Allahabad: The aura and
mysticism of yoga and
sanatan dharma have
always attracted people,
irrespective of their
nationalities and religions.

But in first of its kind, a
legendary practitioner of
Australian school of
hockey is now a yoga
guru and more
importantly, the first
foreign
Mahamandaleshwar
(religious head) of
Mahanirvani Akhada.

Jasraj Puri, a protege of
Vishwaguru Paramhans
Swami Maheshwaranand,
was always attracted to
the mysticism of sanatan
dharma and thus quit his
physiotherapy job in
Sydney in favour of
services in an Indian
ashram in 1995.

Puri confessed that his
decision to quit a well-
paid job shocked many of
his close friends at that
time.

Puri was a maverick right-
in and left-in player, who
mesmerised the
Australian crowds with his
deft stickwork.

He had
been trained under Greg
Corbett, a member of the
silver-winning team at the
Barcelona Olympics of
1992. Later, he practiced
physiotherapy in Sydney.

When he came to India in
1995, he joined the
ashram of Swami
Maheshwaranand in Pali
district of Rajasthan, and
devoted the next six years
of his life to the practise
of yoga. He was rewarded
for his efforts in 2001,
when he was officially
proclaimed as a sanyasi
by his guru.

The pinnacle of his ascetic
life came in 2010, when
he was made the first
foreign
mahamandaleshwar of
the Mahanirvani akhada
in the kumbh mela.

Sitting on the banks of
Ganges and recounting
his story, Puri made an
impromptu realisation
that he had come a long
way. From a
physiotherapist in
Australia to being a yoga
preacher in India is,
indeed, a long distance.
