Our Master, Founder, Meditation...
After practicing yoga from very early age of 12, he decided to leave his family and friends behind to pursue the yogic path and meet his first Yoga Master - Narayan Muni at Jharsuguda Muni Samaj Yoga Ashram. It was here he took his first steps into the Himayalan Tradition. In 1988 he met his second Yoga Master - Swami Niranjan ji to learn the wisdom of the Vedas. There he came across the Jnana Yoga (knowledge), which taught him the important lessons in the path to self-realization. After joining Sri Satya Sai Baba's ashram to learn the spiritual beauty and value of the Karma Yoga (charity work), his life changed completely. There he learned that he had to undergo a heart surgery. That experience made him realise the importance of charity. In the year of 2001 he left home for the last time. The decision to become a monk had been made and his wonderings eventually led to the holy city of Rishikesh. Here once again he met the Himalayan Yoga Tradition, but this time to never leave it again. After studying and practicing yoga under Swami Veda's motherly heart, his greatest guru, and becoming a master in the Himalayan Tradition, he opened his first Yoga School, where we welcome students and seekers from all around the world to carry on India's most important heritage, Yoga.
