Interview with Yogiar
A rare and amazing interview with world-renowned (now transcended) beloved Guru Yogiar S.A.A. Ramaiah.
Beloved Yogiar S.A.A. Ramaiah left the physical body on Guru Purnima Day, July 12, 2006, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, at the age of 83. He has been laid to rest in the Mahasamadhi Shrine of the Athanoor Palaniandavar Kovil.
A very unique and special teleconference interview was recorded with Dr. Lawrence T. Bond (who was a disciple of Yogiar for over
25 years and traveled with him worldwide) & Michele with Yogiar in May 2005 to people worldwide.
The great deathless Maa Siddha Kriya Babaji Nagaraj of the Himalayas initiated Yogiar into Kriya Yoga in 1948 and then assigned him to carry the art and science of Kriya Yoga to all corners of the world. To this end, Yogiar Ramaiah founded Kriya Babaji Sangah in the San Thome section of Chennai, India, in 1952, and his International Babaji Yoga Sangam now includes 50 centers worldwide.
It has always been Yogiar’s will that these centers be nourished and maintained as if they were his own natural children. They are and will remain havens for those who would “seek Babaji to become a Babaji”.
Yogiar was one of the first to bring yoga to America, establishing ten centers in the U.S.A. and Canada. Over the years, Yogiar blessed more than 2000 souls with dikshai and initiation into Babaji’s powerful techniques. To further spread Babaji’s message of Unity in Diversity, Yogiar presided over fifty-two consecutive, annual Parliaments of World Religion and Yoga, beginning in 1954.
This wonderful tradition has continued with the 54th Parliament of World Religions of Yoga which was held in Sedona Arizona by his disciples on August 26 and 27, 2006.
It seems terribly inadequate to describe Yogiar by presenting a chronology or listing his accomplishments. Everything he did seemed to be a channeling of Divine Love, even if we weren’t capable of immediately appreciating and understanding this. Indeed, so effective and consistent was this channeling, that for all intents and purposes, he was, to his followers worldwide Divine Love incarnate.
Those who wish to honor Yogiar may kindly devote their lives to God and Truth.
Om Shanti! Shanti!! Shanti!!! Om!!!!
