Full Bio Short Bio

Jyotish and Devi exemplify the most honorable and effective qualities of Westerners who represent Eastern spiritual traditions: faithful emissaries of Yogananda and his lineage and respectful of the social customs where they teach; able to adapt ancient teachings to the modern world without distorting or diluting them. Philip Goldberg, author of American Veda: From Emerson and the Beatles to Yoga and Meditation, How Indian Spirituality Changed the West
