About Trustees

Sri Shivarudra Balayogi (Babaji) - Spiritual Head

Joined the New Life Global Trust as a trustee and spiritual patron to guide the spiritual activities of the trust since 1st March 2014. Born on 20th September, 1954 in Kolar, South India and after qualifying as Botany Science Graduate, he found his guru Sri Shivabalayogi Maharaj called "Swamiji" by his devotees. Following Swamiji's Mahasamadhi, the dropping away of the physical body and final union with the Divine, on 28th March 1994, Baba was placed into deeper meditation, on 10th November 1994 and was initiated by "Swamiji" into the most intense and continuous meditation known as "Tapas". For 5 years, Baba meditated for an average of 20 hours a day, adopting the internal methods given to him by Shri Swamiji to eradicate the ego completely.

In November 1999, "Tapas" came to its natural end by Baba becoming "Self-realized". Baba is known as Yogi, someone who has fulfilled the path of Yoga and attained union with Divine Consciousness.

Baba Shivarudra Balayogi (name given by Swamiji on his completion of "Tapas") has gone beyond all illusions of the mind and exists in Absolute Peace. Since completion of "Tapas" Babaji as he is now called by his devotees goes around the world preaching the practice of "Meditation" as a thought management technique and to attain peace.
