Kriya yogamaster, musician
Imram was born in the Caucasus to a family of teachers. At the age of two,
Imram began to take an active interest in music. He intuitively learned to play
various musical instruments.
In addition to creative pursuits, Imram was also interested in science. As a child,
he spent hours conducting chemical experiments with test tubes and reagents,
and showed some extraordinary abilities.
The most important milestones in Imram’s life were the study of Taoism,
Hinduism, the Western concept of magicism (Theurgy), and an interest in martial
arts (the mystical practice of body alchemy).
Once Imram realised the unity of all religions and denominations, he embarked
on the Path of Holy Science while maintaining respect for all faiths… on the only
true and universal Path, the Path of the Transformation of Consciousness
through yoga of the High Path!
Imram had visited various sacred sites back in his youth. He later spent a lot of
time in the Indian Himalayas, performing sadhana (Sanskrit: Sādhanā, साधना, meaning “spiritual yoga practice”) and long periods in asceticism, as well as studying Sanskrit and the Vedas with their laws.
Imram met with representatives of different faiths while on his journey. He
communicated directly with Himalayan sages, enlightened Masters, the avatar
Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Mahavatar Babaji (the teacher of Lahiri Mahasaya), from
whom he received initiation into the Holy Science of Kriya, as well as with
Babaji’s immortal disciple in the forests of Jaipur (he was 1,900 years old at the
time of the meeting), with Karmapa Buddha XVII, His Holiness the Dalai Lama
XIV, who gave him several initiations.
In 2008, Imram formed a Guru Sankalpa (a contract of spiritual cooperation with
another master) with the famous Himalayan yogi Somnath Giri Maharaj Pilot
Babaji (known as Pilot Baba).
There is evidence that Imram is the incarnation of a Tibetan lama, carrying within
him the experience of Himalayan mystics of Tibetan Buddhism.
Master Imram keeps in touch with people who are recognized as saints in their
denominations: the Christian ascetic and Odessa elder, Schema-Archimandrite
Jonah (now deceased), the representative of Islam Mahmood Baba, and some
other masters liberated during their lifetime.
“Teachers who came to help on the spiritual path have always been a great help
to me, and they also helped invisibly, in their bodies of light… showing me so
much and revealing the Essence of things.
By blessing me, Avatar Shri Sathya Sai Baba helped in the evolution of
consciousness (Soul), helped me to remember so much (my Essence, Atman)
and Personally led the spiritual practice in the world, by being invisibly
Spiritual discipline or ascesis is the most important part of spiritual practice, and
allows you to be closer to your Satguru Master, the Higher Self. States of deep
mediation and Samadhi occurred spontaneously. Later, these spontaneous
states were transformed into conscious practice and achievement of deep, high
states, beyond the conventional world…
From the very beginning, I prayed to Babaji for His grace, the tranfer of the Holy
Science of Kriya yoga. I prayed day and night for many years, thinking of only
One thing, that the immortal Himalayan saint Babaji initiated me for my own
realisation and to help the world, since the main goal is to Serve the Highest in
the world. I received this Initiation thanks to His grace. I have been practising the
Holy Science of Kriya yoga since 2002 as a Kriya initiate.”
Initiation into the Holy Science of Kriya
Mahavatar Babaji materialized His immortal body and gave Imram the holy
blessing (initiation, admission) into Kriya in 2002, when Imram was in asceticism
in the Caucasus Mountains.
In 2003, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba gave Imram the Shaktipat, and later
blessed him to work in the world.
Since 2004 and to this day, Imram has initiated tens of thousands of people into
the Holy Science of Kriya.
“For many years, I practiced sadhana, the spiritual practice. It was very severe
ascesis and they were very difficult practices, pranayamas and complex yoga
techniques. I always felt that I was missing something important. I could do a lot
but felt no tranquility of the Soul.
I prayed day and night that I would have the opportunity in this life to be initiated
into the super technique of Kriya Babaji. Because I knew that this was the system
I could remember from past incarnations, and I needed to go all the way to the
end, achieving complete liberation during my lifetime, in order to help the
“To be in the world, but not of the world”(Ascended Master Jesus).
In 2002, my companion and I went to the Caucasus Mountains. It was winter,
February, and we were practising in ascesis there, in the gorge, under rather
harsh conditions. Food was running out and there was only a small amount left.
We were doing special pranayamas and we had a little book called 18 Siddha
Kriya yoga Tradition, written by Marshall Govindan.
We are grateful to him, and to everyone who writes spiritual books and thus
inspires people, illuminating the way with their service and helping the world.
Back then, it was good inspiration for many people.
