Swami Santhiprasad's final spiritual Yoga Master

Bhaskara Pillai Swamikal

Swami Santhiprasad's final spiritual Yoga Master.  

Bhaskara Pillai Swamikal
was born in February 1, 1928. His father was Padmanabha Pillai, a man of truth and honesty.

After his secondary school education he joined the Indian Army and had undergone the experience of war twice. This had intensified his spiritual search which was there in him all along. He became a great devotee of Mother Goddess Adi Parasakthi.

He was doing Devi Upasana at late nights while all his colleagues were sleeping with out any one in the higher ups noticed it, as it was against the practice in the Army to remain awake at resting time. He very often has had the vision of Mother Goddess Mookambika during this period.

After his retirement he served the Maha Raja of Travancore as his driver. While he was living in Mangalore in connection with his job, he continued his usual night long Sadhana. He used to integrate within himself and remained in the unified state of consciousness every time he was meditating. He felt the presence of Mother Goddess wherever he went.

He converted the biggest room in his small house as the temple for Mother Goddess where as his wife, three girl children and ill stricken father-in-law where staying in utter congestion. Mother Goddess was his first choice in his life. Whatever he offered, especially the Kumkum and sacred ashes were felt received by Mother Goddess with profound satisfaction. In meditation he understood that the Universe was evolved and will be submerged as a big pulsation!

He was simply following the guidance of the Mother Goddess as a completely surrendered Devotee. All the great Masters of the bygone era such as Kola Maharishi, Buddha, Jesus Christ, Mohammed the Prophet, Adi Sankara were all living entities for him. He felt their presence all along.

Bhaskara Pillai Swamikal had identified all the subsidiary psychical energy centers which according to him are divinities and Masters.

Swamikal explored the hidden and forgotten areas of spirituality, which were once in vogue among the great Saints of ancient times.

Siva Raja Yoga Master Bhaskara Pillai Swamikal, Kerala, South India

Swamikal was always
alert day and night. No one had ever seen him sleeping. With his great alertness he could see the divine pulsations flowing through his channels and chakras. He had elaborately studied the science of pulsations. According to him absolute alertness is what an aspirant needed for spiritual evolution.

Swamikal had no personified Master. His Master was the consciousness itself. He was a man simple to the core. He had never shown any signs of extraordinariness. He was neither looking for fame nor for money and also never wanted people to follow him.

His spiritual search was so subtle and hidden
that even people who were very near him didn't know the depth of his knowledge.

He used to say to his disciples that his pooja and dhyan are for the welfare of the Universe and for the existence of divinities.

The first disciple of Swamiji was Raja Atma Ram who introduced Swami Santhiprasad to Swamikal and he in turn introduced Shri. Kanaka Raghavan and Shri. Raja Mohan. Mauro Benati, the healer and Anjela Vindigni, Yoga expert are the very few who got personal contact with Swamiji.

Swami had his wife daughters and two grand children.

A week before his Maha Samadhi he had the vision of Adi Seshan coming near him and had taken him to his abode.

Swamiji was waiting for his disciple Santhi to come from Europe to do his last rights. On January 4, 1999 Santhi arrived in Trivandrum and visited Swamiji at night. The next morning on January 5, 1999 after his usual morning duty of dropping children to school he sat down at 9.40 and left his mortal abode.

I have committed myself to be available always for all of you and share whatever I have understood during the course of journey of my life, both in the Indian spiritual Yoga traditions and beyond, as a seeker if it is of help for you. What we need in this world is few individuals who could commit themselves to explore their own inner world! It is really difficult to find few of them. However, I commit myself to be available always!

 One day I decided to change my life and do something for myself after rearing 4 children that had grown up and moved on with their own lives. So I packed up my house and flew to India to join the School of Santhi. 

When I sat in front of Swami Santhiprasad I felt as though all the questions I had ever needed to know about life had been answered

Not only was I given a

professional Yoga Teacher Training

but I was able to unlock deep spiritual gifts inside of me that I never knew existed.

The course taught
me how to live in an authentic manner

and see through the many veils of illusion that were inhibiting my spiritual growth. 

The day the course ended in India, I flew back to Australia and started immediately to teach.

The course gave
me confidence and a professional manner of teaching

I was able to impart to all of my students the 'Spirit of Santhi'. The training made it possible for me to hold successful workshops on Yoga, Meditation and the Kundalini chakra system in Australia and Bali, Indonesia.

I thoroughly recommend the
course to any aspiring Yoga Teachers

 School of Santhi,
the best Yoga Teacher Training School in India

Have the most
amazing Yoga Master and spiritual teacher Swami Santhiprasad

I hope everybody interested in Yoga will be able to meet him.

