A Great American Yogi
September 1, 1893 – September 16, 1989
This site has been established by one of Yogacharya’s Disciples for the sole purpose of singing the praises and glories of his Guru Yogacharya J. Oliver Black. Yogacharya was one of Paramahansa Yogananda’s main disciples and carried on his great work in Michigan. Our purpose is to make the world aware of this Great American Yogi, his vast realization, and his life’s work.
One of the ways we will accomplish this is by making audio CD’s available. These CD’s are in Yogacharya’s own voice and were recorded primarily between 1965 and 1970. There are a few recorded from the 1950’s as well. The recordings consist of Sunday SRF meditations and services, conducted at The Detroit Institute of Arts, and fellowship conversations, Satsangas, directly following the services. There are also a few interviews that Eileen Jasnowski conducted personally one on one with Yogachayra in preperation for a series of articles in the Detroit Free Press. The articles were never published, but the interviews are interesting.
We also are able to offer several Video DVD Satsangas recorded in the 1980’s at Song of the Morning Ranch. These were question and answer sessions where Yogacharya answered questions, spoke of his experiences with Paramahansa Yogananda and his personal spiritual experiences. The DVD’s provide a wonderful legacy of Yogacharya’s Unique wisdom and contagious Joy.
If you are interested in purchasing any of these Audio CD’s or Video DVD’s please visit our Web Store at.
OM, Peace, Bliss, Amen
