Lineage - Heritage

Long ago, the essence of Yoga was revealed in the world's oldest spiritual scriptures, the Vedas. For many centuries, before these texts were written, the Holy traditions were transmitted orally from Master to disciple. 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.

Param Mahasiddha Avatar Sri Alakhpuriji

Sri Alakhpuriji is one of the great Siddhas or Rishis of Satya Loka - the highest cosmic level of Absolute Truth and Reality - who are the protectors of this world; present on Earth for many thousands of years, either in visible or invisible form. Their age is unknown and they are capable of changing their body at will. They stand above all conditions of this material world.

Paramyogeshwar Svayambhu Sri Devpuriji

Yogeshwar Sri Devpuriji is revered as an incarnation of Lord Shiva. The place where he had his Ashram, Kailash in Rajasthan, carries the same name as Mount Kailash in the Himalayas (Tibet) which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Sri Devpuriji’s powers are immeasurable.

H.H. Dharmsamrat Paramhans Sri Swami Madhavanandaji

Bhagvan Sri Deep Narayan Mahaprabhuji had many self-realized disciples. Foremost amongst them was his successor, a spiritual luminary, Hindu Dharmsamrat Paramhans Sri Swami Madhavananda (“Holy Guruji”) who brought the light of Mahaprabhuji to the world.

Vishwaguru Mahamandaleshwar Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda

PARAMHANS SWĀMĪ MAHESHWARĀNANDA is the successor of Paramhans Swami Madhavanandaji. He has lived in Vienna since 1972 where he founded the “International Srī Deep Mādhavānanda Ashram” and the first of the “Yoga in Daily Life” societies, which was soon followed by numerous sister societies worldwide. Under Swāmijī’s leadership there are now hundreds of Yoga groups in western and central Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and India.
