YOGMATA KEIKO AIKAWA
Yogmata Keiko Aikawa is the first non-Indian woman to realize the ultimate state of samadhi.
Since the 1970s, she has developed and organized what she calls Aikawa Yoga, and is working to spread this yoga in Japan. Her love of humanity has also led her to understand three things: the essence of human beings; that it is possible to show them the power of self-healing;and that human beings can transmit anugraha shakti to heal others.
In 1985, Yogmata Keiko Aikawa met the legendary great master, Hari Baba. Since then, she has undergone austere and rigorous training at altitudes of between 5,000 and 6,000 meters in the Himalayas. This training quickened and strengthened her mind and body and, under the guidance of Hari Baba, it took her a relatively short time to attain samadhi.
Between 1991 and 2007, Yogmata Keiko Aikawa publicly demonstrated samadhi on a total of 18 occasions to inspire and uplift human consciousness so that world peace might be achieved. In the process, she attained ultimate enlightenment, merging her entire being with the Oneness of God.
Her tireless contributions to helping humanity have resulted in foreign government’s acknowledging her efforts. In 2007, she received the title Mahamandaleshwar (the Supreme Master of the Universe) from Juna Akara, the largest spiritual austerities association in India. Some of the donations given her have gone to charities in India for ambulances and humanitarian care.
She has travelled widely to take part in and lead seminars and workshops, having visited countries in Europe and Asia, as well as the United States. She resides in Japan, where she oversees her foundation and instructs the next generation of messengers in the ways of peace and love, meditation, and samadhi. Her global mission is to radiate love and kindness to all, wherever she might be.
