Agung Sangha Bio
Agung Sangha is a yoga and martial arts master. Originally from Bulgaria, he has dedicated his life to the exploration of the self-realization techniques inherent in many spiritual teachings. He was first introduced to yoga at the age of 8 when Swami Dev Murti visited his hometown in Bulgaria. After his introduction, his yoga journey continued with daily sadhana and austerities. His dream was to leave socialist Bulgaria so that he could practice yoga and his spiritual beliefs openly. Karma gave him the opportunity to immigrate to Switzerland in 1984. There, he began studying with Master Selvarajan Yesudian.
In 1986, Agung Sangha opened a kung-fu and yoga school in Schaffhausen, Switzerland and the Anima Mundi Creative Unfoldment Global Arts Laboratory in Zurich. It was at this laboratory that he cultivated the foundation of what would later become the Qi-Yo Multi-Yoga System. On New Year’s Eve 1990, Agung Sangha visited the grave of Nicholas Roerich in the Nagar village, Kullu Valley, India. There, during meditation, he received the message to form a spiritual and creative foundation in Eastern Europe.
All Who Seek Via All Paths was established a few months later in Bulgaria. In the years following, it flourished as the first spiritual center of synthesis in Eastern Europe. The center gathered spiritual seekers and healing artists from across the globe in order to present workshops and performances as well as, conduct lectures on esoteric disciplines. Agung Sangha’s other teacher, Helana Petrovna Blavatsky, provided him with ideas of synthesis that also served as a guiding light for the center in Bulgaria.
In April 1991, All Who Seek Via All Paths organized an international esoteric meeting in the Palace of Culture in Sofia which permanently transformed the spiritual movements of Eastern Europe. At the end of 1991, Agung Sangha received a personal initiation from Master Sri Chinmoy in Malta and was assigned the mission of bringing the Sri Chinmoy movement to Bulgaria, which he did in 1992. In 1994, Agung Sangha also brought Alice Bailey’s Lucis Trust to Bulgaria. Then, in 1995, he conducted research in India, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. In 1996, his research ended with an initiation in Bali, where Swami received his spiritual name of Agung (holy mountain of fire) and received a blessing to found the system later to be named Qi-Yo..
In 2003, Agung Sangha came to the USA, where he entered into a period of incubation. During this period, he tested and perfected the Qi-Yo method through his daily work with his students. The Qi-Yo Multi-Versal Yoga System finally debuted in 2012 in New York City, at the dawn of the new curve of our planetary evolution.
