His sacred spiritual Journey of Karuna Maitri:
His spiritual journey first began in 2015, when He was visited by Supreme conscious while doing Sadhna at his own place. He remained still for hours and tears washed away all the dirt of his self created identity. From that day he realized that he is not a mere bundle of flesh, bones with a mind but he felt his true existence beyond that. Following this experience, he began to have many more personal inner experiences and he received a clear message That ” Divine consciousness is within me, and he made mission of helping all the souls who come in his contact to understand their real consciousness to stay full time happy Through “Kriya Yoga (Tapha, Svadhaya,Ishwar Pranidhana ) with Karuna and Maitri .”
After this supernatural encounter, spent the subsequent few years to explore His journey within, experiencing all the states of transformation along with exploring his own Life journey to comprehend the true function of His birth as human being .

“Karuna (Compassion), Maitri (friendship), Shanti (Peace) and Nishkam Karma (Selfless Service) should be everyone’s goal and path to experience that absolute with in you. Only by treading this path – you experience the supreme consciousness and not by following mere typical yoga postures, intellectual understandings ,Scriptures, literature, rituals, preaching or advance meditation techniques.”
By imparting only pure easy going practical authentic and uncontaminated spirituality, our founder incorporated ancient spiritual wisdom of Sehajta- Sarlta (Ease) into modern concepts and practices. By constantly putting forward His reflective yet simple to adopt and practicable wisdom with unbelievable clarity and offering realistic applications for everyone’s holistic nurturing through true blissful experience, He has redefined spirituality which has helped him guide several disturbed minds , from various religions, beliefs and nations on how to live significant lives, with bliss, positivity, compassion, love and unity. Helping all seekers to witness an inner shift, by just re-establishing the lost true connection within and consequently freeing themselves from false perceptions and thus bringing close to them the much–needed true easy transformation in them.
“I want peace , I want peace – is but everybody longs for but must know that nothing other than path of Yogic Life full of Karuna and Maîtri , can help you achieve the true ever flowing peace . Once you know that its already there with in you , you Just need to Reconnect and withdraw the nectar of peace from the forgotten ocean called Anandmaya Kosa ( Blissful body ) with in you , that is the source of peace love and compassion”
