Who is Yogiraj ?
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. 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.
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 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.
Siddhanath Forest Ashram is open to all sincere seekers 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.
Yogiraj is a TRUE MASTER who, unlike a teacher, awakens you to the next level of spiritual experience. View his worldwide tour schedule here. He can be seen on Youtube anytime for free from the comfort of your living room as well.
Learn more about Mahavatar Babaji’s Kundalini Kriya Yoga and other techniques of the Himalayan Siddhas (perfected masters) taught by the Hamsa Yoga Sangh in the section called “His Teachings”.
These are ancient forms of yoga founded by the Nath Sampradaya and Shiva-Goraksha-Babaji, also known as Gorakshanath.
He is the only Master who imparts SHIVAPAT, in which you experience his Soul Consciousness of thoughtless Awareness, essential to the healing and spiritual evolution of humankind.
Words inform, but Experience TRANSFORMS
What is Shivapat ?
“For those who are receptive and in attunement, Yogiraj imparts dimensions of his own Expanded Still Mind Consciousness of Natural Enlightenment, called Sahaj Samadhi. He gives his Soul in the form of a profound stillness …a profound silence. Experience of this exquisitely heightened awareness produces a fathomless peace beyond normal perception. Guidance in Out-of-Body Awareness and dynamic Transmissions of vital energy that heal and reduce stress are also bestowed upon those sincere seekers who participate in his public sessions.”
Through Kriya Yoga he delivers to humanity an urgent message for all to accept individual responsibility for the genesis of Earth peace, rather than relying on governing bodies to bring about a harmonious state. Kundalini Kriya Yoga is the science of the Evolution of Human Consciousness. It is the swiftest and simplest way to get to God. Kriya Yoga enriches your life step by step, and makes you experience the Godessence within you.
Eloquent and articulate in expression, all that Yogiraj manifests is through the philosophy of Enlightened Action. In the truest and highest sense, the Master (Yogiraj) does nothing, as all of his activities of serving humanity through Yoga are initiated through Divine Consciousness.
For the benefit of humanity, Yogiraj also unveils the ancient art and science of Hamsa Yoga – The Way of the White Swan – an inner, meditative journey leading to spiritual awakening and healing. “Hamsa” literally means Swan, and symbolizes the Soul. The Way of the White Swan also holds special knowledge for those interested in the scientific basis of consciousness. By tracing the illuminating flow of Consciousness through the Cave of Brahma (third ventricle) to the lateral ventricles which are formed like a Swan in flight, insight may be gained as to how a Yogi advances to enlightenment.
Teachers inform you, but a Master TRANSFORMS you!
Experience of the Christ Consciousness inherent in all Souls, a clear mind of bliss, may be realized through Kundalini Kriya Yoga, the sacred science of the Self. These higher levels of consciousness are accessible to each human being through constant practice with an open mind. Gifts of the Soul, are selflessly conveyed through the Sat-Guru as a servant of Humanity and Divinity. Yogiraj is a TRUE MASTER who, unlike a teacher, awakens you to the next level of spiritual experience.
