BiographySwami Sivananda Radha is a prominent Canadian Hindu figure and author on Hinduism.
She was born Ursula Sylvia Hellman on March 20, 1911, in Berlin, Germany and demonstrated psychic ability when only a child. Her first marriage ended abruptly when her husband, Wolfgang was killed by the Gestapo for helping Jewish friends leave Germany.
Against many odds, she survived the war and in 1951 emigrated to Canada settling in Montreal. From an early age, she had begun to question the meaning of life, and it was this search that took her to India, after her guru, Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh appeared to her during a meditation. Swami Sivananda initiated Sylvia into the sacred order of sanyas, the path of renunciation, in 1956. Upon her return to Canada, she worked unceasingly to fulfill the promise she had made to Sivananda. In 1988 in an interview with Hinduism Today Magazine she described her mission, "The main thing I try to do is have my students bring quality into their lives. She thought that her dancing would be given up as part of her renunciation; however, Swami Sivananda had other ideas. The science of yoga is the heart of Swami Radha's teaching, but she contended that before any yoga instruction can begin, there must be a foundation of clarity. In 1970 Swami Radha established the Association for the Development of Human Potential in the U.S. Today, the ashram she founded in 1963, Yasodhara, is carrying on Swami Radha’s work under the enlightened leadership of Swami Radhananda.
TeachingsOn the advice of her guru, Swami Sivananda Saraswati of Rishikesh, Swami Radha's major focus was to interpret the ancient yogic teachings of the East so that they could be understood and applied in the daily life of Westerners. For over 40 years the Ashram has been offering an intensive three-month program (675 days) called the Yoga Development Course as an an in-depth introduction to the major branches of yoga and a foundation in personal and spiritual development. Students approach the fundamental goal of yoga – the union of individual consciousness with Cosmic Consciousness through a variety of Yoga practices. Her teachers can be found offering classes, and in places living in small communities, across North America, in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
When he was a child, his father renounced the worldly life to lead a religious life, leaving his twenty-eight year old wife with the responsibility of raising Gopi Krishna and his two sisters. He failed to pass the examination to enter college, and he took a lowly job and established his family.
Over some years, he developed the ability to sit for a period of hours in concentration without any discomfort and then had his first spontaneous Kundalini awakening in 1937 at the age of 34 which occurred while he was visualizing "an imaginary Lotus in full bloom, radiating light" at the crown of his head. Suddenly, with a roar like that of a waterfall, I felt a stream of liquid light entering my brain through the spinal cord. Entirely unprepared for such a development, I was completely taken by surprise; but regaining my self-control, keeping my mind on the point of concentration. Shortly after the initial awakening of the Kundalini, Gopi Krishna experienced a continuous "luminous glow" around his head and began having a variety of psychological and physiological problems and great suffering. Later he learned to appreciate the process and was aware that a fundamental change has taken place in him after his experience of Kundalini. Without any effort on my part and while seated comfortably on a chair, I had gradually passed off, without becoming aware of it, into a condition of exaltation and self-expansion similar to that which I had experienced on the very first occasion, in December 1937, with the modification that in place of the roaring noise in my ears there was now a cadence like the humming of a swarm of bees, enchanting and melodious, and the encircling glow was replaced by a penetrating silvery radiance, already a feature of my being within and without. Gopi Krishna's account contains a wealth of clear descriptions of the variety of mental states he passed through in his encounters with the Kundalini energy.
Every night during sleep I was transported to a glittering fairyland, where garbed in luster I glided from place to place, light as a feather.
Gopi Krishna's graphic accounts of his experiences stand out as among the clearest journals documenting a spiritual transformation. Gopi Krishna's teachings and account concentrate on the phenomenon of Kundalini awakening, the accompanied symptoms and the resulting transformations. Through meditation, and various esoteric practices, such as kundalini yoga, laya-yoga, and kriya yoga, the kundalini is awakened, and can rise up through the central nadi, called sushumna, that is located inside or alongside the spine. Harbhajan Singh was born on August 26, 1929 into a Sikh family in Kot Harkarn, district Gujranwala, in the province of Punjab (British India).
