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.

July's Numerology Influences For People Born On January 11...
The seeds (thoughts and ideas) you planted over the last several months 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.
Maximize your profits, successes and rewards this month by achieving a clear mind. You can best achieve a clear mind by knowing when to take a break… go for a walk in the park, spend some time at home… read a book, listen to music… with clarity of mind comes the ability to really make your successes flower this month.
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 June of next year!
Although your next harvest won’t happen until June of next year, you start the process of planting new seeds in September. Next month acts an important bridge that will smoothly take you into September.
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 July:
Your successes and rewards really want to flower this month, but like many flowers, the conditions must be perfect in order for the flower to blossom. In order to create the perfect environment for you to achieve maximum success, the influences of this month suggest you obtain a clear mind. Obtain a clear mind by taking time to rest from work or life… you must know when your mind and/or body requires a break. Going for a walk in the park is the perfect cure for a confused mind… but you can also simply spend time at home, watching the birds or anything that is done outdoors and in nature. Really take the time to appreciate how your life is flowering… reflect inwards, create internal peace and embrace the remarkable beauty of your life… feel the bliss and let it resonate from deep within you until it exudes outwardly in all directions. If you do not take a break, then life can become confusing and you will feel lost in your own thoughts… a sense of feeling trapped with no escape. This will lead to turmoil and then failure. If you notice more failures than successes this month then do not worry, as you will have the opportunity in September to choose positive life influences.
Love Influences For July:
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. You might feel misunderstood in your relationship this month. If so, go for a walk in the park to clear your mind. While this is a month in which your relationship can begin to successfully flower, it’s also a month in which your relationship can be full of turmoil if your relationship is built upon a bad foundation. If you end a relationship this month, take time to heal and wait until late November before you begin making contacts with new people. If your relationship ends this month, then November is not a month for dating again, but rather the month in which you restart the process. You are more likely to find a new partner in December or January if your relationship has ended this month.
2020's Numerology Influences For People Born On January 11...
8 Year Cycle — Reward For Labour, Justice
2020's Emphasis: Fruition — Fruit Sets — Seed Pod
The seeds (thoughts and ideas) you planted in your 1 year cycle have grown into plants and are now producing fruits. As a result, this is the year to reap your rewards, to earn money, create business deals, to invest and to put some money in your piggy bank.
If you planted foolish seeds in your 1 year cycle then unfortunately, instead of reaping the rewards of success, you will be encountering losses and failures.
Similar to the 7 year cycle, you ultimately have no control over what type of fruit you see this year; success or failure. The results of this year have already been programmed based on what you have planted in your 1 year cycle. You cannot make something happen within this year that has not already been programmed. In fact, last year, this year and next year have all been programmed already and cannot be changed.
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 bank some of your financial successes so you have money to hold you over during the next 2 years which tend be slower in terms of earning power.
Be like a squirrel 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 nuts but stash as many as possible so you survive the “winter”. You won’t have the opportunity to harvest your crop again for another 9 years! But this does not mean you won’t have success over the next 9 years, it just means your greatest success won’t happen again for another 9 years.
The influences of this year encourage you to draw everything in at this time, all of your resources. Get everything in order by insanely organizing your life. Make sure you dot all of your i’s and cross all of your t’s. Listen to your judgement this year, as it is usually good.
This is a good year to consider being charitable, showing leniency, mercy and even gratitude.
Look to stabilize your life so you enhance your stability and dependability.
Next year provides you with the opportunity to choose new seeds that will then guide your life for the subsequent 9 years. As a result, if you are finding this year to be filled with failures and losses, do not worry. Next year allows you to start the process of making wise life decision.
Health Influences For 2020:
