– PRESS RELEASES –
ANOTHER EPISODE OF A SLANDEROUS WITCH-HUNT AGAINST GENUINE SPIRITUALITY
29 November 2023 – Press Release
We are deeply concerned about the unsubstantiated attacks by the police and media against our Federation. We refute all of the current absurd allegations that are brought without any evidence.
ATMAN – The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation is a non-profit organization, providing courses on various branches of yoga and spirituality.
The Federation has several member schools worldwide, and provides teaching materials and training for the teachers.
All of its member schools are organized independently according to local legislation, holding full responsibility for their decisions and activities.
Atman Federation is not responsible, nor accountable for the private life of students and teachers of the member schools.
This is yet another episode of an ongoing witch-hunt, a fabricated campaign that should raise a red flag for anyone who cares about spiritual and religious freedom.
Thousands of people who attend courses of the member schools of the Atman Federation – some for decades – constantly attest to the various excellent results they have attained in their health, well-being and success; not about trafficking, grooming, abuse, manipulation or brainwashing.
The way spiritual movements are attacked by both media and police has many parallels with other cases of human rights abuse, sadly reminding of totalitarian regimes. The repeated abuses against spiritual movements in the past were, besides being addressed in court, studied in depth by sociologists and experts who have published books and articles revealing the fabricated cases that hid a political interest. Some of the member schools of the Atman Federation have won court trials, including in the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, proving the violation of human rights.

The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation
ATMAN – The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation is a non-profit organisation and the majority of its members are committed to a non-profit and charitable orientation. ATMAN is providing a basis for communication and cooperation between various traditional yoga schools and genuine spiritual paths worldwide, promoting true spiritual values for the benefit of mankind.
We believe in the unity between science and spirituality and we consider that yoga is a spiritual science which provide the methods to realize this Unity inside us and also in the outer world. The tradition of yoga reveals the laws of the real spiritual science, having immediate practical applications.
At the International Federation of Yoga and Meditation we aim to promote and reveal the yoga science and methodology in its traditional forms, teaching not just physical techniques, but including the essential and fundamental theoretical principles behind the yoga system. In this way we can understand more fully how and why yoga works – yoga then becomes for us a valuable tool to be used for the complete transformation on all levels of the human being. We provide knowledge, spiritual advice and the subtle support for understanding and putting in practice the spiritual teachings.
Gupta Maha Siddha Yoga Lineage
From the standpoint of the yoga tradition, the courses of integral esoteric yoga offered by the member schools of ATMAN – The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation are aligned with the Gupta Maha Siddha Yoga lineage, an esoteric tradition of a high spiritual accomplishment and of the profound, ineffable communion with God.
By dynamising and ascending the endless inner energy Kundalini Shakti, the yogi on the Gupta Maha Siddha Yoga can enter and maintain an ineffable state of communion with the clearly superior sublime energies of the macrocosmic life and manifestation. Thus, Gupta Maha Siddha Yoga can be rightfully speaking considered a genuine art of living and existing in a deified fashion.
The specific methodology of this doctrine, largely kept secret, can be applied only by those yogis who are capable of controlling the endless colossal occult energy Kundalini Shakti and ascending it at will. They can then transfer into the being of other aspirants the ineffable spiritual states that they exemplify by means of Kundalini Shakti.
Beyond belonging to this traditional lineage, we can assert that the teachings of ATMAN – The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation aim to synthesise all that is godly inspired and fundamental in the known authentic spiritual traditions, in order to offer to all those, who are suitably prepared and receptive, direct new and ancient ways of transformation and spiritual realisation that are accessible as possible for their current level.
The methodology revealed by this federation has been applied with great results by tens of thousands of people all over the world. Being scientific and practical, it is easy to approach by the people of our modern world. Being also founded in the deepest spiritual tradition of our planet, this method leads to a profound spiritual transformation of the one who perseveres enough.
We know that yoga is not and cannot be a sport and also that yoga is much more than a “keep fit” method. Yoga is an accurate science of personal development and it has the power to transform every single aspect of your life in a positive way. Because the yoga techniques are natural, appropriate for our structure, logical and very effective, they can be practiced by everybody, irrespective of age, believes, religion, convictions, social status or physical health. You will have the understanding that life is much more than a sum of coincidences. And that you are the master of your destiny.
