About the author: Marshall Govindan has practised Kriya Yoga intensively as a disciple of Babaji since 1969. He studied and practised Kriya Yoga in India for nearly four years with Yogi S.A.A. Ramaiah, a direct disciple of Babaji, assisting him in the establishment and development of 23 Kriya Yoga centers around the world over two decades. He practised Babaji's Kriya yoga an average of 8 hours per day for 18 years. After fulfilling certain rigorous conditions, he was asked by Babaji on Christmas day, 1988, to go and teach Kriya yoga to others under his guidance and inspiration. In 1990 he was married for the first time, to Gaetane Annai Ouellet of Quebec in a traditional ceremony at the Chidambaram Shiva temple in South India. In 1991 he authored the bestselling book Babaji and the 18 Siddha Kriya Yoga Tradition. In 1992, he and his wife, Annai founded Babaji's Kriya Yoga Ashram on a beautiful mountain top, 40 acre estate. It is located at 196 Mountain Road, St Etienne de Bolton, Quebec, Canada J0E 1P0., near Montreal. They organize initiations and retreats here year round as well as summer camps which host a variety of teachers. In 1993 he edited and published the first english translation of Thirumandiram: A Classic of Yoga and Tantra by Siddha Thirumoolar. At the end of 1994 he retired after 25 years of work in some of North America's largest corporations, where he integrated the practise of Kriya Yoga with a life of dedicated service as an economist and later as a leading professional and author in the field of computer systems control and auditing.
