Yoga Guru Shri Siddhartha Shiv Khanna ( योग गुरु श्री सिद्धार्थ शिव खन्ना)

About The Teacher

Born in an influencial, traditional and modern Hindu family in New Delhi, I was introduced to meditation and chanting at a very young age along with family household practice of Bhakti Yoga (Yoga of surrendering oneself to God) and Karma Yoga (Yoga of selfless acts of goodness towards everyone and everything). Having gone to one of the best private school of the nation I became a professional swimmer and also went on to pursue a degree in fashion retail and merchandise management after having spent 18 months in Australia after i turned 18. The big change happened when i was invited to take part in a reality show called Big Switch in india. It was a struggle of a unique kind and I won the show. The biggest win was the changes it brought in me after my nonstop interaction with the kids from slums during the duration of the show. I went on to handle my father's construction business and I also became the business head of a fashion label for a short bit after this. All of that and much more at the age of 25, in a way i had it all and yet happiness wasnt a permanent state of existence. This made me think and realize that there have to be things beyond money, beyond fame, beyond power since none of this can keep me happy, there must be something which will keep me happy all the time. During these times of wanderings and wonderings, I met Samara Kamui Bodhisatva on an online forum and he initiated me to meditation and taught me many important techniques of healing myself and others.

There after two very big events took place. The first one was the "Holy Royal Snan of Mauni Amavasya during the Mahakumbh Mela", this was the first time in life i felt god inside of me and outside of me, we hindus believe that by taking a bath in the meeting point of the 3 ancient rivers of india during the Brahma Mahurta (moment of creation) when Jupiter is in the 1st sign Aries and the Sun and the Earth’s moon are in the 10th sign Capricorn; or Jupiter in the 2nd sign Taurus and the Sun in Capricorn, a person gets Moksh (freedom from all suffering, freedome from the cycle of birth death and rebirth, freedom from the universal laws of space, time and karma), at that moment was perhaps my first real taste of yoga, it was a union and of the body with the mind, the mind with the soul and the souls with Shiv consciousness and no words are sufficient enough to express that infinite blisswhich i felt in each single breath and moment of existence. The second big and perhapsthe final step towards buuryig the old step was more intense in terms of what would happen. In Kedarnath jyotirling, high in the upper himalayas an epiphany happned (perhaps ill tell you the full story one day), this sealed my fate, it was a divine intervention. I came back and renounced my work. After, I studied and practiced Raja yoga (the yoga of the self) under the guidance of my Guru ji from India Shri Yogi Anoop ji. At this time i was doing only two things, practicing and studying, from 6 till 11 i would do asan practice and then rest of the day i would read scriptures and ask questions from my guruji. Gyan Yoga (Yoga of knowledge) was feeding my brain and Raja Yoga was feeding my body but much too my joy life was completely changing on physical, mental and spiritual level. I became balanced, stable and was closer than ever to the self realization and god realisation. Then my guruji felt the need for me to start teaching others. In my present i spend most of my time assisting seekers find peace and reach the ultimate state of bliss. From time to time im busy in expounding the ancient scriptures and view points from my own expeiences to seekers so that they may achieve self realisation and god realisation and reach the ultimate goal of the soul of mergence with Shiv Consciousness.
