About Ashwini Guruji
Guruji has spent his lifetime disseminating the authentic science of Yog in its purest form, following the Guru Shishya Parampara, sanitizing it of commerce. Guruji is well travelled, speaks many languages, has an honours degree in economics and a masters in management. What resounded with me was that he is a householder like you and me, however, when he chants mantras every cell of your body vibrates and experiences of subtle dimensions follow. He is an authority on Vedic sciences such as mantras, Vedic martial arts and esoteric healing sciences. A reservoir of gyan, merely being in his presence transforms the being completely. In fact, 200 doctors bore witness to it. At the Indian Medical Association in Mumbai, a demonstration of clairvoyance was given by him and his students was one of its kind in the history of medicine. Guru ji has researched and written extensively on our Vedic history and ancient temples and also lectured at prestigious forums including Oxford University, London and IIM, Bangalore. This year, on International Day of Yoga, the AYUSH Minister, Shri Shripad Naik himself, acknowledged his clairvoyant abilities and the power of science of mantras as imparted by him.
