What’s the connection between Bhakti Yoga and Sufi Seer Bulleh Shah’s poetry?
Meet Mukti Narayan, I found him in the city of Haridwar. He was born deaf. He is an Auyrvedic medicine practitioner (Vaidya) and a Hindu (Vaishnav) philosopher.
His ability to read lips (most of the time) helps him converse like anyone else. He wasn’t very keen in speaking in front of the camera but his grandson convinced him otherwise.
I started the conversation by asking him – “Why is there a need for Kundalini Awakening in Yogic school of thought?”
