Naga studied Ayurveda at The Ayurvedic Academy held at Bastyr University in Washington and has extensive studies in Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) with the aid of his close friend and mentor in various occult sciences, Dr. Robert Svoboda. It was Naga's devotion and earnestness on his spiritual quest over the past two decades that propelled and guided him to find a strong karmic resonance in Ancient Tantra, eventually being initiated by Shri Kapilnath into the International Nath Order, a modern Nath Tantric sect established by Shri Gurudev Mahendranath with its roots in the Adi-Nath Sampradaya and Uttara Kaula Sampradayas of which Shri Mahendranath was holder of parampara and Guru. The Guru tradition and initiation of the International Nath Order includes wisdom teachings from Hindu, Soto Zen and Taoist sources plus practices rediscovered by the science and yoga of meditation, contemplation, mantra and ritual. Naga has been applying this Science of Awakening using only his "Eco-Lab" as the primary tool of discernment for over a ten years of living 100% off-the-grid in the jungles of Costa Rica.
