“The real teacher is the teaching itself. The true lineage is the practice itself.”
Sri Maheshwari Prasad Dubeyji
Rajiv (Rajivji) Kapur’s Self-realization was guided by his Kriya Yoga Guru, Maheshwari Prasad Dubey (Dubeyji) and his Advaita Guru, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi. Rajivji’s dual path is unique, placing him among two of the most prominent traditions of Kriya and Advaita Vedanta.
Rajivji stresses that in addition to his many years of hard Kriya practice with Masters of different lineages, particularly with his Guruji Sri Dubeyji, and then his non-dual awakening under Ed Muzika (as laid down in the book Autobiography of a Jnani), that it took him another four years of hard work, perseverance and vigilance to weed out all the seeds of vasanas in order to gain his final Self-Realization. It was the blessing and Grace of Sri Ramana that guided him through his final Self-Realization.
