Master Sirio, a Special Master of Surat Shabd Yoga or Sant Mat. Sirio had a spontaneous spiritual awakening at the age of 19 in 1972. Under the impact of this experience, he began an intensive practice of Yoga and Meditation.
In 1973 he went to India overland in search of The Master who would guide him in his inner journey. He recognized such in the person of Master Sant Kirpal Singh, a character of great charisma. On April 25 he was initiated personally by the Master to the Practice of Surat Shabd Yoga and had a great inner experience. After the Initiation Sirio could not help but sit in Meditation for the next two years.
The inner upliftment was such as to make the practice extremely pleasant and easy. Sirio Ji says that in that period of two years he did nothing but Meditate all day and many were the fantastic experiences that were granted that completely changed the quality of his life. After the death of Kirpal Singh in 1977 he joined a Master of Rajasthan, Sant Ajaib Singh, a disciple of Kirpal Singh as well, and he became his Italian representative. At the age of 25 he was asked to give the Initiation into contact with the divine Light. He was the first European representative of Ajaib Singh ji and had to travel to various European countries to give Initiation. From that time to this day has continued to impart such Initiation.
From 1973 to now Sirio ji has conducted many Meditation retreats in Italy and abroad, first as a representative of his Master and then in his role as a Master. In addition, he also made long retreats alone that lasted months. Sirio Ji does not accept any payment for his seminars and retreats; he makes his living by other means and gives his time to the participants in an entirely disinterested way. He takes care of the Ashram flawlessly doing almost everything by himself. He says that a man who has in him/her the divine must be able to manifest him in the environment that surrounds him otherwise are just unfounded claims .
