Guru Rattana is one of the most fruitful students of Yogi Bhajan and a spiritual authority in her own right. Early in her life she pursued an academic career. Her college graduation was followed by a year in Paris, studying French. Next, she went to Italy, where she stayed for the first year of her Masters in John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Then she went to Washington D.C. to complete her course. Her next destination was Geneva, where she wrote her Doctorate in Political Science. In the six years that she spent at the Graduate Institute of International Studies (University of Geneva), she also worked for the United Nations Environment Program.
Guru Rattana embraced the opportunity to influence the modern environmental and political studies and taught in many colleges and universities. However, at the age of twenty six her life let her into a different path. She studied Hatha Yoga for 8 years, Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Chi Gong. When in 1977 she met Yogi Bhajan, this faithful introduction into Kundalini Yoga and Yogi Ghajan teachings marked her conciseness forever.
Guru Rattana realized that our modern economic and political system is built upon false promises and ever out of reach ideals. She thought that the only way to break the circle of social and personal discontentedness is higher self-conciseness. Only if every one of us works towards achieving their true potential, the real change in our world is possible. As a result of this firm believe, Guru Rattana devoted herself to spreading the means for educating and inspiring people through achieving self-awareness and opening oneself to love. She has been an extremely proliferating writer, author of the four Kundalini Yoga and Meditation manuals, as well as numerous books. She is also the first of Yogi Bhajan’s students successfully established online presence and became famous for her Kundalini Yoga CDs and DVDs.
