Dr. Gaurav Agrawal’s Bio
Dr. Gaurav Agrawal an experienced philosophy and meditation teacher. A professor of clinical psychology in an Indian university he is well versed in both ancient and modern sciences of mind. He was born in a religious Hindu family which gave him chance to learn and practice Indian spiritual values from the beginning.He is a simple and married man living with his family. He brings various small illustrations from the scriptures and other sources to explain a difficult and dry subject to look interesting, entertaining and connected to daily life. This way yoga seems easy to follow and important in our daily lives. He also encourages debates and invites the students to take part openly by relating their own understanding and experiences. For many westerners, eastern ideas are difficult to follow as they need to believe some ideas of a different world. But, being a scientist and researcher Gaurav does not ask for believing and asks his students to test the things by logic, reason and experimentation. He brings his understanding of modern psychology in his teachings and views the yoga and meditation as an ancient system of understanding personality and therapeutic guidelines. Gaurav specializes in Meditation Techniques and philosophy of Yoga. He teaches the meditation by various techniques ranging from one minute to slowly-slowly taking up to 50-60 Minutes. This way the practitioner never realizes that he is learning meditation which was earlier so difficult for him. He decided to choose the career of a meditation and philosophy teacher as he says it is a noble profession and also gives him the chance to practice the spiritual techniques in his own life. He honestly tries to follow what he teaches. One of his favorite stories is below: One new disciple told his master that when he meditated in the meditation retreat he suffered the pain in the body and he could not concentrate. He had great troubles in sitting in the meditation.
The master replied with smile, That will pass. Nothing is permanent. After few months the disciple told his master with great excitement that he had been getting success in the meditation as he was having some wonderful experiences and he was seeing various beautiful visions in the meditation. The master smiled again and told, That will pass. Nothing is permanent.
