A pioneering program

This program is a pioneering work in the development of a mentoring framework for self-help/self-improvement and personal growth based on the teachings of ancient Vedic philosophy and spirituality.

For millenniums, the ancient Hindu wisdom beginning from the Vedic sages was conveyed through unbroken lineages of teachers. Over the centuries, countless spiritual masters, philosophers, thinkers and logicians, having experienced the truths of the ancient wisdom themselves, went on to develop the most sublime and sophisticated philosophical and scientific thought known to humanity to express this great truths of life. This body of spiritual knowledge is characterised by rational thought processes, objective enquiries, independent thinking, deep psychological understanding, Self and consciousness-based outlook and valuable insights into the universal principles of life and reality as well as systematic yoga methodologies.

Over the course of decades of studying, teaching and living Vedic spirituality as a way of life, it became evident to me that this spiritual knowledge is deeply relevant and can be effectively applied to provide guidance and solutions that modern society needs to manage daily life issues particularly those affecting human psychology, relationship and happiness in life. It became a mission to me to bring and apply this great ancient knowledge into the field of self-help. This program is the come out of years of careful study, research, observation and integration, bridging the ancient knowledge and the contemporary needs and issues.

A new paradigm

The human personality is an intricate composite. We are not taught in schools the nature and mechanism of the human personality, especially the mind and emotion and how to care and cultivate its well-being and create wholesome relationships and experiences in life. This program brings you this essential knowledge of life and living.

The most comprehensive model of the human constitution is found in the Vedic scriptures that the Hindu philosophy and spirituality uses as their basis for exploration into the human nature, reality and consciousness. This model is known as the Panchakosha model, and is structured in 5-layers representing the human constitution that includes the body, bio-energy, mental-emotional, intellectual and causal layers. This program’s framework is modelled after the Panchakosha. It details the various components and mechanisms and their relationship to life as well as their connection to our life issues. This program also contains a wealth of transformative and practical knowledge and yoga methods derived from the Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Sutras and Advaitic literature. This is a new paradigm to nurture personal growth, fulfilment, peace and happiness in the individual and society at large.
