I have an opportunity to meet Swami Sri Ramji .He runs the Keshav Ashram in Ujjali,Uttarkashi .
I was deeply touched with his presence and the energy, which he radiates . We had a very wonderful interaction . I am putting this interaction, online, that you can also be a part of it.
1. Do you think transformation can happen to human beings ?
Yes it can . The approach essentially has to be from Body . You see the humans, when they are young , had a natural state of concentration . But, when they matures these concentration evades . It might stay for some selected . But, in general people losses the ability to concentrate . This lack of concentration often results to different form of disease . One can approach to these disease, with different Yogas I teach , where we help people to concentrate, and cure from the set of diseases they faces.
2. Normally, we see the child is not concentrated at all . They seem to us very fickle minded . But you say that the child and the young people are very concentrated ?
The child is concentrated , but not in a manner the society wants him to be.
3. What is the difference between societies perception of concentration, and the natural concentration you talk about ?
The natural concentration is there, with every human being, when he was child . But, when he grows up, then the society perception of concentration, is projected in the mind of child . He looses his own natural concentration, and starts moving in the direction of the society . Society starts regulating his life , and the inner joy of living is lost . However , he always seeks for this natural concentration, through out his life , through accomplishment , expecting that the inner joy which he had, will come back to him .
This search for joy , continues throughout the life time , and the majority, does not find that state of consciousness again . For example, a forest seems to be disorganized, and not in the levels of human utility from outside . The garden, can look to him very organized . However , the fact remains that any garden is an artificial forest, made by human effort, which satisfies the needs of beauty around human habitat. The forest has his own natural beauty , which obviously cannot be remade by the artificial beauty of garden . Same way , child has a natural concentration which cannot be remade.
Yoga helps a person to connect with the natural concentration, which he had been gifted , when he was child . It is like , getting back to the state of child in you .
Why do we loose the natural concentration ?
We are gifted, with certain state of natural concentration. We loose it because deluded by the projection of the society . Still, an understanding deep down, remains, what the natural state of concentration is . So we keep searching , on different people , different things, this natural state of concentration . However we don't find it . When we comparatively access our state of natural concentration , with others we find ourselves less fortunate, and loose appreciation of it. That’s one reason we start loosing it . Because we think the others have it , and we don't have .
What are the education models you provide to get the natural concentration ?
There are some Meditation ,Asanas and Pranayama , I teach for transformation of energy.
Krishna –I – Pranayam with Meditation and 11 Asana
Krishna II – 25 Asanas ( Sitting)
Krishna III – 15 Asanas
Krishna IV – 12 Asanas
Krishna V – 25 Asanas (Standing)
One can come in my ashram in Uttarkashi ( email –firstname.lastname@example.org ) to learn this set of asanas and Pranayams .
Sometimes I also conduct different training camp around India . So one can join there also to learn ,how to transform energy by bringing back the natural concentration thru Yoga.

“What is an well organized World State ? “ . After hearing such a revealing music with one disciple of Pandit Ravishankar I was wandering , that it should be the ability to flow with things . While listening the sitar , I was completely into the process of hearing .For sometime, all the concerns and, thoughts and other afflictions were gone.
In the morning, I was talking about this flow with ‘Ongkie Tan’ and Indonesia born artist, and his insights where very revealing.
He has spend a long time in US, .At the same time , he has done his solo and group exhibitions, with different group of peoples and places around the world .
“An well organized state is a mental state, and it has nothing to do with the physical condition . I draw pictures of different shapes and types of my own spiritual experiences and lot of people come to ask me , why have you drawn this . I say , I don’t understand , I don’t know, I don't have to know ? .” –Ongkie says me .
I said , “sounds interesting”. He continues . “ I have seen a lot of people who doesn’t meditate ,however they remain in a deep spiritual state . Art is a form of meditation , I don’t draw just because , I think , I should draw. I draw because I love it, and it transforms me giving, new experience of life and living .Painting is a part of my being , I can’t live without it.”
