This transcendental knowledge is being passed down through an unbroken line of self-realized yoga spiritual masters known as the Brahma Madhva Gaudiya Sampradaya whose teachings are known as Vaisnava Hinduism, or more specifically, Gaudiya Vaisnavism. The primary yoga scriptures of this disciplic succession are the Bhagavad-gita, Srimad Bhagavatam, Shri Chaitanya Charitamrita, and Sri Ishopanishad.
Lord Chaitanya appeared in this line of teachers some 500 years ago and inaugurated the kirtan movement (the singing and chanting of transcendental sound) as the supreme method of meditation and recommended process for self-realization in the modern age. Lord Chaitanya widely shared a yoga process that anyone can apply to their life, allowing them to awaken and cultivate their innate wisdom and spiritual love.
In recent times, prominent teachers coming in the line of Lord Chaitanya include: Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur (1838–1914), Srila Gaurakishora Dasa Babaji (1838–1915), Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur (1874–1937), and Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (1896–1977), who introduced this transcendental knowledge to the Western world. Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda (1948- ), a disciple of Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, established Science of Identity Foundation in an effort to pass on this transcendental knowledge.
Through this unbroken chain of self-realized yoga spiritual masters the treasure of yoga wisdom is being offered to everyone regardless of race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, age, or religion.
