Dr Jayadeva Yogendra

Dr Jayadeva Yogendra was born on April 27, 1929. The first born of two sons, Dr. Jayadeva has lived an extraordinary life. He grew up at the Yoga Institute; his environment and influences were steeped in yoga from the very beginning. He was totally surrounded by the yoga lifestyle. As a quiet, reflective boy, he spent considerable time pondering the principles and practices of yoga. He completed his Ph.D. in philosophy at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan under Mumbai University. In the early 1950s, he was asked by Shri Yogendra to organize various educational and training programs. He has contributed many innovations to yoga education. For example, he introduced “the methodology of teaching yoga to different groups with specially customized syllabi and programs.” Dr. Jayadeva has authored eight books and participated in numerous research studies and publications, beginning in 1951. He is the editor of the monthly journal of The Yoga Institute – ‘Yoga and Total Health’ for the past 51 years.

Dr. JayadevaYogendra, world-renowned “householder Yogi”, was born in a family of Yogis and lives a duty bound life. Today, the Sadhakas and students of The Yoga Institute, look up to this humble man as a Guru and guide.

Together with his wife Hansaji, Dr. Jayadev has introduced several group learning programmes that generate self-awareness. Indeed, they are a unique couple, united in their way of thinking and in their dedication to yoga. Today, DrJayadev (PhD Philosophy, University of Bombay) is the Head of the Institute, an editor as well as a teacher. His main concern is the teaching of classical yoga ideals, its historic context and its possibilities in modern life. Hansaji has a huge fan following. After all, she is the charismatic yoga expert of the popular television series 'Yoga for Better Living'.

The couple has made yoga simple, meaningful yet experimental. It is a way of life for them. Unlike many teachers, who provide a lopsided view of yoga by over-emphasising either the physical aspects or the relaxation techniques, Dr. Jayadev and Hansaji have developed a conceptual framework that is really outstanding. First introduced by Dr. Jayadeva, Bhavas play a very important role on the path of Yoga. Regular and repeated practice of these techniques slowly enhances the accompanying Bhava into one’s personality. Bhavas literally translated, the word ‘Bhava’ stands for a feeling or attitude.

Dr Vassant Shirvaikar

V. V. Shirvaikar, born in Goa in 1933, had his primary and secondary education in Goa. He then studied at the Wilson College in Bombay and did his Master’s degree in Nuclear Physics. He later joined the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Bombay where he was a research scientist, specialising in the Environmental Sciences, especially subjects related to safety from radioactive gaseous pollutants released from Nuclear plants, until his retirement in 1991.

He has authored several research papers in scientific journals, written several technical reports and guided research in his subject of specialisation. He was also connected with International Atomic Energy Agency, Maharashtra Pollution Control Board, Bureau of Indian Standards and National Environmental Engineering Research Institute at Nagpur.

He developed high respect and an attraction towards Shri Shankar Maharaj when he happened to read the Marathi translation of Towards the Silver Crests of Himalayas and saw the photograph of Maharaj with his childlike face and remarkably big eyes. This attraction was fanned by Mr N. G. Date, a spiritualist from Malad (Bombay) who has been a catalyst to many in their spiritual path and with whom he came in contact by chance.

Circumstances led to his being taken in his fold by Maharaj through another disciple in 1985, some 38 years after Maharaj took Samadhi.

Though Dr. Shirvaikar did initially keep in contact with the scientific work related to environment he now keeps himself busy with spiritual topics. He wrote several articles on spiritual topics for the quarterly periodical Sai-Arpan including a ten part series on Datta-Parampara and another ten part series on Teachings of Dnyaneshwari.

Dr Shirvaikar lives with his wife in Pune where he settled immediately after retirement from service. His two sons live in the USA.
