In the Himalayas between the pilgrimage places of Kedarnath and Badrinath (Himachal Pradesh) lies the Siddha Dhūni, or Siddha Dham Ashram. At times SRĪ ALAKH PURĪJĪ stays here with some disciples. He is one of the great Siddhas, or Rishis, from Satya Loka – the highest level of truth and reality. The seven Rishis, protectors of the world, are sometimes visible on the earth, but mostly invisible.
SRĪ DEVPURĪJĪ is an embodiment of Lord Shiva. Shiva is the liberator, the destroyer of evil and wickedness. He embodies the light of consciousness and the fire of purification. Humans are indebted to Lord Shiva for the science of Yoga; he revealed this knowledge to the Divine Mother, Parvati, and in this way presented it as a gift to the entire world.
BHAGWĀN SRĪ DĪP NĀRĀYAN MAHĀPRABHUJĪ was a pure, Divine incarnation of love and truth who lived from 1828 to 1963 in Rajasthan in north western India. There are many people still living who knew him and were the recipients of his miracles; and those for whom it was destined experienced realisation and enlightenment.
PARAMHANS SWĀMĪ MĀDHAVĀNANDA was the spiritual successor of Srī Mahāprabhujī, and in his homeland of India and throughout the whole world was revered by the disciples of “Yoga in Daily Life’ as their spiritual Grand Master, and is lovingly called “Holy Gurujī”. Paramhans Swāmī Mādhavānanda lived at Mahāprabhujī’s side for more than twenty years and wrote down his Satsangs and Bhajans.
PARAMHANS SWĀMĪ MAHESHWARĀNANDA is the successor of Paramhans Swami Madhavanandaji. He has lived in Vienna since 1972 where he founded the “International Srī Deep Mādhavānanda Ashram” and the first of the “Yoga in Daily Life” societies, which was soon followed by numerous sister societies worldwide.
