Biography

Shri Sudhir Ranjan Bhaduri was born in 1889 as a prince to the royal family in the Nadya district in West Bengal. This district was well-known for spiritual giants who grew out of it, like Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Shri Shri Shiyama Charan Lahiri Mahasaya.

Since childhood, he had been searching for God and had a deep thirst for spiritual knowledge. His prayers were answered, as from the earliest days of his youth he was guided by wise people and was exposed to rare scriptures and books. He was so fascinated by the knowledge revealed to him, that he could spend days and nights diving deeper and deeper into his books.

As he grew up, his parents had hoped to see him settled down, and so arranged him to be married. Only his wife left him after only eight days, as she could not bare the fact that he was spending most of his time with his books. Shortly after his wife left, Sudhir Babu decided to give up the royal life he was born into, and left his family.

Packing his books in a bag, Sudhir Babu traveled to Varanasi, the city where every spiritual journey begins, hoping to find a master to guide him. Not finding one, he settled down in the Golden Temple (Kashi Vishwanath) and decided he would fast and pray until he finds a Master. After three days of fasting, saint Bhrigu was revealed to him and gave him initiation. Sudhir Babu went into a trance, in which the sage gave him the knowledge of Astrology and Brahma Chinta. During his initiation, he promised sage Bhrigu he would spread the knowledge for the benefit of humanity and not keep it only to himself.

Coming out of the trance, Sudhir Babu remembered everything vividly. Saint Bhrigu told him he was chosen to exposethe knowledge that was hidden in Tibetans monasteries during the 13th century. The knowledge was called Bhrigu-Chinta or Brahma Chinta Pranalli, and included five branches – Astrology, Tantra, Ayurveda, Raja Yoga and Mundane. That day, Sudhir Babu’s most meaningful studies commenced. He then dedicated twenty years of his life gathering the ancient scriptures, which were spread in various parts of India and Tibet. He succeeded in collecting 108 parts of the Bhrigu Chinta.

The West has learned about the Brahma Chinta knowledge from the meetings between Dr. Paul Brunton and Sudhir Babu. Dr. Brunton had well described this meeting (which took place circa 1920)], in his exemplary book “A Search in Secret India." This book describes Brunton’s search for the real Masters of Yoga in India.

Practicing Brahma Chinta Pranalli brought Sudhir Babu to a state of self-realization. However, it is customary in India that a man must have a physical teacher at least once in his life. Sudhir Babu therefore kept looking for a great living master to initiate him. He finally encountered Lahiri Mahasaya, with whom he studied Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga and Kriya Yoga, and exchanged knowledge of Astrology.

With the aid of sage Bhrigu, Sudhir Babu learned he was yet to fulfill his karmatic duties. He was to get married again and have a family in order to fulfill his earthly duties. He got an exact description of his wife to be, her name and where she lived. When the time was right, he asked her father’s permission to marry her, and then for the second time he became a family man. Sudhir Babu and his wife gave birth to five children, but only two survived – Shri Brahma Gopal Bhaduri and Shri Km. Durga Rani Bhaduri, Bhavani.

Shri Sudhir Babu left his body in 1956, when his son was eleven years old and his daughter 13 years old. Durga Rani Bhaduri, Bhavani, left her body in 1998.

Teachings

Bhrigu Yoga

The purpose of Bhrigu Yoga is to lift the veil of illusion, known as ’Maya’, and reach a perfect self-awareness. When a Yogi wakes the energy at the base of the spinal cord and enters the door that leads to the six chakras, he climbs from chakra to chakra, raising his spiritual consciousness step by step. There are 16 chakras, each helps getting closer to that supreme power we all yearn for.

The knowledge that enables us to know Brahma [God] and that deals with lifting the veil of illusion, ’Maya’, is called ’Brahma Chinta Pranalli’. This ancient knowledge was collected and edited by the Rishi Bhrigu, some 2000 years BC. It is written upon thousands of old cards, and is called ’Bhrigu Shangitta’. A large portion of these writings are now located in the library of our great father, Sri Brahma Gopal Bhaduri, in Varanasi, India.
Using this knowledge, we learn how to constantly keep our consciousness focused on Brahma. A Brahman is someone who has internalized the knowledge of Brahma. In the process of Brahma Chinta Pranalli, we learn how to unite the private self and the supreme self, to rise from the material to the spiritual and descend to the material again. Bhrigu Yoga teaches us to balance the two.

Complicating the simple

I read their stuff. It seems like yet another new system of Yoga which is actually just pieces of existing asanas and principles glued together in order to name a new tradition.
