Anand Nigam Overington
Nigam was born in England in 1948, and was a schoolboy of the 6o’s growing up near to Liverpool, a time and place of great social change.
Leaving England in his early twenties, “with his guitar on his back and an old rucksack”, he started off on an individual search for understanding and more meaning in his life. This quest took him overland through Europe, Iran, Afganistan to India and Nepal, before arriving in Australia where he lived for more than 30 years.
He met Swami Satyananda Saraswati 35 years in Australia, who initiated him into Kriya Yoga. This inspired a journey of meditation, yoga, chanting, surfing and kirtan singing that lead to Osho sannyas in India in1991, and two years later, to his meditation master Baba Purnananda.
His close connection with Baba over the years has been a major influence on his life, and his teaching.