Most influential of Harbhajan Singh's relations in his early development was his paternal grandfather, Bhai Fateh Singh. Harbhajan Singh's schooling was interrupted in 1947 by the violent partition of India, when he and his family fled to New Delhi as refugees. Harbhajan Singh served in the Revenue Department, where his duties took him all over India. Throughout his life, Harbhajan Singh continued his practice and pursuit of yogic knowledge.
In the mid-1960s, Harbhajan Singh took up a position as instructor at the Vishwayatan Ashram in New Delhi, under Dhirendra Brahmachari. Although a promised university position as director of a yogic studies department did not materialize because of the death of his sponsor, Harbhajan Singh the Yogi made a considerable impact in the predominantly Anglo-Saxon metropolis. Late in 1968, bearded and turbaned Yogi Bhajan went to visit a friend in Los Angeles, but ended up staying to share the teachings of Kundalini Yoga with the already longhaired members of the hippie counterculture of California and New Mexico. Yoga practice and philosophy is generally considered a part of Hindu culture, but Yogi Bhajan distinguished himself as a teacher and practitioner of the yoga of the Sikh gurus. While it proved somewhat controversial in some circles of Sikhism, Yogi Bhajan was adhering to the fundamental, empowering roots of Sikh teachings. While adhering to the three pillars of Patanjali's traditional yoga system: discipline, self-awareness and self-dedication, Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan does not condone extremes of asceticism or renunciation. Yogi Bhajan became known as a master of Kundalini Yoga, but it was actually Raj Yoga, the yoga of living detached, yet fully engaged in the world that typified his life and teachings. In 1969, Yogi Bhajan established the 3HO (Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization) Foundation to further his missionary work.
For some of the free-spirited hippies, the Yogi Bhajan's discipline was more than they could take. Yogi Bhajan incorporated the storyline of the dawning new age into his teachings, a case of melding Western astrology with Sikh tradition. Some of Yogi Bhajan's earliest students in Los Angeles had spent time in New Mexico influenced by aboriginal, especially Hopi teachings. Seven years later, Yogi Bhajan purchased a large parcel of land in the Jemez Mountains where the Hopis had indicated sacred gatherings had taken place for thousands of years. For Yogi Bhajan, the greatest test of his teaching came in the winter of 1970-71, when he brought an entourage of eighty-four Americans on a pilgrimage to Amritsar in India. For their part, once Yogi Bhajan's students had overcome their hardships, they felt a real kinship with Sikh culture and embraced it.
On March 3, 1971, outside the traditional seat of Sikh temporal authority Akal Takhat, Sant Fateh Singh and Sant Chanan Singh bestowed on Harbhajan Singh a ceremonial sword and a robe of honor and a unique designation.
In the summer of 1970, Yogi Bhajan participated in an informal "Holy Man Jam" at the University of Colorado at Boulder with Swami Satchidananda, Steven Gaskin of The Farm in Tennessee, Zen Buddhist Bill Quan-roshi, and other local luminaries. These seminal events served to awaken interest in inter-faith discussion such as had not been seen since the 1920s.
In that same year, Pope John Paul II convened a gathering of religious representatives of the world such as Yogi Bhajan had proposed fourteen years earlier. All though the 1970s and 80s, Yogi Bhajan actively engaged in and chaired numerous inter-religious councils and forums, including the Inter-Religious Council of Southern California, the World Conference for the Unity of Man, and the World Parliament of Religions.[24] In 1999, he was gave a major presentation at the Parliament of the World's Religions in Cape Town, South Africa.
Yogi Bhajan, the son of a graceful mother, was deeply shocked and offended by the exploitation of women in America.

This work began in earnest in the summer of 1975, when Yogi Bhajan held an eight week camp in New Mexico where he taught the psychology of a successful woman. Although Yogi Bhajan did teach a few weekend courses for men, his emphasis was on women because he recognized in them the foundation of any society, and he wanted to fundamentally end the disempowerment of Western women and the destruction of families. While encouraging his female students to practice natural childbirth and to breast-feed, practices which were not widely adhered to in the early 1970s, Yogi Bhajan also revived the ancient Indian custom of celebrating the arrival of the new soul at the one hundred twentieth day of pregnancy. Yogi Bhajan played a pivotal role in having the right of practicing Sikhs to keep their distinctive turbans recognized in the United States and Canada.
