Sraddhalu Ranade

Sraddhalu Ranade, the self-proclaimed Scientist, Scholar, Educationist, God-man, Guru, and so on… tops the list of the Integral Yoga Impostors. To chronicle his acts of deception and duplicity is a monumental and daunting task which we have chosen to undertake for the sake of the integrity of Integral Yoga.

Thanks to the publication of Peter Heehs’ book The Lives of Sri Aurobindo, Sraddhalu Ranade’s cover was blown and his true identity of an Impostor got unmistakably established. Below is an on-going compilation of his un-Integral acts.


The Sraddhalu Ranade – Govind Nishar nexus of fraud:

Sraddhalu Ranade’s fraudulent activities have been exposed again. Click here, and here for full details.

Little did the followers of Sraddhalu Ranade know that he could stoop so low, so as to hide behind aliases and fake email ids, to promote his agenda and propaganda of hate towards the Trustees of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Ambition has been known to poison and blind even the wisest of men. Imagine then what it can do to an impostor!



Sraddhalu Ranade’s anti-West sentiments:

For someone who until not too long ago frequently lectured on the subject of Human Unity in Auroville – the City of the the future that is meant to fulfill Sri Aurobindo’s vision of World Unity – Sraddhalu Ranade’s outburst against “Westerners” on his website “” comes as a revelation to many but which isn’t really surprising to those who know him well enough.



Sraddhalu Ranade orchestrating trouble at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram:

A completely edited and tampered video posted on Sraddhalu Ranade’s website “” tries to portray his protest as a silent and non-violent one. However, video recordings are emerging that reveal the true intent and nature of Sraddhalu Ranade’s protests against the Sri Aurobindo Ashram that are clearly meant to harass the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trustees as well disrupt the peaceful atmosphere of the Ashram.

Sraddhalu Ranade still avoiding not so tough questions:

In August 2010, an Anonymous Devotee penned the following letter to Sraddhalu Ranade. Till date we haven’t seen any response from Sraddhalu Ranade on this subject. We invite Sraddhalu Ranade to post his response on this blog.

    Peter Heehs is the ultimate imposter and this site seems to reverse the role and label Sri Aurobindo’s devotees as imposters..what’s down is up and what’s up is down!

      Dear Donna Osborn,

      Thank you for expressing your views on our website and for suggesting that Peter Heehs should feature as the ultimate impostor on our website instead of all the others with whom you sympathize.

      We have taken your views into consideration but we regret to inform you that Peter Heehs fails to meet our criteria of an Integral Yoga Impostor.

      We request you to verify his bio-data here ( or here ( as well as his track record and you will find that nowhere does he claim to be one who practices or has mastered the Integral Yoga approach although he appears to be keenly interested in the subject. He claims to be a historian which is a fact. Whether some people like his work or not does not change that fact. There is therefore no scope for us to include Peter Heehs among the other Integral Yoga Impostors present on this website.

      On the other hand the Integral Yoga Impostors listed and described on our website are people who claim that they not only practice the Integral Yoga approach, but some of them also go to the extent of claiming to be masters who are experienced enough to talk to others about IY and even lead people in IY. They have also tried to establish themselves as the self-appointed standard bearers of the IY approach.

      What makes all of these self-proclaimed Integral Yoga practitioners qualified IY impostors is the fact that they have all contradicted the IY approach while claiming, mostly publicly, to be ardent and devoted followers of such an approach. Their duplicitous actions have been objectively and systematically presented here. While preaching an integral approach, they have instead encouraged narrow, limited, intolerant, dogmatic and regressive tendencies. They have thus betrayed their Master and brought shame to the IY approach and the larger IY community that follows that path.

      Finally, if you feel that you belong to the group of Integral Yoga Impostors that you defend and are comfortable in their company, we could consider including you in our website. We will look into your case to see if you qualify as an Integral Yoga Impostor. Please keep visiting this website for updates.

    If you are so wise, why are we not hearing of your divinely inspired work, instead you are polluting the world with bitterness and anger? Did Ramakrishna establish his greatness by finding things around him to despise? You have lost yourself.

    By what standards does anyone denounce anyone to be a Integral Yoga Imposter is debatable & inconclusively proved. The earth has to be prepared for the manifestation of the higher power & intelligence is a task of collective humanity to gain, grow & collaborate in the Divine’s mission &
    accept this truth-consciousness for which Sri Aurobindo & Mother manifested on earth.
