HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jul 2, 2012) - To many in the West, yoga is anything but unfamiliar. Though the practice of yoga may be Eastern in its roots, it has been thoroughly adopted into American culture, to the point that yoga classes are offered at many gyms and YMCAs, while yoga videos and books are in abundance. Though yoga, in general terms, maintains a high profile, there are some forms of yoga that remain obscure to American adherents -- including the ancient practice of kriya yoga. A teacher and author named Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath is seeking to change that, however. Earlier this year, Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath released a new book, which illuminates many of his teachings on the practice of kriya yoga -- and now, he is taking those same teachings to audiences across the world, embarking on a major international tour that will include stops in India, Europe, and the United States.
Teaching and spreading the word about kriya yoga are hardly new endeavors for Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath, of course. He has been an instructor for more than four decades now, beginning in the Himalayan mountains but since then delivering his message to listeners across the world. In fact, Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath has even taught from the floor of the United Nations. Additionally, he has published a handful of books, and his YouTube channel has garnered thousands of hits.
Most recently, Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath has released Babaji: The Lightning Standing Still. Described by the author as the culmination of his life's work, the book delves into the life of the historic spiritual figure, Babaji, from whom Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath claims direct spiritual lineage. The book also includes ample insight into the practice of kriya yoga, an ancient and rigorous practice that remains little-known to American audiences. In fact, kriya yoga is a largely forgotten art across the world, with Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath standing as one of its last masters.
Yogiraj Gurunath Siddhanath hopes to change that, however, by bringing his own insight into kriya yoga, as well as all of the teachings from the Babaji book, to global audiences. His new world tour will run throughout the summer, and will boast seminars, workshops, and multi-day teaching sessions in India, the United States, and several European countries.
More insight into the book, as well as details about ordering it, can be found at the author's website, http://www.siddhanath.org. The site also provides an up-to-date schedule of remaining tour dates, plus registration information.
