Andhaka108

Andhaka has helped people as a spiritual advisor in Croatia for 30 years - yes, even when this Balkans country was in communist Yugoslavia.

For his personal growth Andhaka has been practising yoga and meditation daily since 1982. His main interest in life is being a friend to whomever the universe sends his way; and building long-lasting, honest, meaningful, loving relationships.  He took Diksha spiritual initiation in 1986 and Brahmana initiation in 2014.

Andhaka's dear wife Jayshree departed from this world in 2017. He enthusiastically serves the world in her loving memory.
