Yogi Amandeep Singh (M.Sc., MA, B.Sc)
There are those who embody the true essence of spiritual connectedness to the Universal Truth and energy vibrating down from the celestial realms through ancient lineages, taking root in the world of name and form. They are the bridge builders – the master teachers who serve as conduits of the Universal Light guiding those ready to hear, to return home.
Yogi Amandeep Singh is such a master teacher. His journey towards Truth began when, at the age of 12, he ran away from home to become a Sadhu and to spend his life meditating in the Himalayas. The Universe, however, had other designs for him.
Instead, the path of self-realisation led Yogi Amandeep to receive tutelage from many leading authorities on Advaita Vedanta philosophy and history of ancient yogic traditions: the Udasi Sikh tradition of Baba Siri Chand and the Nirmala Sikh tradition of Guru Gobind Singh.
At the age of 18, Yogi Amandeep’s path led him to Yogi Bhajan, and his journey was complete. He wrote his first letter to Yogi Bhajan to accept him as his student. In his response, Yogi Bhajan predicted the life of Yogi Amandeep in five paragraphs, telling him to travel the world, sharing the teachings of Dharma. Some time later, Yogi Amandeep was invited by the Kundalini Research Institute (KRI) to engage in research work for the Institute and become a scholar.
Just as Yogi Amandeep walks the path of the Highest Universal Principle, he also walks with grace and humility the myriad of paths laid before him in the physical world. Having received a Bachelor of Science (Honours) Degree in Information Systems and Software Engineering (Oxford Brookes University, UK), Yogi Amandeep also completed two Masters Degrees in Comparative Studies of World Religions and Counselling (University of South Australia), becoming adept in Family, Prison, Youth and Transpersonal Counselling.
Today, Yogi Amandeep shares his knowledge around the globe equally amongst those living on the margins of society – those imprisoned by addictions and mental illness – and those who consciously seek transcendence of the mind through a spiritual practice.
“You can learn from books in the library, but you learn from the Master, how to surrender. When you surrender, the karma surrenders too. You rise like a phoenix from the ashes and the karma remains behind.”
