Yoga is a profound part of the Vedic culture. Yoga practices underlie at the heart of all Hinduism (Sanskrit "Sanatan Dharma") schools. Sanatana Dharma means "the eternal law" - the law of all beings’ evolution.
Advaita is an ancient doctrine that tells us about human nature as divine initially. "Advaita" can be translated as "not two". Soul is not separated from God. God is a reality that permeates everything.

The official website of the group has «Katha Upanishad» published, Boris’ own translation of the book by Shibendu Lahiri «Kriya Yoga» and a guide to the holy places of India.
«The Vedas and Upanishads are the sacred books of India. They are among the oldest scriptures of the world. Katha Upanishad is considered to be one of the oldest and most authoritative», says the site.
Boris has had a lot of conversations with various spiritual masters, including Sri Chinmoy, from whom he received a spiritual name Purushottam, meaning «Supreme Soul».
Over the scene a four-meter image of Saraswati – the goddess of wisdom and art – was hung. It became a surprise for many fans familiar with Hinduism.