It is a blessing that Santhi with his long experience of Yoga still is around teaching classical Yoga.

Santhi is always interesting to listen to. He is so fun. He is so experienced. He is so inspiring.

We all need Swami Santhiprasad's words
of wisdom.

We all need
to be blessed with Santhi's smile

I am the first to recommend Swami Santhiprasad and School of Santhi Yoga School in India

 I am delighted and most grateful to have completed my teacher training with the School of Santhi.

The organization behind the teaching was splendid
and the delivery was superb.

Absolutely everyone involved in the process from the master, visiting teachers, cooks, cleaners, to the supporting and administrative staff delivered their service with passion, enthusiasm, love and pure commitment.

This was sustained consistently throughout the month. It is best summed up by a fellow student when asked by a stranger about her experience of the course:


I had heard from a previous student that Master Santhi is a great teacher - yet I was absolutely astounded to have experienced it first hand:

Santhis teachings show a great depth in insight, knowledge, experience and sensitivity

which in totality is, quite simply, mind-blowing. He is the best story teller I have ever come across: we all enjoyed Santhi's truly inspirational lectures, often underpinned by personal accounts, shared with much humility, grace and humor

 My experience at
the School of Santhi once again reassured me of how you attract the experiences in your life that you need at the perfect moment.

I was open to bringing a deeply inspiring adventure into my life and a deeply inspiring adventure is exactly what I received.

The location was perfect.

Natural. Beautiful. In the mountains and forests. By a healing river. Trees. Birds. Close to the elements.

What more could I ask for?

The teachings were perfect

clear and well structured; enlightening should I say.

All the Santhi staff and helpers were open, transparent and friendly.

The food was healthy and well balanced.

The school was professional

with everyone always greeting you with a smile.

The Yoga Asana practice pushed me to my limits and I really feel the difference!

You are treated as a unique individual with the School of Santhi. It really felt like you were a part of a small family, and everyone was welcomed with fresh, open arms.

If you are
looking to be challenged on all levels then the School of Santhi is a great place

to continue your own serious (but not too serious!) personalized journey to oneness.

The course gave me the traditional interpretation of the true nature of Yoga

and showed me how truly deep it’s roots go, and how it relates to all aspects of life!

It was truly a great introductory course that is packed to the brim with information and opportunities for growth, self healing, self realization and self-discovery.

Santhi passes
over his wisdom in a very down to earth, personal and
unique way

so that you can truly understand and relate to his words with your own life experiences, through the honest revealing of Santhi’s own life experiences and HIS own human journey!

He was always open to questions and easily approachable.

I am a changed man!
I am not the same person as when
I came

Kristen Slater:

 I enjoyed my month in Kallar terribly.

The training
far exceeded my expectations

and even being home, I am frequently reminded of all I learned and experienced during my time at the School of Santhi.

Prior to coming to the program, I had hoped to increase my knowledge related to yoga as well as an opportunity refine and improve my asanas.

All that was accomplished but
I also left with a very personal shift in perspective.

The training has changed me in very meaningful ways and
I believe it has put me on a path to continue my spiritual journey.

I am amazed that all this could have taken place in such a short amount of time.

I would like take a minute to thank Swami Santhi, Kannan, Kumar and all the support staff who made the training and the time in Kallar so wonderful.

Swami's method of presenting information was so engaging and came from a place of truth and it made it easy to be in long lectures every day.

I was always exited for Swami's discussions

because I knew that the information he was giving us was such a special and unique gift and his delivery was so effortless and personal that it never felt like a class or a chore.

asana classes were wonderful

and now that I am back in my regular practice, I am able to notice the vast improvement in my practice.

fearlessness in challenging students could only be successfully accomplished because of his

knowledge of
how the body works and where the limit is for each individual.

Having Kumar on site daily was also such a gift. I always felt taken care of and was so appreciative to have someone to go to if anything was needed.

Kumars energy
and bright spirit was
felt throughout the
house every day.

My month at
School of Santhi was an experience I will never forget

Christine Dinsmore:
 Words can not begin to express the gratitude that I felt towards the two of you. I began my spiritual journey 8 years ago and it has led me to School of Santhi!

Little did I know that the knowledge, wisdom and kindness that you have been gracious enough to share with me this past month, is what I have been truly searching for.

I will leave here knowing two things:
One, that

I now have
the tools I need
to create my own happiness and live my life the way I have always desired to.

And two, that there is nothing I can do to ever repay you.

You are two shining spirits who have profoundly .....
