Shreeguru Balaji has been born for a spiritual mission and had been an extraordinary child right from his birth. His father was aware of the child’s spiritual purpose and provided the necessary culturing for the child’s future. He was an authority on the ancient texts and the young boy’s initiation into the world of the Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas, mantras and other spiritual techniques began early. At the age of five he began a formal academic as well as a spiritual education and went on to obtain degrees in engineering and Ayurveda.
His spiritual responsibilities began at the age of thirteen with a darshan (vision) of Lord Dattatreya (He is the Manifestation of the Supreme and the deity of all Spiritual Gurus).
Shreeguru Balaji’s educational and medical work has been achieved as a corollary to his spiritual mission. He is, at the core, a spiritual preceptor to hundreds through direct initiation into Santulan Om Meditation - and indirectly, to millions through his projects, lectures, programmes and writings.
A spiritual initiation is a rebirth and the Master is friend, philosopher and guide on the precarious journey to the Self. Shreeguru Balaji is one such Universal Master in a long line of direct initiates of Lord Dattatreya. He believes that life is to be celebrated and his work leads one and all towards this goal to find one’s own way to balance, contentment and a state of constant bliss.
