My name is Dada Jagadiishananda (Andrew Rawlings),  Dada means ‘elder brother’.  In 1970 I learned meditation in Palo Alto, Ca from a traveling monk.  He told me how to begin. Intrigued by the combination of rationality and spirituality in ’77 I traveled to India to meet the Master and become a renunciate myself.  Attending training centers in Benares and in Katmandu, I studied the theory and practice of Tantra Yoga, the most ancient meditation practice of India.  I traveled to many different countries disseminating the teachings of my guru.  Since 2004 I have been in the United States teaching meditation privately and fulfilling different responsibilities as a senior monk of the Path of Bliss organization.
