An Illumined Being with direct experiences of Mahavatar Babaji Gorakshanath, Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath spent his early years in the Himalayas with the great Nath Yogis in whose presence he was transformed, realizing the unity of all Yogas and Religions. A Master of Kundalini Kriya Yoga, Yogiraj’s message to Humanity is EARTH PEACE THROUGH SELF PEACE. In conveying his message, Yogiraj goes beyond the limited reach of words and offers the grace of direct Experience. Yogiraj will bless Purnima Desai, her institution Shikshayatan and students at the 25th anniversary celebrations of the institution on the auspicious occasion of Guru Purnima on Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 21. He will hold healing and enlightenment workshop on Saturday from 4 to 9 P.M. and give lessons in Kriya Yog empowerment from 1 to 6 P.M. at Community Center, 143-09 Holly Avenue, Flushing, NY 11355.
Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath was born in Gwalior (northern), India on May 10, 1944, and is descended from the ancient family of Ikshavaku Rama of the Solar Dynasty. Though he belonged to a royal family, with all the comforts of palace life, he was a born siddha and went into spontaneous enlightened states from the age of 3.
During his childhood days, Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath was aware of his larger self dwelling in his helpless little body. From the age of three, he would sit long hours in meditation and have visions of Shiva, Krishna, Rama and Christ. He took his schooling at Sherwood College, Nainital, situated in the lower mountains of the Himalayas. There, he would utilize the later hours of the night to move into profound states of meditative consciousness.
In his early years, he was blessed with the presence of great Himalayan yogis and divine beings. Spiritually realized from a very young age, he cast away his royal ties after completing his educational responsibilities and fulfilled his calling as a yogi. An Illumined Being with direct experiences of Mahavatar Babaji Gorakshanath, Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath spent his early years in the Himalayas with the great Nath Yogis in whose presence he was transformed, realizing the unity of all Yogas and Religions.
A Master of Kundalini Kriya Yoga, Yogiraj’s message to Humanity is EARTH PEACE THROUGH SELF PEACE. In conveying his message, Yogiraj goes beyond the limited reach of words and offers the grace of direct Experience. While traveling as a teenager in the Himalayas, Yogiraj was blessed and empowered by the spiritual supermen of the Himalayan caves. His divine transformation flowered after his deep and personal experiences with the supreme yogi- Christos known as the Mahavatar (Supreme Spirit Incarnate) Shiva- Goraksha-Babaji (the same mentioned by Paramahansa Yogananda in his “Autobiography of a Yogi”).
With these blessings he was charged with the duty to spread the teachings of “Earth peace through Self peace” and spiritual evolution of Consciousness through the divine science of Kundalini Kriya Yoga meditation. Besides the Himalayan Masters, he is one of the rare Siddhas known to us who is broadly accessible and can impart direct Shivapat, means his soul consciousness of a still mind state of knowingness, sowing the seeds of peaceful co-existence.
He bestows three distinct graces:
1. Shaktipat – Healing energy transmission, where he transmits his kundalini energy.
2. Pranapat – Cleanses your karma from the root cause, where he breathes through your breath.
3. Shivapat – Shares his own Samadhi (still-mind state of soul awareness), which boasts your spiritual evolution. This is the true genius of Yogiraj. The sincere will receive this dimension of his soul consciousness of natural enlightenment (Unmani Avastha) through direct experience as to what true Yoga is rather than through intellectual exploration.
Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath’s unique contribution to the yogic treasury is his work in
1) The “Unified Field of Consciousness” which is Shivapat, the zero-mind state of knowingness.
2) His legacy of the Luminous Swan as to where our soul Consciousness resides in the body; for the first time ever documented in his film ‘Wings to Freedom’.
3) The Alchemy of Total Transformation via the medium of consolidated mercury, also called the elusive ‘philosophers stone’, which is a closely guarded secret of the Himalayan Masters. Yogiraj addressed the Global Ethics Committee of the United Nations, New York, in October 2007. It is said that Indian scientist Aryabhatt discovered the ‘zero’; Indian philosopher Vivekananda spoke about it; and Indian Yogi Gurunath Siddhanath gave it, showing what India has to offer to the world citizenry and proving that at the level of divine consciousness, humanity is one.
