At the age of eight Sadguru Sri Mahayogi Paramahamsa spontaneously entered nirvikalpa samadhi, complete absorption without any notion or concept, and realized the Atman — True Self. He awoke to Non-dual Reality.

The SHRIYOGA philosophy is an ever evolving, deepening study into the nature of the Self and the path into the true heart of the practice.