This development led to a similar case launched by a student of Yogi Bhajan in 1977, a test challenge involving the Canadian Armed Forces.
Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s personal assault on the Sikh minority in India took advantage of their splintered leadership.
When the peaceful campaign of civil disobedience waged by Sikh activists to address longstanding grievances with India's central government turned violent, Yogi Bhajan advised the leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale to call it off and resume another day, which he did not. Several times in the early 1980s during the Punjab insurgency, Yogi Bhajan went and tried to mediate peace between the members of Indira Gandhi's government and the Sikh leadership in Punjab, which he was uniquely positioned to do.
While urging Sikhs in the West not to lose hope or descend into wanton violence, Yogi Bhajan attempted to organize relief supplies for victims and still to conciliate the opposing sides, which both included Sikhs. As the international media and human rights observers were kept out of Punjab, indiscriminate arrests, tortures and killings by the police left an estimated 10,000 civilians dead, and hundreds more of the visible minority Sikhs disappeared or detained without charges or trial. Even as he ventured out of familiar territory, expanding the reach of Sikh teachings and calling reprobates to task, Yogi Bhajan also kept an eye on Sikh unity. In 1986, as the Khalistan movement (Sikh separatist movement within India) exerted an increasingly divisive role in the Sikh community, Yogi Bhajan appointed Bhai Sahib Bhai Jiwan Singh of the Akhand Kirtani Jatha as Jathedar (Secretary) of Sikh Unity. Although he was instrumental in creating a new culture of Sikhs in the Western Hemisphere – Gursikh yogis speaking English, Spanish, German and Italian – Yogi Bhajan did not appreciate artificial divisions dividing Sikhs from one another, whether they be based on caste, race, nationality or any other grounds. Yogi Bhajan was not in the least naive about the importance of being politically connected if one wanted to succeed in the United States and did not shy from political functions. As early as 1970, Yogi Bhajan was known to call on members of Congress in their Washington offices. Early on, when the term "stress" was still practically unheard of, Yogi Bhajan warned his students about a tidal wave of insanity that would soon engulf modern industrialized societies.[43] As a remedy, Yogi Bhajan taught hundreds of techniques of yogic exericise and meditation.
Yogi Bhajan encouraged his students to go into business and served as a trusted advisor to a number of successful enterprises. In 1998, Yogi Bhajan founded the Miri Piri Academy at a short distance outside of Amritsar, India. Yogi Bhajan died of complications of heart failure at his home in Espanola, New Mexico, on October 6, 2004, aged 75.
Chavah received initiation into eleven ancient, mystical lineages from the yogi, Prince Hirindra Singh.
Chavah trained in the Essene spiritual traditions with Reverend Russell Nees, the founder of Optimum Health Institute in Austin, Texas.
She co-founded Enlightened Life Sanctuary with Prince Hirindra to serve as a universal temple of new consciousness, preserving highly effective methods for healing, self-realization and life mastery from their eastern and western lineages. Give up reliance on outer authority and have the courage to live from the true authority within you. Working internally and externally, it stimulates the lungs, organs of elimination and digestion, increases spine flexibility, circulation and balances the chakras. He completed his University studies in the United States of America and is fluent in English and Indonesian and also speaks some Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.
Irman, as he is known to his students, also trains and supervises Open Heart Workshop instructors worldwide to be able to effectively teach about the heart and how to do Open Heart Meditation properly. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Mathematics degree at the age of 20 from California State University, USA, with Magna Cum Laude and Honours.
And whenever we have feelings of peace, calmness or joy, it’s experienced not in our head, but in our heart. During her lifetime, she inspired many people with her courage and willingness to lead a life of purpose and quality.
In her book, Radha Diary of a Woman’s Search, she tells the story of reuniting with her teacher. The first western woman to become a sanyasin, she was given the name Swami Sivananda Radha Saraswati. Her approach to the Eastern teachings was straightforward, accessible and intensely practical.
To me, people are not spiritual if this quality is not there in their lives-even if they meditate six hours a day. She worked with her students and devotees at the gut level where ideas translate into application.
