In The Road to Enlightenment, Yogmata Keiko Aikawa shares her own experiences and the wisdom she's gained from her forty-five-year study of yoga, meditation, and healing arts. Her hope is that readers will find answers to their questions about how to live a true and happy life in the spirit of love and peace.

Yogmata Keiko Aikawa's interest in yoga began in Japan when she was in her teens. During the 1970s, she traveled throughout India, visiting countless yoga schools; and then continued her studies in the U.S. and other Western countries for the next decade. In 1985, Aikawa met the legendary master Pilot Baba, who, in turn, introduced her to his teacher, the great sage Hari Baba. She then embarked on an austere and rigorous training program in the Himalayas. It was during this period that Yogmata Keiko Aikawa achieved samadhi, which she describes as "the highest goal of life. It means to reach the essence of the source that brings success to all, such as health, beauty, business, world peace, natural balance, and ultimately complete enlightenment."

For over forty years, Yogmata Keiko Aikawa has dedicated herself to helping humanity by working tirelessly to spread the wisdom and insights she's gained through her studies. She has set up a foundation to support her work, as well as many charitable causes, and she teaches others the way of peace and love, meditation, and samadhi.

Author Biography

Yogamata Keiko Aikawa has practiced yoga and meditation since her teens. She has supervised and instructed classes at organizations such as the Asahi Cultural Center, the NHK Cultural Center, and Yomiuri Nippon Television Network Cultural Center since the establishment of the Keiko Aikawa General Yoga Health Association in 1972. In 1984, she met the great Himalayan sage Hari Baba and studied with him, reaching the ultimate stage of consciousness, "the true samadhi," during this period of harsh ascetic training. She has conducted public samadhi, praying for world peace since 1991. In 2007, the Indian government and the Saint Association bestowed upon her the titles of "Samadhi Master," "Yogamata " (mother of Yoga), "Mother of Modern Meditation," and Schlima-Mahamandaleshwar" (the great cosmos master), of which she is one of only two in the world.

Aikawa travels widely to take part in and lead seminars and workshops in Asia, Euope, and the United States. She resides in Japan, where she oversees her foundation and instructs the next generation in the way of peace and love, meditation, and samadhi. Her website, www.yogmata.org, provides details about her life, work, travels, and philosophy.
