Siddhartha Krishna was raised in the family
tradition of Yoga. He was educated at the Kailas Ashram Brahma Vidya
Pitha, a monastery focusing on the teaching of Vedanta whose name is
related to well-known scholars and Masters such as Swami Vivekananda
(founder of the Ramakrishna Mission), Swami Ramatirtha (founder of the
Ramatirtha Mission), Swami Tapovan (Master of Swami Chinmayananda,
founder of the Chinmaya Mission), and Swami Sivananda (founder of the
Divine Life Society). Later, he taught courses on Sanskrit grammar and
Indian philosophy at the same monastery, and also edited their
publications on Vedanta. In his further study he has specialized on Veda
and Yoga philosophy as well and has published translations of and
commentaries on Sanskrit texts.
Siddhartha also writes
two columns in the quarterly magazine
Australian Yoga Life
and one column
in the Yoga Journal China.
Currently, he teaches at the Omkarananda Patanjala Yoga Centre in
Rishikesh, India, and as a guest instructor abroad.
Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas has produced
CDs of some of his philosophical discourses in
which he discusses the ancient texts in a way which supports the more
universal understanding of the Yogic wisdom and its source, the Veda, in
accordance with modern intellectual thought.
