Please note that the focus of the book is primarily on the teachings conveyed by the SiddhaPurians. Very little of their background is known from their Voice of Ananda transmissions. It would seem that they wanted their message to be their story. That being said, the main SiddhaPurians you will meet, in the order of their appearance, are:
Dr. Sofia Tristan, a French neurologist, previously a fashion model, who becomes a Tantric and Integral Yoga adept after reaching SiddhaPuri, and is given the name Sharada by her guru;
The Rishi of Ananda, who proclaims the arrival of the Age of Ananda, reveals the secrets of the Vedas, and introduces us to the brave new world of conscious evolution;
Gargi Vasudeva, a star student of the Rishi, who champions the Voice of Ananda Channel into existence to bring to the world ancient and modern teachings on the future of the human race;
Yajnavalkya, a renaissance man of both science and spirituality, a master of rarely practiced meditation and yogic techniques, and co-discoverer of the elusive particle of consciousness.
The Maharaja of SiddhaPuri, a 111-year-old pioneer of conscious physical evolution who, having transmuted his body at the cellular level in his youth, always looks like a handsome thirty-something!
