Basic schooling at St Joseph’s Higher Secondary School, completed Diploma in Civil and then passed Institution of Engineers (India) in Civil Engineering. Specialisation in Earthquake resistant design of Reinforced Concrete buildings. Served Government of India for 20+ years and taken voluntary retirement to embark upon long pending spiritual journey. Lived active social life, raising kids. Osho came in my life when Mr Chiman Singh Rathore, a telephone operator in local telecommunication department of Govt. of India visited my father wearing maroon robe in 1980 after taking sannyas from Osho and requested my father to do the same. I was witness of this whole conversation. He left 2-3 books of Osho on his table, and I started reading those books. I started practising the experiments that is suggested by Osho in those books and found very helpful too.
I kept reading his books and as suggested in his books I started practising Zen meditation from next year. After 10 years I came to know about awareness meditation and started practising it during brushing. This meditation is miraculous. It has changed me completely over a period of 20 years. I started experiencing spiritual glimpses from 2011, when our batch organised first ever reunion of our Government Polytechnic college. That helped me to take retirement and after retirement I got first synchronicity mement and then Philosia moment in 2017. It is also called as Satori in Japanese Zen. And in October 2021 I am able to experience separation of soul from body means beyond body experience. This experience helps one recognise life prior to that moment as futile running on a treadmill.
I started writing my experiences from March 2018, so that other people interested in spiritual journey could get benefit from my experiences as well as gain confidence that it happens and happening even today! So their efforts are not going to be in vain for sure- this confidence is a must to progress in this journey into the discovery of the unknown within.
