About Yoga Guru (Founder)
Param Pujya Swami Veerraghvachaya Ji is one of the pioneer Indian Yoga masters who introduced meditation and Kriya Yoga, born on early nineteenth century. Swami Ji was a counterpart of Mahesh Yogi and both yoga gurus were basic founder in Rishikesh at Himalayan region. Swami ji was a great Indian Yoga guru and sprituallyteacher. Sri swami ji was one of the brilliant prolific spiritual personalities of India. Swami ji was a great yogi, philosopher and ascetic.
Swami ji one of the greatest Gurus has known and esteems even now, is the great. He is very much practised of reputed the Geeta,the Ramayana, the Brahma Sutras and the Puranas, but also as the most exemplary sage of the greatest perfection one could imagine. He was a God-man, or we may say a man-God, whose powers and knowledge were unsurpassed. He could see the past, the present and the future at one stroke. He was a person endowed with cosmic-consciousness. Nothing was unknown to him, at any time, in all the realms of existence. This was the sage who blessed all of us.
The importance of Guru simply explain that our mind has not been purified without the “Guru Kripa”yet. It has not been burnt and burnished through the services of the Guru and the Upasana of God. I conclude with these few words that we require the grace of the Guru. And we had our great Master of Yoga, Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj, nay we have Him even now, and I can confidently say that His Spirit is ruling this Ashram and is guiding the hearts of all His followers and devotees. His blessings are ever upon us, and God is with us.
