Who is Raja Choudhury?
Raja Choudhury is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, TED speaker and spiritual teacher who aims to disrupt human consciousness and awaken each of us to our true evolutionary potential using his deep knowledge of Kundalini Shakti, Tantra, and Indian Wisdom. In the past year, he has emerged as one of The Shift Network’s most popular new teachers, initiating and guiding over 1,900 students into the mysteries of Kundalini Shakti, Shiva-Shakti Tantra, and the Third Eye. Raja’s own shift occurred in 2006 when, while a creative director in New York, he underwent a life-changing Kundalini awakening that rewired his system and opened up a new universe for him.
Raja initially started life as an architect from London’s Architectural Association and then went on to become a Webby-winning digital creative director in New York, where this awakening occurred. Since then, Raja has created numerous documentary films on wisdom and consciousness, including Spirituality in the Modern World with Ken Wilber and Traleg Rinpoche; Yoga Harmony with Nature (the official international film for the first International Day of Yoga), The Quantum Indians (winner of the 2014 National Film Award of India), The Modern Mystic, and Guruji Amritananda. He’s currently making a film for PBS on Swami Vivekananda called First Guru.
Raja gave a TED talk at Bangalore on Indian Wisdom for Today’s World in 2012 and a TEDx talk in 2015 on Yoga. His videos on Kundalini, Shiva, the third eye, and meditation are very popular on YouTube. In his own spiritual quest, he was initiated first into Kriya Yoga in 1998, and went on to take deep initiations into Raja Yoga, advanced Kriya Yoga, and then finally, and most importantly, Sri Vidya and Maha Vidya Tantra. Raja is also a student of Qigong, sacred geometry, neuroscience, history, esoteric traditions, and the mind. His teachings are a syncretic blend of Eastern and Western philosophies and techniques. Raja lives in New Delhi with his wife, daughter, and a cocker spaniel called Max.

I am so grateful for this adventure we have been on and his immense love and Shakti energy.”
—Eliana Koulas, Luxury Brand Director
“After having attended several of Raja Choudhury’s workshops and seminars, each new invitation from him feels like receiving a letter from Hogwarts. Raja helps me leave behind my boring Muggle life to explore the universe and realize the infinite magic that lies within all our minds!”
—Anuj Gupta, Faculty, St. Stephen’s College
“I’ve been on a journey of self-discovery for many years now. I’ve reached a point where I now let my intuitive heart instead of my head guide me to “the next step,” and when I saw Raja’s workshop and meditation advertised, I INSTANTLY knew I had to be there — and I wasn’t disappointed! I found the information AWESOME! The meditation was easy, straight to the point, and profound; three things that I DON’T associate with most teachers these days. I definitely felt the energy and went through significant personal shifts and expansion in the following week! This meditation is NOT for you if you’re NOT ready to truly “let go”.”
—Nick Terrone , Hypnotherapist
