Yogmata Keiko Aikawa

Yogmata Keiko Aikawa was born in 1945 in Yamanashi Prefecture, west of Tokyo. She developed an early interest in yoga and naturopathy, which led her to travels in Tibet, China and India. She was one of earliest promoters of yoga in Japan, and in 1972 she founded the Aikawa General Health Institute, where she taught her unique Yoga Dance and Pranadi Yoga. In 1984, she met the Siddha Master Pilot Baba while he was in Japan to perform a public Samadhi. He invited her to study among the Siddha Masters in the high Himalayas. There she met Hari Baba, who guided her through the final stages of Samadhi. In 1991, Yogmata performed her first of many public Samadhis, a supreme yogic practice in which one is sealed in an air-tight box without food or water for seventy-two to ninety-six hours. After her eighteenth public Samadhi, she received the title of Mahamandaleshwar, or Supreme Master of the Universe, from Juna Akhara, the largest spiritual training association in India. Yogmata is the first woman and non-Indian to achieve this status. She and Pilot Baba have held public teachings and initiations throughout the world as part of the World Peace Campaign. She is currently working with the United Nations on a series of international conferences to further universal peace, sustainable living and the leadership of women. Yogmata’s charitable work includes the Yogmata Foundation, which is dedicated to funding mobile hospitals to remote villages in India. Her global mission is to bring love and kindness to all. Today Yogmata lives in Japan. She has published over forty books.

Yogmata Keiko Aikawa

Particularly focused on those in pain and in need of comfort and healing, and intended to touch and open the human heart, this book is a unique introduction to the Himalayan Wisdom Tradition. A Himalayan Siddha master is one who through a course of ascetic trainings has reached the highest truth, and Yogmata-Ji is one of only a few such masters alive today to transmit the Himalayan Wisdom to the world. As Yogmata-Ji writes, "I am here to guide you on a journey of transformation to expand your consciousness and help you reconnect to the sacred source." This she does with compassion and wit and a continual refrain to her own experience. The lessons are wide ranging, touching on many facets of our self-ascribed limitations, which with patience and love she explores and explodes. Exemplary is her first teaching, "Release unnecessary thoughts," and she explains: "When we release the mind's clutter, we move beyond the constraints of time. The present moment becomes part of an unchanging eternal present Now." The focused, incisive and caring nature of 108 Teachings makes it a perfect work of daily meditations, the practice of which place the reader on a unique path of discovery and self-realization.

Yogmata Keiko Aikawa

With meticulous attention and humor, she catalogs our human foibles in search of a happiness that, when the mind is clear, is revealed to be right here and now. Intermingled with a telling of her own miraculous journey of discovery and eventual self-realization, Yogmata-Ji explains the forms of mental entrapment by which humanity dreams away life. While clearly articulating the tenets of her own Himalayan Wisdom practice, she explains: "real yoga"; how the traditions of Jesus Christ and Buddha are synonymous with her own; the nature of true religion; what happens in the afterlife; and the wondrous efficacy of prayer. Written in a colloquial, down-to-earth, empathic style, this book is a must-read for all seeker of the truth.
