Our Gurus who inspires and preaches us

Gurus are those rare beings who have realized their oneness with the Supreme, - the highest transcendental Consciousness. They have not only realized their true self but also work selflessly to inspire humanity to seek the divinity within them. A Guru is able to expedite the progress of his/her disciples through their close connection to the supreme. They taught the timeless spiritual truths in a variety of ways, their teachings reflect the environment and period in which they live. Masters may have offered their own unique path towards the highest Truth. However although the outer forms may differ, the ultimate realization is the same. Swami Sudhir Anand has been greatly influenced by the great gurus - Swami Sivananda, Swami Vivekananda, Swami Satyananda & Swami Chidananda, Swami Ram & Adi Shankaracharya

The insight in Yogic discipline under the guidance of Madhavdasji, gave Swami Kuvalayananda's career a sharp turn. He ventured into a new field using entirely a new approach. He tried to investigate the effects of some of the Yogic practices on the human body with the help of some of his students, in the laboratory of Baroda Hospital, in 1920-21. His subjective experience coupled with the excellent results of these scientific experiments convinced him once for all that the age-old system of Yoga, if understood through the modern scientific experimental approach, would help greatly in the spiritual and material resurgence of the human society.
