Divine Souls II: Rishi Nitya Pragya

When it comes to Rishi Nitya Pragya ji, only one word comes to mind "ENERGY!". He is a dynamite! Specially when he is on the stage and has a mic in his hand. One of the two Rishis whose grace has flowed through us from the Master ( the other being the awesome Rishi Vidyadharj ji) he has shown by his own life  how an ordinary human being can attain the heights of spiritual wisdom and balanced living through dedication, devotion and surrender. 

Rishi is a Sanskrit word which means "A divinely inspired poet or saint". Nitya means "Ever" and Pragya means "Alert". It fits perfectly. Ever conscious of the need of others and supremely aware of the happenings in the surroundings Rishiji sets an example for everyone to follow. If there is anyone who can be given the title of "ever-alert" then it is Rishi Nitya Pragya ji.

Rishi Nityapragya 

Young Rishiji 1993
Biography: Born as Nitin Limaye in Gujarat, India, he has done his Bachelors in Chemical Engineering and was used to a lifestyle with fast bikes and doing gigs in musical bands until he discoverd something deeply spiritual when he met Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at the age of 21.  
He says " I was a chemical engineer and I searched for the meaning of life. I felt this structure, this conditioning given to us by society cannot be the purpose of life.This search took me to a lot of places and somebody told me about the Art of Living course. During the Advanced Course I met Sri Sri and I knew I was home!"

Rishi Nityapragya shortly became an Art of Living Teacher and began organising and teaching the Part I Program of the Art of Living. Gifted with a melodious voice, his speciality seemed to be in mesmerising the crowd with his wonderful and energetic rendition of the Bhajans during Satsangs. He has taken the simple talent and mixed it with grace to produce an effect which can only be experienced when he is singing on stage.

Guruji bestowed upon him the title of 'Rishi' to declare the high level of spiritual capacity he has developed. Today he travels around the world teaching the Advanced Meditatioin Course and Divya Samaj Ka Nirman. He is most famous for his energetic satsangs which is packed with deep wisdom and sharing of his experiences and learnings from life.

 In this video Rishiji speaks about Vrittis or tendencies of the Mind.. Really amazing knowledge...

Thanks Vivek for your wonderful blog.You are absolutely right about meaning of Rishiji's title.I did an advance course with Rishiji last year and I was amazed when I experienced his spiritual capacity.He actually seemed to know my thoughts,even without exchange of a single word.He changed definition of advance course for me.I had never felt so much belonging in an advance course before.

I recently attended a satsang with Chayanna.This was the first time I attended His satsang n I must say He changed definition of satsang for me.It was actually a 'puja' with deep meditation experience.In the morning session he spoke on 4 vanis n actually made us experience difference between them through meditation.

One just wonders,how all these senior teachers have variety of teaching styles..They make 'gyan'so easy to understand n practice.

In word of RISHI JI, i was "MURKH" to feel myself as knowledgeable person (after reading few books of life), but now after doing my first advanced course with Rishi ji, i've realized what is knowledge, grace & devotion and of course energy.

HE IS REALLY DYNAMITE.

I have had no contact with Rishi Nitya except for his videos on YouTube. It is like no other voice that I have ever heard. I am sure that he is here to give spiritual up-liftment through his blissful music.
I would certainly want to be this great soul
