About the Author
Michael Beloved (Yogi Madhvacharya) took his current body in 1951 in Guyana. In 1965, while living in Trinidad, he instinctively began doing yoga postures and tried to make sense of the supernatural side of life. Later in 1970, in the Philippines, he approached a Martial Arts Master named Mr. Arthur Beverford. He explained to the teacher that he was seeking a yoga instructor. Mr. Beverford identified himself as an advanced disciple of Sri Rishi Singh Gherwal, an astanga yoga master. Beverford taught the traditional Astanga Yoga with stress on postures, attentive breathing and brow chakra centering meditation.? In 1972, Michael entered the Denver Colorado Ashram of kundalini yoga Master Sri Harbhajan Singh. There he took instruction in bhastrika pranayama and its application to yoga postures. He was supervised mostly by Yogi Bhajan’s disciple named Prem Kaur. In 1979 Michael formally entered the disciplic succession of the Brahma-Madhava-Gaudiya Sampradaya through Swami Kirtanananda, who was a prominent sannyasi disciple of the Great Vaishnava Authority Sri Swami Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada, the exponent of devotion to Sri Krishna. However, Yoga has a mystic side to it, thus Michael took training and teaching empowerment from several spiritual masters of different aspects of spiritual development. Most of the instructions Michael received were given in the astral world. On that side of existence, his most prominent teachers were Sri Swami Shivananda of Rishikesh, Yogiraj Swami Vishnudevananda, Sri Babaji Mahasaya - the master of the masters of Kriya Yoga, Srila Yogeshwarananda of Gangotri - the master of the masters of Raj Yoga (spiritual clarity), and Siddha Swami Nityananda the Brahma Yoga authority.
