Asokananda (Harald Brust) 1955-2005

Reverence for those who have come before us

More than our teacher. More than our friend.

Asokananda died on Friday, 24th June 2005.
Deeply respected for his spiritual life, studies and teachings, we wish his light will forever stay with us. Through each massage we give, every student we teach, we will always be thankful for what he simply allowed us to discover and share, everyday.


Asokananda (Harald Brust, born in 1955 in West Germany) studied community development. From 1978 onwards he spent most of his time in Asia, where he was involved in the research into and teaching of yoga, Buddhist meditation and traditional Thai yoga massage.

His book, The Art of Traditional Thai Massage, was the first publication on that subject in any Western language.

Publications include a set of energy line charts for Thai massage therapy, and Thai Traditional Massage for Advanced Practitioners.

Sunshine Massage School gratefully follows Asokananda’s spirit.
