“Durgadas (Rodney Lingham) is one of the most important traditional scholars and teachers of both Veda and Tantra working in the world today, with his field of insight extending to Ayurveda and Jyotish.

Though still quite young (around thirty), he has a deep understanding of the esoteric doctrines, mantras and yoga practices that is extremely rare today even in senior teachers in India today.

Along with this he has the ability to express the teachings in extensive writings that cover all the main aspects of Vedic and Yogic concern.

As an Ayurvedic Vaidya, he has new insights as to the disease process based upon his extensive study and research with herbs and mantras.

As a Jyotishi, he takes the key principles of planets, signs and Nakshatras and applies them with skill and adaptability relative to birth charts today.

As a Vedic teacher, he knows the secret Yoga and mantra Sadhana hidden behind the most ancient Rigvedic mantras and deities.

As a Tantric teacher, he understands the energies and personalities of the Goddess and is able to put receptive students in touch with them and the sadhanas for working with them. We look forward to his many contributions in the years to come.”
