a thousand suns’ teachers are…
disrupting our understanding of human consciousness and awakening you to…
your evolutionary potential with a thoroughly modern interpretation and experience of Kundalini Shakti, Tantra, and Kriya Yoga
Raja deeply believes that each and every one of us can experience the magic of this loving and empowering energy.
His personal spiritual quest began over 20 years ago when he was initiated into Kriya Yoga in 1998. He then went on to take deep initiations into Raja Yoga, advanced Kriya Yoga, Trika, and then Sri Vidya from Guruji Amritananda of Devipuram. In 2006, Raja underwent a dramatic Kundalini awakening that rewired his system and opened up a new universe of potential. His experience of life is as one continuous quest for inner awakening and illumination and seeks to share his discoveries and revelations with all who seriously seek this level of transformation and evolution.
Since his own Kundalini awakening, he has been deeply committed to continuing with his quest to go deeper, discovering, experiencing, and sharing the mysteries held in the great, and often little known, wisdom traditions of the world, and to distill them into practical, modern-day methods and tools that can transform your life.
Raja has emerged as one The Shift Network’s most popular teachers, initiating and guiding over 2,500 students into the mysteries of Kundalini, Tantra, and the Third Eye. In 2018, he established “A Thousand Suns Academy” to provide a platform for his syncretic blend of Eastern and Western teachings, including those from the traditions of Kundalini, Tantra and Consciousness studies. The virtual academy also serves as a place to for you to learn and apply these teachings in your own life and to join in community with other committed seekers. The courses, workshops, retreats and media found here can awaken you to your own experience of this energy, supporting you in navigating its many attributes and empowering your journey to self-realization.
Raja is currently making a film for PBS, “First Guru,” documenting the path of bringing Indian wisdom to the United States. He lives in New Delhi with his wife, daughter, and a cocker spaniel called Max.
