Shunyamurti – Founder & Director of the Sat Yoga Institute & Ashram

Shunyamurti is the founder and research director of the Sat Yoga Institute, headquartered in Costa Rica. Shunyamurti’s spiritual path has included many years of Yogic training, including ten years spent as a formal Yogic monk, and many more years of meditative practice in diverse spiritual traditions.


A Lifetime of Learning, Meditation, and Helping Others

Shunyamurti’s life-long quest for truth and the power of healing our souls and our world has brought about a deep understanding of the dynamics of the traumatized ego, the karmic trajectory and wounds of the soul, and the radiant healing power of the Supreme Real that is the One Self. He has learned how to work on all levels simultaneously to help sustain the ecstasy of Self-realization.

Many years of meditation practice and training in numerous forms of yoga, including apprenticeship with Baba Hari Dass, ten years of vowed association with a Brahmachari ashram in India, a special resonance with Sri Ramana Maharshi and a deep study of Advaita and esoteric Shaivism and Buddhism, have been supplemented by the intensive study of western metaphysics, modern sciences, profound exploration of the dimensions opened by entheogens, transpersonal psychology, various forms of psychoanalysis and Jungian dreamwork, and the entire development of the perennial philosophy, including Taoism, Kabbalah, and mystical Christianity.

Shunyamurti now functions as spiritual guide, retreat leader, and teacher of the Sat Yoga Ashram and Community, in addition to his ongoing advanced research in the Yogic sciences.

Shunyamurti’s Teachings

These extraordinary spiritual discourses offer a synthesis of the most subtle wisdom teachings of East and West. The knowledge of the ancient sages has been faithfully translated into usable contemporary terms that integrate the insights of science with the esoteric heart of the world’s philosophies, religions, mythologies, and shamanic traditions.

These talks elucidate, with crystal clarity, the multitude of obstacles we face as seekers on the path to inner Freedom. Shunyamurti also shows us how to overcome those obstacles. He inspires us to recognize, through the loving transmission of Truth, Beauty, and Godly Power that shine through his words, that all obstacles are illusions.

The concepts of Sat Yoga reveal a new cosmos emerging from the chaos we experience, both within and without. They name and expose the hidden strategies employed by the ego-mind to keep us ignorant of the transcendent blissful intelligence that is our real nature. Shunyamurti guides us out of the maze of egoic delusion into the liberation that is a return to the Source of cosmic consciousness.
