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.

June's Numerology Influences For People Born On March 16...
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 rewards.
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.
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 May of next year!
Although your next harvest won’t happen until May of next year, you start the process of planting new seeds in August. Next month acts an important bridge that will smoothly take you into August.
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 June:
In reviewing the last 9 years, this month has the potential to be one of your best months for earning money. To maximize your profits, successes and rewards you must really focus on using good judgement, really organizing your life and/or thoughts and working hard to bring in the harvest. The influences of this month primarily relate to finances (investments, saving money, business dealings, increasing sales, profits, commissions; etc). Look to stabilize your life so you enhance your stability and dependability. Consider giving a donation to your favorite charity this month. Although your potential to earn more money than normal is exceptional at this time… make sure you save because next month has the potential to be a month of losses. If you notice more failures than successes this month then do not worry, as you will have the opportunity in August to choose positive life influences.
Love Influences For June:
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. The influences of this month encourage you to act and behave in a dependable and stabilizing way.
2023's Numerology Influences For People Born On March 16...
9 Year Cycle — Reflection
2023's Emphasis: Harvest — Collect Seeds For Replanting
This year requires you to reflect on your life over the last 9 years. Determine what’s been good and what’s been bad. Choose the best seeds (aspects of your life) while throwing away the bad. The seeds can relate to any part of your life whether it is financial, romance, business, education, family, etc.
Next year, when you enter your 1 year cycle, will require you to plant your chosen seeds, so choose carefully. There is no rule or law that says you have to plant seeds based solely on your life over the last 9 years, you can of course, create new ideas; however, it is unwise to continue with foolish aspects of your life — at the same time, you would be foolish not to continue or to replant those seeds (thoughts and ideas) that have been beneficial. Ideally though, you want to plant quality seeds that build upon your last 9 years so you continue to build the positives in your life. This in turn will help to strengthen, fortify and solidify all aspects of your life. The quality seeds you plant next year will then govern your life for the subsequent 9 years.
This is ultimately a year for dreaming and planning. So take your time and spend it wisely choosing the very best seeds. If you plant wise seeds next year you will help erase any of the failures, chaos, turmoil and disappointments of the last 9 years. If you replant wise seeds, you continue the cycle of prosperity.
This year provides you with the rare opportunity or ability to mentally discern, with sound judgment, the negatives and positives of your life over the last 9 years. The influences of this year encourage you to really take a good look at your life, to maximize your vision and see in all directions.
Consider serving humanity this year.
A parasitic desire for luxury can cause you to pay, at any cost, to achieve it. This will lead to personal losses through unchecked passions and desires. Stay in control otherwise you can loose financially and in other ways such as your health. This year can be, unfortunately, a year of losses.
This will be a year in which you experience the bitter with the sweet.
You will start negotiating the necessary changes required around October of this year —
Health Influences For 2023:
