Aziz Kristof

GURU RATING: 4 / 5 (GREAT)


Aziz Kristof (a.k.a. Anadi) is a Polish guru known for his teachings (in English) about the various states of spiritual enlightenment or consciousness. His expression veers on the intellectual but resonates with a distinct poetic quality that points to his self-realization.

As with many spiritual gurus, Aziz experienced a glimpse of his true nature in childhood. This propelled him forward. His journey took him to Korea and India.

Aziz has a special affinity for the Advaita teachings, though he is never shy to critique them when they go astray or are misinterpreted. For instance, he correctly reproaches certain Advaita teachers for not emphasizing, or even discouraging, spiritual practices. Refreshing.

The journey to wholeness

The spiritual enlightenment process, according to Anadi, is essentially the evolution of consciousness.

For instance, an animal that cultivates an ego, if that was possible, could be considered spiritually enlightened relative to its previous state of consciousness. The same holds true for people.

Aziz breaks down humanity’s evolution of consciousness into three distinct phases: enlightenment to the State of Presence, enlightenment to the State of Being, and enlightenment to the State of the Heart.

Challenge of expressing the ultimate

Is Aziz spiritually enlightened? Undoubtedly. His teachings are not for every seeker, however. Different paths exists for different types of people.

You will greatly appreciate his work if you can keep up with his writing style, which is complex, and if you have the capacity to appreciate the poetry of life.

Without the former, it may prove difficult to comprehend what he is actually saying. That’s a common criticism. Without the latter, his writing will come across as spiritual mumbo-jumbo. He’s not for everyone, but he’s certainly for some.

One imagines that these constraints would fall away were one to meet with him directly. He offers spiritual retreats that include intensive sitting and walking meditation as well as personal one-on-one meetings with him. If his writings appeal to you, don’t miss out on the opportunity.



“Beyond the turmoil of our phenomenal existence, beyond our insatiable search for happiness, lies hidden the great way, the inner way to our original state of wholeness and completion. Discovering the way, we finally realize the purpose of our creation and the meaning of our life on earth. Our true life as conscious existence dawns only the moment we awaken from the dream of the human mind and begin our journey into the heart of the self.” – Aziz Kristof

  1. I had been a student of (Aziz and later) Anadi for more than 15 years. His teaching is profound, but he does not live what he speaks. There is too much that he is hiding. A website is in the process of being created. There has been too much psychological and sexual abuse of students.

    • That was the main reason ( abuses of students by Anadi) given by Rick Archer for removing Anadi’s BATGAP interview.

    • Sat, I am also interested in your perspective. I think the dialogue is important. On alleged abuse – you’ve made an unsubstantiated claim which is a disservice to everyone so I look forward to the website or clarification. I’m also curious about counterproductive psychological or neurological impacts Anadi’s teaching have had on others, since I know I’m not the only one who’s suffered unnecessarily.

  2. Sat

    I would like to hear more about your experiences. You said you would be putting up a site?

  3. Hi, I’m interested in Anadi teachenig. I’d love to hear some more about your
