Real Yoga with Swami Harinanda - Free Yoga Lessons
December 25, 1928 to August 19, 2014
Sadly, I must inform you that Swami Harinanda passed away early in the afternoon on Tuesday, August 19, 2014. His death came quickly and without pain. As per his wishes there was no service nor memorial, although he would have appreciated donations to the SPCA or any animal shelter that you like. It goes without saying that this one–of–a–kind and great man will be greatly missed.
I first came to know Swami Harinanda around 1995. He was a customer of mine. One way or another, we got talking about spirituality and he mentioned to me that he was a swami. I must admit, I thought he was joking. But then I realized he was serious. We corresponded by email. Amazingly, I still have a printed copy of his early emails to this day.
Swami Harinanda was able to answer some of my basic questions about yoga and although I had started on the yogic path before I met him, talking to and knowing Swami Harinanda helped make my path more clear.
I was lucky enough to have met Swami Harinanda for the first time in April, 1996. I can remember the first time I met him as I drove up to his house. He came outside to greet me — I felt a great sense of joy and calm come over me.
The next day, Swami Harinanda personally taught me the science of yantra yoga at his dining table. I wrote down the principles of yantra yoga on both sides of a blank piece of paper as Swami Harinanda talked. It was a beautiful moment for me — finally my teacher had come. These lessons I still have to this day and still act as my foundation regarding yantra yoga.
Starting around late 1996 to 1997, I helped Swami Harinanda build an early web site. Later we expanded and moved his web site to this current location real-yoga.com. Swami Harinanda wanted people to see the words
real yoga — he wanted people to awaken to the truth of what real yoga is not. Swami Harinanda was not interested in yoga for health.
While building the
real yoga web site, Swami Harinanda didn't know what information we should add. So I suggested to him that we should add informaton that is not easily found elsewhere regarding real yoga. I told Swami Harinanda that myself and others want to know why we should practice yoga, what are the types of yoga, who are some famous yogis and a lesson in pure hatha yoga. So this is what we did. I asked the questions, Swami Harinanda wrote the content.
Swami Harinanda was a pure teacher. He would never accept money for teaching. Yoga or spirituality is part of universal knowledge that belongs to everyone. Therefore, one cannot charge for what already belongs to them. Swami Harinanda always said that a good teacher has a day job and then teaches on his or her own time for free. The teacher should pay for any room rental, etc — this is the sign of a pure teacher which Swami Harinanda was.
Swami Harinanda was taught or told personally by Ramana Marharshi to never accept payment and as Swami Harinanda would always say,
Ramana Maharshi is never wrong.
Swami Harinanda did not go to meet Ramana Maharshi in India, instead, they met on the astral plane. Ramana told Swami Harinanda that he did not need to be in a cave or anything like that to be a good student of yoga. Swami Harinanda took those words to heart and lived a normal life while being totally dedicated to self realization.
Swami Harinanda knew many little or lesser known things about yoga. He really studied the theory of yoga and put himself into a position to meet people that would impact him. Somewhere along the way he learned the
Master's Chant, as an example, and many more things. Swami Harinanda would openly teach kriya yoga as well. Swami Harinanda loved the yogic life and just absorbed every little detail.
In 1996, I was personally quite ill and possibly near death. Swami Harinanda gave me the book on Karma Yoga by Swami Vivekanda to read. It was the best medicine I've ever received. From that day onwards, I fell madly in love with karma yoga. Knowing this, Swami Harinanda bestowed the name
Karmananda to me. I thank him very much for this honour.
Swami Harinanda was a good teacher, a good person and a good friend.

January's Numerology Influences For People Born On April 12...
The seeds (thoughts and ideas) you planted several months ago have grown into plants and are now producing fruits; therefore, this is a month of fruition… success and rewards. Take in the harvest and reap your.
This is an excellent month to make money, to sell and create business deals rewards but put some of your earning into your piggy bank. Although this month can be fulfilling in all aspects of your life, this month can also lead to losses and failures if the seeds you planted were foolish.
While this month has the potential to be quite successful, your life will be tested or examined by nature.
After each harvest, there is always a period in which it takes time to grow the next crop. It’s for this reason that you need to be like the farmer who stores some of the harvest so there is food to last the next several months while the fields are tilled, seeds are planted and nurtured until the next harvest occurs.
Ultimately you need to be like a squirrel this month that is preparing for the upcoming winter. Not only should you take in the harvest but also you should work feverishly hard to maximize your efforts while super organizing your life. Collect all the nuts available… eat a few but stash as many as possible so you survive the “winter”. You won’t have the opportunity to harvest your crop again until October!
Although your next harvest won’t happen until October, you start the process of planting new seeds this March. Next month acts an important bridge that will smoothly take you into March.
The influences of this month encourage you to draw everything in at this time, all of your resources. Get everything in order by insanely organizing your life… dot all of your i’s and cross all of your t’s. Listen to your judgement this month, as it is usually good.
This is a good month to consider being charitable, showing leniency, mercy and even gratitude.
Keynotes For January:
Life offers you successes in a dependable and reliable way, but do not expect high–level success this month. Keep your expectations realistic and down to earth. Regardless of what success you experience; nature will test and/or examine the fruits of your labor. If you have planted wise seeds (thoughts and ideas) in the past, then your plants (life plan / life choices) will be strong enough to withstand the tests. Weak seeds will results in a plant that breaks under the stresses of nature with the result being failure and disappointment. The best way to pass or withstand any of life tests this month is to work hard and to focus not on the results but rather on the joy of doing… do everything with love. Avoid buying expensive items this month and instead, if you can, postpone the purchase until next month. If you notice more failures than successes this month then refrain from feeling that life is cruel, as you will have the opportunity in March to choose positive life influences.
Love Influences For January:
This is a rather romantically unromantic month. But this is a month in which you will feel that your relationship is providing you with full value or that it is a complete and utter disappointment. If you have been courting someone, then this could be the make or break month. All relationships will be tested or examined by nature this month. Those relationships built upon a solid foundation of pure love will effortlessly pass the tests. Those relationships that built upon a weak foundation will struggle and potentially break under the stresses. Nature can be cruel this month… don’t despair.
2022's Numerology Influences For People Born On April 12...
5 Year Cycle — Expansion, Renewed Hope, Change
2022's Emphasis: Rapid Growth — New Life — Putting Forth New Branches
Your life begins to grow fast this year and you are feeling a great sigh of relief as last year’s restrictions have disappeared. However, you need to grow and expand your life in a controlled manner to avoid chaos from taking over.
This year can be described much like a hurricane. The outside of the hurricane has high winds and a lot of motion, yet the eye of the hurricane is perfectly calm. Throughout this year there will be a lot going on but you must always remain calm inside and not get caught up in the storm itself.
To help remain calm, a good approach is to deal with one task at a time before starting the next. Furthermore, keep your life under control by pruning back the shoots and branches that are getting out of control just like a gardener prune backs unnecessary shoots on the plant. Doing too much this year will burn up your energy reserves!
There is a strong urge this year for rapid change; to get away such as travel, the need for freedom and also to be creative. All of this is perfectly fine as long as you remain in control.
Take great care this year and only go in one or two directions at once, as it is easy to have scattered thoughts. Scattered thoughts can ultimately cause you to loose concentration leading to accidents throughout the whole year.
If you have thought about moving to a new location, then this is the year in which to do it.
Watch out for explosions within your relationships.
Health Influences For 2022:
Take care not to burn yourself out this year. Solar plexus and gastric functions. Nervous tension in stomach leading to ulcers and indigestion. Do deep breathing as the influences of the year can affect the lung.