My companion was reading the book that morning, when I returned from my
morning practice. Without expecting anything, and without any thoughts, I sat
down beside a small stove to warm my body, because it was quite cold. We were
surrounded by snow, the mountains, forest, gorge and a small hut.
When I relaxed, a space opened up on the north side of the wall and Sri
Aurobindo materialised. Aurobindo Swami Ghosh is a very high Soul, he is
considered an Avatar in India, a high Spirit. Swami Aurobindo is a disciple of
Babaji and He wrote a work called Integral Yoga. In that moment, I was a little
bewildered, amazed and very much delighted, all at once. I began to think: why
did he come, why, why — this was the work of a mind that was incredibly excited
and intrigued. But since I was in a deep state of relaxation after the pranayama, I
didn’t allow myself to think too intensely.
Meanwhile, Aurobindo was looking at me with a living face, it was not an image,
it was not a picture, it was a bust — a living face from a parallel dimension, who
had emerged and came towards me. I thought that since he has come, it means
that something very important is about to happen. At that point, he told me, “Stop
thinking and wait,” so I switched off my brain and just sat there. Then he
The air suddenly split apart and completely opened up, there was a flash of Light,
like a funnel from another dimension. The One whom my Soul so longed to see
appeared before me, the One to whom my whole being called out to… The
eternal Yogi, the Holy of Holies, the immortal Babaji! He appeared in the air right
in front of me, quickly but in such a way as I could understand how it was
happening. It is very difficult to describe, it was an energy that arose right then.
His glowing smile filled me with true Joy. He was covered in vibhuti, a garland of
flowers, and raised his hand (abhi mudra) to bless me.
He came in response to my prayers for help. He blessed me in Kriya and in this
It is difficult for me to describe what I felt in that moment, it is hard to talk about. It
was as if the whole universe fit inside me in that moment and I became one with
I gathered myself and threw myself at His feet with a great desire to leave with
Him. But He left me in this world and disappeared. He disappeared faster than I
could follow him into another dimension, for I wanted to leave with Him. But it
must not have been the right time, for the space closed.
I was in a special state for a while, and my heart felt like it would burst from
complex feelings. It was hard to bear. For at least 3 or 4 hours, I was in a state of
altered consciousness, I was going through a spiritual experience. It is
indescribable and unforgettable. It is divine.
After that, Babaji came to me twice, one of those times in a female body. It was a
unique meeting, He let me know that it was Him. At first, I did not recognise Him,
yet I sensed that this was no ordinary person. It was hard to simply call Him a
woman or a man. When we met, I understood clearly and undoubtedly that this
was Babaji, it was Him. He and I talked, He told me what I should do and then
left the room where we met. When He left, He closed the door behind him and
The foundation of Spiritual practice
Imram’s philosophy and spiritual practices are based on personal experience and
a deep understanding of the principle of Unity of all things. Everything in the
world is interconnected and there is One who Unites the entire manifested
In this world, we can understand this through the penetrating power of
consciousness and the openness of the Spiritual Heart. In familiar terms, this
Universe is intricately connected with human beings, their psychology and the
“body temple”, according to Imram. Initially, our entire reality is a psychophysical
transformation of Light and Sound that creates the world. Thus is the world born.
Imram often points out that he is not a religious, but a deeply spiritual person. He
is not a member of any religious denomination or cult.
He speaks about the Cosmic Law of the Universe, the principle of nonduality,
and he defines his life by the greatestmanifestation of wisdom, the words of
Sathya Sai Baba: “Love is the only religion. There is only one language, and that
is the language of the heart. There is only one race, and that is humanity. There
is only one God, and he is Omnipresent.”
Many years of spiritual practice have advanced Imram’s mind, strengthened his
energy structures, and awakened the siddhi (सिद्धि in Sanskrit, in this case,
means “supernatural powers, the ability to work miracles”), and have also
allowed him to become a conductor of high and powerful energies, helping to
transmit unique personal experiences along with high moral qualities.
Imram recognises the unity of all religions, and has great respect for the various
faiths, but is not affiliated with any of them. He has chosen the scientific method
of Kriya yoga as a practical guide to his life, which takes the human
consciousness beyond traditional perception. To where the laws of physics
become metaphysical. In fact, this method very accurately interprets some areas
of quantum physics, which provides an understanding of laws beyond the
conventional, and gradually prepares the mind to accept higher realities.
“To be in the world, but not of the world” is how he defines a person’s presence
on Earth. Thanks to the personal experience accumulated over years of spiritual
study, Imram manages to successfully apply the knowledge in practice,
expressing and, most importantly, using the principles of unconditional love and
compassion in life. Imram finds inspiration in bringing universal values, the
foundation of spiritual and creative progress, to the world, over and over again.
