Kamlesh D Patel

Kamlesh Patel (born in 1956) is known to many as Daaji. His practical teachings arise from his personal experience on the path of Heartfulness, while also reflecting his deep spirit of enquiry and respect for the world’s great spiritual traditions and scientific advancements. Having started a spiritual practice very young in life, Daaji is also a family man, and built up a pharmacy business in New York City for over three decades before being named the fourth in a century-old lineage of spiritual masters in 2014.


This tradition is the Sahaj Marg system of Raja Yoga, offered by the Shri Ram Chandra Mission, a non-profit organization. As a universal heart-based meditation system, Sahaj Marg is also known as the Heartfulness Way, and these days Daaji extends his support to millions of spiritual seekers in over 130 countries. A self-professed student of spirituality, he devotes significant time and energy to research in the field of consciousness and spirituality, approaching the subject with scientific methodology – a practical approach that stems from his own experience and mastery in the field.
