in 1960 by SrI Rnnada Charan Sastri, later by Sri bunderlalof Varanasi,and finally by Sri SatyacharanLahiri,grandson of YogirajSri Shama
Churn Lahiree. After completing the Kriya Yoga course by austere praclice, Dr. Chatterjee received the permission from Satyacharan
Lahiri to be granted initiationtrom t gZS. He is a yogi of the highest order. The unique quality in him is that he has scrupulouslyadheredto
the ideals of Yogiraj. He has remarkablyjuxtaposed total domestic existence with yogic disciplineas showrr by Yogiraj himself.
He is a householderas well as a yogi. This blend is perfectand it lends a specialcharismato him. Due to his charismatic
magnetic presencemany are attractedto him. He has been accordedthe highest honour and was inviteda-qthe only Hindu representative
frori India to the Parliamentof World Religionsheld from 26.4.97lo 2.5.97 at Instituteof Karma Ling, Val St. Hugon, France convened by
U.N.O.and His Holinessthe DalaiLama. In retrospect, on his remarkableexpatiationat the Parliamentof WorldReligionson love,peaceand

articles,poems delineatingthe subtle philosophyof man in

Chatterjee'$ book on poems named "Praner Katha" was
publishedin January 2002. This book contains70 poems.
Each of them strikes the inner recesses of the human
heart. They are an appeal to mankind not to head for the
abysmal depths ol degeneration. The inherent beauty of
Kriya yoga can be gleaned while reading Dr. Chatterjee's
books. The essence of spiritualityis latent in one and all.
Dr. Chatterjee has endeavoured to deliver the scientific
analysis through which the dormant state of spirituality
can be awakenedand ultimatelybut graduallythe inevitable
state of peaceful repose a much coveted state will blossom.