He encouraged her to find the sacred in the dance, showing her that the body could be a spiritual tool. This clarity may come at first in understanding certain often-used terms like love, service, humility, meditation, consciousness, mind, energy and God.
The Radha Yoga Centers, light-houses in the cities offer classes and courses in the teachings. The course is for potential yoga teachers and to anyone wishing to deepen their yoga practice and make changes in their approach to life.
The illumination grew brighter and brighter, the roaring louder, I experienced a rocking sensation and then felt myself slipping out of my body, entirely enveloped in a halo of light. He believed that this experience began a process in which his entire nervous system would be slowly reorganized and transformed by the Kundalini energy that he awakened within himself. The marvelous aspect of the condition, lay in the sudden realization that although linked to the body and surroundings I had expanded in an indescribable manner into a titanic personality, conscious from within of an immediate and direct contact with an intensely conscious universe, a wonderful immanence all around me. However, one area that stands out as particularly interesting was the change in his experience of dreams. He is honest in describing the difficulties and dangers of the spiritual path, and the intense pressure it can exert on the physical body. It is one of the components of an esoteric description of man's 'subtle body', which consists of nadis (energy channels), chakras (psychic centres), prana (subtle energy), and bindu (drops of essence). The image given is that of a serpent coiled 3 and a half times around a smokey grey lingam. The progress of kundalini through the different chakras leads to different levels of awakening and mystical experience, until the kundalini finally reaches the top of the head, Sahasrara chakra, producing an extremely profound mystical experience.

Once awakened, often through meditation and yoga practices, it rises up the spine and finds expression in the form of spiritual knowledge, mystical vision, psychic powers, and ultimately, enlightenment.
Fateh Singh taught him the essence of Sikh teachings and instilled in him a respect for all religions and an awe of the silent mysteries of life. There, Harbhajan Singh attended Camp College – a hastily put together arrangement for thousands of refugee students – and organized the Sikh Students Federation in Delhi. His government duties often facilitated his traveling to remote ashrams and distant hermitages in order to seek out reclusive yogis and swamis. In three months, he established classes at several YMCAs, co-founded a yoga centre, was interviewed for national press and television, and helped set in motion the creation of eastern Canada's first Sikh temple in time for Guru Nanak's five hundredth birthday the following year.
This development would prove difficult to accept for many Sikhs who assumed yoga to be an unSikh practice leading to eventual absorption in the sea of pan-Hinduism. Yogi Bhajan encouraged his students to marry, establish businesses, and be fully engaged in society. It served his premise that every human possessed the birthright to be healthy, happy and holy. Student-teachers would rise each day for a cold shower and two-and-a-half hours of yoga and meditation before sunrise. On a personal level, rising early and overtly being a Sikh was considered more of an option than an implied directive. They spoke of their ancient legend that before the end of the present age of darkness, a white-clad warrior would come from the East and create an army of warriors in white who would rise up and protect the "Unified Supreme Spirit." A sweat lodge ceremony was held and a sacred arrow given in trust to Yogi Bhajan. The elders had said this land needed to be prepared so "the Unified Supreme Spirit can once again be experienced by the great tribes and spread through all the people of the world." The land was named "Ram Das Puri" and annual solstice prayers and festivities celebrated there every summer since.
Once they understood that the devotion of the Westerners was genuine, they reflected on the best way to honor Yogi Bhajan for his most unexpected harvest. They had reasoned that Yogi Harbhajan Singh had indeed created "Singh Sahibs" (noble lions), and to continue in his work he would need a higher designation.
In 1972, Yogi Bhajan participated in religious panels at Harvard University, Cornell University, Boston University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1971, he taught a gathering of his female students that they were the "Grace of God." Thus began the Grace of God Movement for the Women of America. Through the 1970s and early 1980s, Yogi Bhajan taught that the condition could be cured through intensive yoga and self-analysis.

The Canadian Human Rights Commission decided the case in favour of the Sikhs.[30] A number of subsequent cases in Canada led to widespread acceptance of the wearing of turbans in a number of uniformed services, including municipal transit companies and police forces, most notably the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, where Baltej Singh Dhillon became the first turbanned member of the national police force in 1990.
