Lineage - Heritage


To transmit the highest truth the Master must be Brahma Nistham Srotriyam, knower of all three times, this Master is known as the Satguru. To transcend the mind and reach the ultimate goal, seekers need the guidance of a Satguru, an enlightened Master who has followed the path to its natural end and can lead them to the Divine within themselves.

The Satguru lineage of Yoga in Daily Life stretches back through time for centuries from Param Mahasiddha Awatar Sri Alakhpuriji, right up to the present day to H.H. Mahamandaleshwar Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda who now wears the Chadar of this Divine lineage.
