Guru Umeshji is an experienced healer and teacher with a lot of love to share. He has a strong intuition and he can see where your healing lies. He holds a powerful, stable space for self healing and therapy, and he provides respectful guidance when needed. He is a strong character with a deep respect for self.
I felt much more stable and strong after my time with him. Even having practiced meditation and yoga for some time with different teachers, Umeshji shared a new perspective that resonates very deeply with the environment of Varanasi and the powerful energy of the surrounding temples and ghats. It is a wonderful, challenging and transformative experience to be and work in Umeshji’s presence.
Thank you so much for your support and teaching Guruji, God bless you and I hope to work with you again in the future.

Om Namah Shivaya

I have had a beautiful and most inspiring spiritual journey with Guruji Umesh. It’s for the true seekers of spirituality. I’ve had the chance to meet Guruji(spiritual master) and I’m very much blessed. I have followed the 7 days course where I’ve learned how to balance my chakras and also learn meditation and healing. Guruji is a genuine person, always ready to land a helping hand to anybody. One can’t expect to learn everything in one day. It takes time and patience to reach one’s goal. I’m very happy that I have knocked at the right door, because there are other gurus out there who are swindlers, ripping off and misguiding people. I recommend Guruji Umesh with all my heart to all those are seeking the ultimate truth of life. Guruji, you have all my support, love and blessings even though I’m your student. Than you very much for everything that you have taught me.

I stayed in Varanasi for 9 days, having daily training with Umesh. A friend recommended to go. He is an incredible, professionell and precise teacher with very special energy! I experienced states of being through meditation at the cosmic healing center way more clearly and controlled after trying other, personally for me, unsuccessful forms of meditation. So don‘t expect the usual westernised, useless chi-chi with Umesh, rather accept what he is offering. When I got severely sick, Umesh was there for me to help. He always tries to point one in the right direction. I never forget my practice and stay in Varanasi and at the center. Can highly recommend!

What was meant to be a few weeks stay learning from this man, I cut abruptly short to 1 week. As, by that point, I had a number of red flags fire up in regard to him and his teachings.  
(I should point out that he had no other pupils at this time and I was on my own with him in the ashram)
Here I will outline a few of them:

 - During in the first week, he stated a number of times that I needed ‘man love’ and I should be accepting of his.  This, he said, could be quicker if I accepted an oil massage from him.  The two times he pushed for it, and I said no, he asked me to leave.  After the second time, I flew out of there.

- After questioning about needing ‘his man love’ and expressing my discomfort at receiving an oil massage, he later that evening told me that I ‘sucked all the energy out of him’ and as a result I ‘made him sick’ and so I am ‘a selfish girl’ - this is just one of the times he used blaming, shaming, guilt-tripping and other forms of emotional manipulation to try and get me to do what he wanted.

- He spoke about how ‘you should never speak ill of another person, it is bad karma.’  However, when we went to meet a woman who tried to tell him about an ex-student who was bad-mouthing him and his teachings (I can see why), he was quite cold and rude to her, but also spoke ill of her all the way back to the ashram.  Hypocritical?

- He told me that a couple, who are ex-students, have found fortune in Italy, but they have not donated a vast amount of money to him to build his own ashram.  As a result he said ‘karma will find them in about 6/8 years.  It is the cycle, I know these things.’  Really? Karma is based on whether people donate money to YOU? I think both religion and science might have some of their own questions there about life revolving around you.

- He said many times that he doesn’t like religion and that they are wrong and ‘a stupid’.  However, he tells you what you should wear (what colours etc.), tells you how to live your life, takes astrological charts as facts and, when you question karma, answers ‘but this is truth, don’t deny truth it is a stupid.’ DO NOT be fooled: that is a religion.  If it is a religion that you believe in then great, good for you.  However, this is NOT spirituality, and it is deceiving and ignorant to describe it as such.  He is a religious man who desires followers, he is not a spiritual leader.

There are many other aspects of my experience which contributed to my concern, however I have described the main ones.  Two people I know recommended this man and had positive experiences.  However, mine was the opposite and, to be honest, fairly traumatic.  I am a young, female adult who was on her own in India and the only student with him - hopefully you can see why his behaviour made me, at the very least, uncomfortable.
I have no doubt in my mind that he is not who he portrays he is.
Please exercise extreme caution.

Even though I was a bit sceptical at the beginning, already the first practice and meeting Umesh in person convinced me completely.

Next three weeks with Umesh were amazing - getting to know myself, feeling the energy, spiritually evolving and solving problems I have buried into myself years ago.

At the end I can say that it was one of the most transformational practices of my life. Feeling pure happiness, love and endless possibilities. Umesh is warm, positive, giving and trustable, the best spiritual teacher one can have.

I would recommend this experience to everyone that know they haven't yet reach their full potential in life.

Umesh, thank you for everything!!!

Guruji is an authentic and genuine spiritual teacher and ayervedic practitioner. He taught me alot about my own energy and other energies, and is full of intuition and wisdom on a range of topics. Much of what I learn from him was through spending time at the ashram and seeing the way he lives; simply, kindly and with an open heart. His energy is very powerful and supportive and simply being around him felt very healing (for me). He is so helpful with travellers in Varanasi and has lived there his whole life and knows the area very well. He is always very open to answering all questions and is very wise. I was sick for some of my time and he took care of me so nicely with conpassion. He is also so funny and a great dancer :D Definitely get in touch with guruji to learn about yourself and how to be in the world, he is a good man :)
