, have spent with “THE VISHVA GURU, YOGSAMRAT, MAHAMANDLESHWAR MUNISHANANDJI”. Who was the founder of international Yoga & Meditation Institute at Rishikesh, and lived for 104 years.
I also worked for the same institute as a Yoga researcher. I am very thankful to all my spiritual teachers and masters who nourished me with their life time experience and with the great knowledge they had. In the beginning I’d come to Rishikesh for one year only with a single target of study and to find that I had immersed myself so deep in “yoga” that 30 years have been passed.
Presently, my goal is to spread the real knowledge of yoga throughout the world. In these modern times yoga is typically marketed for gain, and means to an end. Such as, meditation is commonly taught for stress reduction purposes to remove stress but it would have a more profound effect if we understand it as a practice into Bliss, and Eternal Peace.
I want to share this Truth. Yoga in its truest form is an act of worship, to the ultimate truth- God Yogis need the knowledge of this worship to understand that each practice in yoga is more sacred than just health; rather the yogi can find true the true yoga. Yoga is to unite with God and union with God is to know the Truth about the universe.
Here the God blesses you.
