I only have deepest gratitude in my being for your guidance. I took your Sri Sri Yoga Part II class in DC and have never experienced asanas in the way you taught them–integrating asana with yoga. I have never felt my body in so much awareness and love. Every cell in my body was rejoicing and in each posture there deep prayer to the divine. You are a gifted teacher and I anxiously await your next course and hope to take teacher’s training with you.
Big squeezy hug,
I just had the wonderful opportunity of doing Sri Sri Yoga level 2 with Krishan ji in Washington DC.
This course is an amazing experience in itself. Not only did it give me the in depth knowledge of asanas but also the enlightened me about the path of Yoga and gave me an opportunity to know more about myself.
I am just feeling sooooo grateful for the opportunity.
Dear Krishan ji
I have been meaning to write to you for quite a while.
I did the course with you in Dec 2011, exactly 3 years ago in los angeles center. It was a 6-7 day course and I wanted to let you know this course changed my life in a big way.
I have been doing my sri sri yoga practice – 1 hour daily following the go-home insructions. i do this every day for an hour and take a break once a week for a day as instructed by you.
Some of the benefits that i had immediately within a month of doing this was: Dosha balancing (I re-took the dosha analysis form given by Sriram). My Pitta was very high and my kapha was bare minimum when i started and within a month this was balanced out! i couldnt have any citrus fruits etc – and most of the food did not suit me created a lot of acidity and other discomforts. But that was completely fixed.
Now having been doing this for 3 years (not missed a day except when i was ill or the weekly break) – I can say – this has provided strength, muscles, balance, high prana, ability to eat anything at anytime without thinking of consequences, balanced doshas, and overall sense of wellbeing and gratitude!!
The only question that I had asked you during the course was – How long does it take to make it a regular practice just like Kriya and you had said 90 days. And I can say with confidence – that having done this regularly now – I cannot stay without it..just like kriya 🙂
So thank you, thank you, thank you!! I heard you are coming to los Angeles again – I wish you the very best. And let me know if I can be of any help.
Dear Krishanji i am so Happy to start follow you blog, you are so ispiring even if we leave so far. I can feel your presence right now while i read your word. I feel so lucky to meet you in Bad Antogast during the Summer 2017. TTP has been very constructive with you i feel very bless! i keep reading please write as much as you can… . Gioyogait
my path to be a yogi began with you. i still remember the simplisity and stillness of the mind , the joy and enthusiasm i experienced in my first SSY ttc in Taiwan. over the years my mind seems to be a bit confused , cluttered , and judgemental.
this last Penang yoga retreat has brought some of the experiences back, your sharings and words of wisdom have sunken in, you are my inspiration on the path. you bring me closer to Guruji. – Kiri Burji
The 10day retreat has enabled me to find grace n gratitude in moments of my daily life. Perhaps its the spirituality of yoga at play…….honour & respect.
Krisanji has his humorous way of inculcating spirituality in us. We can always choose to “travel light” if we want, after all there are no luggage restrictions. All thanks to Krisanji for his guidance and all those present at the retreat

I am truly grateful to have been joining your courses in Penang, Malaysia for two consecutive years. I have been carrying & struggling with some impressions in my system since end of 2016. Eversince then, I had been having trouble going deep into meditation, as how I used to be. But Intensive Advanced Meditation came as a divine blessing from the Master through you. I put forth my query to you in a paper on Day 3, and i found myself speechless when I went so deep into meditation right after morning sadhana on final day. I did not want to let go of that moment, & stayed as long as I could, savouring every bit of that divine presence. That moment revealed to me that we are all “headless”; as been mentioned by our Master.
With tears of gratitude flowing continuously from my eyes, i bowed down to the Master & HIS presence in the form of Krishanji. Thank you for being you. I also sent out the merits of this deep meditation to all sevak angels, fellow participants & the entire world.
With love & gratitude,
The 10 days course was really inspiring to me as I really find a new understanding about Art Of Living. I feel gratitude and blessed with love , all the bhajans had touched my deepest part of my heart and mind. I can’t stop myself from remembering the rhythm and tears from my eyes, especially OM NAMAh SHIVAYA by Krishanji. The Yoga part was great too as I feel I am in the touch with it, each stretch make me feel my part of body, which part of body is weak and strong. I don’t know how to express about the gratitude to Krishanji that make me feel I am reborn on this path. I just want to say Thank You to Krishanji for making these 10 days a memorable event in my life. As now I think about the camp, I would eventually feel that I had the tears of love and gratitude in my heart. Really thanks to everyone for making one of the best camp for me

Missing You Krisanji…
wish you come Malaysia Again..
He made us climb the mountain, Right to the Top!
Not only did we climb it, but he established that mountain deep inside us too!
