TORKOM SARAYDARIAN

Torkom Saraydarian was born in Asia Minor. From early boyhood, he lived in monasteries and secret brotherhoods in remote areas throughout the world. He was trained in the Teachings of the Ageless Wisdom under the guidance of his father. His first-hand life experiences gave him deep insight and understanding of major religions and philosophies. From his experiences emerged a deep love and commitment to serve humanity.

In addition to being a prolific writer, he was an international lecturer, and an accomplished violinist, pianist, and composer. His recordings have been released on CD and cassette. His over 100 publications have been translated into twelve languages. His assimilation of the wisdom of Great Teachings gave him a unique ability to teach a synthesized understanding of cultures, religions and science, with emphasis placed on practical application of these truths. People throughout the world have increased their health, joy and success as a result of his labor.

In 1997, Torkom appointed Joann Saraydarian, his wife, to succeed him as the Teacher and President of the Institute.
