Who is Raja Choudhury

Raja Choudhury 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. In a personal quest of over 20 years, Raja has comparatively explored most of the great (and some unknown) wisdom traditions of the world and has experienced many teachings and transformative methodologies firsthand. He now wants to share this magical adventure and discoveries with everyone.


Raja’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 went on to become a Webby-winning digital creative director in New York where this awakening occurred. Raja then created numerous documentary films on wisdom and consciousness, including Spirituality in the Modern World with Ken Wilber and Traleg Rinpoche; Yoga: Aligning to the Source; and acclaimed films on many great spiritual teachers. In 2014 he was awarded India’s prestigious National Film Award for his film, The Quantum Indians. He’s currently making a film for PBS on Swami Vivekananda called First Guru. 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.


In his own spiritual quest, he was initiated first into Kriya Yoga in 1998, and went on to take deep initiations into Raja Yoga, advanced Kriya Yoga, Trika, and then Sri Vidya from Guruji Amritananda of Devipuram. Raja sees life as one continuous quest for inner awakening and illumination and shares his adventures and discoveries with all.


Raja also practices Aikido and Qigong 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 ideas. In the past year, he has taught and initiated over 900 people 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. Raja lives with his wife, daughter and a cocker spaniel named Max in New Delhi.