Since many Sikhs and their political organization, the Akali Dal, had vocally opposed her draconian rule during the Indian Emergency (1975-1977), it was to be expected that the formidable Mrs. He especially encouraged the Sikh President, Zail Singh, not to resign in protest at the sacrilege committed by the Prime Minister, for this he believed would only further isolate the minority Sikhs and lead down a widening spiral of blame and bloodshed.
While some in Punjab criticized his efforts – particularly his administrative titles, structures and symbols - as heterodox, others toured the domain and offered their generous approval. While he opposed the Reagan government’s regime of high debt and high unemployment, Yogi Bhajan appreciated a strong foreign policy and especially U.S. President Nixon called drugs America's "Number one domestic problem," Yogi Bhajan launched a pilot program with two longtime heroin addicts in Washington, D.C. Many have been catalogued by their traditionally known effects in calming and healing the mind and body.

She has also been initiated into the inner order of the true Rosicrucians, mastering the mysteries of ancient Egypt and inheriting the secret teachings of the Masters Isis and Osiris, and Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
She is an expert in holistic systems of personal development, mind-body healing and spiritual awakening. He then obtained a Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence degree at the age of 21 from the same university. Her goal was to help people discover the purpose of their lives and to guide them in achieving spiritual and emotional independence. With her sensitive understanding of human nature she integrated modern Western psychology with ancient Eastern yoga to produce a unique teaching system which devotees say changed their lives.
Prayer dance became part of her teachings helping students learn how to transform their emotions into devotion through the beautiful gestures of east Indian dance. In the 80’s she turned her attention to the cities setting up teaching centres (Radha Yoga Centers), in North America, Mexico and England.
These books are popular and distinctive because they clarify the sometimes enigmatic Eastern teachings in a way that can be understood and applied in western daily life. Timeless Books continues to publish her writings drawing from an archive of material that is prolific, and Ascent magazine is a brilliant manifestation of yoga for an inspired life. He is one of the first people to popularize the concept of Kundalini among Western readers. He also adopted a routine of meditation as part of his mental discipline and practiced concentration exercises for a number of years.
He attempted to contact people reputed to know something about the Kundalini system of yoga, but could find no one who could help him through this difficult period.
He conceived of this energy as an intelligent force over which he had little control once it was activated.
My body, the chair I was sitting on, the table in front of me, the room enclosed by walls, the lawn outside and the space beyond including earth and sky appeared to be most amazingly mere phantoms in this real, inter-penetrating and all-pervasive ocean of existence which to explain the most incredible part of it as best I can, seemed to be simultaneously unbounded stretching out immeasurably in all directions, and yet no bigger than an infinitely small point. Each coil is said to represent one of the 3 gunas, with the half coil signifying transcendence. As a teen, Harbhajan Singh spent several years under the strict tutelage of Sant Hazara Singh who declared his student a Master of Kundalini Yoga at the young age of sixteen. Sometimes Yogi Bhajan would find them to appraise their worth, for India always had a surfeit of supposed "holy men." At other times, he would sincerely go to learn the specialized knowledge possessed by this or that sadhu. Often, they would spend the rest of the day at some "family business" be it a natural foods restaurant, or a landscaping business, or some other concern.
Meanwhile, the surviving communal businesses had incorporated and many had grown exponentially to keep pace with the rising demand for health-oriented products and services. The elders explained that they had determined he was the white-clad warrior of their legend. That same year, Yogi Bhajan visited Pope Paul VI and advised him to convene a gathering of friendship and understanding for representatives of all religions.
Strip clubs in Hollywood were briefly picketed, but Yogi Bhajan's real emphasis was on re-educating America's largest exploited class. By adhering to this historic custom, Yogi Bhajan also encouraged his women students in family planning.
Armed Forces took up the Sikh faith, they faced harsh discipline by those in the army and navy unaware of Sikh traditions. Kamaljit Kaur married Bhai Sahib Satpal Singh Khalsa in 1978, who is the Ambassador of Sikh Dharma, Chairman Guru Ram Das Mission, Secretary International Affairs, Akal Takht and Honorary International Representative for SGPC.
