"We practice Yoga to achieve Yoga."
Sri Sudarshan [Sujal H. V. Patel] has for lifetimes been exploring health, happiness and success in the human experience, being curious about the interconnection of universal nature, individual personality and their ideal balance. Sujal had been practicing Yoga consistently before it rose to popularity in the West and became widely known for postures, breathing and meditation. In his very first experience, Yoga revealed its infinitely positive outcomes to Sujal in a moment of pure revelation. Sujal's body became completely quiet, and his mind became absolutely calm, that the voice of truth was heard, and it said:
"Welcome to You."
Sujal started officially teaching Yoga at M.B. Patel Higher Secondary and Secondary School in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India, walking the footsteps of his well-adored great-grandfather, Purushottamdas “Daskaka” Patel, Member of the Indian Parliament, pioneer of education, national reformer and founder of the massive campus where Sujal was teaching. Sujal completed his Bachelor of Arts & Sciences degree from Indiana University in Bloomington, writing thesis papers on Gandhian Economics, Eastern and Western Religions, Global Sustainability, and the Ethnography of Yoga, as natural expressions of his interests in personal, professional and civil leadership. Sujal was licensed to teach Yoga by the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India. Yoga evolved him on the path of Self-Realization.Developing a deeper gratitude and aspiration for the sublime knowledge of the unbroken lineages of Yoga, Sujal would give his life to the mission of teaching, and to the Masters who have preserved this undeniably powerful, practical and profound gift by their shining example. Sujal accepted the title of Yoga Siromani, Jewel of the Crown of Yoga, and committed his life to upholding Dharma, virtue and purity in the world.
