showing you how to
be your own guru
Who is Raja Choudhury
Raja Choudhury (Rajada as his students lovingly call him – Da means elder brother or advisor) aims to disrupt human consciousness and awaken each of us to our true evolutionary potential using his deep knowledge of Kundalini Shakti, Tantra, and Kriya Yoga experienced through the rational lens of neuroscience, bio-hacking, and psychology. He wants everyone to wake up their Inner Guru and realize the Light they hold within. In a personal quest of over 26 years, Rajada has comparatively explored most of the world's great (and some unknown) wisdom and esoteric traditions and has experienced teachings and transformative methodologies firsthand.
Rajada’s own shift occurred in 2006 when he underwent a dramatic Kundalini awakening that rewired his system and opened up a new universe of potential. Raja initially started life as an Architect from London’s Architectural Association and then became a Webby-winning digital creative director in London and New York where this awakening occurred. Raja then moved to India and created numerous documentary films on wisdom and consciousness, including Spirituality in the Modern World with Ken Wilber, Yoga: Aligning to the Source, and acclaimed films on many great spiritual teachers like Karan Singh, Sri M and his own teacher Guruji Amritananda. In 2014, he was awarded India’s prestigious National Film Award for The Quantum Indians on Raman, Bose, and Saha. His new film America’s First Guru on Swami Vivekananda is being released on PBS in the US in May 2024.
Raja gave a TED talk on Indian Wisdom for Today’s World in 2012 and a TEDx talk in 2015 on Yoga. His talks on Kundalini, Shiva, the Third Eye, and Meditation are very popular on YouTube where he has over146,000 subscribers. He is a very popular teacher on The Shift Network and runs an advanced mystery school, A Thousand Suns Academy teaching people to become their own Light. Raja sees life as one continuous quest for inner awakening and illumination and shares his adventures and discoveries with all who meet him with deep wisdom, humor, love, and humility.
Rajada practices Martial Arts and plays Squash and is a passionate student of neuroscience, history, esoteric traditions, and the mind. His teachings and films are a syncretic blend of Eastern and Western thinking. In the past 5 years, he has taught and initiated over 4,500 seekers into the magic of Kundalini awakening, the deeper truths of Tantra and he shares his Shakti energy with them and the world via the Internet and live events. Raja lives with his wife, daughter and a cocker spaniel named Max in Princeton, New Jersey.

My Mission is to help awaken you to your own Inner Light and discover the Power(Shakti), Consciousness(Shiva), Balance(Samata), Awareness(Turiya), and Bliss (Ananda) available inside YOU. Through my films, courses, mentorships, talks, writings, designs, and ideas, I try to help you discover how to Be Your Own Guru and Be The Light Unto Yourself. Religions, Gurus, and Dogmas can sometimes be the biggest obstacles to a genuinely Religious or Mystical Experience that is completely your own. They should be your friends, companions, and guides on this Pathless Path instead. Free yourself of all crutches and learn how to be A Light in the World. Then, guide and help others, do wonders, and practice magic in a world full of chaos, illusion, pain, and uncertainty.
