Swami Khecaranatha has been teaching Kundalini MahaYoga since 1972. With a mastery etched from more than four decades of inner practice and selfless service, he is an authentic adept of Tantric Shaivism and an initiated carrier in the Shaktipat Lineage of Bhagavan Nityananda and Swami Rudrananda (Rudi). Khecaranatha is the spiritual leader of TrikaShala and director of Rudramandir: A Center for Spirituality and Healing, located in Berkeley, California.
Swami Khecaranatha was not born to privilege or in a spiritual environment, but to an American family in circumstances comparable to those of most of his readers. While living in an ashram for thirty years he also held several “real-world” jobs, including that of CEO of a multimillion-dollar publishing/consulting business. This personal experience has strengthened Swami Khecaranatha’s conviction that it is possible to live fully in the world while developing and maintaining one’s conscious connection with the Divinity within. From this platform, he is able to discuss spiritual growth in language that is relevant to students’ daily lives, giving them specific tools to actualize the radical transformation of consciousness that is available to anyone willing to work in depth, over time.
