Dr. Acharya Girish Jha, founder of SHREYAS (Samvit Holistic Research Educational Institute of Yoga and Allied Sciences), is a world expert in Yoga, Ayurveda and holistic stress management. Born in a family of scholars and spiritual seekers, Dr. Acharya Girish Jha is the guiding spirit of more than 60,000 people worldwide. His ardent love for ancient wisdom led him to the perusal of informal learning under monks, spiritual masters and philosophers of universal wisdom. He was initiated into the eternal tradition of yoga by the great Himalayan master Swami Laxman Das Avadhootji, affectionately known as the Laughing Saint of Gangotri. During his penance and sadhana for more than 10 years, he travelled across India, meeting, learning and receiving knowledge and blessings from hundreds of saints, monks, yoga and spiritual masters living in various shakti peeth (places of divine power) throughout the vast Himalayas and beyond. His unique style of presentation of the eternal wisdom, supported by the latest findings of modern science, his well-designed programs for modern man and step-by-step revelations of spiritual secrets in simple, logical steps has transformed the lives of thousands. A series of booklets on stress management for corporate, family, and school-age children as well as on meditation, and other allied subjects will follow for the benefit of everyone.
