Acharya Chandramani believes in the natural flow of life and trusts what it brings for each of us. He trusts that all things are lead and guided by a divine force and he does his best with what life brings each day. He starts his day with meditation for a centered and peaceful state of the mind to welcome the day and to bring presence and mindfulness to his actions throughout the day. Not only does he love to share his vast Vedic knowledge with his students, he also brings the ancient philosophy that he learnt since childhood into his daily life through constant contemplation and translating it into mindful speech, thoughts and actions.
Acharya Chandramani was born in a traditional spiritual family. From his early age, he was naturally inclined and interested in following the traditional spiritual practices of the Vedas. At 8 years of age, he became a serious practitioner of the yogic principles of Swetambara Jaina tradition. Later he was initiated into the Vedic Sanskrit tradition by Swami Vivekananda at the age of 10 in Prabhat Ashram, UP, India. Acharyaji was fully dedicated to the teachings and daily discipline of the traditional Sanskrit gurukulam from childhood to adulthood. Later in 2004, he was initiated by Swami Veda into a meditative lineage of yoga and meditation as passed down by Swami Rama of the Himalayas at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama, Rishikesh India. In his pursuit of academic education, he acquired a bachelor and master degrees in Sanskrit Literature and PhD in a well-known Yoga & Vedanta scripture known as Yoga-Vashishtha from Uttarakhand Sanskrit University.

“I have a vision to provide yoga to every individual, irrespective of caste, creed or religion, at no cost. Just as the sun and air is freely available to all of us, the ancient wisdom of yoga should be a birth right.”