A mountain of faith,
A mountain of peace,
A mountain of joy,
A mountain of LOVE!
We reached the pinnacle of devotion,
And just stayed there, singing and dancing in ecstasy!
His presence magical & infinite,
His words carrying a universe within a universe,
His smile like the blossom of a thousand petals,
His eyes sparkling divinity!
To him, who has opened another dimension to existence,
I offer my humble pranams,
To him who has taken us from the real to the “real”
I offer my humble pranams…
You have set a heart on fire again,
It is burning in sweet devotion!
May your MAGIC touch all Beings!
Dear Krishanji ,
I was a part of your therapeutic yoga retreat which just concluded today at the Bangalore ashram.
I was transported to the good old days of 2006 TTC of SSY that we did in Bangalore ashram.
You made Yoga so simple. Kept telling us repeatedly not to compare, which is what we keep doing often.
Most amazing program . Extremely honoured to have been a part of this program . Please keep coming to India .
“Asatoma sadgamay”, “don’t focus too much on the body “, have had a profound effect on me.
Thanks for being you , for living the knowledge you spoke , for being our role model Yogi.
Thanks to our awesome Guruji for giving us Krishanji.
Dear krishan Ji
I love to read this and i would like to be “Disappear” .Bless me to be awake like this.~
Hope I could attend the yoga TTC conducted by you next year! Life is a new journey after I met you last year. Please take good care of yourself, dear Krishanji. How lucky we are to have you in this lifetime!
Thank you so so much for your wonderful and beautiful Knowledge, Advice, and Yoga that ended perfectly yesterday. I was very sincerely moved by your last act (on the stage) after we finished our 7 days course of Sri Sri Yoga 2 and Advance Silence Course in Penang, Malaysia. I can really felt your blessings for all of us that moment. It was soooo beautiful and touching. Hope you enjoyed the Satsang Dance with all of us that night, it was so wonderful that I won’t be able to lose these memories.
I am a very very talkative person that naturally always tries to make all the people around me happy, smiling and laughing, that 3-4 days of silence made me realised “Talking in the heart sometimes feels nice and funny too” haha….
To be honest it is killing me softly and gently on the first 2 days beautifully. It is by far my biggest and toughest personal spiritual challenge I ever did. I’m glad that I did quite well, even I looked at the phone sometimes and tried to talk. I’ll do the advance course again until i dropped this habit.
Anyway I sincerely wish and also send our blessing on your spiritual journey.
See U when I see U.
I am not a big fan of Yoga nor have I done SSY. Yoga to me is Surya Namaskar and Padma Sadhana. I came to know about you from your students from Therapeutic Yoga. There was a Google hangout with you before their therapeutic yoga course and she was bragging about how awesome and amazing you where. After the long Kriya one Saturday I happened to watch your google hangout. It touched me so deeply. Then your student shared your blog with the local Sangha watsapp group and few of your blogs moved me so much I was in tears. There is so much depth in you. Some times the words in your blog wwer exactly what I was looking for. It was so healing and tears of gratitude never forget to flow. The way you are and say what you are without feeling bad or fear about what you are, touched me so much. I wanted to write to you long back. But the words and what I wanted to say did not co-operate. Today some how I felt its okay even if I blabber or you don’t understand a bit on what I am trying to say, I decided to write….I am so grateful to your hangout and Blogs and more over for being what you are. I could not find your email ID to mail you…Hence here.
Beloved Krishanji. Sanjay and I are remembering you so much today. We feel so blessed to have you as our teacher. We long for be in your divine presence again, see your smile, & hear your voice again. A true yogi is rare and precious, and we feel so so so fortunate to have experienced YOU. Please come back to visit us in South Africa, we are all longing to drown in the devotion, knowledge, & simplicity that is Krishanji. Forever students who carry you in our hearts. Vani & Sanjay- South Africa
Your blog posts continue to inspire me to move forward in love, devotion, and service. Words are in simple language, carrying depth and have helped uplift my spiritual practices.
I was touched when you wrote, “To tell my story; I have to drop modesty ——-Modesty is a characteristic of the ego, and it belongs to the outer world.”
I am reminded of my schoolteacher who told me that: Pride need not be a bad trait but don’t allow pride to get in your way
So, having pride is completely acceptable, but being consumed by it is bad. Do not automatically castigate the opinion of others. You may even find yourself unnecessarily rejecting a good proposal or initiative only because you did not think of it. So, if you are smart, rely on your reasoning and if pride interferes then it is a feature not worth nurturing.
Story RE; being extremely pseudo-humble and distorted-pride:
A merchant considered himself as the most humble person to have ever lived. One day a villager told him that another person in a neighboring village was even more humble than him. Alas, the merchant was furious and shouted with anger that no living person can be more humble than him !!
