Overview for One Master, One Disciple
A fun-loving child, Jyotii is a bright spark who absorbs deliberations on the Bhagavad Gita, recites mantras in Sanskrit, and performs yoga asanas with ease. Growing into a restless young woman, she tries her hand at just about everything from Crystals to Reiki to Magnified Healing to dancing around sacred fires in Shamanic rites. She's been there, done that. But, little does she know that a guided meditation technique which she is about to practice at a seminar, will show her a vision of the master who will propel her on a fast-track evolutionary path. Initiated into Kriya Yoga by Gurunath, a disciple blessed by Mahavatar Shiv Gorakshanath Babaji, her spiritual awakening occurs in flashes of revelations about her past lives in various cultures, across several centuries. She sees how she has remained connected to her present husband in all these lives - as a mother, a cousin, a friend. She is nurtured and gains strength from the radiant energy of an old tree; ancient masters and yogis appear to her by a lakeside, and her daily existence is filled with paranormal experiences. Jyotii evolves not only as a spiritual seeker and a teacher of Hamsa Yoga but also as a more balanced human being who is able to meet, and help others meet, every adversity with courage, equanimity and grace. Along this roller-coaster ride that takes you through the cosmos, giving you glimpses of several realms of existence, one link remains intact and steadfast - the link that binds the true guru and the true disciple. Includes Gurunath's easy to practice 9 Ancient Yogic Techniques.
Jyotii Subramanian (Author)
A student of Philosophy and Journalism, Jyotii was open to any challenge that life would throw at her. Introduced to yoga at an early age, she practiced it as a form of exercise. After early marriage and motherhood, she grew restless as she deeply felt that life should mean something more. Looking for that spark, she experimented with new age techniques such as Reiki, Magnified Healing, Osho Meditations, Crystal Healing and Native American Shamanic Rites. Her spiritual flowering occurred after her meeting with the Himalayan Kriya Master, Yogiraj Siddhanath in 1998. She now lives in Chandigarh, India, and teaches Hamsa Yoga and Mahavatar Babaji Kriya Yoga of Yogiraj Siddhanath. Books from this author - One Master, One Disciple
Swami Mangalananda (Author)
Swami Mangalananda first came in touch with Anandamayi Ma in 1973, after having lived for a year in an ashram established in her name in the USA. Swami Mangalananda had read and studied Ma's life before he came to India to meet with Ma. On the day he turned 20 years of age, Ma initiated him and gave him the name of Matriprasad, which means 'Mother's Grace'. He usually accompanied Anandamayi Ma on her visits to several ashrams, except when he was specifically bidden by Ma to go and meditate at Haridwar by the Ganges. After several years, Swami Mangalananda returned to America to continue his sadhana. Circumstances finally arose when he could return to India and settle down permanently here. Once back, he devoted his energies to compiling an updated, short biography of Ma called 'A Goddess Among Us'. Today, he lives at Ma's ashram at Omkareshawar on the banks of the Narmada river, and continues his sadhana and seva. Books from this author - One Master, One Disciple