For over 40 years, Yogiraj has healed and transformed millions all over the world with his transmissions of kundalini shakti energy and has shared freely his own Samadhi (enlightened state) of peaceful bliss-consciousness. Yogiraj has taught yoga and spirituality to world leaders and has given experiential discourse before the United Nations, yet he prefers nothing more than to sit in the simple pristine forests and mountains and meditate on God in tranquility.
In that spirit, Yogiraj built with his wife the Hamsa Yoga Sangh Mother Center, the Siddhanath Forest Ashram in the gentle valley of Sita Mai outside the city of Pune, in the Simhagad region. His wife of 35 years, Gurumata Shivangini (affectionately called Ayie or “Mother” by Yogiraj’s students) is a powerful yogini in her own right. Together they have raised two children and are now proud grandparents, demonstrating by example that it is not necessary to live as a renunciate in order to meditate and achieve enlightenment.
They spend much time at the Siddhanath Forest Ashram, which is also available to all sincere seekers worldwide to come and rejuvenate spiritually. It is a Siddha Peeth (land spiritualized by the shakti of a spiritual master), a Tapo-Bhoomi (kundalini power center), and holds one of the earth’s most powerful Earth Peace temples. This temple houses the largest known solid parasmani (alchemical mercury) Shivalinga, which alchemically transmutes the mercurial mind which meditates upon it into a still mind of enlightened Consciousness.
Hamsa Yoga Sangh, a non-profit organization was born in the late 1970’s by Yogiraj and his wife Gurumata Shivangini to inspire spiritual evolution through the pristine ancient meditative practices of Kriya Yoga, Hamsa Yoga and Siddhanath Surya Yoga. Hamsa Yoga Sangh seeks to awaken a deeper understanding of the harmony underlying all religions and thus unfold the blossom of love which unites all humanity.
The practices of Yoga are universal in spirit and complement all faiths and religions. The Kriya Yoga originated by Shiva-Goraksha- Babaji, the Himalayan Mahavatar, is the crest jewel of spiritual techniques, flowering the practitioner with lightning speed into the likeness of one’s own divinity. Kriya Yoga is rightly called the lightning path, and exemplifies the glorious Indian heritage of pure spirituality.
Yogiraj holds public events to expand awareness and invite more souls to awaken to their birthright. These open gatherings with the master are a chance to see the yogi face-to-face and feel the spiritual energy which radiates from his presence. These events include Satsangs, Kundalini Kriya Yoga Empowerments, and New Life Awakening Retreats. A Satsang is an evening of spiritual communion with a realized master.
The benefits of attending one of Yogiraj’s satsangs include the healing of mental and emotional traumas through interdimensional energy transmissions called Pranapat and Shaktipat, and a temporal impartations of expanded bliss-awareness called Shivapat. Those who are receptive will experience the at-one-ness of all beings as well as a calm, still mind, bereft of thoughts, with the attendant feelings of bliss and joy.
These experiences will strengthen your resolve to practice the discipline of yoga as taught by Yogiraj, or simply to keep doing what you are already doing better. A Kriya Yoga Empowerment is an initiation into Mahavatar Babaji’s Kriya Yoga by personal empowerment from Yogiraj, enabling the practitioner to experience the expanded still mind spheres of consciousness and bliss: one’s natural state of enlightenment. Every cell becomes oxygenated and flooded with pranic life.
The Hamsa Yoga New Life Awakening Retreats are very special events, where sincere seekers have the opportunity to experience personal one-on-one time with the master, learn powerful yoga meditation techniques, recharge themselves and make significant progress in their spiritual practice. The peaceful setting is Ideal for removal of stress and tension.
During these retreats, Yogiraj offers the 3 distinct graces of a True Living Master which awakens you to the next level of spiritual experience: the spiritual impetus of Pranapat breathing through your breath; continuous healing transmissions of Shaktipat energy; and the sharing of his own Samadhi – an enlightened state of peaceful blissconsciousness. Yogiraj’s 2013 World Tour includes a Satsang – Healing & Enlightenment Workshop and a Kriya Yoga Empowerment Workshop in New York City, and a New Life Awakening Retreat in Catskill Mountains NY.
