Introducing Swami Vishnudevananda Giri Ji Maharaj

Spiritual Transhumanist
Mahamandaleshwar of the Juna Akhara Order of Hindu Monks. Russian yoga master.

The Mankind's Desirable Future According to Vedic culture and Cybernetic Technologies. The Evolution of Consciousness in Vedanta Philosophy

What is consciousness? Is it possible to transfer it to an alternative carrier? What are the prospects for the evolution of transhumanism and are there analogs of it in the Vedic culture? How likely it is that humanity will transition to Neohumanity? Is it possible to combine cybernetic evolution with the traditional teachings of Yoga and Vedanta? What does the Yoga teaching tradition say about human evolution? These and many other issues will be subject of the presentation by Swami Vishnudevananda Giri at the GF2045 congress.

Swami will also address the evolution of consciousness, the deepening of awareness, the development of energy, as well as the outlook for life in a cybernetic body and the connection of a mind to an alternative non-protein cybernetic body. Finally, Swami will present examples of the transfer of consciousness into another body in traditional yoga.


He is the certified Russian-speaking Yoga master with 20 years of spiritual experience. He studied with more than 10 masters. He is the founder of the only advanced yoga education center in Russia: the Yoga Monastery-Academy (or Advaita-Yoga Ashrama) and author of the Collection of Secrets, which propagates a unique system of study and practice. He is also the founder of the Worldwide Society of Laya Yoga, with followers in the CIS and around the world.

He is the author of over 90 books and a multitude of articles and sketches on the philosophy, theory and practice of Yoga and Tantra.

Swami Vishnudevananda Giri also conducts research in theoretically difficult areas of philosophy and Yoga, such as prophecy, game theory, manipulation of reality, and common roots of Vedic civilization among the Aryans and ancient Slavs.

He is the founder of The Immortals, a.k.a. the Worldwide Transhumanist Movement of Immortalists, and of a new direction in Russian transhumanism and immortalism called Transcendental Transhumanism, based on the theories of Yoga and other sacred texts.
