" I, a U.S. citizen and a medical doctor, has specialized in the care of children and young adults for the last 38 years. After practicing modern medicine mostly in the United States of America and also in England and India, I have returned to India to serve on a volunteer basis. For the past two years I have been practicing the science of Kriyayoga meditation as taught by my guru, Swami Shree Yogi Satyam. He imparts knowledge of this ancient experiential spiritual science, free of charge, to everyone seeking a change from their current status by conducting classes throughout India, Canada, Germany and the USA. His desire to serve humanity regardless of nationality, race, religious beliefs, educational and socio-economic backgrounds, has led him to successfully integrate modern medicine and the spiritual science of Kriyayoga meditation.
Swami Shree Yogi Satyam has bestowed upon me the title of “Swami Shantananda”, which means a non-religious renunciate monk. This drastic change in my life and career came about after personally witnessing the healing power of body, mind and spirit through the sincere practice of Kriyayoga meditation. During a short period of 40 days in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, I have witnessed the cure of intractable illnesses like breast cancer, severe diabetes mellitus, cataract of the eye lens, crippling arthritis, mental depression, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and many more. I am convinced that with proper guidance each and every one of us has the innate power to heal ourselves totally in every aspect of our lives. Similarly, upon witnessing Kriyayoga practitioners during my three months stay in India, I came across many examples of people who have cured themselves of advanced diseases such as liver cancer, blood cancer, rheumatoid arthritis with severe deformities, severe rectal prolapse since birth, cancer of mouth and others. Also during this brief period, a practitioner, a dwarf woman at age 50, has grown her stubby fingers and all her bowed limbs to almost a normal configuration. If such tall claims were made by anyone else and not personally witnessed by me, I would not have believed them.
I personally have had several major surgeries including two open-heart, two back, two abdominal and two knee surgeries. In addition, I consumed about 20 different medications daily for various bodily ailments like migraine headache, chronic sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, chronic abdominal distress and hyperacidity of the stomach, prostatic enlargement, several skin problems, knee and back pain. I was able to give up all those medications without any untoward effect by the 4th day of the 40 days while practicing Kriyayoga meditation four times daily and consuming a non-violent yogic diet.
In Kriyayoga meditation there are no contorting postures and it is totally expense free. This is a spiritual science where every practitioner has 100% guaranteed results if practiced continuously with full devotion and patience. A short trial of approximately 7 to 10 days will convince many of improvement in their patience and alleviate bodily and mental troubles."
