Uttam Ghosh (Yogi Rishi Raj) was born into a Yadav family in Rishikesh, the city of yogis in India. Since childhood he chose to dedicate his life to unravelling the mysteries and power of the invisible life force energy of yoga. His discovery led him to a special interest in leading a spiritual life through practising Kundalini, Yantra, Mantra & Tantra. Through his work, dedication and experience, Swami Vidyananda initiated him onto the Kundalini yoga path. This has shaped his life to become both a student and a teacher continuing to share the light and wisdom of the ancient teachings.
With the realization it became clear that the life of kundalini needs much discipline, respect and honoring of the powerful female energy to awaken the Great Kundalini that may be dormant within each of us. One has to cultivate the pure female energy qualities of unconditional love, care, compassion, humbleness and patience by which kundalini then awakens by itself without much effort and force.
In simple words, “when the ego melts, kundalini arises”. Uttam is now teaching a wide range of transformational kundalini, hatha yoga and ashtanga vinyasa techniques in Northern India in Rishikesh. He also explored ways to reach out to many westerners in Saudi Arabia to share the techniques and methods of kundalini yoga through a holistic scientific approach.
