Shri Shivarudra Balayogi Maharaj born in Kolar in the South Indian state of Karnataka, is a self-realised Yogi and direct disciple of Shri ShivabalayogiMaharaj.
One who has completed the path of Yoga and attained union with the Divine Consciousness. He entered His Guru's service at the age of 19 and was later initiated into Sanyas, a monastic life of pure devotion and service to God and Guru. He was placed in charge of the Dehra Dun Ashram of the Shri Shiva Balayogi Maharaj Charitable Trust, where He attended to the Ashram visitors and His Guru's mission. Thus He spent 20 years absorbed in intense spiritual practice, combining selfless service, devotion to His Guru and deep meditation.
Following the Mahasamadhi (the passing from this world's physical form) of His beloved Guru in 1994, Shri ShivarudraBalayogi was initiated through a divine vision into the spiritual practice of Tapas, in which He meditated for an average of 20 hours a day continually for the next 5 years. The culmination of this was the attainment of the goal of all spirituality -Self Realization, the permanent union of the mind with the Supreme Peace of Infinite Pure Consciousness. He now travels the world carrying on His Guru's mission of teaching dhyana meditation, true devotion and selfless service. Baba Maharaj is the embodiment of gentleness and compassion. His life itself is His teaching: devotion to God and Guru, selfless service to humanity and unrelenting effort in striving for spiritual perfection.
Shri Babaji offers initiation into the technique of dhyana meditation which He used to achieve Self Realization, freely and without obligation. He engages audiences worldwide with His profound spiritual insight, drawn from deep personal experience rather than scriptural study. His teachings are the purest form of the sublime philosophy of Self Realization taught by the ancient Sages of India.
