Satguru Sirio Ji
Master Sirio had a spontaneous spiritual awakening at the age of nineteen in 1972. Under the impact of this experience, he began an intensive practice of Yoga and meditation.
In 1973 he went overland to India in search of The Master who would guide him in his inner journey. He recognized such in the person of Master Sant Kirpal Singh , a character of great charisma. On the twenty fifth of April he was initiated personally by the Master into the practice of Surat Shabd Yoga and had a great inner experience.
After the Initiation Sirio could not help but sit in meditation for the next two years. The inner upliftment was such as to make the practice extremely pleasant and easy. Sirio Ji says that in that period of two years he did nothing but meditate all day and many were the fantastic experiences that were granted to him that completely changed the quality of his life.
After the death of Kirpal Singh in 1977 he joined a Master in Rajasthan, Sant Ajaib Singh, also a disciple of Kirpal Singh, and became His Italian representative. At the age of twenty-five he was asked to give the Initiation into contact with the divine Light. He was the first European representative of Ajaib Singh ji and had to travel to various European countries to give Initiation.
From that time to this day he has continued to impart such Initiation.
Sirio Ji says: "Ajaib Singh was a man of great holiness who lived in the Thar desert in Rajasthan. I had a long spiritual relationship of twenty years with Him and He is the one who turned me into a real man."
Since his first meditation with Master Kirpal in 1973 , even before his Initiation, Sirio ji felt that his destiny was to become a master of this path. In the coming years this was confirmed in many ways and from many aspects, especially during long meditation retreats that lasted several months.
After the death of his second Master Sirio ji took up this role by his Master's will.
From 1973 to now Sirio ji has conducted many meditation retreats at the Sant Bani Ashram in Italy and abroad, first as a representative of his Master and then in his role as a Master. In addition, he also made long retreats alone that lasted months.
Sirio Ji does not accept any payment for his seminars and retreats He makes his living by other means, but this is secondary to His great work as Master and allows Him to give full attention to those attending His retreats. He also keeps the Ashram in a pristine condition doing almost everything by himself. He says that someone who claims to have the divine in him/her must be able to manifest it in the environment that surrounds him otherwise these are just unfounded claims.
