Naganath is a Nath Tantrika Yogi and his cryptonym translates as Lord of The Serpent. Serpent magick and mythology has deep analogous roots to alchemical processes throughout the ages and across cultures, and vibes closely to that of Kundalini Shakti or the Power Serpent Goddess who resides dormant in all individuals at the Muladhara Chakra until enlivened, excited, and channeled up the Sushumna, piercing all of the subsequent energy centers/chakras until ultimately joining her groom, Shiva, at the Sahasrara Chakra, allowing for the attainment, cultivation and development of certain spiritual powers or Siddhis.
Naganath’s spiritual development and journey took formation in 1989 when he was studying Japanese at university, which subsequently inspired him to visit Nippon, the Land of the Rising Sun. It was on that sacred island of ancient traditions, where Naga found resonance within their Buddhist temples, gardens, rituals and ceremonies. From here, Naga delved eastward into the Tao igniting an insatiable appetite for Eastern Philosophies, which led him through the Himalayas sourcing various streams of Indian Thought. This ardent pursuit led the neophyte to meeting his spiritual mentor Dr. Robert Svoboda, renowned author and scholar of various Tantric Sciences, and Naga’s Guru, Sri Kapilnath, Imperator Magus Mundi of the International Nath Order (INO), in the years 2003 and 2004 respectively. After 12 years of sincere study and practice as a Tantrika in this Nath Sampradaya, Naganath decided to display his attainment and was granted a Charter to Initiate earnest seekers into the INO and guide them along The Path. The International Nath Order is a modern Nath Tantric sect established by Shri Gurudev Mahendranath with its roots in the Adi-Nath Sampradaya and Uttara Kaula Sampradayas of which Shri Mahendranath was holder of parampara and Guru. The Guru tradition and initiation of the International Nath Order includes wisdom teachings from Hindu, Soto Zen and Taoist sources plus practices rediscovered by the science and yoga of meditation, contemplation, mantra and ritual.
Naganath is the Chakra-Raja at Nagaloka Dhuni in the jungle between two rivers, where he continues advancing, refining, and expanding his studies and practices of Yoga, Tantrik Puja Rituals, Mantras, Meditation, Ayurveda, Jyotish, Vaastu, and Twilight Yoga. Naga, as teacher, annually sheds light on these esoteric subjects at the Modern Mystery Yoga School he founded in 2015, the Tantric Alchemy Institute, with the hope of bridging the western yoga world to the ancient practices and processes of true spiritual development and attainment.
Naganath is also co-creator of and plant-based chef at The Sanctuary at Two Rivers in Costa Rica. Chef Naga released his internationally acclaimed Gaia Gourmet Vegan and Vegetarian Cookbook (Foreword by Dr. Robert Svoboda) in 2017.
