About Dr. Indranill Basu Ray
Dr. Indranill Basu Ray is trained in medicine and cardiology from India and the US. At Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, he received his training in cardiac electrophysiology. He has been in charge of the Experimental EP Lab at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and is a faculty member in Medicine (Cardiology) at Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Basu Ray was born in a middle class Bengali family in Kolkata, India. From a young age he was keenly interested in knowing the secrets of this universe and the entity called ‘God’. This led him to read most of Indian religious and spiritual literature particularly writings of Swami Vivekananda and Maharishi Aurobindo. He has been practicing meditation from the age of six years.
He became a disciple of the powerful and esoteric Yogic system Kriya yoga started by Mahaavatar Babaji, and was initiated by Swami Hariharananda Giri, the direct disciple of Sri Yukteshwar Giri and a Brother disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda. Subsequently he acquired higher kriyas from other guru’s.
He has an enduring interest in Mind-Body Medicine, including research involving brain imaging, hormonal changes, immunological parameters in various states of consciousness and heart disease. Coronary artery disease is the most common killer in the Western Hemisphere. Factors studied include the role of emotions and environmental changes, including adverse environment, in precipitating and sustaining heart diseases. These include the role of meditation, stress reduction and biofeedback on the mind-heart axis to prevent and treat cardiovascular pathology initiated in a stressed organism.
