Gururaj Ananda Yogi

gururaj_flor.jpggururaj_florGururaj was born and raised Parsotam Narshi Bhana in India. He lived most of his life beyond age 20 in Cape Town, South Africa. From age 44 until his demise, which he predicted, at age 56, he devoted himself to teaching groups of people, amounting to tens of thousands of students, the art of personalised meditation, mindfulness and life transforming yogas. His teaching continues in abundance through various channels in approximately 12 countries, thus far. The vast teaching contained in thousands of pages of transcribed talks and various recordings has continued, after Gururaj’s passing, because of the devotion of many of his chelas (close followers).

During 12 years of non-stopping tours he answered to thousands of questions of people from all walks of life. These satsangs and other private gatherings between him and his disciples were duly recorded and around 3,000 hours of superb teachings capable to bring you insight, comfort and understanding in your spiritual path are being made available worldwide.

Self examination


I know a young lady, beautiful girl, intelligent, one of our meditators, everytime she met a man, she used to like the man, the man used to like her, but something just happened where it just ended, all the time. One, two, three, four, five, don’t know how many, beautiful friendships but they could just not lead into anything or towards anything.

Resist not evil


So, in acceptance, you surrender first to yourself by accepting the blockages and the weaknesses. When one does that and when one is honest with oneself, immediately the other force takes over and faces us. It knocks us right on the head.

Do nothing


Cuando hablamos de abrir el corazón, admitimos nuestra cercanía al corazón y el corazón parece como si estuviera pinchado, atrapado, y cuando digo que parece que está pinchado, significa que la totalidad de tu personalidad está atrapada, está pasando por una contracción sin la expansión.
