A student of Philosophy and Journalism, Jyotii was open to any challenge that life would throw at her. Introduced to yoga at an early age, she practiced it as a form of exercise. After early marriage and motherhood, she grew restless as she deeply felt that life should mean something more. Looking for that spark, she experimented with new age techniques such as Reiki, Magnified Healing, Osho Meditations, Crystal Healing and Native American Shamanic Rites. Her spiritual flowering occurred after her meeting with the Himalayan Kriya Master, Yogiraj Siddhanath in 1998.
She now lives in Chandigarh, India, and teaches Hamsa Yoga and Mahavatar Babaji Kriya Yoga of Yogiraj Siddhanath. She writes extensively for local newspapers and is an activist for farmers’ rights in her city, especially against forcible land acquisition by the state administration. She also helps national level farmers’ organisations to spread public awareness about their issues. She believes that in any fragile eco system such as ours, one individual’s behaviour affects the life of all others sharing that universe; hence each individual has an obligation to contribute towards the positive growth of all others.
