About The Teacher
Naren K. Schreiner began his own spiritual search when he was 14, exploring different paths and teachers. Two years later he chose to take initiation into the lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda. At age 18 he became a monk in the Self-Realization Fellowship ashram (monastery) of his Satguru, Paramahansa Yogananda. For the next 14 years, Naren lived as a brahmachari (monastic yogi), studying religion, practicing yoga and living the pure, disciplined life of a monk.
Naren, with the supportive guidance of his spiritual counselors, chose to leave the SRF ashram and expand his lifework. Continuing his life as a ‘freelance yogi’, he founded Sangita Yoga to be a resource for authentic learning and experience of India’s sacred music. He was ordained as a pujari (Hindu priest) of the Kali Mandir Ramakrishna Ashram where he continues to serve as a resident and itinerant pujari. Traveling widely, he brings worship, inspiration and guidance to homes and spiritual communities of different gurus, traditions and affiliations, with the sole desire to serve Divine Mother and Her devotees, thereby honoring his Gurus and beloved India.
Naren has released several albums of sacred music, including his latest release Temple of Silence. Visit: https://narenmusic.bandcamp.com/Source: songofthemorning.secure.retreat.guru
