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.

May's Numerology Influences For People Born On May 15...
Your life begins to “bud” this month. Since the bud looks so nice and fresh, this is referred to as a month of “hope and aspirations”.
The events of this month give clues as to the successes you can expect to see in July. But be warned, the buds you see this month may be rotten inside. This in turn will lead to July being a month of chaos, failures and/or disappointments.
If you have made wise decisions since January then your life will feel like springtime at the moment… the challenges of winter have finished… the sun is beginning to shine more often… you hear the birds singing in the morning… you can sense that summer is just around the corner. This is the time in your life in which you can see the buds appearing on the cherry tree while picturing in your mind’s eye the cherry blossoms that will be appearing next month. It’s indeed a wondrous feeling this month as long as there is no rot or disease in the buds causing you to regret the foolish choices you have made.
Ultimately, this is a month of decision and settlement that is best dealt by expanding and growing aspects of your life more quickly than normal but only do as much as you can handle otherwise your life will get out of control.
While this is a month of decision, the influences of this month can also make you equally indecisiveness. Become aware of this so you can make the decisions that need to be made.
The decisions you make this month ultimately lead to a settlement. The settlement could be an agreement reached, influences that cause you to want to “settle down” or some sort of stabilizing life influence.
You might find that responsibilities are thrust upon you. If so, take advantage of the opportunity or opportunities. Life influences might urge you to get married or move in with your partner. You might also find yourself wanting to accept more business or work related responsibilities.
Relatively speaking, this is a well–rounded and stable month in which wealth, success or a positive attitude begins to accumulate.
Avoid drinking alcohol excessively this month.
Jealousy prevails this month and the mind can easily become twisted. Using common sense will help alleviate, mitigate or reduce any such potential problems.
Make this a family month whether that be serving your family or spending time with them.
Keynotes For May:
The life choices you have made since January begin to show signs of promise this month (budding). Look for and choose those buds (opportunities) that allow you to rapidly grow or expand your life, professionally or personally. You will be tempted to grow your life too fast this month. There is nothing wrong with growing fast when you stay in control. If you do not stay in control then you will burn out from severely drained energies. Implement only one or two ideas at a time before moving on to the next. Be careful in all that you do. Be safety conscious this month. Scattered thoughts can cause you to have many accidents. Pay attention when driving or doing anything that requires attention.
Love Influences For May:
This is a good month to move in with your partner if you have been thinking of doing this. Your relationship really wants to grow this month and that’s great, but keep it under control otherwise you will feel “relationship burn out” and your relationship will become chaotic. Growing your relationship too fast this month can cause you to feel drained especially if you let jealousy impact your thoughts.
2021's Numerology Influences For People Born On May 15...
8 Year Cycle — Reward For Labour, Justice
2021'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 2021:
Avoid red meats. Gonads, sex organs and reproductive system in both men and women.
