Yogmata Keiko Aikawa
Yogmata Keiko Aikawa is the first and only woman, as well as the only foreigner, ever to become a Siddha Master by attaining the ultimate stage of Meditation and Yoga (Samadhi) in the Himalayas. For over 40 years, as an authority on Meditation and Yoga, she has taken an active part in nurturing these practices in Japan.
In 1985, Yogmata Aikawa encountered the legendary Great Master, Hari Baba, and with his guidance, underwent austere training at an altitude of 5,000 to 6,000 meters in the Himalayas. She subsequently attained the ultimate Samadhi, which means taking total control of, and transcending, one’s mind and body, thus becoming One with the source of the universe.
From 1991 to 2007, she performed eighteen public viewings of Samadhi throughout India to attest the truth and promote world peace. In 2007, Yogmata Aikawa received the title "Mahamandaleshwar" (The Supreme Master of the Universe) from the largest spiritual austerities association in India, Juna Akara.
She regularly holds lectures and meditation guidance workshops in many countries all over the world, including the United States.
