Biography

Born in a rural village in Orissa, India, in 1951, Sri Atmananda was exposed to the traditional teachings from childhood. After completing his education in the material field at the most reputed institutions in India, he entered into material and social life, which lasted for barely 10 years. During this time, his aspiration intensified, he practiced and experimented with the principles of Gita, and sadhana deepened. The prompting to pursue his own path independent of any physical master came to him while serving the most renowned yogi, His Holiness Maharshi Mahesh Yogi. That prompting led him to travel all over India and meet many masters. The journey culminated at Pondicherry where he surrendered to the Mother. The Mother guided him to a cave in the holy mountain Arunachala, where, in 1993, he attained the culmination of his sadhana. After remaining in the state of pure nirvikalpa for several days, he regained his awareness and came to the world carrying the consciousness of aham brahmosmi (“I am the Brahman”), the unity consciousness that enables the yogi to consciously carry the guru-shakti.

Sri Atmananda’s first spiritual work as a master started in 1993 and after 2000 he began to expand the mission and gave the call for manifestation. His primary residence is at Satyachetana’s main ashram at the foot of Arunachala in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, India. His work encompasses the yoga of Bhagavad Gita, and Veda. At present, he travels all over the globe to show to mankind this path of yoga and revive the pure wisdom that has been lost in the ages.
