President's Message
A Doctor's Perspective...

Taramata, Dr Zena BedesseeI would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Dr Zena Bedessee and I received my medical degree from the University of Toronto in 1992 and began practising family medicine in 1994. I was raised in Kitchener, Ontario, and was a child when I first heard of Kriyayoga meditation. My father, Dr. Manwel Bedessee founded the Kriyayoga centre, Kriyayoga Meditation Centre - Yog Fellowship Temple in 1983. It is a centre within the community where you can experience complete health, peace, and prosperity through the scientific practice of Kriyayoga Meditation.

Kriyayoga Meditation is an ancient, yet ever-new spiritual science which allows sincere practitioners to completely cure physical and mental illnesses. In short periods of time, many have healed themselves of such physical ailments as malignant breast cancer, colon cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, bronchial asthma, and more. The practice of Kriyayoga meditation is based on the principle of ahimsa (non-violence) and was the same technique practiced by world renowned proponent of truth and non-violence, Mahatma Gandhi. The technique is a complete education that generates the keen intelligence to quickly solve all problems of life, including those related to health, the environment, family, society, the economy, and global welfare.

Since meeting Kriyayoga Master and Scientist, Swami Shree Yogi Satyam, I have witnessed and examined many people who have significantly improved their health with this simple, yet effective technique. It gives me hope to know that this practice of Kriyayoga meditation can empower patients to regain control of their lives. As a physician, I had felt limited by the medical treatments available with which I could only partially help my patients cope with their illnesses, pain and stress. They were not complete cures to the problems of life. By the practice of Kriyayoga meditation, those who suffer from health problems are able to free themselves from lifelong dependence on medications. Because of the complete nature of this spiritual science, it has attracted many physicians and alternative health practitioners.

Taramata Dr Zena Bendessee during Vancouver Retreat 2010In 2002, I gave up my full-time medical practice to promote health in the community employing the principles of Kriyayoga. In 2005, I became the president of Kriyayoga Meditation Centre - Yog Fellowship Temple, a non-profit organization dedicated to the teachings of Kriyayoga Meditation which promotes complete health (physical, mental and spiritual).

The humanitarian work of our centre is based on the concept of “Vasudeva Kutumbakum” which means“the world is one family”. All of our work is performed on a volunteer basis. All of our Kriyayoga classes are offered to the community free of charge.

People come from all over the world to our centre to participate in Kriyayoga programs. They are from all backgrounds, all religions, and some with no religious affiliation at all. Kriyayoga imparts the true concept of God and religion which promotes permanent unity among all people of the world resulting in truth, peace and non-violence. They learn to live in a community, work together, and cultivate the same united atmosphere in their own home. This results in a preference for joint family living rather than the nuclear family. Generation gaps will diminish as each generation learns from and respects each other's presence. This will be beneficial for the children who will evolve the spiritual pace of North America:
·       marriages will remain united because each partner shares the common goal of promoting the spiritual growth of their spouse,
·       aging family members are cared for by family with honour and dignity, decreasing the need in society for old age homes, and a
·       united family learns to greet the whole world as one home, and all its creation (the earth, plants, animals, and human beings) as their own.

Come and learn about the great work of our centre located right here in your community. It is the only centre in North America that offers Kriyayoga Healing Programs that are uniquely taught by Swami Shree Yogi Satyam.

Kindest regards,

Dr. Zena Bedessee

About Kriyayoga Meditation Centre - Yog Fellowship Temple

Kriyayoga Meditation Centre - Yog Fellowship Temple (YFT), a non-sectarian non-profit center, was built in 1983 by the late Dr Manwel Bedessee, to spread and promote the teachings of the scientific technique of Kriyayoga Meditaton. Through these teachings, the center is fully confident to promote health, peace and non-violence to the communities of Canada and to the human race all over the world.

Since the arrival of Master Shree Yogi Satyam at the center in 1995, the center has grown significantly and many life-changing results have been experienced. Cures of all kinds – physical, mental, emotional, family and individual, have been observed without the use of any medications, nutritive herbs of any kind or any other external aid.

The center is beautifully situated on a scenic, country property in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. It radiates a spiritual ambience immediately experienced by all who enter the premises. Its meditation hall is well-known for its unique architecture, consisting of a geodesic dome beneath a pyramidal enclosure, which provides an ideal environment conducive for Kriyayoga programs and retreats.

Kriyayoga Meditation Centre - Yog Fellowship Temple currently serves as the North American centre for Kriyayoga which hosts classes throughout the week and has become popular for its retreats. Weekend retreats are offered monthly at Kriyayoga Meditation Centre - Yog Fellowship and semi-annual Healing Programs conducted by Guruji Swami Shree Yogi Satyam are a popular event at the centre attracting people from all over the globe.

Annual Healing Program

The Healing Program is a condensed, intensive programs of Kriyayoga that enables one to be immersed in Kriyayoga in every way. Participants gain a deeper understanding of Kriyayoga in a group setting in a short period of time. Conducted under the guidance of Kriyayoga Master, Swami Shree Yogi Satyam, one realizes that all healing processes start from within. Classes are held four to five times daily and the sessions gives one the opportunity to be amongst other sincere Kriyayoga practitioners,  enhancing the effect of the Kriyayoga practice due to group vibration effect. As many important notes are shared during the sessions and taking notes would be most useful, participants are advised to bring along a notebook and pen. 

During the program, the practitioners participate in the purchasing, cooking and serving of nutrition vegan meals, prepared based on Kriyayoga Dietary principles. To cover the cost of the groceries required, money is collected together by the students. There is opportunity to do all types  of volunteer work, employing Kriyayoga principles, during the sessions.

Arrangements are modest. Practitioners bring along their own pillow, blanket and sleeping bag, and their own necessary toiletries. 

Layered clothing is recommended to cater to the different types of weather. 

There are no fees for the classes but donations are welcome to help spread Kriyayoga worldwide and to help cover the expenses for Kriyayoga Meditation Centre - Yog Fellowship to host the program.
