The statistics are staggering – almost 700,000 lives are claimed each year, leaving families shattered and communities devastated. But the worst part? Many of these deaths are preventable.

Meet our Experts

Dr. Indranill Basu Ray

Dr. Indranill Basu Ray is a physician and a yogi in the Kriya Yoga tradition. He is the founder-Chairman of The American Academy for Yoga and Meditation(AAYM). He is one of the most renowned Cardiologists and a Cardiac Electrophysiologist in the world. Dr. Basu Ray is also a Visiting Professor of Cardiology and Head of Integrative Cardiology at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences at Rishikesh, UK, India, and a Professor at the School of Public Health at the University of Memphis. In addition, he has been a former faculty at multiple distinguished schools, including the Harvard Medical School and Tulane University. 

Dr. Basu Ray was chosen by the American Heart Association (AHA) as an eminent cardiologist worldwide to write the practice guidelines on the role of ‘meditation in cardiovascular diseases.’ AHA is the world’s largest organization of cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, and vascular specialists. Dr. Basu-Ray has contributed to a large number of medical and cardiology Journals. In addition, Dr. Basu Ray is the Editor of the world’s first reference book written by multiple authors worldwide called “The Principle and Practice of Yoga in Cardiovascular Diseases.” It has been published by Springer Nature. Dr. Basu Ray also has two other books in publication, including a medical textbook, “Yoga for Cardiovascular Disease and Cardiac Rehabilitation,” published by Elsevier and Yoga and Heart Health for Cardiotext Publications, MN, USA.


Dr. Basu Ray has trained in Medicine & Cardiology in India and completed his American training at Harvard, Tulane University, and Baylor. Dr. Basu Ray has been simultaneously contributing to research in the frontiers of medicine and yoga. His pioneering research suggested a newer cause of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation. He also developed several tools to treat atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, two complex arrhythmias affecting millions of people worldwide. Dr. Basu Ray’s original article on the role of yoga in coronary artery disease almost two decades back launched the drive to research yoga as a tool to prevent and treat cardiac diseases. Since then, he has been relentlessly trying to introduce yoga in the modern medical curriculum in the US. This has led to many medical schools imbibing yoga as a scientific preventive and therapeutic mode for noncommunicable diseases.


Dr. Basu-Ray has been meditating since the age of six. He was initiated to kriya yoga of Maha Avatar Babaji by Swami Hariharananda Giri, the brother disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda of the “Autobiography of a Yogi” fame and a disciple of the venerated Paramguru Yukteshwar Giri. He has been practicing, teaching, and researching meditation for over three decades now. His research centers on the use of meditation and yoga in cardiovascular diseases. He has founded and led AAYM since 2019. This organization has been organizing the world’s largest conferences in Yoga and Meditation. The “World’s first conference on the role of Meditation in Cardiovascular Diseases’  was organized at AIIMS, Rishikesh, in March 2019. Dr. Basu Ray was the organizer and the program director. It was attended by over a thousand physician delegates from all over the world. It had invited faculty from the worlds’ top universities, including Harvard, Emory, AIIMS-New Delhi, and PGI-Chandigarh, to name a few.


The second conference was recently held by AAYM virtually throughout June under the stewardship of Dr. Basu Ray. This had over a hundred speakers and over 50 sessions. The inaugural session included Dr. David Frawley, Dr. H R Nagendra, Dr. Deepak Chopra & Ms. Nivedita Bhide, to name a few. The faculty included the world’s top scientists, physicians, and researchers to talk about the latest research in yoga. Dr. Basu Ray has delivered invited lectures worldwide on yoga and meditation to prevent and treat cardiovascular diseases. He has delivered lectures to audiences at Harvard, MIT, Mayo Clinic, Case Western, Georgia Tech, to name a few. He also addressed the prestigious Indian Science Congress on Yoga and Cardiovascular Diseases in early 2020. Dr. Basu-Ray played a pioneering role in developing scientific methods to research Yoga using the latest technology. His current research uses Artificial Intelligence and other parameters like blood level of inflammatory markers to determine the risk of heart diseases and yoga to prevent it.


Dr. Basu-Ray has spearheaded public education to use yoga to prevent COVID-19 as an eminent physician and a professor in public health. He has written for multiple newspapers both in India and the US including having regular blogs in The Times of India and the Huffington Post.
