Kriya Yoga Takes Center Stages as Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath Embarks on World Teaching Tour

June 26, 2012

HOUSTON, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — In America, the concept of yoga is hardly unfamiliar. Yoga is viewed by many as a personal fitness endeavor, often divorced from its spiritual roots; in fact, yoga is offered in the exercise classes found at many gyms and YMCAs. While this more Western conception of yoga may be familiar, however, the more rigorous and rewarding practice of kriya yoga is often ignored by Americans — but a teacher and kriya yoga master named Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath is seeking to change that. One of the only kriya yoga masters in the world today, Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath has embarked on a major world tour, bringing his teachings on this ancient tradition to audiences in India, Europe, and the United States.

A lifelong educator and kriya yoga enthusiast, Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath is no stranger to delivering his teachings to wide, international audiences. The master got his start as a teacher traveling through the Himalayan region, and since that time has authored books, developed popular YouTube videos, and even taught from the floor of the United Nations. His devotion to kriya yoga as an empowering and deeply spiritual pursuit is what has long characterized his life and work.

Most recently, Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath illuminated his beliefs in a tome called Babaji: The Lightning Standing Still. Referring to the book as his “life’s work,” Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath has been heralded for the volume, which has already sold out of its initial hardcover run. In the book, the teacher explores the divine presence known as Babaji, and also explains his views on kriya yoga and his well-known “Earth peace through self peace” mantra.

The author and teacher has embarked on a major international teaching tour, one that is equally devoted to illuminating the teachings of Babaji and also bringing the principles of kriya yoga into greater prominence. The tour began in India, and will run through the duration of the summer and into the autumn. Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath will be making appearances, and also offering multi-day kriya yoga workshops, in cities throughout the United States and Europe.

For more information about the tour, including a list of the remaining dates, interested parties can visit the author’s website, http://www.siddhanath.org. The website has registration information, as well as information about the book, the author, and the practice known as kriya yoga.
