At 15 years of age, Dean Das commenced Yoga practice. In 1974 he travelled to India and met his Guru, revered kundalini Siddha Master, Swami Prakashananda Saraswati of Sapta Shringi mountain, Nasik, Western India.
Dean Das was ‘initiated’ into the Yogic sadhana of kundalini yoga meditation, an esoteric tradition belonging to the 9th C Siddha/Nath lineage, in which ‘internal Yoga’ occurs spontaneously. The process continued over a period of 7 years until the goal of meditation known as Self-Realization was attained.
Dean Das returned to Australia, studied, had a family, and worked in academia and in Forensic Psychology Consultancy. Dean Das has trained meditation students for the past 30 years.
He founded Melbourne-based, Mind-Yoga (Aust) in 2010, conducting Courses and Intensives throughout Australia. He is known for his humorous and engaging teaching style. Dean Das is currently working on a forthcoming book, ‘The Awakening of Kundalini – from Meditation to Realization’.
