True Healing & Pure Spirituality
editorial contributions by Lavena, Padma, Jennifer, Abhiraj
A native of Northern India,
Yogiraj Siddhanath is a descendent of the ancient family of Ikshavaku Lord Rama
of the Solar Dynasty. A Solar Master born with the blessings of the Sun, he has
a unique ability to project the qualities of the sun through his radiant
transmissions of light and energy.
Yogiraj is a born Siddha, who,
despite belonging to a royal family with all the comforts of palatial life,
started experiencing spontaneous states of enlightenment (Samadhi) from the age
of three. Upon completing his education at Sherwood College, Nainital, he
surrendered the comforts of his royal life to follow his inner calling as a
He spent his formative years
searching the Himalayas for the legendary face of God. While meditating, he was
empowered by many spiritual supermen, and in 1974, Yogiraj finally encountered
the effulgent Mahavatar Babaji, in the nomadic mystical worlds of the
Himalayas. He was initiated into the sacred practice of Kriya Yoga by this
Divine Being and entrusted with spreading these yogic techniques throughout the
world in service to the spiritual awakening of humanity.
He returned to civilization
offering a first-hand account of this peerless, deathless Yogi-Christ, and in
line with Babaji’s request and blessings, commenced teaching these techniques.
Yogiraj’s account of his adventures through consciousness is described in his
landmark autobiography, Wings to Freedom: Revelations of Babaji and the
Kriya Yoga, as taught by Yogiraj,
is also known as the lightning path to enlightenment. Yogiraj explains that
Kriya Yoga is the science of life force energy control, which develops into a
concentration, and then a meditative practice, which finally merges into states
of Samadhi. He describes Samadhi as the “composed mind,” or the union of the
finite with infinite Consciousness, a natural process of the journey of the
soul towards its parent source, the Spirit.
Amongst the Himalayan Masters,
Yogiraj is one of the rare Siddhas who is broadly accessible to humanity, and
can impart Shivapat (his soul consciousness of a still mind state of
knowingness), Pranapat (karma cleansing breath) and Shaktipat (kundalini energy
transmissions). One’s experience of these transmissions varies according to
their level of receptivity.
Yogiraj often encourages his
audience to drop their minds and be like a child of five — open to the wonders
and magic of the world. This level of innocence and trust allows the barriers
of the mind to dissolve, increasing the absorption and integration of Yogiraj’s
For over 40 years, Yogiraj has
helped millions of people all over the world by freely sharing with them his
enlightened bliss-consciousness (Samadhi), healing transmissions and Kundalini
energy transmissions, and thereby awakening them to the unshakable Truth that
“Humanity is our only religion, Breath, our sole uniting prayer, and
Consciousness, our uniting God.”
On May 10, 2013, Yogiraj was
honored by the highest authority on the Sanatan Dharma in India, with the title
of Yog Maartand (Supreme Sun of Spiritual Splendor) and Chhatrapati Shivaji
Raje Ratna (Precious jewel that further glorifies the legacy of Chhatrapati
Shivaji, and through his spiritual contribution, brings pride to the land and the
people of Chhatrapati Shivaji).
This day, Yogiraj explained that
when a king is not just a king but also a yogi, his sword is transformed from a
weapon of violence into a weapon of spirituality, known as the ‘Gyan Aaseen.’
This sword becomes a powerful weapon to separate the truth from untruth, the
pure from the impure, and the reality from illusion.
Gurumata Shivangini, Yogiraj’s
wife of 35 years, is a powerful yogini in her own right, and is a tireless
support to Kriya Yoga practitioners. Yogiraj and Gurumata Shivangini
demonstrated by example that the path to enlightenment is deeply profound and
achievable even for householders. They have raised two devout children and
celebrate the graces of grandchildren, serve their communities charitably, and
together, envisioned and built the Siddhanath Forest Ashram in Pune, India.
The ashram is the abode of the
largest Mercury Shiva Lingam in the world. This mystical yogic artifact beams
ceaseless love from the Earth Peace Temple to the spiritually-thirsty world,
and serves as a testament to Yogiraj and Gurumata’s commitment and tireless
service to Humanity.
CONTRIBUTIONS TO YOGIC KNOWLEDGE
It was Paramhansa Yogananda’s
seminal work, Autobiography of a Yogi, that introduced Mahavatar Babaji
to the Western world for the very first time. In 2011, Yogiraj advanced the
most-treasured secrets of Babaji’s Kriya Yoga lineage with his ground-breaking
revelation, Babaji: The Lightning Standing Still, divulging publicly,
for the first time, the origins of Babaji, His purpose in the world, and the
secret history of human evolution that He is tending.
The book was recently awarded the Most
Influential Book of the New Millennium Award by the American Authors’
Association, and offers lasting insights into the God-revealing sciences, which
are barely whispered even in the legendary regions of the Himalayas.
Yogiraj stands for the truth that
“at the level of consciousness, humanity is one.” He explains that different
people call this spiritual state by different names. For example, some people
call it Christ-consciousness while others call it Buddha-consciousness.
According to Yogiraj, these are merely differences of names and dialect. He
further shares the essential fact is that these states of consciousness are all
the same, and above these differences in names, is the Nameless One — God
However, due to the limitations of
our minds, this state of consciousness is incomprehensible, and cannot be
described or known. Yogiraj states that although people have achieved this
state, “those who know it tell it not and those who tell it know it not.”