For nearly 30 years Chavah has shared the secrets of spiritual awakening, mentoring and teaching individuals and groups the time-honored practices of the yogi's, saints and masters with seekers around the world. To travel to India, receive sannyas and take the vow of renunciation was unheard of for a woman of her background. His famous autobiography "Kundalini: The Evolutionary Energy in Man" (later renamed to "Living with Kundalini") inspired many to explore the path of Kundalini Yoga. In spite of his religious orientation, he did not have a spiritual teacher and was not initiated into any spiritual lineage, which would have been a common practice for a religious Hindu. I felt the point of consciousness that was myself growing wider surrounded by waves of light.
He adopted a very strict diet which helped him maintain his precarious mental balance, and for years refused to do any meditation (since he attributed all his troubles to the yogic concentration exercises he had been doing).
From this point, the entire existence of which my body and its surroundings were but a part, poured out like radiation, as if a reflection as vast as my conception of the cosmos were thrown out upon infinity by a projector no bigger than a pinpoint, the entire intensely active and gigantic world picture dependent on the beams issuing from it.
They lacked coherence and continuity, but although strange, fanciful and fantastic, they possessed a visionary character, surrounded by landscapes of vastness and magnificence seldom seen in real life. He is more of a seeker who later became a teacher documenting his experiences with the Kundalini energy in a number of books, in hopes of being helpful to others who encounter this extraordinary spiritual phenomena. Yogi Bhajan arranged for religious authorities in Amritsar to take notice of their cases, which caused the U.S.
That year, Yogi Bhajan sent registered letters to two hundred members of the Sikh leadership, warning them of terrible consequences if they did not unite, which they did not. Since 1980, he was both friend and advisor to Bill Richardson, who served variously as New Mexico governor (2002-present), U.S. His message was that truth can be found in a balanced life and to use discipline to avoid extremes. To subsequently travel West on a spiritual mission, establish and sustain an ashram, take on students and successfully maintain an active teaching program for more than 30 years was both a challenge and an achievement.
It grew wider and wider, spreading outward while the body, normally the immediate object of its perception, appeared to have receded into the distance until I became entirely unconscious of it. The shoreless ocean of consciousness which I was now immersed in appeared infinitely large and infinitely small at the same time, large when considered in relation to the world picture floating in it and small when considered in itself, measureless, without form or size, nothing and yet everything. The story of this transformative experience, and the author\'s struggle to find balance amid a variety of powerful physiological and psychic side effects, forms the core of the book. Theirs was a well-to-do landlord family, owning most of their village in the foothills of the Himalayas.
I was now all consciousness without any outline, without any idea of corporeal appendage, without any feeling or sensation coming from the senses, immersed in a sea of light simultaneously conscious and aware at every point, spread out, as it were, in all directions without any barrier or material obstruction.
It was an amazing and staggering experience for which I can cite no parallel and no simile, an experience beyond all and everything belonging to this world, conceivable by the mind or perceptible to the senses.
They also deeply wanted to feel they were contributing to a world of peace and social justice. Seeing this in action made a deep impression on her and karma yoga became a cornerstone of her work. I was no longer myself, or to be more accurate, no longer as I knew myself to be, a small point of awareness confined to a body, but instead was a vast circle of consciousness in which the body was but a point, bathed in light and in a state of exultation and happiness impossible to describe.
I was intensely aware internally of a marvelous being so concentratedly and massively conscious as to outluster and outstature infinitely the cosmic image present before me, not only in point of extent and brightness but in point of reality and substance as well. The phenomenal world, ceaselessly in motion characterized by creation, incessant change and dissolution, receded into the background and assumed the appearance of an extremely thin, rapidly melting layer of foam upon a substantial rolling ocean of life, a veil of exceeding fine vapor before an infinitely large conscious sun, constituting a complete reversal of the relationship between the world and the limited human consciousness. Bill Richardson was a candidate for the Democratic Party's nomination to run for the office of U.S. It showed the previous all-dominating cosmos reduced to a state of transitory appearance and the formerly care-ridden point of awareness, circumscribed by the body, grown to the spacious dimensions of a mighty universe and the exalted stature of a majestic immanence before which the material cosmos shrank to the subordinate position of an evacent and illusive appendage.
