• Ghosh’s Yoga College

    line
    Ghosh’s College of Yoga and Physical Culture was established by Bishnu Charan Ghosh in 1930. Bishnu Ghosh was the younger brother of Paramahansa Yogananda (Mukunda Lal Ghosh), author of Autobiography of a Yogi, and the son of Bhagavati Ghosh, disciple of the great Yogi Lahiri Mahasaya. When Bishnu Ghosh entered Mahasamadhi (left his body) in 1970, his school was left to his surviving son Biswanath (Bisu) Ghosh. With Bisu’s passing in April, 2008, the school has now passed on to his daughter Muktamala Mitra.

  • Bishnu Charan Ghosh

    line
    Bishnu Ghosh was widely considered one of the greatest Physical Culturalists of the 20th Century, a man way ahead of his time in the field of physical fitness. He was at the vanguard of the use of weightlifting and body building as means of physical training, and combined with Yoga techniques advancing the possibilities of the human body and mind, and improving and maintaining physical and mental health. At his Ghosh’s College many great Yogis, champions, and body builders were trained and developed, including the first Mr. Universe, Monotosh Roy. Bishnu Ghosh was a lawyer, a doctor, an engineer, a philoshopher, as well as a great Hatha Yoga Master. He served on the faculty of Columbia University, and joined his brother Paramahansa Yogananda in the U.S. in 1925, helping him set up the now world-wide Self Realization Fellowship. Bishnu Ghosh would take his troupe of highly trained Yogis to do shows around the world demonstrating the power derived from Yoga practice by performing incredible and seemingly impossible feats. He served on the Indian Olympic Committee, and helped to introduce Yoga to Japan. His famous speech, given on Fuji TV, Tokyo, in 1968 has been played at the Graduation ceremonies for every Bikram’s Yoga Teacher Training since they began in 1994.