According to him, it is not to be described or spoken about, but only to be
experienced by those Buddhas, Christs and Krishnas, who have reached a
spiritual level where they can merge into the ultimate finale.
Yogiraj’s book on Babaji discusses
the beginning of our present state of creation, the end of the times, the
objective of life on this planet and His purpose as a guide of mankind
throughout the ages, from one world cycle through the next. Each sentence and
paragraph in the book is filled with quantum layers of knowledge.
It will not be wrong to say that
Yogiraj’s book on Babaji is not just a book, but a tool for transformation in
itself. It is so profound and depthful that it alters the reader’s experience
of the surrounding world while reading, and makes the “impossible” seem somehow
unique contribution to the yogic treasury of knowledge also includes:
His legacy of the Luminous Swan, in which our soul resides in the body, as
shown in his documentary ‘Wings to Freedom’;
The Alchemy of Total Transformation transmitted through the medium of
consolidated Mercury Shiva Lingam:
The “Unified Field of Consciousness” experienced as Shivapat, the zero-mind
state of knowingness en masse.
can be said that the Indian scientist Aryabhatt discovered the ‘zero,’ Indian
philosopher Vivekananda spoke on ‘zero’, and it is Yogiraj Siddhanath who makes
one experience the ‘zero.’
Siddhanath demonstrated this Unified Field of Consciousness when he addressed
the United Nations in October 2007. At the UN address, he gave the experience
of the zero-mind state of knowingness, showing what India has to offer to the
world, proving that at the level of Consciousness, Humanity is One.
Yogiraj embarks on his 2013 World Tour through Europe and the United States, he
offers profound personal transformation through his Satsangs (Unified
Consciousness workshops). His workshops include healing-energy transmissions,
intriguing discourses and refreshing insights, which are sprinkled with
delightful humor, and of course, initiation into the most authentic Himalayan
yogic science, Mahavatar Babaji’s Kundalini Kriya Yoga.
the Kriya Yoga Empowerment workshops, Yogiraj offers seekers the sacred
techniques that help in eliminating the seeds of negative karma, purifying the
central nervous system, flushing out the toxins and diseases, attaining a
balance in systems, and dissolving the nervous states to achieve true peace.
techniques help the practitioners attain holistic harmony by nourishing their
body, mind and spirit into balance, relaxing their consciousness into the
‘Now’, and awakening their dormant Kundalini safely and gradually, to achieve
the super-conscious states of Samadhi, which is the ultimate goal of Yoga.
BABAJI — THE EXPERIENCE OF ALL EXPERIENCES
his interviews, Yogiraj has tried to respond to people’s curiosity about the
meetings and guidance he received from Babaji and other immortal yogis on his
spiritual path. In his response, he said he will talk, but he cannot talk much
about his meeting with Babaji as the state is extremely overwhelming. He
discusses his experiences in the first chapter of his book, Wings to Freedom. According to him,
reading that first chapter is more beneficial than just listening to him as it
gives more insight into what he has to say.
said that he met Babaji when he was young, about 27 years old, as he journeyed
to the Himalayas in his trip from the plains, from Hardwar to Rishikesh and
then to Rudraprayag. Then he had the experience of this great Being called
Babaji Gorakshanath. He saw a great light at night, at the confluence of two
rivers, the Mandakini and the Alakhnanda. Where these two rivers met, he had
the experience of Babaji.
shares, “it was morning and I was meditating as an aurora borealis light came
along this river, the confluence and I saw all of these colors and I found that
I was partaking of my own self as I saw this swirling mount of light. At the
still center, I found that I was experiencing my Master and my Supreme-Self. I
am at a loss to describe the experience. I cannot find the words.”
FUTURE OF HUMANITY
says that Babaji has a plan for the future of humanity but it may not be how we
would want it. According to Yogiraj, Babaji plans according to the cosmic,
divine program and is more focused on our consciousness and spirit than it is
on our physical bodies and minds which are very limited and filled with
desires. He further shared that ultimately, it is all about Kriya Yoga, which
is the science of the evolution of consciousness, given for the benefit and
wellness of humanity by the great Shiva-Goraksha Babaji.
expressed that this is his mission and that is what he teaches. His teachings
are not only talking, but they are also experiential, where he gives
transmission of Shaktipat, and also shares with seekers his enlightened state
of still-mind awareness which he offers for each person to experience. At the
same time, he also advises that even though he shares this unique state of
mind, everyone must make his own effort to continue to know and experience the
enlightened and still mind of the yogi, and see his awareness.
of the reasons that he shares his Samadhi with people who come into his contact
and attend the seminars and Satsangs is that it gives them motivation to
practice Kriya Yoga and meditation.
Siddhanath will begin his 2013 U.S. tour in Mid-July visiting the East Coast
followed by Southern California, Seattle and Northern California. He will
arrive in Southern California and host Healing Enlightenment Satsangs and Kriya
Yoga Empowerment Workshops in San Diego/Encinitas and Los Angeles between August 10-18. This will be followed by a
Satsang in the San Francisco Bay area on September 14.
U.S. West Coast tour will conclude with the New Life Awakening Kundalini Kriya
Yoga Meditation Retreat in Carlsbad, CA starting on September 19. For
