The lineage of Masters of the New Future Society started with the Enlightened Yogini from France, Ananda Devi.  She received her initiations from the Gurus Sri Aurobindo and Sri Ramana Maharishi. In 1957 she founded ‘The International Council for Research into the Nature of Man’ in Mumbai,
and worked with high level spiritual and political leaders in India and the United States.  In 1958, Ananda Devi founded her first spiritual center in New York City.  In 1960, she met her American disciple, Premananda Deva, who with her teachings and initiations transformed his being, and experienced Enlightenment.  In 1962, they moved to Paris and founded another spiritual  center there with the idea to promote their unique discoveries in the field of psychological investigation and metaphysics, inspiring the necessity of an integral spirituality.  This would later become the foundation of all future work.

In 1994, the Master Ananda Devi passed away.  Premananda Deva retreated to the Himalaya Mountains in India.  It was there in the Tibetan refugee camp of Dharamsala that Premananda Deva met and initiated Lakshmi Devi.  While there, Lakshmi Devi received the powerful force and initiation from Premananda Deva and entered into her Atman, achieving the state of Samadhi (Enlightenment).

Premananda Deva (1921-2008) and Lakshmi Devi taught together in all over the world - Asia,
Europe, Africa, the United States of America, and South America.  They presented hundreds of conferences where they revealed the philosophies from their lineage, the transformative power of their methods and the necessity of a Spiritual Revolution.  They founded the New Future Society in 1995, along with centers in India (1995-1998), Washington D.C. (1998-2005), and Santa Marta, Colombia ( 2005 to 2013).

In 2010 Ishwara encountered his Guru Lakshmi Devi, which precipitated his retreat into introspection and meditation with the Master. Ishwara and Master Lakshmi now reside in Argentina and work on their project Leaves of Inspiration.

Today, New Future Society
continues with Centers in
the United States, South
America, and Europe.