Privileged and blessed to be your SSY student where your knowledge, compassion and love were bestowed on us. I experienced first hand how you passionately brought yoga philosophy and teachings from the Himalayan masters and Guruji to transform us. This helped us shift our mind inwards and radiate love outwards. You have been an inspiring mentor, superb Yoga teacher, and most gracious human being. I wish more of my Dr colleagues and friends could get an opportunity to do yoga courses with you.
There are no permanent goodbyes in this era of social media. We’ll meet again. Best wishes,
‘To associate with a sadhu is like sitting near a seller of perfumes. You may not be able to own any of the wonders he holds, but what emanates from them will envelop you’. — Saint Kabir
I can’t believe I missed meeting up with you at WCF in Delhi (in spite of being in the same room for a fleeting minute!).
But I think of you all the time and treasure the yoga classes with you in South Africa. I wish every human being on the planet could get an opportunity to do yoga with you.

Krishanji, I LOVE, and look forward and savour every post you write. The simplicity, love and devotion soothes my soul especially when I am in places where I am alone and it is very cold, and things are tough going. Thank you so much for sharing so much with us. Am truly blessed to call you my teacher.
Jai Gurudev! Shreya.

I feel so blessed to have had SSYTTC training with Kishanji and now through this blog- I can “hear’ him and remain his student “always!”
Thankyou for being there and bringing out the yogi in us 🙂 every moment with you was blissful
your presence is always with us and we seek your blessings to walk the path you have shown us .
First Thanks to Divine for blessed us with the Kishanji… Thank you Kishan ji for being there and being what you are.. We are blessed to have you.. “There is no difference in divine and devotee” this words becomes true when we got chance to sit in your presence.. as I found no difference in Guruji in You.. Love you so much!!
JGD,dear Krishanji, I feel so lucky to be your pupil in Ssy level 2 in Malaysia. Currently, my friends and i are working hard to practise surya namaskar towards 54rounds for the Yogathon in Johor. Perhaps, you can give us your support spiritually so that we can achieve the goal.
Take care \ #^_^#/ Yoke VanJ
Jai Guru Dev.
Feeling great to have come on this website.
It’s all Guru Kripa in one of his many ways to bless.
Dearest Krishanji ,
I feel so blessed to have you in my life as my teacher , mentor , guide and father-figure. SSY was a life transforming experience for me and i am eternally grateful for your continous love and guidance. I strive daily to imbibe all that you have taught me in my life and live like a Yogi as you do. We are truly blessed and so priviledged that you shared with us on courses and now , through my yoga space , will continue to share your pearls of wisdom. It feels like i’m on your course all the time and can truly feel your presence….aah what a warm and loving feeling….thank you , thank you Krishanji : )
i feel more and more priviledged to have been your student and blessed that the universe has steered my path in your direction because you touched me deeply which surpassed even the knowledge of yoga which you so passionately shared with us. I wish you happinness, wisdom and that your soul continues elevating higher and higher. You have been most inspiring to me as a human being first and foresmost and then as a yoga student/teacher. I am very grateful to you. THANK YOU! Jai Guru Dev
Dearest Krishanji stay in your presence let us understand directly what Yoga is, I feel so blessed to have You as my Teacher, the most blessed….. nothing can express….just Grace to have met You. Jai Guru Dev
Beautiful and illuminating! This is the most lucid explanation of ‘letting go’ I’ve ever had. Thank you and God bless you for sharing your wisdom and love with us all!
thank you so much for sharing your love and wisdom with us – and the world. much love and gratitude from cape town. Jai Gurudev.
Dear Krishanji ,
Jai Guru Dev and Happy New Year!! : )
An absolutely beautiful message and thought to begin the new year and i look forward to moving forward with you and all in knowledge , love and wisdom . And this blog will make that so much more easier. Thank you for this : )
Wah!!! Such a wonderful knowledge to kick start our New Year. The blog is really the best gift for everyone. No wonder people say must come for courses that conducted by Krishanji. I attended only one Sri Sri Yoga Course, supprisingly I was “awake” by Krishanji’s knowledge during the course. Tears of gratitute dropped like rain water 🙂
Dearest Krishan Ji
it was such a precious part to be accepted as a student in your courses.
Your knowledge is that deep, vast, and complete, that I would like to say,
“You are the Divine gift to spread the knowledge of Yoga on Earth.”
Thank You for everything you did and do to uplift the energy on Earth and in our souls.
Love, Karin 🙂
Thank you Krishanji, who energized us and helped us to deal with people with more compassionate and love. Your knowledge and love is always with us : “You are a nice person” and “Be Grateful” ! 🙂
