NITYANANDA INSTITUTE: SPIRITUAL LINEAGE
The tradition of Trika Yoga practiced at Nityananda Institute places great emphasis on the role of the teacher in promoting spiritual growth. A teacher is someone who, in almost every instance, has been the student of a real guru. As students, they have spent years ardently studying and practicing the techniques and methods transmitted by their gurus. They have carefully cultivated to a one-pointed focus a deep understanding of the highest power that dwells within. If such a person comes from a lineage and represents a respected tradition, then we have assurance that they have been well trained and are teaching from their genuine experience. Furthermore, if such a person has been empowered to teach by a guru, then it is because they have been recognized by their predecessors and peers to possess a profound inner gift. The three most recent gurus of Nityananda Institute's lineage are Swami Chetanananda, Swami Rudrananda (Rudi), and Bhagavan Nityananda.
