Venerable Grand Master - Swami Rajarshi Muni

Venerable Grand Master Swami Rajarshi Muni was born in 1931. He has engaged himself in the serious study and practice of yoga since his early youth. He received shaktipat initiation (note below) from Guru, Swami Kripalvanand, in November 1970 and renounced the world thereafter. After that he had devoted himself almost exclusively to secluded yoga sadhana (spiritual practice), his daily practice spanning at least ten hours.

Grand Master is an extraordinary spiritual seeker and has acquired the profound secrets of Mahayana Yoga. His praiseworthy efforts in previous births as well as in this life have resulted in tremendous spiritual attainments. Examples of this include by the fifth session of meditation after his shaktipat initiation, he had already awakened kundalini; he then commenced entry into the Khechari Mudra within four months, and had accomplished the same within four years. In his fourth year of sadhana, he had achieved what no yogi in centuries has claimed to have achieved, and certainly never in modern times. At present he is engaged in the most difficult phase of transforming the physical body into the exquisite divine body.
As the chosen disciple of Swami Kripalvanand, Grand Master is the present spiritual head of the spiritual lineage founded by Lord Lakulish, the twenty-eighth incarnation of Lord Shiva, referred as Samantbhadra (原始佛; 普賢菩薩) in Buddhism. He is also the founder of The Lakulish International Fellowship’s Enlightenment Mission.
In response to the spiritual calling from Samantbhadra, in December 2008, Grand Master accepted Master Haiyun Jimeng at his holy feet and bestowed Master Haiyun with the most secret of Mahayana Yoga, which enable Master Haiyun to complete his teaching blueprint to advance the historical task of awakening humans towards moral, cultural and spiritual values as well as to attain liberation from the cycle of repetitive births, existences, and deaths.

「過去佛陀在世時,有許多傑出的弟子,他們的長處各有不同,例如舍利弗是智慧第一、目犍連是神通第一,而阿那律則是天眼第一,他能清楚的觀看到三千大千世界,連非常微細的地方都能夠看得很清楚。 阿難知道了,就問佛說:『世尊,請問阿那律前世有何因緣,使他今世能夠有如此的天眼呢?』 佛回答說:『在過去約九十一劫前,毘婆尸佛入涅槃後,那時阿那律是一個盜賊,他便到佛塔中去,想盜取財物。當他來到佛塔時,佛前的燈火已經快要熄滅了,他見了便趕緊以劍將燈蕊撥正,使燈火又恢復了光明。盜賊看著燈火,忽然感受到佛燈光明的威力,心裡不覺肅然起敬。他想,別人都願意拿物品來供佛了,我哪裡有偷盜的道理呢?因此,他就放下偷盜的念頭離去了。
