About your teacher Rishi Yoga Diwali


Tattwa Shuddhi is a Tantric yoga practice using mantra Yantra breath visualisation and ritual to bring about a psychic cleanse of our being. 

I had been a regular practitioner of yoga and meditation for many years and I was introduced to the practice “Tattwa Shuddhi” in 1984 by Swami Satyananda. The benefits of practice are many. As a yoga teacher and a teacher of Tattwa Shuddhi I get satisfaction by sharing the benefits with others. It gives me joy to see the improvement in the lives of others. 

Tattwa Shuddhi has added zeal to my practice. I pursue my daily sadhana with ease and enthusiasm. My regular sadhana has a new found energy.I have found the senses are heightened, I am mentally sharper, hearing through the use of the mantras has improved, sight through the use of the yantras has improved, touch has improved through the use of the bhasma, smell has improved through pranayama and taste has improved through the sattwic diet.

Accumulated impressions from every day interactions, anxieties, worries, fears, depression and anger that used to impact and disturb my personality are diminishing so that the physical and mental levels of my personality have been  transformed into a more accepting and relaxed attitude, the usual dissipations and the oscillating tendencies of my mind have become more focussed and concentrated resulting in more energy. The benefits have also extended into my ordinary daily routines and activities and the judgemental habits of the past are being replaced with acceptance and compassion for others.

As an artist I have enjoyed a sharper mind with intuitive insights resulting in much more creativity.
