There are times when amidst life’s chaos one has to look inward and introspect, in order to find answers to some puzzling questions about our existence and the purpose of our lives. Yogiraj Satgurunath Siddhanath found that the answers lie deep in our consciousness.
In his enlightening book, Wings to Freedom: Journey of a Nath Yogi, he reveals it all. The book describes his inspiring journey from childhood to the present. At the age of four, he saw a picture of Lord Shiva in deep meditation which had a profound impact on him. After he heard stories about Lord Shiva and Krishna, he would have fervid visions of them. Such intense experiences shaped his beliefs and the understanding of life.
In an interesting anecdote which might stand out to the readers, he explains how at the age of five, he was deeply disturbed when his watch stopped working. He explains, “If living things die, it’s okay, but when dead things die, I’m through with life.” This spurred him to take on the quest of overcoming death and becoming immortal.
The book vividly elucidates on his transition into adulthood, interactions with the Yogis of the Himalayas, his visions of “Babaji” the immortal Yogi-Christ of India, and his concentrated preparations to become a Yogi. For those interested in mysticism and wish to shape their spiritual paths, his explanations of Kriya Yoga, supra-conscious states of Yoga, healing and spiritual hierarchy would indeed be greatly beneficial. Those who perhaps would find the spiritual lessons too heavy, should try reading the autobiographical section of the book, as each chapter is supplemented with anecdotes and personal stories. One will indeed be intrigued to learn how each story led him to the next step of his life.
