Iṣṭa Devatā is a Wikipedia contributor with an M.A. in Yoga Studies from Loyola Marymount University. He is a practitioner, teacher and therapist in the Yogic tradition. He has made pilgrimage to Jerusalem, the Camino de Santiago, Pipestone National Monument, and the holy Ganges river, where he has enjoyed the company of countless holy men and holy women. His personal philosophy is one of unbiased comparative religious studies with an underlying search for the signs of a perenial philosophy underpinning the various beliefs and practices of this world and its people.

His main contributions are to pages concerning the practices of Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, and Jain Yogas. This includes the history, mythology, anatomy, physiology, and related philosophies and metaphysics. He is also interested in comparative mythology, archaeoastronomy, and tantra. He is currently working on a Fulbright Grant proposal to study Yoga, Kalaripayattu, and Mallakhamba in Kerala. You are encouraged to use his Śiva stencil anywhere that needs a little yoga.
