Lineage & Heritage
Bringing you tools, resources and inspiration for your personal spiritual journey
This yoga wisdom is being passed down through an unbroken line of self-realized yoga spiritual masters known as the Brahma Madhva Gaudiya Sampradaya whose teachings are known as Vaisnava Hinduism, or more specifically, Gaudiya Vaisnavism. The primary yoga scriptures of this disciplic succession are the Bhagavad-gita, Srimad Bhagavatam, and Shri Chaitanya Charitamrita.
Lord Chaitanya appeared in this line of teachers some 500 years ago and inaugurated the kirtan movement (the singing and chanting of transcendental sound) as the supreme method of meditation and recommended process for self-realization in the modern age. Lord Chaitanya did not establish a new religion, rather he widely shared a yoga process that anyone can apply to their life, allowing them to awaken and cultivate their innate wisdom and spiritual love.
In recent times, prominent teachers coming in the line of Lord Chaitanya include: Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur (1838–1914), Srila Gaurakishora Dasa Babaji (1838–1915), Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur (1874–1937), and Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad (1896–1977), who introduced this yoga wisdom to the Western world. Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda (1948- ), a disciple of Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad, established the Science of Identity Foundation in an effort to pass on this yoga wisdom. This website primarily contains the work of Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda as well as his own teacher and parama gurus as well as Jagad Guru’s disciples and students.
Through this unbroken chain of self-realized yoga spiritual masters the treasure of yoga wisdom is being offered to everyone regardless of race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, age, or religion.
